Back in September the FBI was quick to declare the beheading of an Oklahama woman wasn’t linked to terrorism and that story was quickly buried. But since Obama’s bosses at CAIR scream loud enough, the FBI is rushing in to investigate the murders of three Muslims in Chapel Hill, NC. Once they figure out the guy is a hardcore leftwinger this investigation will go nowhere.
As thousands of mourners prayed for the three Muslim-American students killed in Chapel Hill this week, the FBI opened its own investigation into the case Thursday.
In a brief news release late in the day, the FBI said it had launched “a parallel preliminary inquiry to determine whether or not any federal laws were violated related to the case.” The FBI had previously been called in to assist the Chapel Hill police in processing evidence from the crime scene; the new inquiry could broaden the case’s jurisdiction and potentially bolster the charges against the suspect.
The FBI’s announcement came hours after a somber funeral, where 5,500 mourners gathered at N.C. State University. Crowds knelt on a large blue tarp spread on a university soccer field across the street from an Islamic center in West Raleigh.
Three caskets – one gray, one white, one silver – were carried on the shoulders of men who chanted as they entered the field. The caskets were placed on the field, an imam sang the call to prayer and the crowd fell silent. There were several separate prayers, and the mourners bowed down, placing their heads to the ground.
Afterward, the three were buried in an Islamic cemetery near Wendell.
Newlywed Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23; his wife, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21; and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19, were killed in a shooting Tuesday in Chapel Hill. A neighbor of Barakat and Yusor Abu-Salha, Craig Stephen Hicks, has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder.
Police have said a parking dispute may have led to the slayings, though families think the motive involved animosity based on the victims’ Muslim faith.
The father of the two women who died, Dr. Mohammad Abu-Salha, took the stage at the funeral and called on President Barack Obama to have the FBI carefully examine the motivation behind the slayings.
“This has hate crime written all over it,” Abu-Salha said, his voice rising.
Whatever the case, assuming he’s found guilty we hope he’s quickly executed.
