Mohammed (Pedro) Whitaker was charged with 18 felony counts related to 9 incidents. Charges included shooting into a motor vehicle and hitting a victim. More charges may be added, prosecutors said.

A series of at least 12 shootings started in early March. The latest shooting linked to the pattern occurred April 6. Three victims were wounded in the spree.

His job:
“Whitaker is on administrative leave from his job at OptumRx in Overland Park, the division of UnitedHealth Group that fills prescriptions”

He is a black. Possibly a follower of Farrakhan.

They’ll run that killer, Nazi, “right-wing” nut story for a long, long time. After the first story, this one might not get more than a few mentions on page 30.

Mohammed Whitaker, obviously a case of Islamist terrorism, (which MSM will ignore) yet Sen. Dingy Harry has the nerve to call Cliven Bundy and his supporters domestic terrorists,

That is because Islamic terrorists don’t directly oppose the US government and conservatives do.

Mohammed (Pedro) Whitaker was charged with 18 felony counts...

I take it the FBI, Southern Poverty Law Center and the New York Times are NOT even mildly interested in this story...

Will it be reclassified to a 'neglected to pay parking tickets' charge?

This was “workplace violence” that happened to take place on the highway, with random targets.

Not terrorism or hate crime in any way. < /sarcasm >

OK. If he works in Overland Park and lives in Grandview, then he probably traverses the infamous GRANDVIEW TRIANGLE.

I can understand why he is shooting at other cars. I have heard many say they want mounted .50cal machine guns on the front of their cars to help get ‘through’ the ‘triangle’.

Grandview is an upper-middle class community.

Well Zimmerman made us aware of the newly discovered sub-class of American known as the "White Hispanic."

So I guess "Mohammed Pedro Whitaker" will reveal another as yet undiscovered demographic - the "Moslem Mexican Negro."

Umm, maybe at one time, but not in the 39 years we've lived in the Kansas City area. We were advised to stay out of Grandview then, and it is still good advice.

He’s only parenthetically Hispanic.

Not sure if that counts.

"We were advised to stay out of Grandview then, and it is still good advice."

That would put much of the metro area off limits for discerning folks then. I lived on each side of K.C. proper to be closer to work in the past, much less than 39 years ago. And yes, I'll admit it. We laughed at those who continued driving on flat tires. [And I'm white.]

Also see Grandview, MO from a website other than the city's official website. Scroll down the site for all kinds of information including housing start and crime statistics.

Not anymore. There has been an exodus from Grandview over the past 20 years.

his job at OptumRx in Overland Park, the division of UnitedHealth Group that fills prescriptions

Yet another reason not to have dealings with AARP.

The probable cause affidavit has him going "to work at 115th and Metcalf" (page 6). Google shows OptumRx located at 6800 W 115th St, which is right by Metcalf. The affidavit states he parked in a multilevel parking garage, and Google shows one of those a short way in from 115th and Metcalf. And there is a nearby street labeled Sprint Parkway which loops around a large campus of similar looking buildings. Turns out to be Sprint World HQ.

Just for reference for those of you outside of Kansas City. The Sprint campus is right next-door to the Jewish community center campus. This sicko bastard also had to drive by the JCC Every day going to and from work.
