The hometown newspaper of Alton Nolen – who now goes by Jah’Keem Yisrael – has new information about the suspect in the brutal Oklahoma murder.
Via Truth Revolt:
Nolen Yisrael is a graduate of Idabel High School in nearby Idabel, Oklahoma, about four hours southeast from Moore where the attack occurred. Nolen was a football player and, by available accounts, not a religious person at the time. A teammate, speaking to Truth Revolt, describes him as “normal” and “a good football player, but not great.”
Local newspaper McCurtain Gazette reports (no online edition is available):A classmate of Nolen’s, who didn’t wish to be identified, told this newspaper that he spoke to a close family member of Nolen’s today.He told this newspaper that according to the family member, Nolen was telling coworkers Thursday of an Islamic teaching that said women should be stoned for an offense, and that an argument followed the mark, Nolen was later fired and returned later Thursday, when he beheaded Colleen Hufford, the family member said.
The Gazette reported that Nolen/Yisrael has a long rap sheet, having been arrested “at least 10 times by Idabel police between 2004 and 2009,” on “allegations ranging from assault, burglary, obstructing an officer, resisting arrest, drug possession, and larceny.”
According to his classmates, he converted to Islam while in prison in 2011.
