Would be ISIS fanatic suicide bomber has been STOPPED! Thanks to the brave and quick thinking of SWAT. Aaron Driver, 23 had planned to go through with a suicide bombing mission during rush hour…but what he had planned, is not even close to what actually transpired.
He was shot by police in a dramatic raid after he detonated an explosive device, injuring himself and one other, CBC News reports. He reportedly had another device which he was going to detonate.
Driver, who was originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, was arrested last year for openly supporting Islamic State on social media.
He was not charged with a crime, but in February, he was placed on a peace bond, a court order that restricted his movement, required that he stay off social media and computers and not associate with any terrorist organization, including ISIS.
Driver’s lawyer and the prosecutor agreed to the peace bond stating there are ‘reasonable grounds to fear that he may participate, contribute directly or indirectly in the activity of a terrorist group.’
He was known to authorities for tweeting about his support for ISIS under the alias Harun Abdurahman, including urging the group to target the Canadian police and military as well as praising the attack on Parliament Hill in October 2014.
This was in Canada, and that is terrifying. God Bless our first responders, and their quick thinking and willingness to protect and serve against twisted monsters like this!
