A perfect way to always remember Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel. They should take their dogs for a walk by the spot and have the K9’s urinate on it.
Mohamed had been granted his French residency permit 6 years prior. Meaning, the migration department should be made responsible for the murders he committed. People need to sue the government for compensation and treason.

Angry mourners in Nice have stopped to spit and throw rubbish on a so-called ‘hate memorial’ at the spot where Bastille Day terrorist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel was killed by police.
In contrast to the flowers and candles left at each location where an innocent victim was killed, locals have been piling stones and throwing cigarette butts at the point on Promenade des Anglais where the killer was shot dead.

One local has scrawled ‘Assassin’ in red paint on the ground.
Meanwhile, investigators have failed to establish links between the Bastille Day killer and Isil – despite the terror group claiming him as a ‘soldier of Islam’. France’s interior minister has played down the likelihood that the plot was orchestrated by a wider network as Bouhlel’s mobile phone records reportedly showed he used dating sites to meet both men and women.

Bouhlel, who dabbled with drugs and drink, was ‘unbalanced’, French official Bernard Cazeneuve said.
The phone was picked up by police officers after they shot him dead last Thursday in a lorry that he had used to kill 84 people on the Promenade des Anglais, in the French city of Nice.
According to officers, the phone is proving more important to the investigation than the seven suspects currently in custody.
Three of those arrested have been transferred to the anti-terror centre in Levallois-Perret, near Paris. Local newspaper Nice Matin quotes a police source saying they have found evidence that the attacks were planned ‘for weeks or months’.
A one-minute silence is taking place at midday on Monday in Nice in a ceremony at the Monument de Centenaire on the Promenade des Anglais.
Anti-riot police are expected out in force amid security fears. It has also emerged that only 35 of the dead have been formally identified because some bodies are so badly mutilated.
There were also revelations about how concerned neighbours had reported Bouhlel, a father of three, for attacking his own children, aged five, three and 18 months. [*this is normal Muslim male conduct and perfectly acceptable in Islam]
“Social services were concerned about what he was doing to the youngsters, and wanted to keep him away from them,” said an investigating source.
Two particularly unpleasant incidents saw Bouhlel defecate on his daughter’s bed, and also rip open another child’s favourite cuddly toy with a knife.
The source added: “Evidence of these attacks was provided in the form of photographs, and the suspect soon moved out of the family home.”
Bouhlel, a Tunisian national, was originally given a 10-year residency permit in France in 2009 after marrying his cousin, Hajer Khalfallah, in Nice.
She was originally arrested and questioned by anti-terrorism judges but has now been released without charge.
Bouhlel regularly beat his estranged wife, and she had applied for protection from the authorities. [* this too is perfectly normal in Islam and Muslim men are encouraged to beat their wives. The fact that he beat her shows that he was indeed following his religion. If authorities consider him deranged for behaving like a normal Muslim male, they should take a hard assessment what to do with the rest of Muslim men they have brought into the country.]
As France prepared to mark a minute’s silence to remember his victims, it emerged that Bouhlel’s psychological state had deteriorated in recent months.
Beyond drinking alcohol, eating pork and smoking drugs – all practices strictly prohibited to Muslims – he picked up homosexual lovers on dating sites.
Mr Cazeneuve told RTL radio on Monday that Bouhlel’s alleged links with radical Islam currently relied solely on Isil’s claims of responsibility for the Nice carnage, which they released on a website at the weekend.
“We can not ignore the fact that he was an unbalanced and very violent individual, and it seems that his psychology demonstrates these traits,” said Mr Cazeneuve.
If Bouhlel had indeed become an Islamist in the last days of his life, then it was due to ‘rapid radicalisation’, said Mr Cazeneuve.
A spokesman for Paris prosecutors, who are leading the investigation into the Nice slaughter, said 49 victims remained critical in Nice, with 18 of them still fighting for their lives.
The total number of injured was 249, and they included 35 children. Only 35 of the 84 dead have been formally identified, the spokesman added.
