The disturbing video shows attacker first espousing far-right talking points, then driving to synagogue. He grows frustrated when he cannot enter & shoots random woman in street. Appearing to improvise, enters business & kills another before fleeing (others appear to evade him).

Attacker identifies as “Anon,” meaning “anonymous user”—a nod to chan boards & other sites. Based on this vid, he appears to have worked alone. His car was loaded w seemingly homemade weapons along w laptop and camera, suggesting a disturbing degree of planning behind his attack.

As horrific as the attack was, several variables (his seeming panic, locked door at synagogue, poor function of weapons) stopped it from resulting in something far deadlier, especially considering how many were presumably in the synagogue for Yom Kippur & his abundant weapons.

The similarity between this video and New Zealand attacker’s underscores that these are not isolated attacks by people merely holding similar beliefs. Today’s attack is another installment from a global terrorist network, linked together via online safe havens much like ISIS.

This manifesto document, which appears to have been created a week ago on October 1, gives yet more indication how much planning and preparation Stephan Balliet put into his attack. His self-made weapons give further suggestion of this.

Like other far-right attackers, Stephan Balliet seemed to be inspired certain subcultures of online chan boards. To that point, it seems the stream to his Twitch video of his attack was first posted to a chan board.

I hope he gets the maximum sentence for his crime. He should be made an example of.

I'd rather see him go through reform and come out in opposition to things like this if possible. If not, a heavy sentence will at least keep him away from people he wishes to harm.
