The link to Buchanan’s Facebook page in the report below has already gone dead. In any case, the screenshot makes Buchanan’s mindset clear: “Read the Qur’an because it is the true word of God…”

“Could the Suspect arrested in a Shelbyville, Tennessee Shooting Spree be a Jihadi?,” by Jerry Gordon, New English Review, October 6, 2016 (thanks to Robert):

September 27 – October 02, 2016: Shelbyville, TN: Three churches were shot up in the Shelbyville, TN area starting on the night of Sep 27, 2016. The Horse Mountain Church of Christ was shot 16 more times the night of Sep 29. The Philippi United Methodist Church along with another church was also struck by 7.62 x 39 rounds on the 29th. (7.62 x 39 rounds are consistent with an AK47 or a SKS rifle) The Bedford County Agriculture Center was also attacked with gunfire on the 29th, shattering the front glass. There were also reports of utility boxes being shot during this time.

An October 4, 2016 Shelbyville Times Gazette report on the apprehension of Buchanan noted the seriousness of the charges, but without identifying the ideology behind it…
