Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 06:12 PM by spooked
He deliberately drove an SUV into a crowd to "avenge the deaths or murders of Muslims around the world."

Terrorism coming home to roost?

UNC graduate charged with attempted murder in campus crash

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. A recent University of North Carolina graduate has been charged with nine counts of attempted first-degree murder.
The charges come a day after he allegedly drove an S-U-V through a popular gathering spot on the Chapel Hill campus.

Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar (REH'-zah tah-ur-eh-ZAHR') is also charged with nine counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to cause bodily injury.

The university's police chief says Taheri-azar told investigators he wanted to -- quote --"avenge the deaths or murders of Muslims around the world."

1. Need to fix that headline, it's nine counts of ATTEMPTED murder
not murder.

5. More proof that W is losing the War on Terror: terrorists now home-grown
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 06:29 PM by Tin Man
One need only read the headlines from Iraq, or North Carolina, to understand that we're losing the War on Terror under the current approach.

GWB: worst president ever.

6. Too late for the Lizzy Grubman Defense
The trick, you see, is to yell 'fuck you white trash'
as you throw the SUV into reverse.
Result: a slap on the wrist.

This fellow is obviously not versed in American law.

Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 06:54 PM by bbinacan
I know the area called "The Pit" well. It's a place to hang out between classes and is also a place where political debates happen. At noon, it is especially crowded because the dining hall is there. This idiot clearly carefully planned this. If you are familiar with the campus, you know that the Pit is not easily accessible to vehicles. Also, he knew when it would be most crowded and he would have the most targets. Whatever the motivation, this guy is an asshole and should rot in jail.

Doing this shit at my alma mater? Yes, I'm one pissed off alum. :mad:

11. Agreed
The only way I can think of to get to the Pit is to come around the far side of Davis Library (well, maybe the most direct). Either way, it does require planning.

12. My understanding is
that he came in between Lenoir and Davis and left between Davis and the Student Union. Not easy to do.

10. Most fortunately:
from the link---

"No one was seriously hurt in the incident, which occurred just before noon Friday. Five students and a visiting scholar were treated for minor injuries and have been released from the hospital."

14. You're so right. I've
heard 9 people were hit and none had serious injuries. So glad. Initial reports were that the SUV was doing 40-45 mph. Knowing that part of the campus, I don't see how he could've been going that fast.
