Phi Beta Cons

UNC’s Jihadi

In March, a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Mohammed Taheri-Azar (an Iranian), attempted to run over a group of students with a rented car. He’s now in jail awaiting trial and has been writing answers to questions posed by reporters from the school paper, The Daily Tar Heel. As you can read here, he feels perfectly justified and does not believe that he deserves any punishment.
I wonder where he got the idea that if you think you are part of an aggrieved group, you are entitled to do anything to anyone you perceive as part of the oppressor group.  Certainly, his UNC studies did not disabuse him of this dangerous groupthink mentality.
