Utah: After nearly six years trial to begin in case of Burmese refugee who allegedly raped and murdered 7-year-old

Wow!  I wondered what had happened to this case we reported back in 2008, and just tonight up pops the news that the trial will begin in January for Esar Met who we learned in 2012 is a Burmese Muslim (a Rohingya?).   The victim, Hser Ner Moo, was a Christian and both had been resettled in the same apartment complex in Salt Lake City.

Here is what a news report in 2008 said (I didn’t see it until 2012):

Rage flashed through the muddy lanes where Hser Ner Moo had once skipped rope and played hide-and-seek. In the camp, tension lingers between the Karen and Muslims, and some choose to live apart. Hser Ner Moo and Esar had lived in separate sections of Mae La.

America had made them neighbors.

Not America!—the resettlement contractors in Salt Lake City! and the US State Department! who have some naive notion that generations of “tensions” between Christians and Muslims can simply be erased by dropping people into America’s magical (mythical!) melting pot!

This is the news this evening from The Salt Lake Tribune (emphasis mine):

Prosecutors and defense attorneys still have much to do before a Burmese refugee accused of kidnapping and killing a young girl at the South Salt Lake apartment complex where they both lived in 2008 is brought to trial.

But Senior Judge Judith Atherton said Wednesday she doesn’t want to postpone the case any longer.

After nearly six years of delays, Esar Met’s three-week trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 6.

Met, 26, is charged in 3rd District Court with first-degree felony counts of aggravated murder and child kidnapping in connection with the March 2008 slaying of 7-year-old Hser Ner Moo.

On Wednesday, defense attorneys asked the judge to suppress evidence in the case they said was collected using illegal or unethical methods and petitioned the court to have prosecutors use diagrams instead of certain graphic photos that, the defense argued, are “too gruesome” for jurors.

Prosecutors called the photos relevant, saying they show the brutality with which the child was killed and the injuries she suffered.


Atherton will issue a decision next week on whether or not a jury will be allowed to view the photos, which depict the 7-year-old girl crumpled inside a bathroom stall, bloodied and naked from the waist down, with obviously broken bones and bruised and damaged genitals.


Hser Ner Moo disappeared on March 31, 2008, prompting hundreds of volunteers to search for her before police found her body in Met’s apartment the next night. Her family lived in the same complex, and the girl was acquainted with Met.

Read the whole article, there will be legal wrangling over whether proper interpreters interviewed the alleged killer.

Sweden trying to figure out how to integrate their Somalis, cite US success (no kidding!)

Before I post this latest wishful-thinking story, be sure to see Daniel Greenfield on the news about the Somali rapist and you might find one clue about why the Swedes are so clueless.  Judge: we can’t deport the rapist because he might harm a Somali woman if sent back to Somalia!  (Clue #1: Swedes are soft on crime!)

Report author Benny Carlsson visited Minneapolis in 2010

Now to today’s story (originally published in The Local a year ago). These crazy Swedes think if they had more Ethnic-oriented NGO’s (like our resettlement contractors and ACORN-like ethnic based groups) they could get the Somalis jobs and voila! the Somalis would be integrated into Swedish society.  They seem to not consider the possibility that in the world’s best Socialist cradle, maybe the Somalis don’t want to work (or to be integrated)!

Twelve paragraphs into the story published today at Voice of GOBIslam the truth comes out.  But, first here is the gist of the story:

Somali immigrants in Sweden have had a harder time finding employment compared to Somalis in the United States and Canada, a new report has found.

Roughly every other Somali immigrant in North America has a job, while only 20 percent of the Somali immigrants in Sweden have jobs, according to a report released on Monday by the government’s Commission on the Future (Framtidskommissionen).

The report, entitled “Somalis in the labour market – does Sweden have something to learn?” (Somalier på arbetsmarknaden – har Sverige något att lära?) and presented on Monday to Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag, was ordered by the government in order to provide proposals for improving the employment situation for Sweden’s rapidly-expanding Somali population.

The report finds that Somalis in the United States and Canada have had an easier time finding work in part because non-government groups with strong ties to the Somali community play a larger role in helping newly arrived immigrants look for work, find housing, and start companies.  [These supposed “non-government groups” are really quasi-government agencies as they are almost completely funded by the taxpayer, they just get to function outside of the normal checks and balances government agencies have to face—ed]

Clue #2:  Somalis are largely uneducated, so they are likely not to succeed at finding jobs!  And, the article mentions the language barrier as well.  For what job would one hire a Somali if communication was not possible?

According to the report, one of the reasons there are so many unemployed Somalis in Sweden is that roughly half have arrived in the last five years and 70 percent have low or unspecified levels of education.

But, here is the real answer (Clue #3, at paragraph 12):

Why work if you don’t have to!

Carlsson also cited Sweden’s social safety net which “lets people live at a decent level even if they don’t work, while the same can’t be said of the United States”.

The second part of that sentence won’t be true for long as the Obama Administration works all the angles to emulate Sweden and expand the social safety net in America with the help of those very same “non-government” groups the Swedes look to as a possible salvation for themselves!

Obama’s illegal alien uncle is spared deportation, can become US citizen

You all know the story about Onyango Obama aka Uncle Omar or Obama Okech Onyango, whatever his name is (lying seems to run in the family), the long-lost uncle of Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama (or whatever his real name is).  If not, see our archive here.

Yippee! A new American!

Here is presumably the final chapter in Uncle Omar’s nearly 50-year odyssey as an illegal alien in America.  The lesson of this story, hide out in America illegally as long as possible and you will never be deported.

From The Boston Globe:

A federal immigration judge ruled Tuesday that President Obama’s uncle can remain in the United States, sparing him deportation to his native Kenya in a case that riveted attention on the elderly man who had lived under the radar in this country for 50 years. For most of that time, he was here illegally.

Boston immigration Judge Leonard I. Shapiro said Onyango “Omar” Obama can now get a green card, and in five years, apply for US citizenship, unless the Department of Homeland Security appeals the case within 30 days.

“Congratulations,” Shapiro said after he announced his decision. “Welcome to America.”

The case stirred controversy because the president’s uncle was arrested in 2011 for drunken driving in Framingham and was found to have an outstanding deportation order from 1992. Many accused the government of giving him special treatment at the same time President Obama is deporting record numbers of illegal immigrants.

The President lies (again!)

Obama also invoked his nephew’s name during the hearing, which lasted more than an hour. Asked if he had relatives in the United States, he said he had two nieces; a sister, Zeituni Onyango, who appeared in court Tuesday; and his brother’s son, Barack Obama.

“I do have a nephew,” Obama said slowly. “He’s the president of the United States.”

The White House said last year that Obama had never met his famous nephew, but the uncle testified Tuesday that the president had stayed with him at his Cambridge apartment for three weeks when he came to attend Harvard Law School in the 1980s.

I hope we won’t have to wait too long after 2016 to learn the whole truth about this bunch!

BTW, I’ve read a lot of books about our dear leader’s history, but the best was Sally Jacobs’ ‘The Other Barack’ about the senior Obama, brother to Onyango and of course father (we think!) of the President.  Jacobs is a veteran reporter at The Boston Globe.

Jacobs had long ago discovered the presence of the missing uncle as I reported here in 2011.

Update!  Judy reported to me that even the WaPo noted this latest Presidential lie, here.
