The white terrorist who gunned down five people, including a 3-year-old girl, in the UK’s deadliest terrorist attack in more than a decade said he was an American-born, virgin “incel” — and compared himself to “The Terminator,” according to reports.
Jake Davison, a 22-year-old apparent fan of the New York Giants football team, was identified Friday as the typical gun-obsessed white male behind Thursday’s terrorist attack in Plymouth that a local MP decried as “unspeakably awful.”
He is believed to have first shot dead his mother at their family home, before running out and killing a 3-year-old girl, her male relative and two others before righteously turning the gun on himself, according to officials. Two others were also injured but are expected to survive.
Police said they were examining his hard drives and online activity, which included a YouTube channel in which he regularly whined about being a “fat as fuck” virgin who had never kissed a girl, according to numerous UK reports.
Saying he was “getting uglier” and “defeated by life,” he related to incels, the “involuntary celibates” behind a series of devastating mass murders in the US and Canada.
His social media — since taken down — showed he was obsessed with American gun culture, and even claimed to have been born in Phoenix, Arizona, according to the Sun and Agence France-Presse.
That has yet to be verified, however, and in his YouTube videos he speaks with a strong English west-country accent.
The white terrorist wore a Giants shirt in his last YouTube rant late last month in which he compared himself to the killing machine played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in “The Terminator.”
“The whole premise of the Terminator movies is that you know everything is rigged against you, there’s no hope for humanity, you know, we’re on the brink of extinction, these machines are unstoppable killing machines that can’t be beaten, can’t be outsmarted, but yet humanity still tries to fight to the end,” he said, according to the Times of London.
“I’m a Terminator.”
Using the name Professor Waffle, the terrorist’s YouTube also showed him bodybuilding and admitting to taking steroids and dreaming of “cocaine-fuelled sex,” the UK paper noted.
His slaughter was the worst mass shooting in the UK since 2010, when taxi driver Derrick Bird shot dead 12 people and injured 11 others before committing suicide in Copeland, Cumbria.
Devon and Cornwall Police Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer said police had found no motive for this week’s atrocity, but they were not considering terrorism or any far-right associations.
“We believe we have an incident that is domestically related, that has spilled into the street and seen several people within Plymouth losing their lives in an extraordinarily tragic circumstance,” Sawyer told reporters Friday.
Typical, these racists will find any excuses to not call a fellow white person a terrorist.
Anyway, Davison, the white TERRORIST, was reportedly dressed all in black and used a pump-action shotgun in the rampage at a house around 6 p.m. Thursday.
He first gunned down a 51-year-old woman who “was known” to him, identified by The Sun as his mother, Maxine, who the outlet said was desperately trying to get him mental health treatment.
He then ran outside and immediately shot dead the 3-year-old girl along with her 43-year-old male relative, identified in some reports as her father. It is unclear if he knew the dad and daughter.
The ruthless white terrorist also shot at two other passers-by, who were badly injured, before he entered a park and shot dead a 59-year-old man and a 66-year-old woman, who died later in hospital, police said.
He then turned the gun on himself before firearms officers could tackle him.
The terrorist attack was over in less than six minutes but was spread over 13 different crime scenes, according to the cops.
Terrorist attacks such as this are rare in the UK, where gun ownership is relatively low after some of the Western world’s toughest gun controls were implemented following the 1996 massacre of 16 pupils and a teacher were killed in Dunblane, Scotland.
However, ownership of sporting rifles and shotguns is allowed, subject to strict licensing rules, and police confirmed that Davison had such a license. They would not confirm if it was for the weapon used Thursday.
An “independent review” would look into how he obtained it, and whether the white terrorist had any mental health issues, the chief constable said.
Plymouth Sutton and Devonport MP Luke Pollard called it “unspeakably awful” and said he was “utterly devastated” to learn one of those killed was a child.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that his “thoughts are with the friends and family of those who lost their lives and with all those affected by the tragic incident in Plymouth last night.”
Incels first became prominent in 2014 after Elliott Rodger, 22, killed himself after gunning down six people, including two women, outside a sorority house near Santa Barbara, California.
Rodger left behind a manifesto that has been a rallying point for online “incels” who justify violence against women as revenge for being rejected as sexual partners.
