This kid is whacked and unfortunately he will paint everyone who is opposed to Islam building a mosque at the site of its 9/11 conquest as just like him. I wish liberals supported religions other than Islam. All these sappy liberal wenches need a female circumsision to see what Islam is about.

The Muslims are hypocrites.
They have MORE freedom here, than in the mid-east.
They come here & use loop-holes & their religion to justify sharia "law".
We ALL had better be ready to fight. "Rome fell";
the U.S. could, if people don't drop the apathy & p.c.*orse*hit, & realize they are just setting themselves up more & more over here. They WILL be able to affect the voting each year that passes.
Wake UP........

The muslims, don't forget, are the ones who justify
throwing acid in the faces of little girls trying to go to school & get an education.
They are the ones who's 'religion' says it is permissible to kill anybody not of their 'faith'.
They are the ones who stone women who are accused of adultery; a conveinient excuse their husbands use sometimes to be rid of them without a divorce.
The muslims are the ones who would strap bombs to children, donkeys, mentally handicapped women & send them to check points & detonate the explosives remotely, like cowards.
There is no fooling people whos eyes are open;
we KNOW what this 'religion' is REALLY about.
That being said, what this 'kid' did probably points to some type of mental illness.

This stinks of a setup. Photos of the supposed victim in the emergency room? The victim is a huge brute!

This is a phony so-called hate crime manufactured to elicit sympathy for the muslim cause and the mosque at Ground Zero.

Word is coming out that the alleged attacker has worked for some time with Muslims to further understanding of Islam at home here and abroad in Afghanistan! He's a bought and paid for patsy for the Islamic/Muslim cause!

Maybe this guy is just crazy.
But americans are getting tired of other countries coming in and taking over. This site they want to build on is just a in your face america. We will do what we want and it doesn't matter what you Americans want. People are starting to take back their country and speaking out. If this site isn't in our face, why not move it somewhere else. Why not have compassion for those who died 911.
Sounds to me this guy this just snapped over something and took out on the first person he seen. Any taxi cab drivers are in danger of this all time.

What is so important that this is national news?A guy got stabbed should be local news,not headlines across the country.
What if it's just a robbery and some editor decided to label it as "anti Muslim backlash"?

In my opinion, a murder should just be treated as a murder all the way across the board. If it is an altercation between two white men, two black men, a white and a black man, a Muslim and Non-Muslim, should not have any special bearing on the actual law of what the penalty should be for murder.
If a member of my family was killed, I don't think I would be too concerned with the race or the motivation behind said killing. I would just want the murderer brought to justice.

The reason that I disagree with the hate crime idea is that it does not seem to apply evenly. For instance, take that recent case of the murder of white supremacist, Barett. Which will not be charged as a hate crime, even though it was obvious that the crime was motivated out of hate.

Granted, I would be no sympathizer or friend to people like white supremacist Barett. But if there is going to be a specific type of charge for hate crime, then I feel that it should apply all the way across the board also. And I do mean that literally, if someone murders someone over the fact that he dislikes the way that he looks (even if they are the same race) then that should be charged as a hate crime as well. Hate crime laws would not be fair if they only apply to certain instances. Otherwise, murder should just be murder across the board.

I also don't think the motivations of a killing should be used for purposed of politics. If they use this incident to garner support for any cause, whether pro-Islam or Anti-Islam, I would think that would be unethical.
