Here we go — cue the “mental illness” experts. “Mental illness” is the scrub, the whitewash for jihad. And the speed in which it is employed in law enforcement circles and media reportage is nothing short of terrifying. The whole of the world is convulsing under threat of jihad terror — complex, overwhelming security apparatus and systems are employed at every level, at every moment of our daily lives — and the zeitgeist is to bow, submit and polish the ideology behind this world war.

The media didn’t miss the opportunity to give the imam at the attacker’s mosque wide berth to proselytize and promote Islam. Sheesh.

The driver — of an older-model maroon Honda Civic — had eluded authorities despite multiple PIT maneuver attempts made by Los Angeles Police Department officers.

CHP spokesman Officer Mark Latulippe identified the driver as 34-year-old Karl Flores, describing him as a veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Officers could be seen approaching the vehicle with a K-9 about 2:13 p.m., removing Flores from inside and placing him in handcuffs. Officers had fired a “less-lethal” round from a shotgun at him, and the dog bit him, Latulippe said.

Flores appeared to receive medical aid as officers took him into custody on the side of the freeway.

Hostage negotiators had worked with Flores’ wife to try to get him to surrender, Latulippe said.

The chase began in the area of Sepulveda and Washington boulevards about 10:50 a.m., when Culver City police officers tried to stop the Honda following a vehicle code violation “and suspicion that the vehicle was possibly stolen,” according to a police news release.

But when police couldn’t confirm if the vehicle was stolen and the motorist continued with “erratic driving,” officers stopped chasing him out of concern for public safety.

Shortly after that, an LAPD helicopter spotted the Honda striking someone on a motorized scooter, and Culver City police again began chasing the Honda until Los Angeles officers could take over, the Culver City Police Department news release stated.
