No gun used to kill this student, just a rolling pin….(do I hear a call for confiscating rolling pins?)
Actually, readers, this conviction happened in October and I missed it until a friend from Tennessee alerted me that the excellent website, Creeping Sharia, had posted it yesterday, here.
We first told you about the murder in Buffalo (an impoverished city which immigrant advocates are actively trying to re-build by pouring in third worlders, go figure!) here back in April. In May we told you that the Christian and Jewish population was declining in Buffalo as the Muslim population was increasing.
Here is the gruesome report on the trial of Ali-Mohamed Mohamud in the UK Daily Mail:
Ali-Mohamed Mohamud was convicted Thursday of second-degree murder for beating to death his 10-year-old stepson.
Homicide detectives and prosecutors in Buffalo, New York, said the case was one of the worst they had ever seen.
After duct-taping a sock in the boy’s mouth and binding his hands with electrical cord, the stepfather savagely beat the boy so bad he separated the his head from the spinal cord, crushing the back of his head and exposing his brain, according to court testimony.
‘Justice has been done,’ prosecutor Thomas M. Finnerty said after the verdict, reached after three hours of jury deliberations.
Mohamud could face 25 years to life in prison when sentenced November 15, reports the The Buffalo News.
So, did fear of being labeled Islamophobic contribute to the boy’s death?
The death could have been avoided after it was revealed the boy called 911 twice in the past year to report abuse.
Abdifatah Mohamud, from Buffalo, New York, was found beaten to death in his family’s basement last week. He was bound, gagged and struck repeatedly with a rolling pin.
Though the Buffalo Police Department is investigating how officers handled the calls, they did confirm they reported the allegations to Erie County Child Protective Services – who are accused of not doing enough to help the boy or remove him from the home.
They are refusing to comment on the case.
