After we posted yesterday’s article, “25 reasons to end Somali refugee resettlement now,” readers began sending more examples of inexcusably bad behavior by Somalis who came to America at the invitation of the U.S. government and were given every opportunity to succeed.
That’s why refugee status is so coveted. You are automatically given legal status, a free education, Medicaid healthcare, subsidized housing if you need it, and access to help from a multiplicity of private and government sources. U.S. veterans and homeless Americans should only be so lucky.
But the story Tuesday listed more than 25 cases of violent crime, terrorist attacks, sexual assaults, and fraudulent schemes, not to mention the more than 40 known cases of Somalis leaving the U.S. to join foreign terrorist organizations.
One of the cases we didn’t know about was that of young DeSean Daggs in Minnesota.
Daggs, 23, of Eden Prairie, was shot and killed on Jan. 7 of this year at a house party near the University of Minnesota, while another 22-year-old man was shot and wounded at the same party in the city’s Dinkytown section. The shooter was described by police as a tall, 6-2, man with thin build “of Somali ethnicity and light complexion,” the Star-Tribune reported on Jan. 8.
Police found Daggs dead in the front yard of the duplex and the second victim was being treated at Hennepin County Medical Center. No arrests have been made. The Somali suspect was wearing all black clothing and fled in an unspecified direction. He remains at large.
“It is believed that both individuals were shot by the same man wielding the same gun,” police spokesman John Elder said.
Investigators spoke with witnesses and anybody who attended the party or was near the scene in an effort to get a lead on the shooter’s identity and a motive.
“I couldn’t believe it, I just couldn’t believe it,” Daggs’ grandmother Tondra, told KSTP.
DeSean Daggs was the oldest of six children. His mother, Amber, said he enjoyed mixing music and was computer savvy. He recently left school at Hennepin Technical College to stay home and help take care of his paralyzed brother.
The life of DeSean, or “Shawny Mac” as his family called him, was worth more than all the guns and grudges in the world, his family says. “He was part of this family, we loved him,” said Amber Daggs, speaking to whomever pulled the trigger. “Why would you take him from us? Turn yourself in.”
What Daggs’ family likely does not know, is their son’s murder was totally preventable. It happened because of globalist politicians in Congress appropriating funding for fake refugees under the guise of a false humanitarianism. The U.S. Congress appropriates about $2 billion a year for refugee resettlement, which brings to American cities unnecessary crime, not to mention the added financial burden to courts and jails, schools and hospitals.
In yet another case, a Portland, Maine, woman who came to the U.S. as a 2-year-old child refugee, grew up to become that city’s first Somali-refugee police officer. Zahra Munye Abu, now 24, got in hot water over an incident that took place last month during a hip-hop concert in Worcester, Massachusetts. She was arraigned Jan. 25 on charges of assault and battery, resisting arrest, trespassing, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.
Abu pleaded not guilty and remained mum during the court appearance, the Portland Press Herald reports. She was arrested at a Ja Rule concert at the Palladium after she allegedly grabbed the head of security by the front of his shirt and refused to leave when asked to do so.
In a report filed in court, Worcester police said the 5-foot-2, 130-pound female officer was acting unruly toward concert hall staff and pushed her way through the crowd, “physically assaulting several customers.” Told by security and police that her behavior was unacceptable and she was “no longer welcome on the property,” Abu was asked to leave “two to three dozen times,” according to the report.
Officer Christopher Grilli wrote that after being told she was under arrest, Abu “tensed her body and tried to pull away from us in an effort to evade arrest. She squirmed around and tried to free herself from the handcuffs,” he wrote.
The report alleges that Abu swore at police, questioned their training and time in service and “refused to cease her profanity-laced comments toward staff.” Outside, as officers waited for a patrol wagon to take Abu to police headquarters, she allegedly moved toward another patron and said, “They’re racial profiling, I see you there, girl,” according to court documents.
Abu gained widespread media attention two years ago when she became the first member of Maine’s Somali community to be sworn in as a police officer. Like the killer Somali cop in Minneapolis, Mohamed Noor, Abu was a diversity hire. A notch on the belt of a liberal Democrat city mayor.
Abu was born in Kenya, where her Somali-born parents were living in a refugee camp, and moved to Maine when she was 2 years old. She attended college and studied criminal justice and women-and-gender issues at the University of Southern Maine before joining the Portland Police Department in 2016.
Portland Police Chief Michael Sauschuck said Officer Abu has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an internal review. Her next court hearing is March 12.
Abu’s arrest comes on the heels of another case of a Somali refugee cop gone bad, only with far worse consequences. In July last year 40-year-old Justine Damond, unarmed and dressed in her nightgown, was gunned down by Somalia-born police officer Mohamed Noor in Minneapolis. Damond was a native of Australia living in Minneapolis and engaged to be married to a Minnesota man. But the rogue cop, who was a diversity hire by Democrat Mayor Betsy Hodges, stole Damond from her fiancé and family.
After seven months of no action, the county has decided to convene a grand jury to look into the case. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman has said he will still make the final decision on whether to file charges against Noor.
