Kennewick, WA: Can’t ID man who attempted to kill police officer with sword?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 16, 2017

….First, the authorities and the media should call the local refugee resettlement contractor and see if he is one of theirs.  In this case the contractor World Relief Tri-Cities is the primary contractor for Richland/Kennewick/Pasco.  See one story here from 2013.

***Update*** Yup! Somali refugee, but the resettlement agency didn’t return phone calls. See here.

They will know if Hussain Hassan is one of the refugees they were paid to resettle in Kennewick or nearby.

Here is the story at World Net Daily by Leo Hohmann.  The police killed Hassan, but amazing no national news on this story from Sunday?

A 46-year-old man identified as Hussein Hassan attacked a police officer in Kennewick, Washington, over the weekend with a large sword, striking at the officer’s head before he was shot and killed.

The resettlement contractor, World Relief, for the Tri-Cities is located in Richland. See national list and find out if you have a refugee contractor nearby. Should be the first stop for police and media when trying to determine immigration status of someone involved in a crime that sounds like it is related to Islam. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/acb67-publicaffiliatedirectory1-6-17.pdf

A spokesman for the police said two officers responded to a 9-1-1 call at 6:38 p.m. Sunday about a man walking down Olympia Street near 10th Avenue armed with a sword.

The two officers arrived on the scene at the same time in separate cars at about 6:40 p.m. One officer got out of his car to confront Hassan and police say the man started swinging the sword, striking the officer at least once in the head with the blade.

Both officers opened fire on the suspect and put him down.

The officer was treated and released from an area hospital after receiving 17 staples to close the head wound.

Almost 24 hours later, on Monday evening, police identified the dead man as Hassan, but gave only scant details – his age and current city of residence.

Kennewick, a small city of about 73,000 population, has been a hotbed of refugee resettlement over the years. The U.S. State Department, in cooperation with the United Nations, has distributed more than 475 refugees into Kennewick since 9/11 from Muslim-majority nations, according to the State Department’s online database. That includes 206 from Iraq, 99 from Somalia, 69 from Sudan, 31 from Afghanistan and nine just in the past 10 months from Syria.

Other than Seattle, where there are thousands of Somali refugees, we have said little over the years about ‘welcoming’ Washington state, but go here for what we do have in the archives.

      Due to the politically incorrect moniker of “Towel Head”, we should be more sensitive when we speak of Muslims. The cloth over their heads is actually made of small parts of bed sheets. That being said, it’s better to call them “Little Sheet Heads”. I hope we all can band together with this new name for them!
