Hate crime - Catholic mistaken for muslim and attacked

The news story was hard to swallow. The catholic let the hater live. Some people are just better than others. I don't know if I would have restrained myself. This guy is truly better than me.

So here's the news in short:

  • Cameron Mohammed, 24, ( photo) was shot 20 times with a pellet gun in Walmart parking lot, in Tampa Florida.
  • The shooter mistook Cameron for a muslim because of his appearance - He looks Indian (or asian - to use the american description).
  • The shooter was Daniel Quinnell (25 years old)
  • Quinnell reportedly asked Mohammed if he was Muslim or from the Middle East before shooting at close range
  • Mohammed was born in Florida, his parents are from Trinidad, HE IS CATHOLIC.
  • Mohammed had a licensed gun on him at the time of the attack but chose not to fire because 'I'm not going to decide this man's fate'
  • Quinnell probably still does not know how lucky he is to be alive.
