Leader and Members of Fundamentalist Group Indicted; Leader Killed by FBI

Federal prosecutors in Detroit charged Luqman Abdullah and 10 others "with conspiracy to commit several federal crimes, including theft from interstate shipments, mail fraud to obtain the proceeds of arson, illegal possession and sale of firearms, and tampering with motor vehicle identification numbers." According to DOJ, "Abdullah was the leader of part of a group which calls themselves Ummah ('the brotherhood'), a group of mostly African-American converts to Islam, which seeks to establish a separate Sharia-law governed state within the United States. The Ummah is ruled by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rapp Brown, who is serving a state sentence in USP Florence, CO, ADMAX, for the murder of two police officers in Georgia...Abdullah has espoused the use of violence against law enforcement, and has trained members of his group in use of firearms and martial arts in anticipation of some type of action against the government. Abdullah and other members of this group were known to carry firearms and other weapons." Moreover, "At one location, four suspects surrendered and were arrested without incident. Luqman Ameen Abdullah did not surrender and fired his weapon. An exchange of gun fire followed and Abdullah was killed. An FBI canine was also killed during the exchange."

    We need to investigate the shooting death of Luqman Ameen Abdullah. There are a lot of questions surrounding his death.


    Ten other individuals were arrested and taken into custody without incident. Why wasn't Luqman?

    Luqman Ameen Abdullah, a.k.a Christopher Thomas, decided to fire at federal opposed to surrender peacefully.
