In the wake of the carnage left in an Orlando nightclub by an Islamic State-inspired terrorist, another radical Islamist murdered a French police officer and his wife from late Monday night to early Tuesday morning in front of the couple’s three-year-old son.
Police rushed to the scene and were able to bring Larossi Abballa down before he could inflict harm on the young boy.
French security expert David Thomson reported that the convicted terrorist posted a live stream video of the murders of Jean-Baptiste Salvaing and his wife on his Facebook page, as well as images, according to the Mirror.
The Facebook page, which was under the name “Mohamed Ali,” was deleted shortly after the 13-minute video and 15 photographs were posted.
Thomson, who works for the Paris radio station RFI, said that one statement on Abballa’s Facebook page was particularly chilling.
After stabbing the officer and his wife to death, he posted, “I still don’t know what I’m going to do with him,” referring to the toddler.
A spokesman for the Paris Interior Ministry later described the boy as “extremely shocked but otherwise unharmed,” and added that the murders of his parents were “an abject terrorist act.”
Abballa, 25, received a three-year prison sentence in 2013 for “association with criminals preparing terrorist acts,” but only served a few months of that sentence before being released.

This is despite that he’d been in trouble since 2011 for theft and acts of violence.
He often called for the murder of police officers and journalists through social media, and was thought to have maintained ties to a group sending jihadists to the Middle East to assist Islamic State terrorists.

The Associated Press reported:
The Islamic State’s Amaq news agency cited an unnamed source as saying an IS fighter carried out the attack late Monday. While the extremist group has not officially claimed responsibility, French President Francois Hollande said it was “incontestably a terrorist act” and that France faces a threat “of a very large scale.”
Two people close to the attacker, identified as 25-year-old Larossi Abballa, were detained, authorities said Tuesday. They gave no details about them.
“Today every police officer is a target,” Yves Lefebvre of police union Unite SGP Police-FO told The AP.
It’s all over — not just France. The question is, what are we going to do about it?
