Some Crimes Are More Equal Than Others

If you read blogs or listen to talk radio, you’re probably quite aware of the growing outrage over the treatment of Tiller’s murder on Sunday and Pvt. Long’s murder on Monday. Or, if you depend on the main stream media, you may not even be aware of Pvt. Long’s death or who pulled the trigger.

The president and "his" media went into over drive condemning the killing of an abortion doctor, tying the perpetrator (before anyone knew who it was) to the entire pro-life movement. Little attention was paid to the pro-life leaders who also condemned the murder.

The very next day, a Muslim extremist fired shots near an Army Recruiting station in Little Rock, Arkansas killing Pvt. William Long, 23, and wounding Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula, 18. When taken into custody, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23, admitted shooting the two men "because of what they had done to Muslims in the past" although he later pleaded “not guilty” to capital murder. He is a young black, formerly known as Carlos Bledsoe, who converted to Islam while in prison. After his release, he traveled to Yemen to study jihad. An anonymous source revealed that information on his computer raised the possibility that he did not act alone, but the incident could possibly be part of a larger operation.

The mainstream media has almost buried the story. Only Fox News has given all of the details. President Obama left the country without issuing any statement about it or supporting the work of recruiting personnel despite the fact he is their Commander-in-Chief.

The government offered the use of Federal agents to protect abortion providers after the Sunday incident, but I’ve heard nothing about Federal agents protecting recruiting offices or even allowing the people inside to protect themselves with side arms.
