Little Rock shooter calls killing justified...

Private Quinton Ezeagwula speaks publicly for the first time about being shot by Muhammad of Little Rock.

I read this yesterday, and it sickened me.

bdulhakim Muhammad of Little Rock said he confessed to police that he killed Pvt. William Long outside an Army-Navy recruiting center but told AP that murder exists only "without a justified reason."

In a collect call from jail, the 23-year-old also disputed his lawyer's claim that he had been "radicalized" in a Yemeni prison, and also said he didn't specifically plan the June 1st shootings but that they came about after being on his mind for awhile.

Muhammad said he wanted revenge for claims that American military personnel had desecrated copies of the Quran and killed or raped Muslims in Iraq (web | news) and Afghanistan.

He said the U.S. military would never treat Christians and their scriptures in the same manner.
