Jihad Watch reader Dominic calls this "a clear case of suicide by cop
by a teen who could easily pass for Hispanic/Latino" -- in other words, the idea that this shooting was motivated in any way by "ethnic prejudice" against Muslims is ridiculous
, and even more so when you see Arian's threatening behavior in the video above. Dominic adds: "He called 911, claimed to have a gun which he planned to use against cops. Video clearly shows him aiming something at cops MANY times before cops kill him. Nonetheless, Islamist shakedown artists pressured the LAPD into a 'fence-mending' meeting when NO mending is needed."
And indeed, Los Angeles Muslims are playing the victimhood card to the hilt in this case, and the clear evidence of the video above is not deterring them. Nor does the LAPD seem to have anyone with the guts to stand up and say, "Stop this nonsense. Watch the video. The young man was clearly threatening police officers. They responded appropriately
But since not many concrete facts are available until exhaustive investigations inside and out of LAPD are completed, Pitcher mainly tried to mend fences with the Valley Muslim community, many members of which believe ethnic prejudice was a factor
in Arian's death.
