So this guy’s name is Quran Jones. Based on that, I’m guessing he’s . . . Hindu or Jewish . . . or maybe Wiccan? Sadly, Quran Jones beat to death an autistic college student who was, according to accounts, a sweet guy obsessed with history and dreams of becoming a history professor. Sadly, those dreams will never materialize.
Quran Jones Murdered Autistic Student Scott Gregory Hawkins
Two months after he moved from his Santa Clara home to a brand new Sacramento State University dormitory, Scott Gregory Hawkins told his parents he was adjusting well and liked the roommates in his five-person suite.
But in a shocking outburst of violence, Hawkins was bludgeoned to death inside his room Wednesday afternoon. University police say the suspect is one of those roommates, who himself was shot and wounded after officers say he lunged at them with a knife. . . .
Police arrested Quran Jones, 19, who witnesses reported seeing wielding a baseball bat just before university police arrived, according to Sgt. Joe Green. Police first fired pepper balls at Jones, then they fired bullets. Jones, who is in stable and fair condition at UC-Davis Medical Center, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer. Police would not disclose specifics on his injuries but said he is expected to survive. . . .
Scott Hawkins . . . was “a person who really cared about other people and was a very generous, giving and caring person,” his father said. His son was obsessed with history and wanted to eventually become a history teacher or professor.
Scott Hawkins had Asperger syndrome, a form of autism, “that made him very obsessive about his favorite things,” his father said. He especially enjoyed studying ancient European and Middle Eastern history and was hoping he could graduate with a minor in one of those areas, his father said.
“He could go on and on about the history of Rome or the reasons that the Greek empire did this or that,” Gerald Hawkins said. . . .
Police say, Jones raised the knife above his head and charged the officers. Jones was shot and wounded by the officers, Green said. . . .
The two officers who fired guns at Jones, and who had not been identified as of Thursday, were placed on paid administrative leave while the police investigate the shooting.
Figures. Of course, we always waste tax money investigating law enforcement who did their job. Because it’s completely unjustified to shoot a murderer who’s charging at you with a knife, right?
