Autopsy Confirms It:
Luqman Abdullah Was Murdered

Feb 15, 2010

The Chief Medical Examiner of Wayne County, Michigan finally released the autopsy on Imam Luqman Abdullah–more than three months after he was killed.

Luqman Abdullah was a community activist who was widely known for helping the poorest people in his area for years.

The autopsy report confirms what those protesting Imam Luqman’s killing already knew: it was murder, plain and simple, carried out execution-style by the FBI.

And it was a setup. The FBI used a criminal informant, a man Luqman had helped in the past, to lure him to a deserted warehouse in Dearborn. Why Dearborn? Obviously, if they had murdered him on the streets of Detroit where he was known, they could well have faced an angry community.

The FBI claims that Luqman shot first. So why did they not test his hands for gunshot residue?

Before killing him, the FBI set an attack dog on Imam Luqman. This was confirmed by puncture wounds to his face and upper body shown in the autopsy.

The autopsy proves the shooting was massive overkill. Imam Luqman was shot 21 times, including once in the back and once in the groin. All of his internal organs were destroyed. Quite simply, they wanted him dead.

The facts of the story are blatant–and those facts accuse the FBI of murdering another activist in the black community.
