Another day, another disturbing murder in a Democrat-run city. Despite the heavy National Guard presence on the lookout for right-wing extremists in the nation’s capitol, the everyday kind of violence that plagues America’s inner cities continues without a hint of concern in the mainstream media.
In Washington D.C., two teenage girls, all of 13 and 15 years old, were charged with murder for for attempting a carjacking in broad daylight that left an Uber driver dead. WATCH (graphic violence warning):

It should also be noted that the National Guard troops left the Uber driver on the sidewalk to die. It is unclear if the driver might have been saved with immediate medical intervention.
The murder charges against the teenage girls were reported by NBC4. The victim was 66-year-old Mohammad Anwar, of Springfield, Virginia.
“A man died and two girls, ages 13 and 15, face felony murder charges after police say the girls carjacked the man near Nationals Park on Tuesday, used a stun gun against him and caused the car to flip,” NBC reported.
The arrests were reported by the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.

“He was a hardworking immigrant who came to the U.S. in 2014 to build a better life for himself and his family. The loss for his family is immeasurable,” Anwar’s family said in a statement.
Uber also offered the family condolences for the tragic death.
“We are devastated by this tragic news and our hearts go out to Mohammad’s family during this difficult time. We’re grateful the suspects have been arrested and thank the Metropolitan Police Department for their diligence with this investigation,” Uber said in a release.
“Anwar is survived by a wife and two adult children in the U.S. and an adult son and four grandchildren in Pakistan, according to his family,” NBC reported.
There is no word if it will be investigated as a “hate crime.”
