Let Us Not Forget Another Unnecessary Murder
It’s important to note that the killing of an army recruiter doing his job should, like the killing of George Tiller, be roundly condemned. One private was killed and another wounded by a gunman identified as Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad. Just as Dr. George Tiller was serving women and ensuring their reproductive rights, Pvt. William A. Long of Conway, Arkansas, was serving his country when he was gunned down. Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula remains in stable condition as a result of the shooting.
Muhammad, who was born Carlos Bledsoe, says he was angry about wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is a recent convert to Islam, having done so on a trip to Yemen. Contrary to those who wish to make it a left/right deal comparing this heinous act to the one that cost George Tiller his life, both shootings need to be condemned unequivocally.Click here for reuse options!
