Earlier today an unidentified gunman carrying what was described as a Kalashnikov appeared at a shopping center in Paris. The unfortunate gentleman, presumably suffering from some form of mental illness, reportedly shouted “Allahu Akhbar!” (which is Arabic for “Down with systemic racism!”) while terrorizing shoppers.
The shopping center was evacuated. Some witnesses said they heard what sounded like gunshots, but no injuries were reported. Police were unable to find the gunman, and then inexplicably called off the search for the suspect.

Paris: Police Inexplicably Call Off Search for ‘Allahu Akhbar’ Gunman at Les Quatre Temps Shopping Center
by Amy Mek
This morning, June 30, a manhunt was deployed in the business district of La Défense, at a shopping center just outside Paris, Les Quatre Temps (also known as 4-Temps). Police called off the investigation with the unnerving explanation that they could not find a suspect.
In 2015, this specific shopping center was singled out as a terror target in video released by Al Shabaab, the same terrorist group that killed 60 people in a Kenyan mall in 2013.
A shopper at Les Quatre Temps first reported that he had spotted a man carrying a machine gun around 9:30 am “confirming what several witnesses report.” Additionally, according to International news organization ok diario, “others claimed to have seen someone throw a glass bottle on the ground to the cry of ‘allahu akbar’.”
One female witness at the shopping center “heard explosions resembling gunshots”. She adds, “There was a crowd movement then everyone ran out.” Another witness named Olivia who is employed a Cafe in the center agrees, “I heard two shots. I was panicked. I went out and ran. “
The military and police completely locked the entire area, including La Defense train station and evacuated terrified shoppers who can be scene rushing out with their hands raised over the heads.
According to a news correspondent citing a police source, the man on the loose is “athletically built, wearing a black mask and is carrying a machine gun.”
The investigation was called off after police reported they found no suspicious individuals:
“Investigations of the area are ending. At this stage no suspicious individual has been spotted,” the police department said in a tweet signalling the end of the operation.
It is strange that police would call off a search for the stated reason that a suspect was not found. One would think that multiple eyewitness accounts would be enough for officers to maintain a presence in the area.
In virtually every instance of jihad attacks in France, politicians and media hide the identity of the attackers and downplay the incident. In rare cases when the identity of an attacker is leaked, the suspect is presented as possibly suffering from mental health issues and the story is suppressed.

|00:06||In the shopping center Les Quatre Temps a man with a Kalashnikov was seen,|
|00:11||and the police were notified. They ended up evacuating the building.|
|00:51||The news portal Sputnik is reporting on the incident. Their correspondent on location|
|00:56||says the police are still trying to locate the suspect, but they already have a profile.|
|01:00||According to a Sputnik correspondent citing a police source, the man is athletically built,|
|01:08||is wearing a black mask and is carrying a machine gun.|
|01:11||These reports have not yet been officially confirmed by the police.|
|01:15||Further information about the suspect is still unknown,|
|01:18||as well as whether his motive is political or religious.|
|01:21||However, other sources alleged that he was heard screaming|
|01:24||“Allahu Akhbar”, which isn’t really very surprising.|
|01:27||That’s the latest news, and I’ll keep you informed|
|01:30||of further developments in the pinned comment below.
They don’t have security cameras everywhere? What is Europe coming to when you can go out to a shopping mall and not have your every move and gesture secretly recorded in meticulous detail?
Granted, the police were looking for a muslim buck carrying a Kalishnikov while braying the superiority of his god. Those are a dime a dozen in Paris; more numerous than cowflops in a pasture. One wonders why the police didn’t grab the first one they crossed paths with since most are likely guilty of multiple crimes, mischief, or just general unpleasantness…
Moon, I like how you think.
Yesterday I read of the incident at the ‘Daily Express’ website. However when I went back a few hours later to see if there were more details – the whole report had disappeared and no reports elsewhere.
Something strange is going on.
Yep white people are under attack from multiple sources (YouTube,Facebook,schools and so on)they don’t want the terrorists being painted in a bad light after all this might lead to whites realising that immigration is not a good thing and the ensuing fight back begins
Perhaps the shots heard took out the trash but the Police prefer to pretend he got away and cancel the traditional riots that often accompany the passing of scumbags blamed on Police.
That’s a highly-excellent observation and one I never thought of.
My own alternative explanation is the in the US, we’re used to police who are motivated to find criminals. In the third world, the police leadership and the criminal heads are often intertwined. And in any case, the police know if there is any political heat, their leadership won’t back them up. So, the police actively avoid contact with real criminals, and ramp up their statistics harassing productive (and safe) citizens on technicalities.
This is the sort of policing we will expect to see in the US from now on. It’s more obvious than ever that the political leadership and chain of command will dump on the street cop if there is any heat. Why in the world would a street cop go out of his way to apprehend or interfere with, any criminal, especially a black criminal?
So, a shopping mall in a lower working class Paris suburb with nobody to go to bat for them? Who cares? The police are not going to go out of their way to look for a suspect. And any cop who does, will wind up either dead, fired, or in jail.
The police heard he had a “BLM” T shirt on that is like a permit to create mayhem ,loot ,and destroy so the search was called off.
