CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Authorities say 23-year-old Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, who drove a silver Jeep Grand Cherokee into The Pit at the UNC-Chapel Hill campus around noon Friday, may have acted to avenge American treatment of Muslims.
Police intend to charge Taheri-azar, who graduated from UNC in December with a dual degree in psychology and philosophy, with nine counts of attempted murder and nine counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, said Capt. George Hare of the UNC Department of Public Safety.
Wally wonders why he heard nothing of this until Sytman and Boze were discussing it on KTTH. I listen or read national news everyday and don’t recall hearing anything. Is the national media afraid to say anything negative about Muslims? Do they have an agenda? Is it more profitable to report how bad westerners, Jews, and Christians are? Where are the Muslims community comments either for or against this action?
Well we probably won’t ever know the answers to these questions, but I’m sure that this youth’s actions will encourage all Americans to be kinder to the Muslim persuasion. :)Tags: National Issues, Media Issues, Islam
