Miguel Silva is apparently a convert to Islam. Where did he get the idea that his new religion required him to commit acts of violence against police?
Is anyone investigating the question of where he learned about Islam?
That might lead toward more people like him being apprehended.
Why isn’t this being done?
“Self-proclaimed ISIS terrorist arrested in Milford, police say,” by Christine Dempsey, Hartford Courant, January 24, 2020:
