This crime is particularly disturbing since the 10-year-old victim had called the police on at least two occasions asking to be protected from his violent stepfather, Somali refugee Ali Mohamad Mohamud.
You have to wonder whether police were too politically correct to intervene in a Somali family matter. When diversity is in play, authorities are sometimes afraid to act properly because they might be accused of racism and insensitivity toward tribal behavior.
On April 17, the stepfather tied up 10-year-old Abdifatah Mohamud, stuffed a sock in his mouth and struck him 70 times with a rolling pin.
The dead boy was described by teachers as a bright kid and a star in the fifth grade. He was certainly smart enough to phone 911 twice to complain of abuse to police, but he got no help. Just hours before the beating death, a neighbor recalled the boy running down the street, trying to escape his stepfather.
Police are investigating the death of a 10-year-old New York boy who had called 911 to report abuse several times over the past two years before his stepfather allegedly beat him to death last week.
On the night of April 17, Ali Mohamad Mohamud tied up his stepson Abdifatah Mohamud, stuffed a sock in his mouth, covered it with duct tape and then beat the boy to death, Buffalo, N.Y., police told ABC News affiliate WKBW.
An autopsy showed that the fifth grader died after being hit more than 70 times with a rolling pin.
Mohamud was arrested and is now facing second-degree murder charges, police told ABCNews.com. He is being held in jail while he waits for a grand jury date to be set.
Since then, it has been revealed that Ali had made at least two phone calls to 911 to report that his Somali stepfather was hurting him, according to WKBW. Continue reading this article
Unsurprisingly, NPR’s coverage focuses on the hurt feelings and inconvenience of Muslims. There is not a peep of detail about the man who was shot dead. But we hear about how the Allah worshippers are followed around in stores — oh, the cruelty! Public safety likewise is overlooked for NPR’s obsession with cultural sensitivity to diverse immigrants.
Also unmentioned is the simple solution to the growth of this mode of criminal disguise — prohibiting masks in public spaces, as is the law in some places. (See states’ codes here.) The appearance of masks in the public square is the result of ultra-diverse immigration which includes Muslims who don’t want to assimilate.
Americans don’t want unidentifiable persons wandering around the streets breaking whatever law they want. Civic openness is a basic principle of Western culture. Islam, not so much.
The surveillance tape shows what looks like a Muslim woman, her face and body hidden by her traditional clothing, robbing a Philadelphia bank. But the robber in the abaya and khimar is actually a man. He’s part of a recent crime spree involving perpetrators in Muslim garb.
The worst of the incidents happened in Upper Darby when, Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says, someone who appeared to be a Muslim woman went into a barbershop.
“The holdup man who was … dressed in Muslim female garb, was covered from head to toe. The only thing that was showing was his eyes,” Chitwood says. “He shot and killed the barber in the shop.”
Chitwood says police believe it was a love triangle case — the defendant knew the victim, and an arrest was made. But he says without additional evidence, it would have been tough to identify the perpetrator.
“It just makes me sad that they would, you know, portray our religion in this manner,” local resident Kezia Ridgeway, a Muslim, says.
Ridgeway isn’t covered as much as some women — she usually just drapes a scarf around her hair, sometimes with a long dress, other times pants and a shirt. She and her husband have talked about how the crimes might make people more suspicious of Muslim women.
“You can’t see the face, so you don’t know who’s coming into your store,” Ridgeway says. “It’s really just going to make it hard for Muslim women whether you cover your face or … you cover your head, it’s just going to be something wherein people when they see someone who looks like me, or they see another Muslim woman, they’re going to think negative thoughts.” Continue reading this article
Some countries in the international community refuse to accept their citizens after they have committed crimes in the US and Washington tries to deport them. That list includes but isn’t limited to Cuba, China, India, Jamaica, Pakistan, Somalia, Iran, Trinidad and Tobago, and Bangladesh.
Immigration enforcement law expert Kris Kobach made a few remarks outside the court to the crowd assembled.
Interestingly, Solicitor General Donald Verelli voiced concern over foreign relations if SB 1070 were to stand, but no similar regard was reported from him for the danger to public safety if alien criminals continue to pour in.
Supreme Court justices took a dim view of the Obama administration’s claim that it can stop Arizona from enforcing immigration laws, telling government lawyers during oral argument Wednesday that the state appears to want to push federal officials, not conflict with them.
The court was hearing arguments on Arizona’s immigration crackdown law, which requires police to check the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally, and would also write new state penalties for illegal immigrants who try to apply for jobs.
The Obama administration has sued, arguing that those provisions conflict with the federal government’s role in setting immigration policy, but justices on both sides of the aisle struggled to understand that argument.
“It seems to me the federal government just doesn’t want to know who’s here illegally,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said at one point. Continue reading this article
After four years, the murder of high school student Jamiel Shaw (shown below) by an illegal alien gangster is finally coming to trial.
