A self-radicalized jihadist killed a 13-year old boy and severely injured two others at a birthday sleepover in Florida on Monday. Authorities knew about him for MORE THAN a year and did nothing.
The FBI monitored Corey Johnson for over a year as an ISIS sympathizer but they did nothing because he was a juvenile!
“…The FBI came together with the staff at William T. Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens, where he was a student at the time. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office received information Johnson supported the terrorist organization ISIS and had reached out to the group online, expressing his desire to join them…
……Initially, the FBI did not want to charge Johnson because he was a juvenile and “believed a redirection approach would be the most beneficial regarding his conduct.” So in March 2017, the FBI got consent to “mirror” Johnson’s computer activity…
…On March 5, Jupiter police checked in with the FBI to see where they were with the federal charges and the agent said the affidavits would be “coming in the next several weeks.”
Corey Johnson was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder.
The 17-year old, who said he recently converted to Islam, watched jihadist videos and read the Koran “to give him courage” so he could kill innocent people.
How the Crime Went Down
Johnson and the older boy in the home, Kyle Bancroft, reportedly watched violent jihadist videos that evening.
Johnson reportedly told police he woke up at 4 a.m. Monday at Kyle Bancroft’s home and had an urge to kill Kyle’s mother, Elaine Simon; Kyle’s brother, 13-year-old Dane Bancroft; and Dane’s friend, 13-year-old Jovanni Sierra. The three victims were each asleep at the time, the Post reported.
In his statement, Johnson said he stabbed the first victim [Sierra] because of “his [Johnson’s] Islamic faith.” He stabbed Sierra multiple times before slitting his throat.
Mrs. Simon apparently heard Sierra moaning from the pain and started walking around when Johnson allegedly turned on her. Police say he stabbed her at least a dozen times before they fell down the stairs.
Then Dane was stabbed 32 times while attempting to help his mother, according to the Palm Beach Post.
“He is a hero,” the boy’s father said during a telephone interview with the Post. “He saved his mother.”
Sierra was dead at the scene. Simon is in good condition. Kyle Bancroft and Johnson were not harmed.
Johnson was known to have “violent tendencies.”
The police were alerted after Simon ran to a neighbor begging to him call 911.
Johnson was taken into custody about 8 a.m. after briefly barricading himself in a room.
He later told authorities he was angry with Sierra, who turned 13 on Monday because it went against his Muslim faith. Johnson also said Dane poked fun of his Islamic faith.
The teen was also under investigation for threats that prompted the evacuation of a British school in October 2016.
Authorities were about to file charges against Johnson.
Notice this isn’t a gun crime. Like the mass killings we have recently witnessed, it’s a crazy crime by a madman. Authorities knew and did nothing. They had the right under the law to do something and did nothing.
