The Chapel Hill Shooter Killed Over What?

I’m sure most of you are aware by now of the recent Chapel Hill shooting which took the lives of three Muslim students.

Most people had assumed that this was a hate crime instigated by “Islamaphobia”—this time, committed by a progressive atheist rather than the run-of-the-mill backwater angry white guy fueled by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh-induced rage.

Great! Now whenever I hear someone say they’d kill for a parking space, I have to fear whether or not they mean than literally!

I can accept this being yet another hate crime, even one committed by a media-declared “right-wing extremist”, but a neighborhood dispute over a freaking parking space? I mean, sweet Celestia freaking Luna…
