He says there will be a police press conference at noon today about the “Kingston Muslim car drowning” (there’s a separate “Kingston Muslim pool drowning”, in case you’re having trouble keeping up with all those dead Muslim women suddenly cluttering up our mulit-culti paradise…)

“She was really afraid,” Masoomi told the Whig-Standard, through her daughter Elaha Masoomi. “There were death threats.”
