Green expressed that he felt ‘fear, hunger, loss of wealth, and diminution of fruit.’ In another post, he said there was ‘much confusion in this day and age in my perspective,’ citing ‘the ongoing COVID crisis, unemployment, rising National Debt, division within the political sphere, rumors of war and the like.’

He wrote that ‘my faith is one of the only things that has been able to carry me through these times and my faith is centered on the belief of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as Jesus, the Messiah, the final divine reminder in our midst.’

Another post, from March 17, 2021 included Green stating that the Nation of Islam teachings had helped him ‘graduate with distinction, earn a well-paying job straight out of college, and pursue my graduate degree, despite not growing up in the best of circumstances. My ultimate goal was to learn business.’

He said he wanted to improve ‘the communities of the black and brown’ in the United States. However, he wrote that he was no longer on that path, saying, ‘the path has been thwarted, as Allah (God) has chosen me for other things. Throughout life I have set goals, attained them, set higher ones, and then been required to sacrifice those things.’

Terrorism related? 

The fatal attack ‘does not appear to be terrorism-related but obviously, we’ll continue to investigate to see along those lines,’ acting Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee said.

Contee also said there ‘does not appear to be an ongoing threat.’

‘Obviously, we’re in the very early stages of our investigation,’ he said.

‘We need to obviously understand the motivation behind this senseless act. So the Metropolitan Police Department will certainly be doing that.’

The suspect doesn’t appear to be anyone with whom cops are familiar and there’s ‘no indication’ he was targeting any member of Congress, Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman said.

Friday’s episode comes as the Senate and the House of Representatives are currently in recess for the Easter holiday.

The lockdown of the Capitol was lifted shortly after 3 p.m.

A 12-foot fence, topped with razor wire, was erected around the Capitol to restrict access and block traffic following the Jan. 6 riot reports the nypost.

Of note, the barricade was taken down about a month ago and replaced with a shorter, 8-foot fence that pulled in the perimeter and allowed vehicles to pass by.
