Muslim Teen Charged With Hate Crime Murder For Stabbing Gay Black Man At Brooklyn Gas Station
A teenager has been charged with murder as a hate crime in connection with the fatal stabbing of New York City dancer O’Shae Sibley, police said.
The unidentified suspect lives in and attends high school in Brooklyn, NYPD Assistant Chief Joseph Kenny said at a press briefing on Saturday announcing the suspect’s apprehension.
Police previously said that a 17-year-old male was wanted in connection with the fatal stabbing of Sibley, a 28-year-old Black gay man, who was stabbed in his torso on July 29 around 11 p.m. at a gas station in Brooklyn.
The suspect turned himself in accompanied by an attorney, police said. He is charged with murder as a hate crime and criminal possession of a weapon.
Oddly, ABC and most other media outlets aren’t mentioning the fact that the killer specifically screamed, “We are Muslim and don’t like gays!” moments before he stabbed Sibley to death, according to a friend who witnessed the murder. If the killer screamed something about being a Christian, surely that would be reported, and rightly so.
