This case is all about Islam from beginning to end. Alton Nolen, who beheaded co-worker Colleen Hufford at the Vaughn food processing plant with a large knife, testified most matter-of-factly that he was neither radicalized or recruited or influenced by anyone or anything other than the Quran.
Nolen carefully explained his interpretation of the Quran and said no one guided him in the religion and that he came his beliefs on his own.
“If you’re not Muslim, you’re not on my side.”
He also told investigators he did not regret what he did at all and that he would have beheaded a second co-worker if he hadn’t been shot by the former owner of the plant, Mark Vaughan. He called Hufford a “slave to the devil” and described himself as a “slave to Allah,” stating “You know the Muslim is somebody who submits their will to Allah…Whatever he wants done, that’s what we do…And you know he wants us to get the oppressors out of this place.”
When asked if he felt remorse or regret for his actions, Nolen responded “no.” He said he would go to heaven. And so now, once this sentence is carried out, he will get his chance, and will find himself in a much warmer place than he expects.
On Sept. 24, 2014, ISIS inspired Islamic convert Alton Nolen entered a food processing plant in Moore, Oklahoma. He took out a butcher knife and beheaded Colleen Hufford and critically stabbed Tracy Johnson. Both were employees at the factory. Nolen, who had been recently suspended from the plant, was a practicing Muslim who was obsessed with gruesome Islamic State beheading videos going viral at the time.
Nolen was shot and apprehended after his rampage.
Nolen was facing either the death penalty or life in prison without parole after a jury trial in Oklahoma.
Friday, the judge handed down his sentence: Death.
Judge Lori Walkley took a jury recommendation for the death penalty after months of deliberation. Nolen’s defense argued that he was mentally ill and that his readings of the Quran affected his ability to discern right from wrong. However, recordings of Nolen taken from the hospital and played for the jury showed no remorse over the brutal attack….
