What Happened to The Muslim Men Who Were Shot in Minneapolis?
Submitted by: lalapancakes⚫ 5 months ago
This past July, a report came out of a shooting of two Muslim men in Minneapolis. Revisiting the story, the shooter is some piece of shit skinhead looking "lone wolf" named Anthony John Sawina. What’s more offensive is he is only potentially getting seven years in prison for trying to kill a group of people. I'm trying to imagine how much of a shit storm the media would whip up if this incident's player roles were reversed.
An excerpt from KSTP:
“The shooting was reported at 2:30 a.m. June 29 near the intersection of 14th Avenue Southeast and Sixth Avenue Southeast in Minneapolis, which is near the University of Minnesota.
Five Somali men told police they were playing basketball in the area and encountered a group of people leaving a nearby bar. One person in the group said, “What’s that dress you’re wearing?” referring to the traditional clothing one of the victims was wearing for the month of Ramadan, according to the criminal complaint.
The victims were about to leave when one of the men said, “F*** Muslims,” according to the criminal complaint. One of the victims asked the man why he would say that, and then two of the men approached the vehicle.
According to the criminal complaint, 26-year-old Anthony John Sawina of Lauderdale drew a handgun and began firing. Two of the victims were hit in their lower legs, police say.”
