News Talk Online February 1, 2009: Muslim Killed By FBI Shot 21 Times

An autopsy report released today by the Wayne County Michigan medical examiner shows that a Muslim suspect shot by the FBI in October was hit 21 times.

The killing of Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah was the focus of today's News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network.

Perhaps more potentially damaging to the FBI than the number of times Abdullah was shot is the report's conclusion that one of the bullets entered his back.

The shooting occurred during an FBI sting operation in a Dearborn, Michigan warehouse. Abdullah was the leader of a Sunni group that allegedly sought to create a separate nation within the United States.

Dawud Walid, who heads the Michigan office of the Council on American Islamic Relations says his organization has filed Freedom of Information Act requests to learn more about the incident. He says the "stonewalling" as he terms it has caused many in the community - not just Muslims - to question whether there's a cover-up underway.

The shooting took place on October 28 but the autopsy report - a matter of public record - wasn't released until today adding to the feeling among many, he says, that the truth surrounding Abdullah's death will not ever come out. Walid wants the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division to conduct an independent investigation of the shooting.
