Partially blinded hate crime victim sues to stop execution of the man who shot him in the head and murdered 3 others after his half-sister was killed on 9/11Rais Bhuiyan is suing Gov. Rick Perry to stop the state from executing the man who shot him in the head nearly 10 years ago.
“I never hated him,” Bhuiyan said at a press conference this morning. “ I was never angry at him.”
Bhuiyan, a naturalized American citizen who moved to the United States from Bangladesh and now lives in Dallas, filed a lawsuit on Wednesday claiming that Texas would violate his rights as a victim by proceding with the scheduled execution of Mark Stroman on July 20. Bhuiyan, the sole survivor of the September 2001 Dallas convenience store shooting spree, believes that Stroman is reformed and wants Perry to halt the execution.
On Sept. 21, 2001 Stroman, a methamphetamine addict suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, walked into a Dallas convenience store and went on a rampage after his half-sister was killed in the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers.
