The New York Times referred to the Nice, France terrorist as a “surly misfit” loner type with no evidence of radicalization. Shortly after the attack, a French minister said it appeared the attacker “radicalized very quickly.”
New information paints a much different picture:
BREAKING: French prosecutor says Nice truck attacker plotted attack for months, had accomplices.

It depends on what your definitions of “quickly radicalized” and “lone wolf” are.

@AP I think the 'bring more weapons' text telegraphed some sort of premeditated act.

As you might recall, MSNBC referred to the attack as a “truck crash.”
