Florida: Muslim teen says Islam led him to stab multiple people

“Police said Johnson told detectives he committed the crime because of his religious beliefs. Shannon said Johnson recently converted to Islam and had been watching violent videos.”

If Corey Johnson had said anything other than Islam had led him to stab these people, there would be an immediate investigation into the belief system that incited this violence. No one would hesitate. But since he said it was Islam, we can only expect renewed calls from authorities to avoid “islamophobia,” avowals that Islam is a religion of peace, and news stories about how the local Muslims are fearing a backlash.

“Police: Religious beliefs caused teen to stab multiple people,” by Ted White, WPBF, March 13, 2018 (thanks to Paige):
