Nabra Hassanen

Nabra Hassanen

17-year-old Nabra Hassanen was abducted and killed last weekend in Sterling, Va. as she was walking to her mosque during Ramadan. Local police are charging the crime as a road rage incident. Local Muslims, though, are not convinced that Islamophobia was not at play. We discuss the community response to Nabra’s death, and explore the legal issues around prosecuting something as a hate crime.
