ISIS Terrorist Added to Ohio State Campus List of Those Wrongly Killed by Police
At least 8 people were injured in an attack at Ohio State University.
An Ohio State spokesman says the suspect rammed a group of students then exited the vehicle and stabbed several individuals with a butcher knife.
Some students were stabbed, others injured after being hit by the vehicle.
An OSU student took this photo of the suspect after he was gunned down by campus police.
THE SUSPECT’S NAME: Abdul Artan.
He was a Somali refugee.
ISIS later took responsibility for the attack.
Students at Ohio State University added Abdul’s name to a list of “individuals of color” who have been wrongly killed by police.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
Students at Ohio State University have added attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s name to a list of “individuals of color” who have been wrongly killed by law enforcement officers over the past two months.
Students gathered in front of the Thompson library last week to commemorate the death of the assailant in the recent Ohio State University attack which led to nearly a dozen people being sent to the hospital. Artan, a junior at the university attacked community members with his car and knife before he was ultimately shot and killed by a university police officer.
According to The Lantern, the student newspaper of Ohio State University, Pranav Jani, a professor in the school’s English department, claimed that she understood why Artan was moved to commit an act of violence.
Among the names on the list was Artan. Those in attendance said they did not condone his actions, but some said they have compassion for the attacker, who expressed feelings of anxiety related to how he was perceived as a Muslim.
“You can understand where an act of violence comes from without condoning that act of violence,” said Pranav Jani, an associate professor of English.
The student organizers of the event explained that several of the members of their list had committed acts of violence before being killed by law enforcement