There is no better example of the government’s permissive treatment of illegal alien criminals than this crime. The accused killer, Pedro Espinoza, had been held in the LA jail on a gun charge and was a known gangster and illegal, yet was released to Los Angeles streets instead of being deported. Espinoza is charged with murdering Shaw on the day following his release. Had Espinoza been properly deported as the law requires, then he would not have been in this country to kill.
LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Jury selection began on Tuesday morning in the trial of Pedro Espinoza, who is accused in the shooting death of Los Angeles High School football player Jamiel Shaw.
About 80 jurors are expected Tuesday and Wednesday, and 24 have already been excused. Once the trial begins, it is expected to last up to four weeks.
Shaw’s family was present in the court room, and they say they hope the case will reignite the immigration debate as it did when Shaw was first killed.
Shaw, 19, was shot once in the head while on the sidewalk outside his home four years ago. Espinoza, a known gang member and illegal immigrant, was also 19 when he allegedly gunned down Shaw.
The crime sparked outrage from the community. Shaw was a star running back at Los Angeles High School who had lead his team to a league title. He was also attracting scholarship attention from schools like Stanford and Rutgers at the time of his death.
Espinoza had just been released from the L.A. County Jail on a gun charge the day before Shaw was killed. Shaw’s family says if Espinoza had been deported because of his illegal status, Shaw would still be alive.
The family tried but failed to get a law passed that would allow police to arrest gang members if they are in the country illegally. However the LAPD has an established policy against stopping people based on their immigration status. But the family will attempt to put the measure back up for a vote.
“With Jamiel’s Law, it just specifies illegal alien gang members, they won’t even support that,” Jamiel Shaw Sr., the teen’s father. “The illegal immigration thing is so messed up now…There’s no reason not to go after gang members in the country [who are] illegally committing crime.”
Jamiel Shaw Sr. plans to take the stand in the trial if called upon. He was at his son’s side moments after he was shot. The teen’s mother has served in Iraq and is on her way home from Texas.
Espinoza could face the death penalty if he is convicted.
C-SPAN’s morning call-in program Washington Journal had Dan Stein (Federation for American Immigration Reform) and Ali Noorani (National Immigration Forum) to debate the merits of the Arizona immigration enforcement law Tuesday, since the Supreme Court is about to hear the case challenging the legislation’s constitutionality.
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments Wednesday on the controversial immigration law first passed in Arizona two years ago, and a majority of voters nationwide still agree with one of the law’s chief provisions.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 59% believe police should automatically check the immigration status of individuals they pull over for a traffic violation. One-in-three (32%) opposes such a rule.
Independents favor the law by a 40 percentage-point margin (67-27 percent). That’s good news for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who has said he thinks Arizona’s law would be a good model for the rest of the country.
The Arizona law took effect in July 2010. It makes illegal immigration a state crime and allows local law enforcement to question the legal status of anyone stopped on suspicion of a crime and detain anyone who cannot prove his or her immigration status.
The Justice Department filed suit challenging it, and the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments next Wednesday on whether many of the law’s key provisions are constitutional.
Voters who live in the West (72 percent) and the Midwest (69 percent) are more likely than those living in other regions (61 percent) to approve of the Arizona law.
The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 910 randomly-chosen registered voters nationwide and is conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from April 9-11. For the total sample, it has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.
In a London courtroom, several Muslim men were assigned various prison terms of up to 11 years for kidnapping and raping two teenaged girls as a part of the males’ Eid festivities.
Muslim immigration practically guarantees diminished safety for women and girls. As feminist Hege Storhaug observed when asked about the effects of Muslim immigration:
“There is no doubt that the freedom, the level of freedom I had as a young woman, young women in Norway will not have, and don’t have actually today and they will not have it in the future, as far as I can see. So the freedom for women in Europe is going backwards.”
“Girls in school, they are mocked by Muslim boys and they dye their hair black, yes. Blondes are dying their hair black, that is correct. And some of them also move to other parts of Oslo to be let alone.”
A group of Muslim men who abducted and raped two teenage girls as part of their Eid celebrations laughed in court yesterday as they were jailed for a total of 38 years.
The girls, aged 15 and 16, were lured miles from their home to a dingy hostel.
In a horrifying weekend-long ordeal, they were plied with alcohol and repeatedly raped by two men, Shamrez Rashid and Amar Hussain, before being offered to a number of others who also ‘used them for sex’.
The 16-year old was forced to have sex six times with four different men.
The younger victim was raped by one man and then sexually assaulted by another.
One defendant, Rashid, 20, was said to have claimed the girls had enjoyed the sex, which he said had taken place as they celebrated the Muslim festival of Eid.
