A fascinating new Pew Research Center study reveals how conservatives and liberals interact with their friends who post about politics on Facebook. Conservatives tend to have circles of friends who mirror their political views, and liberals are more likely to cut ties online with those who disagree with them politically.

Pew reports that “roughly 4 in 10 consistent liberals on Facebook (44%) say they have blocked or unfriended someone on social media because they disagreed with something the person posted about on politics.” In comparison, 31% of conservatives and only 26% of all Facebook users have reported to do the same:

He was being investigated by the RCMP. The authorities had taken his passport away to prevent him from joining jihad.

Nevertheless, police believe that a suspected radicalized Muslim deliberately set out Monday to target military personnel, stalking a Quebec parking lot for at least two hours before running over two Canadian Forces members.

Just days before, the suspect had been involved in a family-law court litigation.

Sources have confirmed that the driver is 25-year-old Martin Couture-Rouleau, who converted to Islam recently and called himself Ahmad Rouleau. The Sûreté du Québec has confirmed that the Canadian Forces member who died Tuesday is 53-year-old Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.

According to Quebec judicial records, Mr. Couture-Rouleau had a scheduled family-law court hearing last Friday. The details of the case cannot be made public under provisions of the Quebec Civil Code.

In addition to his family litigation, Mr. Couture-Rouleau was known to acquaintances and authorities for his recent conversion to Islam.

His evolving views had come to the attention of law-enforcement agencies.

RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson confirmed Tuesday that Mr. Couture-Rouleau was among 90 suspected extremists that the force was investigating.

Mr. Paulson also confirmed that the authorities had seized his passport.

The commissioner said the RCMP does not think that Mr. Couture-Rouleau had sympathizers, “but we’re open to that and we’re concerned about that, so we’re going to be pursuing every investigation avenue to satisfy ourselves that we’ve eliminated that possibility.”

The RCMP say they arrested Mr. Couture-Rouleau in July, 2014, when he was trying to leave the country to head to Turkey. They stopped him and questioned him but let him go for lack of evidence.

Appealing for more witnesses to step forward, Quebec provincial police said Tuesday that the suspect was seen sitting in his Nissan Altima as early as 9:15 a.m. It was about 11:30 a.m. when he aimed his vehicle at two military personnel, said Lieutenant Guy Lapointe, a spokesman for the Sûreté du Québec. He also confirmed that the suspect carried a knife with him when he was shot dead in a confrontation with police.

“The working thesis right now is that it is a deliberate act,” Lt. Lapointe said.

He added, however, that there is a parallel investigation focusing on what the suspect’s motivation could be.
