MEDIA BLACKOUT: 98 years for racially motivated shooting spree in Greenville, NC


In 2013, a black Muslim began shooting random white people at a Walmart. His sole motive to was to kill random white people. Four white people were shot during his attack. Some of the victims were seriously injured. One had to to be put in an induced coma for 15 days. All four miraculously survived.

Since the very beginning there has been a total media blackout on this story. It has only received a few tiny blips in the local media.

If the races had been reversed, this would have been the biggest news story in America. National media would have been camped out in front of the courthouse for the trial. Instead it was one of the most censored “hush crimes.”

The perp was 23 and had already been convicted of attempted murder at age 14! Yet he was allowed to go free and try to kill more people.

A man accused of shooting four people in a Greenville commercial area in 2013 was sentenced to 97 years and eight months in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty in Pitt County Superior Court.

Lakim Anthony Faust, 24, pleaded guilty to four counts of attempted first-degree murder, three counts assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and seven counts of assault on a law enforcement officer.

Faust appeared in the main courtroom at the Pitt County Courthouse. Pitt County District Attorney Kimberly Robb  prosecued the case and public defender Ann Kirby represented Faust. Judge Jack Jenkins presided.

Law enforcement officers, victims and their families also attended the proceedings. Evidence presented for Jenkins to weigh for sentencing included video from security cameras in the area and from an officer who was wearing a camera.

Faust, who has a histroy of mental illness, was experiencing a psychotic episode during the shooting, according to testimony, but understood the consequences of his actions and could not plead insanity.

Police said at the time of the crime that he used a shotgun to shoot one man at 11:44 a.m. on June 21, 2013, in the parking lot of Kellum Law Firm on Greenville Boulevard. Then he walked across the street to the Walmart parking lot and allegedly shot three more men at close range before police shot him.

Faust was indicted in Sept. 2013 by a Pitt County grand jury on 14 charges, including four counts attempted first-degree murder and three counts assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

The indictments said Faust shot the four men because of their “race, color, religion, nationality, or country of origin.”

Faust is black; the four victims are white. A search warrant shows police seized several books on the Muslim faith from Faust’s residence as evidence after the shootings.

Court documents also revealed Faust previously had been an adjudicated delinquent for an offense that would have been a felony if it was committed by an adult.

Maryland records show he was charged with attempted first-degree murder when he was 14, and the case was handled in juvenile court.
