This photo was taken seconds before Corporal Nathan Cirillo was shot in the back and killed by an IslamoNazi Supremacist by the name of Joseph Paul Abdallah Bulgasem Zehaf Bibeau*, who then ran into the Canadian Parliament Building firing randomly...until a real hero, Sergeant of Arms Kevin Vickers, shot him in the head...
Here are more pictures of Corporal Nathan Cirillo, via a poster named Blue Sky at WeaselZippers.us. Incredibly touching, Canadians are praying for him to have 'a great time in heaven' on his Instagram account.

* BURN IN HELL
Court records in Montreal show Zehaf-Bibeau was born in Quebec on 16 October 1982 as Michael Joseph Hall to Susan Bibeau, the current Deputy Chair of the Immigration Committee at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, after she had a brief relationship with Bulgasem Zehaf, a Libyan national who appears to have fought in Libya in 2011, according to the The Globe and Mail. In an affidavit, Bulgasem Zehaf claimed that the couple had a 'rocky relationship', but, nevertheless, married in 1989.
Included in the aforementioned affidavit, Zehaf said, 'After his birth, his mother, Susan Bibeau and I renewed our relationship and I also established links with my son...I was entitled to...look after his education, his security, and to give him all my love.'
Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was raised in Laval, Montreal's largest suburb, and, reportedly, attended private schools. In 1995, his parents petitioned the court to change their child's name from 'Joseph Paul Michael Bibeau' to 'Joseph Paul Abdallah Bulgasem Zehaf Bibeau.' Apparently, Bulgasem Zehaf was officially registered as his son's father at this time. Four years later, the couple divorced.
Court documents show that a man with the same name, who appears to be Zehaf-Bibeau, had an extensive criminal record for petty crimes in Quebec and Vancouver in the early 2000s. Twelve of the 13 cases brought against him in Quebec resulted in convictions. Four of them were for drugs possession – three for marijuana and one for PCP, for which he received 60 days in prison.
He was convicted of assault causing bodily harm in 2001 and received a suspended sentence and a fine. His longest sentence was for robbery, possession of break-in tools, theft and conspiracy in 2003, for which he was sentenced to two years in jail and three years probation.
Court records suggest that a psychiatrist found him fit to stand trial but a friend and fellow Muslim convert, Dave Bathurst, told the The Globe and Mail that he suspected Zehaf-Bibeau was mentally ill. 'We were having a conversation in a kitchen, and I don’t know how he worded it: He said the devil is after him.'
Bathurst told the paper that Zehaf-Bibeau had plans to travel to the Middle East, but had stressed that he only wanted to go to learn about Islam and study Arabic. RCMP commissioner, Bob Paulson, said officials were still investigating Zehaf-Bibeau’s motive behind the attack. Zehaf-Bibeau had recently applied for a passport. His application raised concern among the processors, and they contacted the RCMP to run a background check. After speaking to his mother on Wednesday, Paulson said the RCMP learned that Zehaf-Bibeau intended to travel to Syria.
According to The Guardian, Paulson also said on Thursday that Zehaf-Bibeau’s email address was 'found in the hard drive' of a Canadian who was charged by the RCMP with a terror-related crime. He said investigators were still working to understand the connection, if there was any, between to the two radicalised Canadian nationals. 'When we say a connection it is sort of the weakest of connections,' Paulson said. 'Clearly, given what’s happened, it’s strengthened.'
Police said they are investigating the now notorious photo of the shooter holding a gun with a scarf disguising the lower half his face. Who took the photo and where it was taken may offer important clues into the killer’s past that could shed light on his motivation for carrying out such a brazen attack.
