DC police claimed at a press conference that the ram attack on Capitol Police “did not appear to be terrorism-related,” before the suspect was identified as a Black Nation follower of the ‘Islam.
As National File reported, the now-deceased suspect in the Capitol Police car and knife attack on Friday has been identified as 25-year-old Noah Green, a Nation of Islam follower from Indiana. years:
Green is a black man who is said to have posted inflammatory articles on politics and religion on Facebook… An article on the Facebook profile would contain an excerpt from the founder of the nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, titled “Lull before the Storm”… Another article by Green talks about “The End of Time” and “Facing Death”.
Yet the idea that the attack which left a Capitol Hill policeman dead and injured on Easter Friday, one of the holiest days in the Christian calendar, could be linked to terrorism, was rejected by Robert Contee of DC Metro Police at a press conference.
Contee said the attack “does not appear to be terrorism-related” but admitted that they should continue to investigate and “just don’t know at this time”. It is not clear why Contee apparently ruled out the possibility before the identity of the suspect was revealed.
Green drove his car into two Capitol Hill cops just after 1 p.m. Friday, then hit the north barricade gate on Constitution Avenue, Acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman had previously confirmed. Green then exited the vehicle with a knife and approached other officers. Capitol Police officers then hired Green with gunshots, after he did not respond to verbal orders and began to pounce on them.
Green’s Facebook page was deleted shortly after he was identified, media reports confirmed later.
