The man cops now call a suspect in the Brooklyn subway shooting has a disturbing history of YouTube videos with radical views … which foreshadow violence.
Frank James‘ YT page has been pored over in the past 24 hours — following the NYPD naming him as the main guy they wanna talk to right now in the wake of 10 people getting shot in a train car Tuesday morning.
The content found has been troubling, to say the least … with several videos that tout extremist rhetoric and out-there stances on topics like race, COVID, crime and politics.
In one such clip, labeled “STOP ONE COMPLETE,” James says “you oughta die,” among other alarming quotes. To be frank, a lot of his rants don’t make much sense — but he seems quite agitated by the state of affairs in 2022 … and he invokes violent language to talk about much of it.
There’s also one very scary video that shows James inside of a subway car — where he’s filming people and the goings-on. The clip seems to be pre-2020, and it’s labeled “THE GOOD OLE DAYS.”
His videos don’t have too many views and he has few to no subscribers … so he was definitely talking into a void of sorts. And yet, they’re being widely circulated now as cops look for this man.
As we reported … upwards of 30 people were treated for injuries Tuesday. There are also reports of smoke inhalation … as the shooter appears to have used a flashbang of some kind to obscure people’s vision.
The aftermath was a bloody mess, with bodies and blood strewn all throughout the platform once the train finally arrived to its stop.
Fortunately, no fatalities yet and none are expected. A manhunt is underway for the perp … and NYC Mayor Adams has called for a national response to gun violence as a result. He also said there’d be changes on the city level … including more officers in the subway.
