Here is a story that will make your head spin. In the first version I read from two days ago it sure sounded like some crazy white guy who hated Somalis intentionally killed a Somali teen with his SUV. CAIR was immediately on the scene.
Then after looking for an update, we have this story from late last night at the Kansas City Star that tells a different story. Turns out the man arrested for the intentional killing of the teen is another Somali, supposedly a Christian one (very rare) who believed that the Muslim Somalis were out to kill him.
Isn’t diversity beautiful!
Kansas City, by the way, is (no surprise) a preferred resettlement community. Check out who is bringing Somalis to Kansas City by going to this handy list. One of the contractors operating in KC is a Jewish organization.
Before suffering gruesome and fatal injuries Thursday, Abdisamad Sheikh-Hussein helped lead the evening Muslim prayers at his mosque near downtown.
“He asked for mercy for humankind and asked for humans to follow the righteous path,” remembered Ali Abdi, the assistant director of the Somali Center of Kansas City and its mosque.
But Abdisamad, 15, received no mercy minutes later as he stepped off the curb at 1340 Admiral Boulevard and headed toward a car. A Chevrolet Blazer speeding eastbound sideswiped the car and struck Abdisamad, nearly severing his legs.
The Staley High School sophomore died later at a hospital.
The driver of the SUV, Ahmed H. Aden, a 34-year-old Kansas City truck driver, told police after his arrest that he had been searching for men who’d threatened him nine days earlier. And he said he planned to kill those men if he found them, according to court records.
Aden told police that he intentionally struck Abdisamad, but he had mistaken the teen for one of the men who had threatened him.
Jackson County prosecutors charged Aden with first-degree murder, armed criminal action, leaving the scene of an accident and unlawful use of a weapon.
Aden, whom sources described as a Somali Christian, now is the target of both a state murder investigation and a federal hate-crimes probe, authorities said.
Members of the Somali community said that Aden long was known to have made frequent and violent threats against Muslims and the mosque, occasionally even threatening the mass slaughter of worshipers.
CAIR representative: anti-Muslim graffiti on Aden’s car
Moussa Elbayoumy, chairman of the Kansas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said a member of the mosque has a photo of Aden’s SUV, taken about two months ago, showing anti-Muslim graffiti, reading, “Quran is a virus disease (worse) than Ebola.”
Read on, some of those interviewed at the mosque think it had nothing to do with a Christian v. Muslim issue but that Aden was just crazy.
One more long prison term that US taxpayers will have to fund.
