The headline to this WXII story is “Former Student Sentenced In UNC Crash.” Crash? There was no “crash” in the sense of an accident. Taheri-azar, by his own admission, was trying to kill students by hitting them with the SUV, and did so — again by his own admission — because he believed the Qur’an directed him to kill infidels.
“Former Student Sentenced In UNC Crash,” from WXII12.com, August 26 (thanks to WDW):
HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — The former college student who pleaded guilty to plowing his sport utility vehicle into a crowd at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will spend up to 33 years in prison.
Mohammed Taheri-Azar was sentenced Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court.
He pleaded guilty to nine counts of attempted murder earlier this month for the March 3, 2006 attack at a popular outdoor gathering spot on campus.
The 25-year-old said he was avenging the deaths of Muslims by the U.S. across the world….
Yes, and he said much more, also.
