Fresno police say suspect in triple slaying told them he hates white people, shouted "God is great" before killings. https://t.co/rrSOzfEXaB— The Associated Press (@AP) April 18, 2017
The Associated Press made some major alterations in this story on Twitter.
The Fresno shooter didn't shout "God is great." He shouted, "Allahu Akbar!"
Muslim Kori Ali Muhammad killed three people, and shouted, "Allahu Akbar!"
From the Daily Caller:
The suspect, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, holds fervent anti-Trump beliefs according to his social media profile, and he told police afterward that he hates white people.It certainly seems that AP took pains to avoid making the Muslim connection to the suspect.
Rather than reporting the gunman’s literal words, however, the AP reported the gunman as saying “God is great.”
On Twitter, the AP’s report gave no indication that the suspect’s words were said in Arabic.
This was a hate crime targeting white people, committed by a Muslim.
Obviously, all Muslims are not responsible for the murders. So why is AP so afraid to report the truth?
