“He showed the coworker execution videos from ISIS and talked about his new ‘allegiance’ to the Muslim deity, police said.” Apparently the coworker did not think it “racist” or “Islamophobic” to turn him in to the cops, and that’s all to the good.
“Florida man pledged ‘allegiance to Allah,’ said he would dress as The Joker and shoot his boss,” by Jason Silverstein, New York Daily News, January 24, 2016 (thanks to Darcy):
A Florida man who pledged “allegiance to Allah” blatantly bragged about his plans to dress up as The Joker and gun down his boss, according to a police report.
Enrique Dominguez, 20, was arrested Friday after openly discussing his plans and stockpiling an apparent arsenal in his Miami-area home, according to the Miami Herald.
Dominguez last week allegedly revealed his sinister plot to a coworker at J&B Importers, a bicycle distributor.
He showed the coworker execution videos from ISIS and talked about his new “allegiance” to the Muslim deity, police said.
He then said he had just purchased a shotgun, and vowed to bring carnage to his workplace.
“I will dress up as the Joker from the ‘Batman’ movie and bring the gun to work during my break,” he said, according to the report.
After his arrest, police found a clown mask, duct tape, plastic wrap, gloves and two large knives inside a canvas at Dominguez’s home, police said. It’s unclear if officers found any firearms.
Dominguez told police he had bought a shotgun and planned to start his rampage after his “day of allegiance,” giving no further details.
Police said Dominguez, who has a Joker tattoo on his shoulder, posted pictures on social media showing him dressed as a clown and brandishing a collection of knives, which he called his “lil arsenal.”
Dominguez has been charged with aggravated assault. He is now being held on $5,000 bond and must stay under house arrest until facing a trial….