‘It was Eid,’ he said. ‘We treated them as our guests. OK, so they gave us [sex] but we were buying them food and drink.
‘They could have anything they wanted. They enjoyed it.’
His accomplice Amar Hussain, 22, claimed the girls were ‘slags’.
But Judge Melbourne Inman QC said the girls had still been children at the time of the offences.
He said it was quite obvious they had been frightened of the men, but this had had ‘no effect at all’ on their attackers’ behaviour.
‘They were still children and still living with their families,’ Judge Inman said. ‘In a civilised society, such people should be helped. You all abused them.
‘They were extremely vulnerable and you took advantage of that.’
The five defendants laughed and smirked as the horrifying details of their offences were described in court yesterday.
Rashid – who had already been found guilty of two rapes, an attempted rape, child abduction and an attempted sexual assault – grinned, laughed and made gun gestures in the dock. Continue reading this article
As many as 100,000 women in Britain have undergone female genital mutilations with medics in the UK offering to carry out the illegal procedure on girls as young as 10, it has been reported.
Investigators from The Sunday Times said they secretly filmed a doctor, dentist and alternative medicine practitioner who were allegedly willing to perform circumcisions or arrange for the operation to be carried out. The doctor and dentist deny any wrongdoing.
The practice, which involves the surgical removal of external genitalia and in some cases the stitching of the vaginal opening, is illegal in Britain and carries up to a 14 year prison sentence.
It is also against the law to arrange FGM.
Known as “cutting”, the procedure is traditionally carried out for cultural reasons and is widespread across Africa.
It is thought to be needed as proof of a girl’s “purity” for when she marries, but victims are rarely given anaesthetic and frequently suffer long-term damage and pain. Continue reading this article
Demography is merciless, as we well know in Mexifornia. France is facing a presidential election, and Muslim immigrant voters may tip the prize to the socialist candidate, a diversity-friendly leftist.
France has had a terrible immigration experience, even considered in a European context, that it’s amazing the multiculti racket still has any appeal at all. Muslim “youth” engaged in a major civil insurrection in 2005 that lasted for weeks in dozens of cities and caused enormous destruction of property.
PARIS — France’s Muslim community is mobilizing voters to reject President Nicolas Sarkozy in Sunday’s election to punish the conservative leader for his anti-immigrant and anti-Islam rhetoric.
“[French] Muslims can’t stand it anymore. They are fed up with these debates about national identity, halal meat, the veil or fundamentalism all over the place,” said Francoise Lorcerie, a sociologist with the Institute of Studies on the Arab and Muslim World near Marseille.
“The terms [Islam, immigration and fundamentalism] are being used interchangeably, without care, with people being targeted, denigrated and used for [votes].”
The debates and rhetoric aren’t new and have been at the heart of French political campaigns for the past decade.
Muslims – especially those living in the “banlieues,” France’s poor immigrant suburbs – sometimes have been courted by candidates with promises of jobs and better living conditions, but they mostly have been stigmatized as threats to the French identity, analysts say.
The rhetoric escalated last month after Mohammed Merah, a French-born Muslim who claimed to be inspired by al Qaeda, killed seven people in a shooting spree.
Mr. Sarkozy, of the conservative Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) party, called for tightening immigration because there are “too many foreigners” in France.
Marine Le Pen, the presidential candidate of the far-right National Front party, talked about “green fascism” (a reference to the color of Islam) and wondered “how many Mohammed Merahs are arriving on boats and planes each day, filling France with immigrants.”
In the banlieues The speeches infuriated French Muslims and reignited the debate over origins and identity. As Europe’s largest Islamic community, French Muslims account for as much as 10 percent of the country’s 65 million people. Continue reading this article
In the White House, the re-election brain trust is gearing up to promote Obama as the great friend of hispanics, even though his promise to enact a mass amnesty in the first year of his Presidency never happened. In fact, he was busy with other things that he thought more important, in particular jamming through a government healthcare system that the American people didn’t want.
President Obama’s re-election campaign has released four new Spanish-language ads, each ending with the phrase: “Esta eleccion si importa,” which in English means, “This election does matter.”
In 2008, Barack Obama captured two-thirds of the Hispanic vote, winning in crucial swing states with large Hispanic populations like Colorado, Nevada and Florida.
The president’s re-election campaign is attempting to replicate that success for 2012, targeting those same states with this week’s launch of its first set of Spanish-language television and radio ads.
In four separate ads, Latino campaign organizers recount personal stories as reasons for supporting the president, focusing on education.
In one ad, Obama volunteer Lynette Acosta explains the importance of a college degree to her and her family: “Without the help of loans, I would not have been able to study,” Acosta says in the ad. “That’s why everything the president has done to increase access to funding is so important. … My mother says, ‘The best gift you could give me is a diploma that I can hang on the living room wall.’ ” Continue reading this article
