CNN Describes Horrific Murder Of UberEats Driver As An ‘Accident’

CNN described the horrific Washington, DC murder of an UberEats driver by two teen girls as an “accident” after graphic footage of the incident went viral Saturday.

Mohammad Anwar, who is 66 years old and from Springfield, Va., died after two girls aged 13 and 15 dragged him while he gripped the car they were stealing. The minors eventually flipped the vehicle, flinging Anwar to the sidewalk on Tuesday. The minors are from the DC area, according to police.

The D.C. Metropolitan Police Department declared in a press release Wednesday the two girls have been charged with felony murder and armed carjacking. Anwar was assaulted with a Taser amid the carjacking, the police say: “The Detectives’ investigation on the scene revealed that the suspects assaulted the victim with a taser while carjacking the victim which resulted in a motor vehicle accident.”

A GoFundMe page set up for Anwar’s family described the deceased as a “hard-working Pakistani immigrant who came to the United States to create a better life for him and his family.” Below is how CNN described the carjacking that led to Anwar’s death.

The post garnered mockery online. Some pointed out the same outlet remained fixated on race when it fit the leftist narrative of white supremacy. The two teenage girls charged by police are black. Anwar was Pakistani, according to his family.

The capital district has seen a sharp increase in carjackings, many by minors, over the past three months.

On Sunday, D.C. Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser published a video offering residents tips to avoid falling victim to vehicular theft.

“Auto theft is a crime of opportunity,” Bowser wrote.
