What an odd thing to say. Asked by a reporter, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said that getting crime under control was the No. 1 priority. As an example, she brought up the case of a 33-year-old doctor who was struck and killed by his own car after it was stolen from him. They’re still looking for the perpetrator, but Bowser, in an aside, noted that the carjacker probably didn’t intend to kill anyone, but did. He was just trying to steal his car. Yeah, that sounds tough on crime.

The New York Post reports:
The brazen auto theft occurred after Dr. Rakesh Patel, 33, exited his car, which was still running, to deliver a package to his girlfriend on Vernon Street NW at about 8 p.m., NBC Washington reported, citing police.
The suspect slipped into the empty Mercedes E350 – drawing the attention of Patel who raced back on foot in an attempt to foil the crime, the report said.
But the crook hit the gas and ran over Patel as he sped away. Patel was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

“Probably didn’t intend to kill anybody.”
Well that makes it certainly different, doesn’t it?

She talks but never really says anything substantive. Also, I find it disrespectful to the family for her to say “he probably didn’t intend to kill someone”. What is her point? Because that doesn’t matter to those who loved him. 😒

I don’t know. When you run someone over with a two ton vehicle that usually is the desired result.

He was just trying to feed his family, right?

I can’t believe @MayorBowser is still taking the side of a murderer. “Probably didn’t intend to kill anybody.” Well, he did and these people continue to kill until pathetic left wing lunatics like you and @charlesallen are voted out of office.

this clown has to stick in some justification for the killer – "probably didn't intend to kill anybody" – and we should believe she's serious about crime

"Probably didn't intend to kill anybody."
You're a disgrace to humanity, Muriel. Resign now, you utter, worthless simpleton.

Why is she already giving the benefit of the doubt to and making excuses for a FELONY MURDERER?? How can she speak on their intention? How disgusting! 🤢

This proves voter fraud.
Literally, NO ONE could be so stupid to vote for this woman!

Why would that thought even enter her head, let alone exit her mouth? Maybe let the police catch the guy and complete their investigation before letting the guy off of a murder charge.
