Part Three: A Culturally Clever, Bacha Bazi Predator

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 3, 2015

Editor:  This series of guest columns by ‘Pungentpeppers’ about refugees who are also child predators has been wildly popular.  Part II went through the roof yesterday via facebook.  Below is the next installment as we pick up the story of perhaps Australia’s most infamous pedophile.  (You may want to read Part I  first about America’s own Bacha Bazi predator.)

Part Three: A Culturally Clever, Bacha Bazi Predator

In Part Two — It’s May 2014. Child predator Omid Roshan sits behind bars, but Ali Jaffari is roaming free. Melbourne residents report sightings of the Afghan sex offender. He seems to be everywhere! The public is on high alert.

Afghan men do not think of women as sex objects, how could they when the women are covered. Woe to the young boys. Photo: http://awwproject.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/boy-with-burqas.jpg

“Jaffari should not be on the streets,” child protection activists agree. But amid calls for his deportation, one Melbourne-area activist is concerned that, if Australia deports him, Jaffari will harm children in his home country. She says, “We can’t let child abuse travel.” (See the Herald Sun, here).

But child abuse has already traveled — from Afghanistan to Australia.

Bacha Bazi, or sexual abuse of boys, introduced in Part One of this series, is pervasive and culturally accepted in Afghanistan. The country has more pedophiles per capita than any other place on earth. It has been going on there for centuries, and is so ingrained that Afghan men do not think of women as sex objects. After all, “How can you fall in love with a woman if you can’t see her face?!”

The abusive practice is most common among Pashtuns – perhaps as many as 50% of Pashtun men take boys for lovers – but it is also prevalent among other Afghan ethnic populations, including the groups to which our two featured sex offenders belong. Omid Roshan is likely a Tajik; while Ali Jaffari is a Hazara.

Jaffari is not the naive and innocent bumpkin he pretends to be…

The widespread acceptance of Bacha Bazi in his country may have given Ali Jaffari the idea that he could exploit his cultural background to evade punishment for misbehaving in Australia. Thus, after his arrest for molesting the boys in the pool, two months later he feigns innocence and disingenuously tells police in Geelong, as he is stopped after trying to kidnap the little girl: “for us is not an issue”.

Jaffari is not the naive and innocent bumpkin he pretends to be, albeit he grew up poor and uneducated in a rural part of Afghanistan’s Ghazni province. After his father was shot dead in 2003 (Jaffari was in his mid-20’s), his family fled to Pakistan. Although the odds were stacked against him, Jaffari found opportunity and exploited it to personal advantage. Motivated to travel to Indonesia, he collected the immense sum demanded by smugglers to pay for passage by boat to Australia – no small feat. During 15 months of detention, Jaffari learned the stratagems required to win permanent asylum and benefits from the Australians – and was successful.

Given his past wins at the Australian game, it’s no surprise that during the long intervals between arrests and court appearances, the ever resourceful Ali Jaffari devises his “cultural” strategy. And the Australian magistrates, oh so understanding and wanting to be culturally aware, lap up Jaffari’s concocted tale of innocence, deprivation and loneliness — and so they fail to lock up the conniving predator who had the audacity to frighten a woman and her children by following them through a park at night, making noises and touching himself.

Will the courts finally stop Jaffari? Or will the government step in?

And why won’t the Afghans stop the hideous practices that bring shame to their nation? Does the reason have something to do with Islam?

More to come, in Part Four!

Iranian refugee in Sydney: Had Problem With the “Revealing Garments” of Australian Women

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 25, 2015

Editor:  Moving on from Africa (here and here) this morning, here is another excellent news analysis from ‘Pungentpeppers:’

 

 

A distressingly large number of sexual assault cases have been coming up in my internet news searches. The perpetrators are mostly Muslim Middle Eastern men. Some are refugees or asylum seekers. Some are well educated. However, all appear incapable of adapting to our Western society and mores. These men, in committing their crimes, may be acting on impulses rooted within their own religion and culture and upbringing – and doing irreparable harm to our citizens. Here is one such case.

In the Islamic Republic of Iran women must be covered by law. Even in the middle of summer, women wear the jet black veil called the chador in order to “protect” themselves from attack by lustful males. Uncovered Western women are portrayed as whores. Such was the society where Amir Mohebbifar, age 27, was raised. His name in Persian has a nice and pleasant meaning: “Prince of the Lover’s Light”. However, his behavior once he reached Sydney, Australia, was horrid and despicable.

