Jeep Jihadi to Plead Guilty

Via the News & Observer:

The man accused of driving a rented SUV onto the UNC campus in March and striking nine people told a judge he plans to plead guilty to the charges against him. Mohammed Taheri-Azar entered the courtroom this morning to ask that he be allowed to represent himself. A judge had ordered the public defender's office to work with him while it was determined whether he was competent.

But after being told he would have to submit to a psychiatric evaluation in order to do that, the 23-year-old said he would rather keep his court-appointed lawyer.

Taheri-Azar told Superior Court Judge Carl Fox he had met a few times with the psychiatrist and psychologist and "they don't appear to be very good psychologists and psychiatrists in my oinion[sic]."

Taheri-Azar has said in letters and in a 911 call that he wanted to kill people to avenge Muslim deaths around the world when he drove a rented SUV through The Pit, the main gathering spot on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus, March 3.

Do you think UNC-Chapel Hill will finally admit this was a homegrown Islamic terrorist attack?

Me neither.

Update: I've been told that it isn't unusual for Carolina graduates to refuse psychological evaluations, so perhaps we shouldn't read too much into that part of the story.

If UNC students hadn't once talked about how bad Osama was, this young "freedom fighter" wouldn't have felt the need to run down other UNC students.

Why do we grant visas to people who openly hate our way of life?

Why do we grant visas to people who openly hate our way of life?

Because the State Department is reponsible for granting visas, and State hates our way of life, too.
