Here is a stunning example of Islamic supremacism. The family of Abdul Arian filed a, get this, 120 million dollar lawsuit against the LAPD before the funeral of their son, after:
1. He was in a 120 mile per hour wild police chase.
2. He told the 911 dispatcher that he was armed and would use the weapon.
3. When stopped, he ran, then turned.
4. It's dark. Is that a pistol in his hand?
5. He gets into a shooting stance. (Does anyone really think the police will spend much time wondering if that thing in his hand, which they cannot see clearly, is a pistol?)
6. Cops open fire.
The idea that the family would have the unmitigated gall to file a lawsuit when the facts are so crystal clear illustrates just how exploited the "anti-Muslim backlash" fiction and Muslim victimhood myth is.
Granada Hills resident Farzana Khan said, so outraged by the incident that she flew back from a visit to New York to attend the funeral. "He was not a criminal. The police were scared of a 19-year-old? No, it was because he was a Muslim. They'd ran his license plate, knew his name was Abdul. That's why they did that."
The Los Angeles Police Department had no comments on such accusations pending the results of an exhaustive investigation into the incident. On Sunday, LAPD officials met with leaders of the local Muslim community to discuss the shooting and the department's investigation procedures.
Omar Mansoury, a Canadian cousin of Arian's, also flew down for the service with a large contingent of the extended Afghan family.
"They messed with the wrong family," a seething Mansoury said.
The comments at (of all places) the Puff Ho are overwhelmingly pro-cops.
Last Wednesday, late night news viewers watched as a wild car chase on the 101 freeway ended in what seemed like an armed confrontation between the driver, Arian, and LAPD officers. In the video below, Arian can be seen raising his arms with his hands pressed together and spinning around to face officers as he runs away.
Footage from NBC LA shows the suspect being shot to death by police. WARNING: graphic.Police fired more than 90 rounds in Arian's direction, killing him. Officers later discovered that Arian was unarmed throughout the entire confrontation, despite his frequent claims on a 911 call during the chase that he had a gun and was prepared to use it against the police. The Associated Press has some of the call:"I have a gun," was one of the statements police quoted the man as saying.
"'I've been arrested before for possession of destructive devices, I'm not afraid of cops," he said.
"If they pull their guns, I'm gonna have to pull my gun out on them," he was also quoted as saying.
The 911 recording has not been made public, but Lt. Andy Neiman of the LAPD told ABC Los Angeles that Arian's family was welcome to listen to the call whenever they wanted. So far, the family has not taken up the police on their offer.
A funeral for Arian will take place Tuesday afternoon at a North Hollywood mortuary.
The family of a man who was fatally shot by police after a freeway chase filed a $120 million lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles Monday.
In a press release, attorneys for the grieving family of 19-year-old Abdul Arian announced the wrongful death suit and said that the damages figure was "equivalent to one million dollars per bullet."
The Los Angeles Police Department disputes the number, reports the Los Angeles Times, as officers maintain that only about 90 rounds were fired at the teen.
An attorney for the Arian family spoke with NBC LA on camera about the lawsuit. "Certainly, they should be cautious if they believe that a alleged suspect has a weapon," he said. "But it still doesn't give the police the ability and the legal justification to gun the victim down."