Mohebbifar left Iran purportedly out of concern for himself and his girlfriend. Although he was university educated and came from a middle class family, the girl’s parents did not approve of their relationship, and he was afraid they would harm her or him. He left the girlfriend behind and joined the flood of other migrants who were traveling to Australia on smuggling boats. He arrived to Australia’s Christmas Island in March of 2013 and received a bridging visa. [At that time – not having had enough experience with Middle Eastern asylum seekers – Australia was still handing out “bridging visas”, or temporary permission to stay in the country, to migrants who arrived by boat. The practice has since been stopped.]

In Australia, Mohebbifar was increasingly out of his element. Frustrated and bored, he felt excluded, depressed and socially isolated since he did not know, and could not know, how to make friends in Australian society. He also had issues with the way Australian women dressed.

Last January (it was summer in Australia), Mohebbifar, having finished most of a bottle of whiskey, saw a 19-year-old woman headed home late at night on a pathway leading to Sydney’s Anzac Bridge. He approached her in his drunken state and asked, “Hi, are you walking home?” The young woman refused to make eye contact and walked fast to try and remove herself from the situation. She thought she had lost him, when she heard footsteps as he ran up to her and grabbed her. He then attacked her and dragged her off the path and into the bushes, where he sexually assaulted her while she was kicking and screaming and fighting and biting him. His attack lasted some 20 minutes when he suddenly stopped and started walking away. The girl called triple-zero (the equivalent to our 911) and he ran. Police arrived and, using CCTV footage, located Mohebbifar hiding under a car and sweating profusely.

Last July, Mohebbifar pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated sexual assault. The charges of sexual intercourse without consent and indecent assault were withdrawn. Sentencing was last week.

Mohebbifar told the court he had found it difficult to “adjust” to Australian women’s “revealing garments” but had been taught to “respect people”. In sentencing him, Judge Donna Woodburne said Mohebbifar had preyed on a vulnerable young woman who was simply trying to get home. “To be accosted, seized and dragged off the street by a complete stranger must have been terrifying.” She added, “She was doing nothing more than peacefully going about her business walking along public streets to go home.” “There’s a gap between the concern he felt for his Iranian girlfriend and the utter lack of concern he felt for the welfare, safety and security of his 19-year-old victim,” the judge said.

Mohebbifar trembled and cried throughout the sentencing. He was sentenced to a maximum term of eight years, and will be eligible for parole in January 2020.

He should never have left Iran!

For our ever expanding archive on Australia, go here.   Remember that the Sydney coffee-shop terrorist was also an Iranian refugee.

By the way, the US has taken a lot of Iranian refugees in recent years and I assumed most were religious minorities.  I think I had better do a little research on how many are Muslims.

Europe’s problems with Muslim migration and Islamic terrorism keep the news media hopping

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 20, 2015

Invasion of Europe news……

 

First anti-Islam march in the Czech Republic last Friday. Photo: AP Photo/Petr David Josek

There is so much news now coming out of Europe, I couldn’t possibly post individually on each item (I originally had about 5 or 6 stories).  The next best thing is to give you just a taste of what is happening with this round-up.  Thanks to several regular readers who sent these stories, and special thanks to ‘Pungentpeppers’ for sending a whole bunch more this morning.

Think about it, all of these hot news stories have some connection with migrants and ‘refugees’!

Germany

We reported that PEGIDA was shut down in Dresden this week (here), but marches went on in other cities.  The PEGIDA marchers were far-outnumbered by those who want more Muslim immigration to Germany, here at the UK Telegraph.

Czech Republic

Czechs grapple with Islam and Syrian refugee issue, here at Deutsch Welle.  And, hundreds rally in Prague against Islam, here.

 Denmark

Denmark holds first PEGIDA (anti-Islamification) rally.  News at France 24.com.

Switzerland

Authorities will not release three Iraqis detained some time ago claiming that they were developing a terror plot for the Islamic State at SwissInfo.ch.

Finland

Blogger says it was a Somali Muslim who hacked two non-Muslims to death with an ax from End Times Trumpet.  Also, police monitor social media for anti-immigrant sentiment in wake of slaughter, here.

 Sweden

Fear in Sweden as unaccompanied minors (most likely teenaged boys) flood into Sweden.  See the news at The Local.

 Belgium

Belgium deploys troops in the streets and Greece arrests four in foiled plot from SkyNews.  Migrants and asylum seekers plan their own march from Brussels to Antwerp in February, here.

Italy

In Perugia, a group of five migrants kicked a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, broke it to pieces, and then urinated on it (Israel News).  More details here if you read Italian.

