from upi:

"Al-Amin, then named Donald Jones, was convicted in Norfolk in 1989 of murder and use of a firearm, and sentenced to 52 years. He is scheduled for release in 2016.

"He converted to Islam in prison and changed his name, which he says the prison system refused to call him by. He won that right in the suit as well."

So murder now entitles an inmate in Virginia to call himself a member of "the religion of peace"?

The inmate was murderer, right.

The government who put him in prison has murdered and is still murdering innocent people, right.

The inmate has repented and returned to faith, right.

The government hasn't and is still sponsoring terrorism the whole wide world.

The inmate is better than the government.
