Reading that you might suppose Terrence Lavaron Thomas hates Muslims. Reading on, we learn:

A Detroit man stabbed two people at a suburban bus stop after asking his victims whether or not they were Muslim, according to police. Federal authorities are now looking at the case as a potential hate crime, police said on Tuesday.

Seven paragarphs down we learn that Thomas is a Muslim.

The Daily Mail’s headline is different:

Lavaron Thomas Detroit

 

It’s version begins:

A Detroit man walked up to a bus stop Saturday asking if people were Muslims and stabbed two that responded no, police say.

The facts are the same. But how you presnt them can sugegst biased reporting.
The Detroit Free Press adds:

“We are getting indications through my officers that the suspect was somewhat incoherent afterward, and so there’s a question about his stability,” [Police Officer] Hawkins said.
