Terror suspect detonated bomb, about to set off second when killed by police, family says – Nat Post

In an interview with the National Post, Wayne Driver confirmed his son, an ardent ISIL supporter, had died when police raided the Strathroy, Ont., home where he was living with his sister.

“Yes, it was Aaron my son who was shot and killed earlier today. Our worst nightmare has come true. As sad and shocked as I am, it doesn’t surprise me that it has come to this. Aaron was a good kid who went down a dark path and couldn’t find the light again.”

The father said he did not understand how the 24-year-old was able to compile bomb materials while he was the subject of a terrorism peace bond. But he said he did not blame the police for their actions.

A suspected ISIS sympathizer believed to be the lone suspect in a suicide bomb plot on a major Canadian city was killed Wednesday during a dramatic police takedown in a southern Ontario town, CTV News has learned.

Aaron Driver, 23, was killed inside a home in Strathroy, Ont., a community about 225 kilometres west of Toronto. He was well known to Canadian intelligence and police officials for his support for the Islamist terrorist group.

Police believe Driver was acting alone in the alleged plot, and there is no threat to public safety. But officials were swarming the Strathroy house until late Wednesday night, concerned about what may have been inside.

    Since I am the first comment in …. “He was a loner, rejected by girls, had mental problems and was teased and rejected by the other kids”.

    On a more serious note:
    And So it Begins…..

      “He was a loner, rejected by girls, had mental problems and was teased and rejected by the other kids”. Just like the prophette.

    And of course the Toronto Star continues to be the only entity in the world that uses the word Daesh in regards to islamic terrorism. Yes, they are reporting he is a follower of Daesh.

      In brief, the Toronto Star sucks Satan’s dick.

      • The Star is a pile of crap, it will go under.

          I see they just laid off 50 in the news room. That should cut down on the sex orgies and physical fights among the staff.

            The ejectees should have little difficulty slotting into PR soft seats on the GLLKDW, Shiny Pony, or Nutty Notley gravy trains providing they haven’t blotted their CVs with anything resembling rational thought.

    It’s a sad day when we can’t contact the ISIS dead.

    • Also a sad day when journalists can’t write a clear headline.

      Words are their only tool and they can’t even use the little ones correctly.

        It’s brutal out there. Every time I pay for something these days it gets screwed up.

        Easier to do it yourself. My roof only lasted 7 years because the guy didn’t read the instructions on the package and installed them wrong.

    According to authorities, he was going to detonate a bomb during rush hour in a major city. Does London with its population of 381,000, and just minutes from Strathroy, constitute a “major city” ? The London with a muslim population of over 30,000.

      I’m sure when he saw the Arabic writing on the cop cars there, he would change bomb locations.

    In that top photo he just looks just pathetic. Geez! Those chin hairs! Even seriously Oriental men can do ten times better than that.

    I can’t tell you how shocked I was when I discovered that he went to a mosque in London, ON. It really threw me for a loop.
