What We Know About Car-Ramming Murderer of Capitol Hill Police Officer

What We Know About Car-Ramming Murderer of Capitol Hill Police Officer

Noah Green was an unemployed Nation of Islam follower. His family claims he may have been suffering from mental health issues

Twenty-five year-old Nation of Islam follower Noah Green rammed his car into a Capitol Hill barricade, killing Officer William “Billy” Evans and wounding another officer.  Green then exited his vehicle wielding a large knife and was shot and killed at the scene. Here’s what we know about Green.

Here’s what Capitol Police tweeted shortly after the incident.

Since then, more information about suspect Green has surfaced.  According to reports, Green considered himself a member of the Nation of Islam, a black Islamic organization that even the Southern Poverty Law Center has deemed a hate group.

Heavy.com reports (archive link):

Green’s Nation of Islam beliefs emerged through a review of his now-deleted Facebook page by Heavy, although police have not specified a motive and say they don’t believe the attack was terrorism-related. On Facebook, as recently as March 2021, the suspect expressed admiration for Elijah Muhammad, the now-deceased Nation of Islam leader who was a mentor to Malcolm X. Green referred to himself as “Noah X.”

. . . . Britannica calls Muhammad the “leader of the black separatist religious movement known as the Nation of Islam (sometimes called Black Muslims) in the United States.” Farrakhan is a Nation of Islam leader noted for his Black separatist teachings and anti-Semitic comments.

The Southern Poverty Law Center considers the Nation of Islam a hate group, writing that it considers whites “devils,” and indicating, “Since its founding in 1930, the Nation of Islam (NOI) has grown into one of the wealthiest and best-known organizations in black America. Its theology of innate black superiority over whites and the deeply racist, antisemitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric of its leaders have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate.”

The Facebook posts reviewed by Heavy did not mention any presidents or political parties; they seemed fixated instead on Nation of Islam religious teachings and a sense of a troubled world.

Heavy.com includes screenshots of numerous Facebook posts by and photos of Green, including one of some kind of Nation of Islam “certificate of completion” that he posted last month.

On March 17, Green posted a “certificate of completion” from the Nation of Islam. It was labeled “Saviors’ Day Gift 2021” and was presented to Noah X of Norfolk, Virginia for “recognition of your sacrifice in making your word bond and completing your 2021 saviors’ day gift in the amount of $1,085.”

Heavy.com also notes that Green’s Christopher Newport University (CNU) biography includes his desire to have met Malcolm X (presumably before he rejected the Nation of Islam and was murdered by its adherents).

The CNU biography gives some details about Green, including that he wished he could have met Malcolm X.

“Personal — Noah Ricardo Green was born in Fairlea, W. Va…Son of Mazie and Newotn Green…Has seven sisters and two brothers…Favorite sports personality is Russell Westbrook…Dream vacation is a trip to Jamaica…Person in history he’d most like to meet is Malcolm X…Most impressive person met is his grandmother…Favorite movie is Spiderman…Majoring in Business,” the brief biography reads.

Andy Ngo also grabbed some information from Facebook before Green’s account was removed.

 

Green’s family and friends have expressed shock that Green committed this deadly crime and suggest that he had possible mental health issues.

USA Today reports:

Noah Green, 25, was identified as the suspect in the attack that killed one U.S. Capitol Police officer and injured another, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the inquiry. Those who knew Green described him as quiet, athletic and non-violent but also told USA TODAY they were concerned about recent changes in his behavior.

. . . . Green was born in West Virginia but spent most of his life growing up in a sparsely populated area of Virginia with a large family, including nine siblings, USA TODAY learned through multiple interviews. He was athletic, playing basketball and football growing up.

He graduated from Christopher Newport University in 2019, where he played football as a defensive back, a spokesman for the school in Newport News, Virginia, told USA TODAY . . . .

Andre Toran, who was a captain on the football team at the time, said Green was a “really quiet guy” who would crack jokes every once in a while but usually just smiled instead of chiming in on conversations.

“I know people say this all the time, but the guy who I played with is not the same person who did this,” said Toran, a reporter at the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky, part of the USA TODAY Network.

Toran said while he moved away to attend graduate school in Chicago, Green’s mental state became an issue of concern among their friends.

Toran shared a Facebook post from Green during the COVID-19 pandemic in which Green accused his roommates of drugging him. Green wrote that he’d moved out but was suffering from withdrawals that included seizures and a lack of appetite, along with “paranoia” and “depression.” He wrote in the post that he was also experiencing “suicidal ideation.”

. . . . KC Humphries, who attended CNU with Green, told USA TODAY they worked together at the school’s gym.

“He kind of came off as the average football athlete,” she said.

But, she added, she noticed the recent changes in his social media posts.

“They were very weird. It was posts about joining his church and ‘one day you’ll see’ kind of stuff,” Humphries said. “It was just a lot of weird, kind of cult stuff.”

. . . . One of Green’s brothers told The Washington Post that Noah Green appeared to have mentally unraveled in the last several years. He abruptly moved from Virginia to Indiana and told his brother, Brendan, he was suffering from hallucinations, heart palpitations, headaches and suicidal thoughts. Brendan Green told the paper his brother informed him the drugs told him to move to Indianapolis.

In Indiana, Noah told his brother that people were attempting to break into his apartment. Brendan Green said he flew out to Indianapolis but didn’t see anything suspicious and told The Post that Noah’s “mind didn’t seem right.”

A few months ago, Noah Green moved to Botswana, his brother told the Post. The brothers kept in contact and at one point, Noah told Brendan that “his mind was telling him to basically commit suicide” and said he’d jumped in front of a car, Brendan told The Post. Several weeks ago, Brendan allowed Noah to come live with him after Noah said he was “in a really bad situation.”

