Strange: Man Stabs Two After “Discussion Of Religious Beliefs”

Did you hear about this one? Probably not, because this textbook definition of a “hate crime” was barely covered outside of Detroit. The Washington Post came up with a very interesting headline

Police: Man stabs two after asking about religious beliefs

A Detroit man stabbed two people at a suburban bus stop after asking his victims whether or not they were Muslim, according to police. Federal authorities are now looking at the case as a potential hate crime, police said on Tuesday.

Both of the victims were standing at the bus stop outside of Detroit with the suspect on Saturday, Southfield Police Chief Eric Hawkins said. Several people there “engaged in conversation” until the suspect, identified by Hawkins as 39-year-old Terrence Lavaron Thomas, “asked some of the folks there if they were Muslims.”

Two of them answered, the chief told The Post on Tuesday: They were not Muslims.

So, he stabbed them. Because he is a Muslim.

He fled the scene, and was quickly caught by police (which is shocking in a city where it takes 58 minutes on average to answer an emergency call). The two people who were stabbed were treated and released from the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Michigan’s hate crimes law defines “ethnic intimidation,” a felony, as when a person acts “maliciously, and with specific intent to intimidate or harass another person because of that person’s race, color, religion, gender, or national origin.”

Strange. I thought it was only White Males who committed hate crimes. The original headline of “Man stabs two at bus stop after asking them if they were Muslim” was obviously a bit too much for the Washington Post, as they surely didn’t want to highlight any violence from Muslims, in a city that is increasingly becoming more Muslim, particularly via conversions, in a city that is already ultra-violent.

I wonder when we will get a lecture from Obama about this. Will we get another “No one in the United States of America should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like or how they worship”, like with the Chapel Hill attack? The Chapel Hill attack was apparently not over religion. This was. Perhaps we’ll get a lecture on ancient acts of Muslims in attempting to take over Spain.

BTW, Terrence Lavaron Thomas most likely voted for Obama and Democrats, if he voted at all, since Detroit voted for Obama over 70% in 2012, and Blacks voted over 90% for the same.
