NYC: YouTube Prankster Tells Restaurant Patrons He Has Bomb, Will Kill Them for Allah



My latest in PJ Media:

It was all a big joke, you see, and really, what’s funnier than a jihad bombing? Back in February, a young man named Malik Sanchez, who refers to himself by the spectacular misnomer of “Smooth Sanchez,” published a nearly three-and-a-half-hour-long video on his YouTube channel, which has 5,400 subscribers, featuring himself walking along the streets of New York City and yelling abuse at passersby, mostly young women. In the course of things, he shouted at diners in a restaurant that he was going to blow them up for Allah. The NYPD wasn’t laughing: Sanchez has just been arrested.

According to the Daily Beast, Sanchez “was charged Wednesday with conveying false and misleading information and hoaxes. The teen allegedly livestreamed himself pretending to detonate a bomb near the Flatiron restaurant’s outdoor seating area while shouting, ‘I take you with me and I kill you all!’ and ‘Allahu Akbar!’”

Sanchez liked pretending to be a jihadi. “Days later, Sanchez posted a video in which he approached an enclosed outdoor eating area in front of a Flatiron restaurant, and then boasted to his followers that he was going to ‘enhance their meal.’ Walking up to two women seated at a table, Sanchez began to loudly shout ‘bomb detonation in two, in two minutes.’” Then he screamed: “I take you with me and I kill all you. I kill all you right now. And I kill all you for Allah. F**k, f**k that s**t. I’m gonna Allah. I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna f***ing do it for Allah. I’m gonna do it, for, Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar, Come on. I do it, bomb now, bomb now.”

This eloquent display caused six people to flee from the enclosed outdoor dining area, which the Cary-Grantlike Sanchez took as a victory, crowing: “Yo, all of them scattered….Holy s**t. Holy s**t, boys. That was f***ing five stars. That was five stars. Holy s**t, huh?”

In another video on March 20, Sanchez is seen “making hand gestures ‘mimicking pointing a gun,’” and he wasn’t entirely just fooling around to get YouTube views. A court filing states: “After multiple individuals attempted to get Sanchez to stop, Sanchez sprayed pepper spray in the face of one of those individuals. Sanchez was arrested by responding NYPD officers and charged with state offenses and was thereafter released on bail.”

Not only that, but once Sanchez had been arrested, police discovered that he had pepper-sprayed another woman previously, when she took exception to his videoing her.

There is more. Read the rest here.