Spain

Spanish police have arrested two Cameroonian migrants who killed as many as 10 people by pushing them off a boat full of migrants that was caught in bad weather as it was headed towards Spain. The killers believed that a Nigerian priest on board caused the stormy seas.  More at Euro Weekly News.

Check it out, France takes the prize for the most fighters it has supplied to the jihadists in Iraq and Syria! Consequently it may have the most coming home to show off their new skills. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30875705

France

Incredibly, the New York Times allows Marine Le Pen to tell her story.  And, in Calais about 150 illegal migrants were overcome by fumes from a fire they started, here, in French.

 Hungary

Prime Minister says Hungary is a Christian nation and immigration to the EU must be slowed at Nasdaq.com.

 Netherlands

Around 200 failed asylum seekers will be evicted from garage they have been occupying (Dutch News).

 Poland

Poland has set up refugee camps to accept around 180 refugees from the Ukraine who are of Polish descent, from the Aviationist. Poland doesn’t have much of an Islam problem (yet).

Bulgaria

We have a lot of posts on Bulgaria here at RRW.  Looks like they are continuing their fence along the Turkish border in hopes of reducing the migrant flow out of Turkey at Yahoo.News.

 UK

In addition to the wife torture/murder ‘Pungentpeppers’ reported on the other day, here is another ‘religion of peace’ adherent wife killer, Naveed Ahmed, who pleaded guilty to chopping off his wife’s head last year, from the UK Daily Mail.

It sure would be one ol’ boring Europe over there if it weren’t for all the Muslim refugees and asylum seekers producing newsworthy excitement.

Our archive on the Invasion of Europe is here.

Washington Post does the warm and fuzzy Syrian refugee story, so what else would you expect?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 4, 2015

Reporter Julie Zauzmer does the stereotypical report on a Syrian family in fear of Assad who have just managed to be in the first batch of Syrians “welcomed” to America.

You can read the lengthy early paragraphs about the family’s long ordeal until they were rescued by America (through the UN), by the US State Department and by the State Department’s resettlement contractor Catholic Charities all geared to get your mind right before we get to the all important question—how are these people going to make it in America without enormous taxpayer support?  He was a journalist who can’t speak English, she a hairdresser who can’t speak English.

Anne Richard Asst. Secretary of State (left) and Antonio Guterres (UNHCR): We take those that the UN sends us and run this whole program on a shoestring (over $1 billion a year) budget!

Washington Post (emphasis is mine):

The State Department has promised that the United States will take in 10,000 Syrian refugees in the next two years.  [Seems to me she said 10,000 annually here—so what is the truth?—ed]

[….]

The United States takes in a set number of refugees — 70,000 a year — no matter what troubled part of the world they come from.

The UN picks our refugees!

Candidates for resettlement are nominated by the office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, then interviewed by State Department officials. The rigorous process involves a background check, review of any documents the refugees can provide to prove their lives are at risk and numerous interviews to make sure the refugees’ accounts of their hardships remain consistent.

“Their stories have to hold water. They can’t be dishonest or criminals or would-be terrorists,” said Anne Richard, the assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration.  [She assumes they never lie, but she knows better.  We have admitted terrorists through the refugee program.—ed]

One reason they got in, the teenage daughters were candidates for sexual assault (in a Muslim country, but they never say that).

US State Department Daniel Langenkamp: The vulnerable teenaged girls in the family helped move them up the list. Photo: https://www.linkedin.com/pub/daniel-langenkamp/1a/197/563

In the Smaisems’ case, State Department spokesman Daniel Langenkamp said that the specific threat against Khaled, as well as the fact that the family had two teenage daughters in an environment known for its sexual-assault hazard, may have contributed to moving them up the list.

Richard said that 105 Syrians were resettled in the United States in fiscal 2014. In fiscal 2015, which began on Oct. 1, 112 have arrived.

If she now says it’s going to be 9,000 over two years she is going to really tick-off the contractors who want 15,000 per year!

As of mid-December, 9,972 Syrians had been nominated by the U.N. office and begun the process of applying for U.S. resettlement, Richard said. She said nearly all likely will be accepted within the next two years.

Once refugees arrive, they are assigned to a private organization that partners with the State Department to get the families settled. In the case of the Smaisems, it was Catholic Charities, the largest such group. [Partners!  They are contractors and why can’t these reporters for the mainstream media ever say that! Or, don’t they even know!—ed]

Refugees receive U.S. government stipends for up to three months, and federal grant programs help states support them for longer. But the money quickly tapers off.  [Federal grant money goes to the contractors who then launder it through their offices.—ed]

“This is not a luxurious program. This is very challenging,” Richard said. “It’s kind of run on a shoestring budget.”

