Immigrant Mass Murder/Disgruntled Minority Massacre: In Paris Stabbing, Most News Stories Won't Even Say "Muslim"
Print Friendly and PDF

In the typical "Immigrant Mass Murder," an immigrant like Seung-Hui Cho at Virginia Tech kills a bunch of locals because he's disaffected from society. In the typical "Disgruntled Minority Massacre" a member of a minority group (like Omar Thornton, Vester Lee Flanagan, or most recently DeWayne Craddock in Virginia Beach) kills a bunch of, generally white, fellow workers because he believes that they're racist.

This stabbing in France seems to combine the two.

Paris knife attack: Four dead in Paris police HQ stabbing

By Henry Samuel, Telegraph, October 3, 2019

Three officers and an administrative assistant were stabbed to death at Paris police headquarters by an employee who went on a rampage after evading security with a ceramic knife.

The 45-year old, named by local media as Mickaël H, had worked for 20 years in the IT department of the police intelligence section in offices in Paris’ central île de la Cité, a stone’s throw from Notre Dame cathedral.

He was shot dead at the scene after killing three men and a woman.

Police sources said the assailant, who reportedly converted to Islam 18 months ago, was "in conflict" with his superiors. Police last night said they had not determined a terror links.

Interior minister Christophe Castaner said the assailant had had "never shown any behavioural problems". The police were “struck to the heart” by the exceptionally grave incident, he added.


His wife was also taken in for questioning. Christophe Crépin, spokesman for the union France Police Policeman in Anger, said: "I, unfortunately, know this man. He worked in IT and he had long-running problems with his superior.” “He lost the plot and stabbed her first and then colleagues intervened and were stabbed as well.”[More]

What else you need to know about this disgruntled Muslim convert is that he was

"was born in the French Caribbean overseas department of Martinique."

As far as I can tell from Google, that information used to be in the Telegraph story above, and has been removed. But that suggests that in addition to being an immigrant, he's also a racial minority.

The Daily Mail has more (full name is Mickael Harpon)  but no pictures.

Well, one picture, but because they've blurred his face out of respect for the dead, or to avoid horrifying people, you can't even tell what race he is.

And most of the press in the world would have you think this is a normal Frenchman who is disgruntled for no reason; look at their headlines:

daily mail wins the prize again
