Autopsy: Michigan imam suffered 21 gunshot wounds
Houston Chronicle ^ | 02/01/10 | Ed White

Posted on 02/01/2010 9:50:12 AM PST by freespirited

DEARBORN, Mich. — An autopsy report shows that a Muslim prayer leader suffered 21 gunshot wounds during an FBI raid at a warehouse in a Detroit suburb where agents were attempting to arrest him.

The report released Monday by the Wayne County medical examiner's office indicates that Luqman Ameen Abdullah was shot once in the back.

Earlier Monday, Dearborn Police Chief Ron Haddad (huh-DAD') said it would take several more weeks for his department to complete its investigation into the Oct. 28 shooting.

Abdullah was described as a leader of a national radical Sunni group that wants to create an Islamic state within the U.S. His family has denied allegations that he was anti-government.

The official report will state he died of massive lead poisoning!

I’d call that a “21-gun salute.”

It sounds like the FBI needed to play it careful.

Good for them.

I’d like to know the total number of shots fired by police against how many the Iman received.

There may be room for improvement on their skills.

Abdullah was described as a leader of a national radical Sunni group that wants to create an Islamic state within the U.S.

Islamic imperialism is never denounced by the Left.

Neither is the expansion of global Communism.

An autopsy report shows that a Muslim prayer leader suffered 21 gunshot wounds

Why was an autopsy even required? Did they think he may have died from the H1N1 virus instead?

“An autopsy report shows that a Muslim prayer leader”

The koranimal was a terrorist!

What type of person would refer to that koranimal as a prayer leader?

So, why 21 gunshot wounds? Could it be they ran out of ammo?

A professional, certified, sold-out, hypocritical, subversive, traitorous, licensed, progressive, crypto-totalitarian, illuminated journalist, that's who.

Wayne county medical examiner’s office sounds like it has a political agenda.

Let’s say boyfriend WAS shot 21 times. So dude has minimum of 21 holes in him and maximum of 42 holes and the true number is probably somewheres in between. To say that any one of these holes is a entrance or exit (we’re talking .40 S&W and not high powered rifle) I think is a bit of a stretch. Unless you are pushing a certain agenda.

It COULD be the reporter reading the autopsy summary and not realizing that the initial description included both entrance and exit wounds . . .

. . . I agree there's an agenda here, but might be the reporter.

Entirely possible. I’ve had some personal experience in this area, and I’ve seen both sorts of things take place. The “shoot in the back” theme is always associated with an agenda - essentially not to different from saying you were “rear-ended” in traffic. It places the blame in an entirely different domain.

Yup. I’d be careful what I said around Dearborn though. Lots more where this guy came from. The reporter may be worried about a fatwah.
