A man who was convicted of murdering four white men in 2017 in a race-related killing spree in Fresno was sentenced on June 5, 2020 to a life sentence in prison without parole, according to prosecutors.
Kori Ali Muhammad’s sentence came three years after he said he was getting tired with racism towards blacks and shot several people, which resulted in the deaths of four white males.
A Fresno County jury convicted him of first-degree murder, second-degree, attempted murder, and other crimes in April.
Muhammad previously withdrew a not guilty plea, and prosecutors announced that they wouldn’t pursue the death penalty.
In a confession that was recorded to investigators that was played during his trial, Muhammad revealed that he shot Motel 6 security guard Carl Williams III and attempted to kill another guard on April 13 due to him feeling disrespected when he visited a friend.
According to security camera footage, Muhammad approached Williams from behind and shot him.
“It starts taking its toll on you, and you get fed up with the racism,” Muhammad declared. “You get tired of letting things slide.”
As he was being pursued by law enforcement after the shooting, Muhammad found out that he was wanted for Williams’ death. In the recording, Muhammad declared that if he was “going down for murder” the best thing was to “kill as many white men” as possible.
On April 18, 2017, Muhammad went downtown Fresno shooting at white men, according to his account of events. He surrendered to law enforcement after his shooting spree. At one point of this encounter, he fired nearly 20 shots in less than a minute, authorities reported.
Zachary Randalls was another victim who was shot in a Pacific Gas & Electric truck.
“When I walked up to the truck, I saw a Mexican driver and a white guy,” Muhammad stated “I didn’t want to target the driver because he was Mexican so I shot the white dude.”
Muhammad was also convicted of killing Mark Gassett and David Jackson and attempting to shoot three other men.
KTLA broke down the specific convictions that Muhammad received:
Muhammad was convicted of first-degree murder for Jackson’s slaying; second-degree murder for Williams, Randalls and Gassett; four counts of attempted murder; one count of shooting at an occupied vehicle; and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Gun owners in red states should be thankful that they live in jurisdictions where they can exercise their right to self-defense and not have to worry about criminals roaming with reckless abandon and preying on the innocent without usually having to face the consequences.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
