Esteban Santiago, the man who has been identified as the Florida airport shooter, was ‘known to the FBI’.
In November, Santiago reportedly walked into an FBI office and told agents that he was being ‘forced to fight for ISIS’.
The police sent him to a mental hospital.
Whether they followed up with him is not yet clear.
Santiago’s brother told media yesterday that the shooter had been under psychological care for mental health issues.
There were also reports that the shooter got into altercations with passengers on the plane.
Is he mentally ill or connected to ISIS? Or mentally ill and connected to ISIS?
This picture raises more questions.
His attire and mannerism was raised on Fox.

The scarf he is wearing appears to be a keffiyeh and the one finger salute is a common ISIS posture, what the Fox commentator refers to as an ‘ISIS gang sign’.
This may indicate a greater connection than just a mentally ill man claiming to be connected to ISIS.
