Following the ISIS claimed attacks in Paris where at least 129 innocent people were killed and hundreds more injured, a man in Canada wearing a Joker mask posted a video on YouTube promising to kill one Muslim or Arab a week.
The video was posted Tuesday on YouTube, but has since been taken down. In it a man speaking in a Quebecois-sounding accent said that starting next week he would kill an Arab or a Muslim each week all across the province.
He was brandishing what appeared to be a handgun and said he had like-minded people on board who would help him to carry out the threat, reported the National Post.
Quebec provincial police, Sûreté du Québec, wouldn’t confirm or deny investigating the video.
Montreal’s police (SPVM) said they were aware of the video and were trying to establish whether the person falls under their jurisdiction.
“If you make threats on social networks or on the web, there are very concrete consequences in the real world, the criminal code allows us to press charges against people who do things like this,” SPVM spokesperson Laurent Gingras told Vice News.