Shoestring budget!  It is over $1 billion just to get 70,000 in the door!  That does not include most of the social services they will live on for years and years!

Khaled is keenly aware of that. His family’s initial cash aid has ended. According to Derek Maxfield, the associate director of Catholic Charities of D.C., the family is receiving food stamps, which will end after they have been in the country for eight months; local government cash assistance that amounts to $200 to $300 per month; and $1,000 monthly per family member through a Catholic Charities program. [There is no reason the food stamps will end! And, haven’t we been told many times that refugee resettlement doesn’t cost local taxpayer dollars?—ed]

The large Catholic Charities stipend is not charitable Catholic money—it is federal taxpayer money!   Come on reporters, stop being lazy, or is this to mislead?

That large Catholic Charities stipend, which will end after about four months, is predicated on the family’s efforts to become self-sufficient. Smaisem has been looking for work, though he says that his lack of English hampers him.

After you’ve read the long mushy (superficial) story, tell me—any chance this family is going to be “self-sufficient” any time soon?

Isn’t it about time that publications like the Washington Post and the New York Times begin to do some serious and careful reporting?  I know, I know, stop laughing!

Guest column: The abuser is a “refugee” or “asylum seeker”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 22, 2014

Editor’s note:  Reader ‘Pungentpeppers’ has gathered together some recent news for a brief summary of some items that fit a pattern worldwide.  Of course the first one is a story we have covered—the Australian-Iranian refugee terrorist from last week—however we didn’t discuss his record of abusing women.   Guest posts are welcome, but keep them short and send links to the news stories to which you are referring.  Guest posts and lengthy informative comments to an existing post are archived in our comments worth noting’ category.

When a domestic abuser is not deported, that’s deadly! Stories from December.

AUSTRALIA – Iranian fake sheik and refugee, Man Haron Monis (aka Mohammad Hassan Manteghi), held 17 hostages at gunpoint at a Sydney cafe and coffee shop, then killed 2 of them. The refugee had ABUSED his WIFE and was involved in her brutal MURDER. He was facing more than 40 charges of ASSAULT against WOMEN. Yet he was allowed to roam free in Australia’s largest city and was not deported – with tragic consequences.

In North Carolina (a big resettlement state), Arab Mohamed Ali, 35 will get 12 years for strangling his wife, then he will be out on a North Carolina street again. Based on our track record, deportation is unlikely.

CANADA – Somali refugee, Yusuf Osman Abdille, STABBED HIS WIFE and TWO CHILDREN TO DEATH, then “fell” from a bridge onto a Toronto parkway, landing in mid-day traffic in front of a hapless driver. The murder victim, Zahra Abdille, was a refugee who worked as a public health nurse in Canada. At one point, she had fled her abuser and took the children to a shelter for domestic violence victims. Later, she sought court protection but – unable to afford an attorney – she was denied relief. That final factor probably would not have prevented these deaths – but a deportation order would have.

CANADA – Attempted murderer Yiyan Xie, a Chinese national, is playing the deportation excuse game. Xie was due in Kitchener, Ontario, court this month for sentencing for his ATTEMPTED MURDER conviction of his EX-GIRLFRIEND, Yiyang Hao, a university student. Prior to the KNIFE ATTACK, he had bombarded Hao with emails for months, THREATENING to KILL her. In court, his attorney asserted that if Xie were deported to China, he might be executed. Boo hoo! Isn’t that what he planned for his girlfriend?!

UNITED STATES – An Ethiopian refugee, Arab Mohamed Ali, 35, will spend at least 12 years in prison after pleading guilty in the STRANGULATION MURDER of his WIFE Safaya Dadacha, 23, in 2013. After committing the horrendous deed, the murderer himself called 911 and waited with his two children for police to arrive. Let’s hope he’ll be DEPORTED! But maybe not…..  [US taxpayers paid to resettle him, now you get to pay for his incarceration.—ed]

During FY2013, the Obama Administration – instead of deporting – released offenders who had committed 1,317 acts of domestic violence. (See Senator Chuck Grassley below.) The Ethiopian murderer has two kids he did not kill – that’s “family”, isn’t it? And with the PC concern about uniting immigrant “families” – even though domestic abusers are deadly to families – this perp might eventually be released to wreak havoc upon the surviving kids.

