17 year old incel terrorist attacks "massage parlour", kills one and wounds two

A Toronto teenager has become the first Canadian ever charged with carrying out an "incel"-inspired terror attack.

The 17-year-old boy is accused of fatally stabbing a woman in February.

Incel, short for "involuntarily celibate," is an online subculture focused on members' perceived inability to find romantic or sexual partners.

A 2018 attack in Toronto that killed 10 was also allegedly inspired by the ideology, but the accused in that case was not charged with terrorism.

On Tuesday, Toronto Police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) issued a joint press conference announcing the terrorism charges.

The suspect, who cannot be named because he is a minor, had already been charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder shortly after the incident, which took place at an erotic massage parlour.

Police allege he fatally stabbed Ashley Noelle Arzaga, 24, who was discovered inside the building around 13:00 local time on 24 February. Two other people, a man and a woman, were found outside the premises with stab wounds.

If he's upset about the fact that he's a virgin, or just not getting laid, maybe instead of killing sex workers he should have sex with them.
We would be a lot safer if the Government would take its money out of science and put it into astrology and the reading of palms. Only in superstition is there hope. - Kurt Vonnegut Jr

And no, Cuba is not a brutal and corrupt dictatorship, and it's definitely less so than Sweden. - dann

In light of recent events in Sweden, I thought that Swedes looked down on johns and punished people who pay for sex:

Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
