DC Mayor

DC mayor slammed for ‘deafening’ silence on Uber Eats driver’s death during carjacking

“DC’s @MayorBowser, who encouraged months of ‘Defund the Police’ riots in DC last year, responds to the murder of UberEats driver Mohammad Anwar by 13- and 15-year-old female carjackers with a shockingly tone-deaf message of how to prevent auto thefts in her city,” the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway tweeted.

Hemingway was responding to a tweet from Bowser sent on Sunday, which included a video on how to prevent auto thefts.

“Auto theft is a crime of opportunity. Follow these steps to reduce the risk of your vehicle becoming a target. Remember the motto, #ProtectYourAuto,” Bowser wrote.

Bowser’s tweet came after the murder of Mohammad Anwar last Tuesday, when two teenage girls, ages 13 and 15, allegedly attempted to steal his car and tasered him. The car eventually rolled over, and Anwar died.

“He was a hardworking immigrant who came to the U.S. in 2014 to build a better life for himself and his family,” Anwar’s family said in a statement. “The loss for his family is immeasurable.”

The teenage girls were charged with felony murder and armed carjacking, but Bowser has remained quiet about the incident.

Others echoed Hemingway in their response tweets, while also noting that Bowser’s tweet was likely scheduled, but her silence on Anwar’s death is “deafening.”
