This past week two girls ages 13 and 15 hijacked a car belonging to a Uber Eats driver and in the process murdered the man. Washington D.C. mayor blamed the incident on the murder victim for not taking enough precautions against car theft.
The girls are both Black, and the Uber Eats driver was from Pakistan.
Would Muriel Bowser’s response had been different if two white boys murdered a Black man?
The two young girls are charged with felony murder.
The killing took place during broad daylight and after they crashed the car, the girls were in no hurry to leave the scene with one of the girls looking for her cell phone she had in the man’s car. The girls walked right by the man’s body as they searched for the phone.
Did these girls pick up this attitude from the summer of BLM riots?
And did Muriel Bowser finger the victim for basically the same reason?
A man was murdered in cold blood and instead of denouncing the horrific crime, Mayor Bowser shamed the victim.
This woman is diabolical and should resign in disgrace.
“Auto theft is a crime of opportunity. Follow these steps to reduce the risk of your vehicle becoming a target,” Bowser said Sunday morning.
People were outraged by Bowser’s victim blaming.
Update: Bowser deleted her tweet!
Auto theft is a crime of opportunity. Follow these steps to reduce the risk of your vehicle becoming a target.

You are a liar, a fraud and possibly a psychopath

Are we victim shaming now, Mayor? #mohammedanwar was doing his job and picking people up and/or delivering food so he could put food on the table. This is all you have to say? Advice to avoid being carjacked? Nothing to commemorate this man?

I’ll take Blaming The Victim for $100, Alex.
Also, carjacking and murder is not “auto theft.”
Every politician needs a social media minder to keep them from scoring own-goals like this.

Twenty years ago everyone would have been outraged by this crime but that is before half of the country “woke” up. Now, it is just seen as another day in the United States where we look for excuses when people have committed a heinous crime.
Our hearts go out to the family of the victim, Mohammad Anwar, 66, of Springfield, Virginia 66, of Springfield, Virginia. Rest in peace.
