Berkeley students: Chattanooga shooting justified, racist to call shooter Muslim
In a video posted to YouTube on Wednesday, students at the University of California in Berkeley told filmmaker Ami Horowitz that the shooting at the Chattanooga, Tennessee, recruiting station was “legitimate.” Moreover, students said that referring to the shooter as a Muslim is racist.
“The attack in Chattanooga, was that a little more legitimate because they were soldiers?” Horowitz asked. Students he asked said yes and explained why.
“Some people would say that a military installation or institution, even including recruiting centers, that is a legitimate military target,” one student said. The man went on to say that “some people” would consider the 9/11 terror attacks to also be legitimate. Some 3,000 people died in the attacks that took down the twin towers of the World Trade Center.
“If you get caught with your pants down it’s unfortunate,” another student said. His female companion agreed, adding, “Yep – I feel like they put themselves in that situation – they know what they’re getting themselves into.”
“If a man is in a U.S. military army uniform….police officer, if they can drone me that’s a legitimate target, he’s asking for it,” said a third student. “There are legitimate targets everywhere,” a Muslim student remarked.
