On March 27, 2002, The New York Times featured a newsbrief, "Attack on Mosque." The article noted that "A man who said he hated Muslims drove a truck into a Florida mosque just 30 minutes before evening prayers, the police said. No one was injured on Monday in the Islamic Center of Tallahassee at Florida State University. The driver, Charles Franklin, 41, was arrested later at a campus bar. Investigators said Mr. Franklin told the police that he tried to join the military to kill Muslims but was turned down."