Immigration lawyers and activists oppose deportation of domestic abusers. They say it’s unfair because we cannot deport our own domestic offenders. I say, if you have too much trash and trouble – get rid of some of the junk!

UK Sky News: 13 Somali refugees convicted in teenage girl sex ring case

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 28, 2014

Thirteen Somali men were convicted. Some were sentenced from 18 months to 13 years, some have not yet been sentenced. More expense for the British taxpayer who is punished for having “welcomed” the ‘least of these among us.’ And, tragic, of course, for the girls.

 

Update November 29th:  “Raping little girls is a religious requirement….”  See Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage Magazine, here.

While you were having your Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, the Bristol Crown Court was revealing to the British public the extent of the crimes perpetrated by a sex slavery ring run by Somali refugees in Bristol.

By the way, my alerts are filled this morning with stories about how awful it is that the UK has not thrown open its gates to Syrian (mostly Muslim) migrants.  I am not sure weak-kneed politicians are going to be able to hold out against the onslaught of negative publicity being rained on them by the ‘humanitarian industrial complex.’   And, if you want to argue that Somalis and Syrians are two different issues, well, go for it, but I’m sure the general public in the UK doesn’t see much difference.

From Sky News:

Thirteen men have been convicted of running a sex ring that saw teenage girls abused, raped and prostituted.

Victims were sexually abused and passed around the men’s friends for money in Bristol.

The court heard several of the girls were groomed to the extent they believed abuse was part of loving relationships they were having with the defendants.

The gang, all of whom are of Somali origin, faced more than 40 charges involving 10 victims aged between 13 and 17, mostly over offences that happened from autumn 2012.

Seven men were convicted at Bristol Crown Court on Wednesday and six following a separate trial in May, but details of the cases can only be revealed now after reporting restrictions were lifted by a judge.

Some of the girls were persuaded to have sex with their ‘boyfriend’s’ friends after being told it was Somali “culture and tradition” and “men always have sex with each other’s girlfriends”.  [Remember that the girls are infidels to these Somali rapists.—ed]

Sweden: Overweight Somali women in western countries causing increase in some diseases

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 27, 2014

So, I’m guessing that Sweden doesn’t have its own version of the food police. No Michelle Obama?

Here is one more example of the extra costs related to admitting certain ethnic groups to countries where views on health are diametrically opposed to what it is where they came from.

There are exceptions! Defying the stereotype, Swedish Somali model obviously did assimilate! http://beauty-around.com/en/tops/item/965-most-beautiful-somalian-women

From Science Index:

Physical inactivity presents a major public health challenge and is estimated to cause six to ten percent of the major non-communicable diseases. Studies show that immigrants, especially women, have an increased risk of non-communicable diseases compared to ethnic Swedes. Somali immigrant women have increased rates of overweight and obesity, low fitness levels and low levels of cardiorespiratory fitness compared to non-immigrant women. These findings suggest that Somali women are at increased risk of developing lifestyle-related diseases. Few studies explore determinants of physical activity among Somali women. The aim of this study was to explore Somali women’s views and experiences of physical activity after migration to Sweden. A qualitative focused ethnographic approach was used in this study.

Check it out, there are other articles about problems with Female Genital Mutilation, the problems with lack of Vitamin D (due to being covered all the time) and there is even an article about Somali men in Minnesota not getting exercise.

Another Somali woman who dares to challenge Islam is of course Ayan Hirsi Ali.  Wouldn’t you think she would be embraced by young western women instead of being vilified?

See our complete ‘health issues’ category here.  And, everything you need to know about migrants arriving in Sweden here.

Culture of domestic violence comes to Lewiston, Maine along with African asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 2, 2014

Somali community organizer, Fatuma Hussein, quoted in the Lewiston abuse story, lobbies for more welfare for Maine migrants earlier this year. http://bangordailynews.com/2014/05/23/politics/maine-attorney-general-rejects-proposal-by-lepage-administration-to-bar-general-assistance-for-immigrants/

A pregnant Angolan asylum seeker was run down and killed on a Lewiston street last week by her angry ex-fiance and so this story is all about how African women should speak up so that the police can protect them from the cultural norms they brought with them from Africa.

Frankly I am sick of stories about cultural conflicts and problems in Lewiston, Maine, the ‘Little Mogadishu’ of the Northeast.  So check it out yourselves (Portland Press Herald) titled:

Domestic violence often kept hidden by Maine immigrants, refugees

I don’t think the debate should be about how African women should speak up, it should be about why we are inviting so many to the US from cultures that are so diametrically opposed to our culture in respect to women’s rights (and a whole lot of other things).

