UNC Terrorist Update

The radical Islamist who drove his SUV into a crowd of people at UNC-Chapel Hill has been indicted:

A man charged with trying to kill students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by driving through a popular campus gathering spot was indicted Monday on nine counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Mohammed Taheri-Azar, a UNC-Chapel Hill graduate, also was indicted on four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and five counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Taheri-Azar is accused of driving through the gathering spot, known as the Pit, on March 3, hitting nine people. He has said his actions were in retaliation for the deaths of Muslims throughout the world caused by the United States.


When he gets convicted and sentenced to at least 20 years in prison, it will hopefully give others in America pause for thought before acting on a vendetta against "the oppressors of Muslims." Then again, the types of people who engage in this sort of jihad aren't usually the types of people that deal well with reason.
