San Fran Man Injures 15 with his vehicle

Good article by Uncommon insight. Some news articles don't even mention the guys name.

A California man went on a rampage yesterday in his vehicle, intentionally running over pedestrians. Take note of a peculiar media bias as you read about this case. Every single story about the incident will mention that Omeed Aziz Popal's vehicle was an SUV. Most will even mention the color of the vehicle, black, and the model, a Honda Pilot. I'm sure in journalism school the MSM learned to think of these as essential details.

Wouldn't it be pertinent to mention that Omeed Aziz Popal was "male, Muslim, aged 17 to 35" and recently traveled to Afganistan. Wouldn't these details be at least as important as the make, model and color of the weapon the perpretrator used? Americans have a hard to fathoming the fact that radical Islam preaches hate toward us. They hate us. We don't hate them. They wish us harm. We don't often think about them at all.