See also Maine election year battle over welfare for asylum seekers.  And, one of our recent top posts, ISIS fighter had ties to Lewiston.

By the way, Maine has become the go-to state for asylum seekers because the state gives welfare to them while the feds only give welfare to successful asylum seekers who have been granted asylum and been declared a “refugee.”   Many of Maine’s would-be refugees arrive in the US illegally or overstay a visa, head to Maine, and then apply for asylum claiming they will be persecuted if sent home.

Baltimore: “Sponsor” allegedly sexually abused ‘unaccompanied child’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 6, 2014

You know this is just the beginning!

Tennessee state police photo. Would you turn a 16-year-old girl over to this guy? The feds did! http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2014-08-04/news/bs-md-co-minor-smuggle-charge-20140804_1_court-documents-honduras-teenage-girl

A 42-year-old illegal alien promised the Office of Refugee Resettlement (in Health and Human Services) that he would provide a separate bedroom for a 16-year old girl not related to him—AND THEY BELIEVED HIM!

These people live in la-la land and surely we will see many more such cases of abuse as the Obama border surge continues.

From the Daily Caller (emphasis is mine):

A 42-year-old illegal immigrant from Honduras who was awarded custody of an unrelated 16-year-old Honduran girl has been accused of sexual abuse and of smuggling her into the U.S.

Pedro Lara Portillo is charged with alien smuggling and encouraging an alien to illegally enter the country, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Lara, who told authorities he has been in the U.S. illegally for seven years, also lied to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement when he said that he and the girl would have separate rooms while she lived with him, according to federal court documents.

The girl came to the U.S. in late March and spent a month in the custody of HHS, which turned her over to Lara’s care.

The agency is in charge of finding housing for the tens of thousands of unaccompanied children apprehended at the U.S. border while they await deportation proceedings to commence.

The girl told Baltimore County police in early June that she had been smuggled into the country, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Lara and the girl’s mother coordinated the plan to smuggle her from Honduras through Mexico, and the teen eventually entered the U.S. through Texas.

“Lara admitted in sum and substance that he wired money to Mexico for the purpose of having [the girl] smuggled to the United States,” Department of Homeland Security special agent Edward J. Kelly wrote in the charging documents.

According to the federal documents, Lara and the girl did not have separate rooms, contrary to assurances he made in the custody arrangement with HHS.

The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately arrest Lara after they interviewed him, though he was eventually apprehended in Tennessee.

Boston: Somali former refugee charged with rape (possibly more than one)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2014

Just for a little change of pace tonight from the ever-expanding crisis on the border, ho-hum we will return to our never-ending Somali crime stories.  This time from Boston last week….

From the Boston Herald (Hat tip: crime sleuth ‘pungentpeppers’):

A second reported rape in the Seaport District by a livery driver in less than a year has the city’s taxi union and a South Boston state representative demanding a crackdown before another young woman is attacked in the trendy nightspot.

“This is a real public safety issue, particularly for women in my district,” said Southie state Rep. Nick Collins. “It’s something that we have to resolve and I’ll be looking to work with the city to come up with some new legislation.”

Said Said, 40, of 97 Doane­ St., Quincy, was ordered held on $35,000 cash bail yesterday at his arraignment in South Boston District Court after pleading innocent to charges of aggravated rape, unarmed robbery and receiving stolen property.

Police allege that at midnight Sunday, Said, who is of Somali descent, picked up a woman in a livery mini­van outside Legal Harborside restaurant on Northern Avenue and took her to a deserted South Boston location, where he raped her and stole her cellphone, cash and credit cards before dropping her off on State Street.

 He used the victim’s credit card.  Pretty dumb wouldn’t you say!

Police said they were able to track down Said after he was reportedly caught on surveillance camera using the alleged victim’s credit card to make a purchase at a Walgreens Pharmacy in Quincy.

The victim identified Said in a photo array set up by Boston police,­ according to court documents.

Attack is similar to one that occurred last summer:

Sunday’s alleged assault was eerily similar to an attack that occurred Aug. 6, 2013, when a woman told police she flagged down a livery sedan in South Boston thinking it was a taxi and was instead driven to a secluded area in Newton, where she was raped and assaulted by the driver.

The Boston Globe has more, here.

Using this opportunity to educate all of the new readers the ‘unaccompanied children’ are bringing to RRW, see this important testimony to the US State Department by a former refugee resettlement worker in Boston.
