It take a lot to bring members of the House Judiciary Committee to tears but the testimony they heard today might stir even the hardest hearts.
“I must be one of a few physicians, if not the only one, who read his own children’s murder autopsy reports and details,” Dr. Mohammad Abu-Salha said.
Somehow, he was able to calmly describe the February 2015 killings of his daughters and son-in-law in Chapel Hill, N.C.
The man who killed them in a dispute over a parking space, Craig Hicks, still hasn’t gone to trial.
Abu-Salha and his family have started Our Three Winners, whose mission is “to eliminate hate crime one bias at a time.”
The Judiciary Committee hearing was broadcast live on YouTube, which shut down its comment section because of hate speech.
