HERE’S MORE ON THAT NASHVILLE CABBIE STORY:
A Nashville cabbie made anti-Semitic statements and praised Adolph Hitlerâ€™s campaign against Jews during a religious argument that culminated when he ran over one of the passengers as he left the taxi, witnesses said during a hearing today.
The cab driver, Ibrahim Ahmed, said Hitler was â€œtrying to rid the world of Jews,â€ the alleged victim, Jeremie Imbus, told the court.
â€œI just remember â€¦(being)â€¦ I guess the word is â€˜shocked,â€™â€ Imbus said of the Feb. 18 incident.
Well, that’s one word. And Tom Elia notes a surprising lacuna.
