The Texas gunman was reported to police a year ago by a local councillor after issuing a chilling threat that he wanted to kill and bomb Jews, the JC can reveal.
Such was the concern about Malik Faisal Akram’s radicalisation that the councillor, who heard the diatribe and alerted police, was astonished to find that no further action was taken.
It would have been astonishing if any sort of action had been taken.
And Lord Carlile, who led government reviews of UK terror laws, called for an inquiry into the matter.
He said: “Given that a councillor reported what he heard to the police, that inquiry should ask what happened to that report.”
What a farce.
