Officials in France say they've detained nine people in connection to the
brutal beheading of a teacher who had allegedly shown caricatures of the
Prophet Muhammad during a civic lessons.

Police say the teacher was near his school in the Paris suburb of
Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on Friday when an 18-year-old Chechen refugee
attacked him and cut his throat. Authorities say the attacker was later
shot dead by police after he didn't respond to commands to disarm and
acted threateningly.

Citing French media, the BBC reports that the teacher began receiving
death threats following a lesson on freedom of expression in which the
caricatures were said to be shown. The lesson was set in the context of an
ongoing trial over the 2015 killings at Charlie Hebdo, the satirical
newspaper that came under attack for its caricature of the Prophet
Muhammad.

Fourteen suspects are on trial on accusations of giving logistical support
to the assailants, who killed 12 people in that attack.

Speaking at the teacher's school on Friday night, French President
Emmanuel Macron called the decapitation an "Islamist terrorist attack."

"One of our compatriots was murdered today because he taught ... the
freedom of expression, the freedom to believe or not believe," Macron
said.

France's anti-terrorism prosecutor, Jean-Francois Ricard, said a terror
investigation has been opened, The Associated Press reported.

Police have detained nine people since the attack, including the suspect's
parents, grandfather and teenage brother, according to the AP.

Ricard told reporters that the suspect was living in Normandy on a 10-year
residency and was not known to intelligence services. During his standoff
with the police, he had been armed with a knife and air-soft gun, which
fired plastic pellets.

A text claiming responsibility for the attack, the prosecutor said, and a
picture of the victim were found on the suspect's phone, according to the
AP.

Officials and Muslim leaders throughout France expressed outrage at the
slaying.

"We are all affected, all touched by this vile assassination," said
Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer in a video message, according to
the AP.

"A civilization does not kill an innocent person, barbarism does," Tareq
Oubrou, imam of a mosque in Bordeaux, told French media, the BBC reports.

The Guardian reports that a man claiming his daughter was in the victim's
class had posted to social media, saying that during a lesson, the teacher
had shown an image of a naked man and called him "the Muslim prophet."
Depictions of the Prophet Muhammad are prohibited by the Muslim faith.

Before showing the caricatures, the teacher had reportedly asked Muslim
students to raise their hands, allowing them to leave the room if they
wished. The caricatures had been published in Charlie Hebdo, the Guardian
reported.

Parents, former students and locals shared the remorse over the teacher's
death. Flowers appeared outside his school on Saturday. Several also took
to social media to express grief.

The French presidential palace said a national tribute will be held for
the teacher at a later date.

No collusion - Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III, March 2019.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp. Obama sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood
queer liberal democrat donors.

President Trump has boosted the economy, reduced illegal immigration,
appointed dozens of judges and created jobs.

Senile loser and NAMBLA supporter Nancy Pelosi got "Trumped" on February
5, 2020. "President Trump, Not Guilty."

Muslims are conservative religious fantatics no different than the
