BREAKING: Normandy church knifeman was ‘convicted terrorist monitored with electronic tag’

The as-yet unnamed individual attempted to travel to Syria in 2015 to fight with Islamic State but was arrested in Turkey, it has emerged.

According to French media, the assailant should have been living with his parents under a court order.

I-tele reported the suspect, who was shot dead by police during the siege, spent nearly a year in prison before being released on March 2.

    Well according to both le monde and lefigaro

    One of murderers was extradited from Switzerland to France back last year

    Anyways what the hell happened with the electronic tag?

    The clusterfcuks are so numerous that heads have to roll. There must be a reckoning.

    Well, I guess the electronic tag makes it easy to find the bodies.

      This is France. Perhaps they’re the latest fashion accessory ;o)

        Kind of like those “no rape” bracelets they were handing out a couple of weeks ago in Germany or Sweden? They don’t seem to be working either.

        • John

          Oh yeah, those!

  • These people are fanatical suicide killers willing to die for what they believe. I don’t think a piece of plastic strapped around their ankle will deter them from doing that.

    Or maybe the “experts” think a better alternative to the atomic bombing of Japan’s kamikazi culture during WWII would have been to send boatloads of ankle bracelets instead.

      I’m so very glad these halal-pricks are being martyred , spend no more money on these animals , expensive law courts, cushy jails with halal meals, prayer rooms with foot-sinks, toilets facing the correct direction , custom Imams to roll our prayer rugs , korans untouched by infidel hands …..

      • Slickfoot

        Toss the bodies onto the landfill and bill the family for the bullet.

        • Rosenmops

          Bury them in pig shit.

    Well now I am sure that had France used our “peace bonds” instead, none of this would have happened.

  • irishrus

    the kind of tag they need is on a 4′ spit up the ass
