‘I’ve been failed by the system’ | Teen walks free after neighbor says he broke her nose, left her in bruises
ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis woman feels like the judicial system failed her, after she said her teenage neighbor attacked her and walked away free.
Alicia Clarke said exactly a week ago she went for a quick run outside her south city home. When she came back, she noticed her shoes had been moved to a different spot and her cell phone was gone.
From there, she used Find My iPhone to search for it. The location said it was on her property grid. She used her work phone to call it.
“I open my back door to call it and I hear it in my neighbor’s backyard behind me,” Clarke said.
Clarke said she hopped the fence to get it and jumped back over to her yard. Another neighbor yelled out to her and said, “Hey, I told him, ‘I know you did this and I’m calling the police!'”
Clarke said that’s when the 6-foot teen jumped the fence and tackled her.
After the initial assault, he came back with a weapon (a screw driver), continue readingto see what happened next.
Clarke thought the fight was over. But when she went to juvenile court a few days later, she learned his case was dismissed.
“The most hurtful thing of all of this, is the dropped charges. That was much more hurtful than the physical assault,” Clarke said.
A juvenile court official said a staff attorney dropped the case before even going to the judge. The courts weren’t able to comment specifically on this incident, since it involves a juvenile. Clarke said she was told her accused attacker was found incompetent to aid in his own defense because he has an IQ of 49.
Alicia has a broken nose, staples in her head and stitches to the puncture wound under her eye.
Clark’s sister who wants the story told far and wide posted this additional information on her facebook page.
Hassan is a 15 year old refugee from Somalia who lives with his family. He is 6’ and approx 175lbs, much larger than my sister. He has broken into Alicia’s car 3 different times and broken into another neighbors house. The police were involved every single time and reported that nothing could be done since he was a minor. Surely this time would be different, though.
But, Texas isn’t sending him back to Colorado immediately because they are investigating potential other crimes he may have committed in Texas.
This reminds me of something a friend said yesterday.
Going forward, any governor or county commission that tells the President—send us more refugees—will ‘own it’ when a refugee takes an American’s job, costs us for consuming social services Americans need, or commits a violent crime in their jurisdictions.
The consenting elected official will not be able to blame Washington, but it will be on them and I’ll be right here to point out that connection going forward.
Man suspected of killing woman at Sheridan hotel arrested in Houston
HOUSTON — A man suspected of killing a woman in the Denver suburb of Sheridan has been arrested in Houston.
According to law enforcement sources, Abbas Abdal Kathem Abed was found at a Houston homeless shelter. Sheridan police worked alongside Houston police and the U.S. Marshals Service to find Abed.
Abed’s minivan had been located in the Houston area a few weeks ago, but law enforcement sources say Abed was arrested Thursday shortly after they received a tip from the shelter.
Abed had been on the run since Dec. 1, 2019, when 31-year-old Chelsea Anne Snider was found dead at a hotel in the 2900 block of West Hampden Avenue.
Snider died from blunt force trauma and stabbing, law enforcement sources said Thursday.
Abed had been employed as an Uber driver. Following Snider’s death, Uber said Abed no longer has access to the app. Uber does not believe their ridesharing app had anything to do with the crime because the platform was turned off at the time of the incident.
Abed is an Iraqi refugee. Investigators believe he may have gone to Houston because of Iraqi friends he met there when he first came to the U.S. [Begs the question—what sort of people are his Iraqi friends?—ed]
A law enforcement source says Abed’s extradition to Colorado could be delayed because Houston police are investigating crimes he may have committed there, including attempted murder.
Every time there is a violent crime or attempted terrorist attack by a ‘VETTED’ refugee (vetting is a joke of course!), we should be told which of the nine federal contractors were responsible for placing that criminal in an unsuspecting community. There ought to be a law!
A 28-year-old “man” has been arrested in a violent kidnapping case, luckily the woman fought back and escaped.
Ann Coulter once said that the way news stories are written about crime cases involving migrants and refugees one needs a “secret decoder ring” to figure out what nationality the alleged attacker is and what might be his or her immigration status.
Reader Linda sent me the story from Spokane and this morning I had a few minutes to search news stories about the arrest of Atif Ado. Continue reading “Spokane, Washington: Secret decoder ring needed in kidnap case”→
It was only two days ago that I told you that “assimilation” is a dirty word in the lexicon of the Open Borders/Refugee industry. I also told youthat we have admitted over 40,000 ‘refugees’ from the DR Congo (so far) with a UN agreed upon goal of taking 50,000.
(DR Congolese refugees are the largest ethnic group coming in under the Trump Administration. Only 3.8% are Muslim, if you are wondering.)
Now both posts serve as background for this stunner from Manchester, NH about a refugee from DR Congo who beat a woman (no mention if it was his wife) and was given a free pass by the legal system because he had come from a violent culture.
After reading the story here and here, I realized why the refugee advocates and officials have mentioned in the past that women from the DR Congo will need lots of (costly) mental health treatment.
Not just women and children!
And, we were led to believe that we were getting mostly women and children. I just checked the demographic data atWrapsnet and was shocked to learn that men and women are pretty much equal in number and in fact in the 21-30 age group in most years, men arriving here out-numbered the women in that group!
Here is a bit from the story at ImmigrationReform.com(hat tip: Joanne):
Assimilation is one of the most critical aspects of any successful immigration system. It determines whether an aspiring migrant will be able to adapt to a nation’s values, laws, and culture. And no, this type of assimilation doesn’t mean that one must throw away all of the cultural heritage that makes a person who they are. Rather, it means that they must reconcile their heritage with the laws and values of the nation they wish to join.
A breaking story in New Hampshire highlights the importance of this concept. According to court records obtained by the New Hampshire Union Leader, a prosecutor dropped domestic violence charges against Augustin Bahati, a Congolese refugee, when she unilaterally decided “that he lacked the cultural competency to participate in the American justice system.” In essence, this means that the prosecutor determined Bahati was still so rooted in his old culture – where domestic violence is presumably acceptable – that he was incapable of being legally responsible for violating American domestic abuse laws.
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where Bahati is originally from, sexual abuse and domestic violence are commonplace. In fact, The DRC is often referred to as “the rape capital of the world.”Throughout the 20-year, ongoing civil war within the republic’s borders, the Brooking’s Institution estimates that as many as 48 rapes occur every hour, largely stemming from members of rival militias. In addition, there are very few laws on the books aimed at protecting women from spousal abuse.
This decision is highly troubling, especially since Bahati’s alleged crimes include “striking, pushing, grabbing, kicking and pulling out the hair” of a woman who was 27 weeks pregnant, according to the Union Leader. What the Manchester prosecutor seems to be saying, is that Bahati’s domestic abuse should be tolerated, because he is new to the United States and still acting according to the moral and legal standards of his native country.

Does your state ‘welcome’ refugees from the DR Congo?
Most states do. Only HAWAII, Delaware, West Virginia and Wyoming have escaped!
Since this big resettlement began in earnest in FY2013, we went back to that year (up to the present day) at Wrapsnet. 40,216 are living in your towns and cities. Only 9,784 to go to please the United Nations, but I have never seen one of these camp clean out projects end when they promised it would!
Here are the Top Ten states with the most DR Congolese refugees arriving since FY2013:
