    Interesting that The Times identified the victims relegion in the lead. Why would that
    be relevant?
    "Police officials in Chapel Hill, N.C., said on Wednesday that a man had been arrested in the shooting deaths of three Muslim students at a condominium complex near the University of North Carolina campus."

    Relevant because, crimes by Muslims can't be called out and spelled out as such, but crimes AGAINST Muslims is a different story.

    Muslim activists worldwide are upset about the lack of news coverage of this event.

    At 3:00AM EST they were wondering why there was no coverage. LOL.

    And, Sally Kohn is all worked up about the lack of coverage this morning -- despite the fact that it's one of the top stories on every network and news website.

    But, there probably is one reason why the cable channels haven't gone wall-to-wall:

    Police charged a North Carolina man Wednesday with the murder of three Muslim students, but any motive for the shooting wasn’t immediately clear.

    The shooting occurred about 5 p.m. on Tuesday, when police responded to gunfire and found the three victims dead in their apartment in Chapel Hill. All three were shot in the head, WRAL reports. The suspect Craig Stephen Hicks, 46, described himself online as an “anti-theist,” according to a local ABC affiliate. Police said he turned himself in and has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder.

    The victims were identified as Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, and his wife Yusor Abu-Salha, 21, and Abu-Salha’s sister, Razan Abu-Salha, 19, of Raleigh, the Charlotte Observer reports.

    MSNBC just said the shooting might have been over parking. Seriously.

    I would have guessed Chicago, with out "tradition" of dibs, would have led to a murder over parking before North Carolina.

    We did have someone cut the brakes of a neighbor who didn't respect dibs though.

    Hmmm. They keep misspelling 'redneck teabagger.'

    Wow. This sounds like a very important story. I bet the murder rate by atheists in America is very high and underreported.

    You think the anti-theist is a tea part member?

    Well, to be fair, in the 20th century, millions were killed in the establishment of atheist regimes.

    I have to give him credit for a couple more IQ points than the average bagger (maybe 75 instead of 60) for thinking up the idea of the false-flag Facebook page.

    The Times lead on Ft Hood shooting:
    "An Army psychiatrist facing deployment to one of America’s war zones killed 13 people and wounded 30 others on Thursday in a shooting rampage with two handguns at the sprawling Fort Hood Army post in central Texas, military officials said."
