Nashville: Somali gang members facing trial in sex trafficking case

This is what we get when the powers that be (TPTB) import Somali Muslims to the U.S. by the tens of thousands. Check out the mugs and names:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A federal trial involving more than a dozen defendants accused in a sex trafficking ring run by Somali gangs is being complicated by cultural issues within the Somali refugee communities in Tennessee and Minnesota.

U.S. District Judge William J. Haynes again this week ordered jurors to return on Monday as defense attorneys argued that the defendants, many of whom are refugees from Somalia, were juveniles at the time the alleged crimes occurred.

The indictment said three gangs called the Somali Outlaws, the Somali Mafia and the Lady Outlaws were forcing teenage girls into prostitution and operated in St. Paul, Minn.; Minneapolis; Columbus, Ohio; and Nashville.

After selecting a jury last month, the trial was delayed last week when prosecutors turned over thousands of documents and audio recordings from the investigation to defense attorneys on the eve of trial. Both defense attorneys and federal prosecutors have repeatedly declined to comment about the case.

“It can be frustrating to have delays, but it is understandable because the case is so complex,” said Derri Smith, executive director of End Slavery Tennessee, who will be an expert witness in the case. “I have the utmost confidence that the judge and jury will bring justice about in the case, but it’s challenging for all of them.”

The indictment accuses the gangs of finding and recruiting young girls for the purpose of prostitution in exchange for money and drugs between 2000 and 2010.

Out of the 30 individuals listed in the indictment, only 14 are going to trial this month in Nashville on charges of conspiracy to commit sexual trafficking of children by force, fraud or coercion and charges related to the sexual trafficking.

Many, but not all the defendants, are described as refugees who came to the United States as young children. Police have relied on immigration paperwork to determine their ages, but defense attorneys have argued in court that information in those documents are routinely incorrect due to cultural and language issues.

And don’t let them tell you this has nothing to do with Islam. If they weren’t Muslims they wouldn’t need special Islamic accommodations during trial:

  1. In the words of Michael Jackson, “Screw the children.”

  2. How about castration for the males and deportation for the lot of them, plus their families, plus the entire Somali community?

    • deportation will start from you unless you are native american. I AM A MUSLIM> lol AND I COME HERE TO STAY.

  3. and they all think they are so beautiful….really louzy lookers….yep…castration…sounds cool to my ballot….and a ticket home….

  4. Convict and then either incarcerate into general prison population with no access to any Moslem services or diet. The regular prison population would soon see tht accidents happened to those who abused children. Revocation of any rights they might have been granted, including citizenship or right of residence or asylum. One laternative might include the Roman treatment: random decimation! Or, one could institute forced patriation to homeland, regardless of sitiuation there. Send but a random few. That would help modify the activites of any refugees who abuse the situation.

  5. somali muslims that tells me how much hate you have for me as amuslim american but gues what we will be around for a while like it or not.
