….so his body can be taken ‘home’ to Iraq.
a week ago today in June was the final step in the lengthy investigation and murder trial that surely cost the taxpayers of California a bundle. Not only did Kassim Al-Himidi brutally murder his wife, but left a note at the murder scene that first led investigators to think that a hate-crime against Muslim immigrants had occurred.
And, this is what we are paying for in our “humanitarian” refugee resettlement program!
From the Los Angeles Times:
An Iraqi immigrant was sentenced Monday to 26 years to life in prison for the 2012 bludgeon slaying of his wife in their El Cajon home.
Kassim Al-Himidi, 50, left a note near the body to mislead investigators into thinking that the fatal beating of his wife, Shaima Alawadi, 32, was an anti-immigrant hate crime, prosecutors said.
Still loudly protesting his innocence, Al-Himidi told Judge William McGrath at the sentencing Monday that he would prefer to be executed so his body could be returned to his native Iraq.
About the photo: I wonder did the New York Times ever update (apologize!) that story depicting the people of El Cajon as racist and Islamophobic!
