Recall the Syrian refugee charged with sexually assaulting under age girls in the West Edmonton Mall swimming pool back in Feb of 2017?

Yeah, the charges were just dropped.

Go figger...

Charges dismissed against Syrian “Refugee” in West Edmonton Mall pool sexual assaults – Judge cites “unreliable witness testimony”

Quote:
Sexual assault charges have been dismissed against a man accused of groping six teen girls at the West Edmonton Mall wave pool, a provincial court judge ruled Friday morning.

Soeliman Hajj Soleiman was arrested in February 2017 after several teenagers reported being touched by a man in the wave pool.

Justice Joyce Lester cited unreliable witness testimony as a reason for the decision.
Like BCF, I'm thinking the real issue here is a Liberal judge.

Caution, Progs: Clicking on the next link will cause your head to explode. Do not, I repeat, do not, go there. I don't want to hear any p!$$ing & moaning afterwards. You've been warned.

NOT GUILTY verdict in Edmonton Mall sex assault case; victims' families in tears

Quote:
Not guilty on all 12 charges. That's the decision from Judge Joyce Lester in the trial of Soleiman Hajj Soleiman in Edmonton this morning.

That video is a pretty good quick summary. Thanks for the link.

It's always interesting (and more than a little sad) to unpack these ideologues' "journalism" in cases where they have an obvious bias.

Gunn all but rolls her eyes at the fact that Soleiman required word-for-word Arabaic-to-English translation during the trial. I've lived and worked in Latin America for 24 years, and I've had university-level language training. If I were to be hauled before a court here in Mexico, you're damn right I'd want someone translating whose job it is to do so professionally. This is a bias of Gunn and others who expect immigrants to magically become fluent in all regional dialects in Canada the moment their plane lands (and Soleiman came as a refugee, with little pre-arrival preparation).

Otherwise, Gunn doesn't do a terrible job of summarizing the Judge's concerns with possible issue with identification, the cops' handling of evidence (non-) collection, etc. Her little smirk at certain points sends a message that she believes, as she says to wrap up the piece, that the girls were "denied justice" in court. Since there is reasonable doubt that the proper suspect was identified, one would not say that the victims were 'denied justice'.

Soleimon may well be the perpetrator - he may also not be. If folks in here are believers in law and order, you have to accept how the legal process works, preferring a guilty person to go free rather than convict an innocent.

Were this anything other than a Syrian muslim refugee, there wouldn't even be a discussion of this case.

I told ya not to click on the link, didn't I... <shaking my head>

The irony of you complaining about ideologic "journalists" is apparently lost on you.

If you can't fluently understand a language after being immersed in it for 24 years, that says more about you personally than anything else. This coming from just another guy who has had university-level language training.

As far as your comments about "regional dialects" and "little pre-arrival preparation" is concerned, first, what a crock, it's a courtroom, not a bawdy house and second, one more example why all refugees/immigrants need a workable knowledge of English or French before they even hit the shores.

Next, the girls were denied justice. Pretty damn sure the pool wasn't full of groping Middle Eastern Muslim men. Oh, wait...

You wouldn't be nearly as sanguine if the perp was a white conservative male packing an AK & the victim a one armed, one legged, gay, overweight, trans female, Prog Muslim First Immigrant refugee from Syria, wheelchair-bound & believing in Globull Warming & Alternative Energy, would you...

Penultimately, from my perspective injustice is injustice, no matter whom is involved. Progs see it differently.

Finally, I'll be pointing out your hypocrisy (once again) when you next question said rule of "law & order"...

Twenty-four years, huh, CM? I guess what they say about many refugees, immigrants, etc., is true: You never actually do integrate, do you?

Lost for words: One in every 20 Torontonians can’t speak English or French, study finds

Quote:
One in 20 Torontonians can’t speak English or French and the language barrier has greatly impeded their ability to find a job, be active in the community and enjoy a decent life, says a new study.

More than 132,700 Toronto residents are unable to have a conversation in either official language and they account for 20.5 per cent of the 648,970 non-English and non-French-speaking population across Canada, said the Social Planning Toronto report to be released Saturday.
But Whitey is raaaaascist for not hiring them. It has nothing to do with the fact that they can't shpeaka da English...

This has the appearance of retitling the thread because there wasn't enough material to fill it under the original title.

Too polite by half. Appearance? It's precisely why.

In the 7 months since this thread was created there have been, what, 2 actual incidents of ATTAAAAAAAAAAACKS on Muslims in Canada? And one of them was by other Muslims?

The Prog narrative fell flat. Now we're going to attempt to bolster the narrative by including all immigrants. When that fails to press home the point, it'll be amended to include illegal aliens (but they won't be called "illegal aliens", they'll be called "irregular border crossers").

Next, we'll be treated to another update & include victims from around the world, not just Canada.

Progs are notorious for moving the goalposts.

The interesting thing is, now that CM has included all immigrants, it's going to be pretty damn easy to find news reports of immigrants attacking Canadians to match his posts.

Fortunately this incident was captured on video, otherwise the usual suspect in here would be denying it ever happened....
I guess even that doesn't matter... if they don't deny it, or diminish it, they simply ignore it and go off on a tangent. It's not denial, because that's an unconscious reaction: this is an intentional effort to deviate the conversation. It disrupts their narrative that Canada is tripping over itself to welcome immigrants with bags full of gold coins, private penthouse apartments, chauffeured limos and $10,000-month stipends.

Your inability to accept that there are hate crimes perpetrated against immigrants and muslims in particular says a great deal about your character. You continue to go on about my "inability" to post more evidence of any such attacks, and yet you remain silent in the face of the statistics posted at least twice previously in this thread, indicating that muslims are faced with these incidents only second to Jewish Canadians (a fact which did surprise me - and we rarely see any of those incidents reflected in the media as well).

Consider this news item from November 2017:
The number of police-reported hate crimes specifically targeting Muslims went down last year after spiking by over 250 per cent in the four years prior.

According to Statistics Canada data released Tuesday, police across the country recorded 139 hate crimes against Muslims in 2016, down from 159 in 2015.
Why do you refuse to concede that these attacks are occurring? What do you have to gain by playing down the expression of hatred against immigrants? What's your agenda in all of this? Are you in fact an ostrich, or a member of a white supremacy hate group? Which is it?

"Hate crime" is an Orwellian construct that isn't very instructive. Are you now including bad language as an "attack"?
