Attempted Murder Charges in UNC Hit-and-Run

Eyewitness News and The Associated Pres
(03/04/06 -- CHAPEL HILL) - The driver of an SUV that plowed into a group of pedestrians at UNC-Chapel Hill on Friday told police it was retribution for the treatment of Muslims around the world, sources tell Eyewitness News and ABC News.

It happened around noon Friday in front of Lenoir Hall on the campus, in a common area known as the Pit. Paramedics took six people - - five students and a visiting scholar - - were treated for minor injuries and released from UNC Hospitals. Three refused treatment at the scene.


Chopper 11 shows the accident scene near The Pit at UNC-CH.
Police say they arrested the suspect, Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, 22, of Chapel Hill, shortly after the incident. He reportedly called police shortly after the incident and surrendered a few miles from campus.
Police said they would charge Taheri-azar with nine counts of attempted murder.



Link to terrorism?
Sources say Taheri-azar told police he was seeking retribution for the treatment of Muslims around the world, according to ABC News justice correspondent Pierre Thomas. Taheri-azar apparently told police he tried to rent the biggest SUV he could find to use in the attack.
Taheri-azar told police Friday, "If you want to know why I did it, go check my bed at my apartment."

"He said it almost in a baiting type of way," Carrboro police spokesman Capt. Joel Booker said.

By Friday afternoon, a police SWAT team had surrounded a Carrboro apartment complex where Taheri-azar lived. Taking no chances, heavily armed authorities blew open the door to his University Commons apartment. After several hours of searching the apartment, Carrboro police sounded the all-clear, allowing residents back inside late Friday evening.

"We may find other things down the road, but right now, we were not in there looking for trace-type evidence," said Booker. "We're in there looking for something that could cause all of us harm. Gladly, we have not found that to this point."

Who is Mohammed Taheri-azar?
Taheri-azar was born in Iran, but grew up in Indian Trail, near Charlotte. Eyewitness News obtained video of Taheri-azar giving a presentation to a UNC-CH English class last spring. He graduated in December 2005 with majors in philosophy and psychology.

Police are looking at phone calls he made recently, as well as e-mail, to see if anyone else was involved.

In addition to a political motivation, authorities likely will be looking at a psychological analysis. A law enforcement source tells Eyewitness News that Taheri-azar had been plotting the attack for some time and was prepared to die. Sources think he acted alone.

"My officials are using the term 'lone wolf,'" said ABC's Pierre Thomas. "They have no evidence of a wider plot.

Sources tell Eyewitness News and ABC News that Taheri-azar was intent on killing people Friday.

"One official said the officials and students on campus were lucky today," Thomas said. "Because if he had done what he wanted to do, you'd probably have some dead people on your campus."

Last month, Muslim students at UNC protested the publication in The Daily Tar Heel of an original cartoon depicting the prophet Muhammad. Islam is interpreted to forbid any illustrations of Muhammad for fear they could lead to idolatry. The recent publication of a series of cartoons of Muhammad in European newspapers sparked violent protests in the Middle East and elsewhere.

The Muslim Students Association, which was among the leading critics of the cartoon, said Teheri-azar had never been a member of the group and denounced him on its Web site.

"Regardless of what his intentions prove to be, we wholeheartedly deplore this action, and trust that our fellow classmates will be able to dissociate the actions of this one disturbed individual from the beliefs of the Muslim community as a whole," the statement said. "Peace be upon you all."

If there are any Muslims feeling jiggy in Montana, that'll happen ONCE. Possibly after the retribution, all Muslims will directly leave the country.

What I don't understand is HOW they can say that this is a "lone Wolf" incident. It seems to me that if this guy, who obviously is intelligetnnt and studied, all of a sudden decied to "take action" then we are sitting on a HUGE problem just waiting to happen.

Pt him in a wooden building with an oak floor, strip him, nail his penis to the floor with long, large headed nails, set the building on fire, and hand him a knife, then leave.

How about a Lousiana Boat Ride. Put several cinder blocks in a small wooden boat. Nail his dick to the boat seat, then shoot a hole in the bottom of the boat with a shotgun. While it is sinking slowly hand him a knife.

But how many times will these type incidents be dismiised as "isolated"? Does not the jihad call for the OPFOR to engage the infidel at every opportunity? Are the martyrs that turn themselves into pink mist on the city bus in Isreal and other places just "one crazy bastard" too?

How is this guys action different if he intentionally rammed people with his car? He's driving a 3000 pound weapon. If you are refereing to some 80 or 90 year old person who runs over people because they should have hung up the keys to the car 20 years ago, they are no where near the same thing.

What is of grave concern is the fact you never hear moderate / American Muslims condemn suchs acts of violence. Almost makes one wonder if it isn't a silent support of some sort.

Things will get uglier, there seems to be no doubt about that.

Loads have been since 9/11. There are articles all over the place about terroristic acts in our country, it's just that they aren't called "terrorism", so people don't get scared and think the .gov can't protect them. Ex: Muslims who sought asylum here from Africa tried to blow up a mall in Ohio, the Muslims who were just arrested in Ohio in the car sales terrorism racket, Muslims in New York City who commit diffewrent acts, etc.

The only thing we can do is buy bigger and bigger SUVs to keep us safe. Then go to semi trucks when they continue. When it gets to bad we can just stay in boats out on the lakes. If they get boats we will have to find something else.............
