Social media posts from a suspect wanted in connection to a mass shooting attack on New York City’s subway on Tuesday showed leftist, racist, anti-Trump views, according to reports.
“Police identified Frank R. James, 62, of Philadelphia as a person of interest in the case,” CBS News reported. “They say James rented a U-Haul van that might be connected to the shooting.”
ideos from the attack on the subway showed that the air was filled with smoke from smoke bombs that had been detonated. The suspect fired dozens of rounds during the attack, hitting at least 10 people. Another 19 people were injured in the chaos that ensued from the attack.
Heavy.com, a fact-finding website, identified a Facebook page allegedly belonging to the suspect which contained numerous posts that talked about shooting people and expressed other extreme views, including “black nationalism.”
Andy Ngo, Editor-at-large for The Post Millennial, tweeted out screenshots from the Facebook account that showed posts that promoted the Black Liberation Army, Black Lives Matter, a photo of the man who murdered five police officers in Dallas in 2016, a photo calling to “kill all the whiteys,” posts quoting communist Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, posts expressing support for shooting people, and posts demonizing former President Donald Trump.
