A judge has ruled that Alek Minassian is criminally responsible for the 2018 Toronto van attack, finding him guilty of 10 counts of first-degree murder and 16 counts of attempted murder.
A quote from the article
"Minassian told police following his arrest that he was a member of the "incel" movement, an extreme online community consisting of men who claim to be "involuntarily celibate."
He later told psychiatrists that he only aligned himself with that group because he knew it would garner more attention online."
Good to know. So no one can use this against us
Some people in other incel forums mention that he's still an incel by definition because of his autism and possible inability to get a date.
Still, that doesn't mean his attack was based on "incel ideology".
