French police were aware that Paris shooter Abu Yusuf al-Beljiki had a violent past and was a radical extremist, but allowed him to leave prison 5 years early and remain in France, according to Russ Read, Pentagon reporter from The Daily Caller.
Beljiki, a resident of Paris’s Livry-Gargan suburb, stole a car in 2001 and crashed it into a police car.
The future Islamic terrorist then got out of the vehicle and fired at the 2 officers from the police car, wounding both.
Beljiki was arrested days later. He stole a gun from an officer while in custody, shooting the policeman 3 times. He then stole another gun from an officer while in his jail, firing 5 times before officers were able to stop him.
Incredibly, the violent and deranged Islamist was allowed out of prison years early on parole…just in time to go on another killing rampage this week.
The original prison term was set to last 20 years but was reduced to 15.
