    In Michigan, explosive details have emerged from the long-awaited release of the autopsy report for a Detroit-area Muslim imam slain by the FBI in October. The imam, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, headed a Sunni Muslim group called the Ummah. He was shot dead during an FBI raid shortly after being indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit federal crimes. Local Muslim leaders have questioned if authorities are trying to cover up facts surrounding his death. The autopsy report was finally released Monday after a lengthy delay. It shows Abdullah died from twenty-one gunshot wounds and was found with his wrists handcuffed behind his back. House Judiciary Chair John Conyers is expected to join a coalition of civil rights and Muslim groups today to call for a Justice Department probe.

    DEARBORN, Mich. - An autopsy report shows that a Muslim prayer leader suffered 20 gunshot wounds during an FBI raid at a warehouse in a Detroit suburb where agents were attempting to arrest him.

    The report released Monday by the Wayne County medical examiner's office indicates that Luqman Ameen Abdullah was shot once in the back. An initial review of the report mistakenly cited 21 wounds.

    Just a small mistake. I wonder which report is true.

    If your handcuffed, you only NEED one shot. I just hate it when people exaggerate.

    I know I shouldn't have laughed, but this one struck me as funny. Sorry. I know. I am going to hell.

    Clearly if more than 21 shots were fired those who missed should be held accountable.

    Ok, say he WAS shot 20 times... what's the point? How many times should he have been shot? Why was he shot, or, better yet, why was he shot 20 times?

    I think a little more info is called for here before we start pissing our pants.