Cue the handwringers: “But people with mental issues are kind and loving and are more likely to be victims than take victims!”

Is there some pressure group we could identify who would pop up after these incidents to say the exact same thing about wypipo?

Do not EVER cite the Southern Poverty Law Center. It is not a credible source and should not be treated as such.

So one random guy has without question killed a Capital Police Officer. In contrast with the ‘attempted insurrection’ where months later we are still awaiting a definitive answer as to whether the Capital Police Officer who later died succumb to injuries incurred during the ‘insurrection’ or another cause.

The primary point of this somewhat morbid post is that attempting to use a body count to ‘keep score’ as the gun grabbers do, is a very poor measurement. It doesn’t tell the story or provide context.

The second point is that this recent act demonstrates once again how basically non violent the actions of the ‘ insurrection’ were. Trespass, sure. Criminal mischief, sure. Breaking and entering, for a very few absolutely. Widespread violence against persons, no not even close.

    When we first heard about the murder of the officer, my wife asked me who was the killer.

    I said that since the media did not released any info, we know who was NOT the killer – it was NOT a caucasian male, a Trump supporter, a Republican or anyone except a person of color or a muslim.

    That’s why all the coverage was about the officer who died and not about who killed him and why the killer did it

“May have been.”

“I know people say this all the time, but the guy who I played with is not the same person who did this,”

That quiet guy who could not connect is EXACTLY the person who did this.

If we could persuade our country to ease back in the focus on race, we could perhaps focus more on mental illness. This young man, from the small amounts of information we have, appears to have had serious mental health issues that escalated over the last couple of years. Such issues happen in young men with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorders, and sometime in their 20s these young men can no longer hold it together. Some commit suicide, others commit terrible crimes.

This would require our country to see mental illness as perhaps the single most important social issue harming our country today. I would suggest that’s true.

    I doubt we’ll see any easing back on the race baiting. It’s been a huge success for manipulating the feeble minded masses and makes a perfect distraction for the racketeers in DC to pick everyone’s pocket.

    I’m curious if this dude grew up on psyche meds.

    You have to know the script. White guy kills black guy–hate crime, white supremacist, Black guy kills white guy–mentally ill, really systemic racism because white supremacists denied him mental health care.

    We really screwed up mental health in this country at several key points since the 1950’s. First, we didn’t expand the capacity of the asylums leading to some horrific treatment, of which normal folks were appalled.

    But take a read of this by Christopher Rufo. Well worth the read.

“large family, including nine siblings” Was Green’s mother a welfare queen?

    The real question is how many transient sperm donors? 80-20 odds favor this. Every act from POC is mental illness… every non-POC …er non-BIPOC is racist. Convenient.

This does seem to be a politically motivated act of terror by a man indoctrinated into the leftist/Nation of Islam point of view to me.

When angry enough evil starts looking like good and we need to stop letting the inciters be they Biden or Farrakhan off the hook.

What happened to term “radicalized?” Sounds to me like this terrorist was radicalized by the radical Nation of Islam.

“The motive may never be known.”

I first learned of Noah’s affiliation with the Nation of Islam from NBC’s Pete Williams twitter feed not long after it happened. Then I heard Pete Williams report on “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt” that evening. We were eating dinner in the kitchen but we could hear the TV in the living room), and it sounded like Williams forgot to mention in his report that Noah is black; a Muslim; and that he had a connection to the Nation of Islam.

How odd.

I told my dinner companions that because he is black, a Muslim and he used a knife rather than a gun, the Democrats and the media will not be able to mine the tragedy for their political agendas, so we probably won’t hear much about it after the first day.

    “I told my dinner companions that because he is black, a Muslim and he used a knife rather than a gun, the Democrats and the media will not be able to mine the tragedy for their political agendas, so we probably won’t hear much about it after the first day.”

    You underestimate the ingenuity and sleazy craft of our self-anointed moral and intellectual betters! I can just hear the Joseph Goebbels media now: “If the suspect was white he would be alive.”

    Nation of Islam has about as much to do with Islam as the “Black Hebrew Israelites” have to do with Judaism or ancient Israel (nothing). Actually the comparison is a pretty good one because both are racialist radicals who decided to create a race based religion and used the names of other non-Christian religions to try to steal credibility.

My Local news showed his picture and mentioned mental illness but no mention of Nation of Islam. my opinion is all these attackers are mentally ill so I’m satisfied. Another network showed a clip of Jan 6 Trump folks in the story. That made me mad.

Here’s what I know. He’s not white, not conservative and therefore the story will be erased from public memory in a week.

When do Muslims suffering from Sudden Jihad Syndrome ever not have “mental health problems”? It’s the go-to misdirection of choice.

Here on our local news, a loathsome NBC affiliate, the smug, smart-assed, 15 year old (looking) weekend “anchor” proudly proclaimed that Officer Evans was the SECOND Capitol Police Officer killed in the line of duty at the People’s House.

The global-elite-mainstream-media couldn’t tell the truth if their lives depended on it. I guess they’re lucky…it’s only OUR lives that depend on the truth.

Officer Sicknick, the first one, was not killed in the line of duty and that has been firmly established, but the MSM merely continues to bait their lockstep followers with lies and sleight-of-mind magic.

    Could you provide source he wasn’t killed in the line of duty?

    We know he wasn’t bludgeoned to death but if he couldn’t get medical care because his buddies where busy stopping rioters and his medical condition was triggered by bear spray than he was killed in the line of duty.

    There is a difference between manslaughter and murder but even if the bear spray had no impact at all without a riot his buddies would have seen to it that he spent the night in a hospital instead of dying and spending it on a slab of granite (or is it marble?).

    To put it another way would Officer Sicknick still be alive without the riot?
