Thoughts on Imam Luqman's death

Over one thousand American Muslims gathered in the city of Detroit on Saturday to mourn the prayers leader who was shot [18] times by the FBI in an apparent attempt to arrest him. 

This is an injustice.
The FBI was wrong and the Media was wrong in their attempt to smear Islam.

This tragic shooting raises deep concerns regarding the use of lethal force by law enforcement agents.
Since the investigation was "solely criminal" based upon "smuggling and fraud," we urge law enforcement and the media not to take undo advantage of this tragedy in order to demonize American Muslims generally, and those who are African American Muslims in particular. -MANA

The media grossly underestimated the Janazah crowd. It was over 2,000.

I spoke about this issue more indepth yesterday at a khutbah in Dearborn. http://dawudwalid.wordpress.com/2009/11/07/responsible/
