Ohio: Muslim doctor guilty, hit and killed motorcyclist, didn’t even leave car to render aid

via Physician loses driver’s license for year in death – Toledo Blade.

Moments after a local physician was found guilty of vehicular manslaughter Thursday for striking and killing a Swanton area motorcyclist, Debbie Hilton summed up the last hours of her husband’s life.

“All Larry was doing on the morning of Aug. 30 was going to work at a job he loved on the bike he loved after kissing the wife he loved,” Mrs. Hilton said in an emotional statement to the court.

She, along with her daughter, Kristina Freeman and sons, Paul and Dan, described Lawrence J. Hilton to Toledo Municipal Judge Timothy Kuhlman as a husband and father they loved and the crushing loss they suffered the day he left for work at the University of Toledo for the last time.

“He was the rock in our family,” Mrs. Freeman said. “He was the ultimate source of comfort and reassurance. He was simply golden, but he is gone now.”

Dr. Nabil Ebraheim, 63, of 2935 Valley View Dr., Ottawa Hills, was southbound on Richards Road just before 6 a.m. that day when he stopped at the intersection of Dorr Street, then pulled out in front of Mr. Hilton, 54, who was eastbound on Dorr.

In a one-day trial before Judge Kuhlman, city prosecutors and defense attorneys called a series of police officers and accident reconstructionists to testify to the speed they estimated Mr. Hilton was traveling, whether or not he applied his front brakes, and whether Dr. Ebraheim could have seen the motorcycle — which had the right of way — coming.

Speed estimates ranged from 47 mph to 71 mph. The posted speed limit on Dorr Street at the time was 50 mph.

Defense attorney Jerry Phillips had argued Mr. Hilton forfeited the right of way because he was driving too fast for the early morning conditions, but the judge disagreed.

In rendering his guilty verdict, Judge Kuhlman said the motorcyclist’s true speed was “likely somewhere in the middle.”

“I do not believe the motorcycle was going as high as 65 or 71 mph. I don’t see that from the damage to the vehicle,” the judge said, adding that Mr. Hilton’‍s speed was not unreasonable. “In other words, a reasonable, ordinary, prudent person in Dr. Ebraheim’s position would have been able to see that motorcycle and yield to that motorcycle.”

After hearing from Mr. Hilton’s relatives, the judge suspended Dr. Ebraheim’s driver’s license for one year except for granting driving privileges for work. He ordered him to pay a $750 fine and court costs within a week, complete a defensive-driving course, and attend a victim-impact panel.

Mr. Hilton’‍s family told the court he loved his Harley-Davidson Street Glide and valued safety — never riding without a helmet or getting a speeding ticket.

Mrs. Hilton said Dr. Ebraheim had six previous traffic citations, and when her husband became his seventh, he did not even get out of his car to render aid. She said he later had his wife pick him up to take him to work.

“My husband was nothing more to you than an inconvenience, making you late for work,” she said.

 

Ohio: Muslim working for Homeland Security re-sues Experts Who Exposed His Terror Ties

He already dropped the charges once. via Courthouse News Service. h/t Bare Naked Islam

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (CN) – A Muslim “multicultural relations officer” for Ohio’s Office of Homeland Security claims in court that Internet bloggers defamed him and cost him his job by posting that he was an “Islamist mole” who sympathized with terrorists.

Omar Alomari sued the City of Columbus, Todd Alan Sheets, Stephen Coughlin, John Guandolo, Patrick Poole and a John Doe known on the Internet as “Rusty Shackleford,” in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.

Alomari was hired as a full-time multicultural relations officer in 2006 by the Office of Homeland Security (OHS), and was in charge of building relationships between the state agency and the Muslim community.

After he published two articles on Islamic culture and radicalization in 2007, Alomari says, “defendant Poole began writing a series of articles condemning individuals and organizations within Central Ohio’s Muslim communities as terrorists or terrorist sympathizers.”

Alomari claims Poole also began making public records requests for emails and other communications from the multicultural relations officer to Muslims in his area.

After the records requests, Alomari says, defendant Shackleford – who operates a blog called the Jawa Report – “began posting articles claiming that plaintiff had ties to terrorists, terrorist organizations, and/or organizations with links to terrorism.”

The complaint states: “the Jawa Report (a) labeled plaintiff an ‘Islamist mole,’ a ‘radicalized fox,’ ‘a former agent of a foreign government,’ and ‘a lying scumbag,’ (b) alleged that plaintiff was an ‘information pipeline’ to terrorists, (c) asserted that plaintiff’s work ‘help[ed] encourage radicalization,’ and (d) alleged that plaintiff ‘escorted’ terrorists into OHS.

“The Jawa Report alleged that plaintiff ‘liked to have sex with pretty blond-haired, blue-eyed infidel coeds,’ and labeled plaintiff ‘a serial sexual harasser.'”

Alomari claims that defendant Sheets – a member of the Columbus Police Department’s Terrorism Early Warning Group (TEWG) – organized a police training session on weapons of mass destruction and “included a photo of plaintiff and labeled plaintiff as a potential terrorist and/or stated that plaintiff had affiliations with terrorists and/or terrorist organizations.”

Alomari claims that during a 2010 training session titled “Understanding the Threat to America,” defendants “Coughlin, Guandolo and Poole accused plaintiff of being a ‘suspect,’ alleged that plaintiff used his position within OHS to ‘connect with terrorists,’ and promised to ‘keep digging’ into plaintiff’s background to ‘expose’ him as a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer.”

Alomari says he informed his supervisor of the remarks made at the training sessions, and after the assistant chief of police was contacted, the TEWG destroyed all of the documents bearing Alomari’s name or picture.

Alomari seeks compensatory and punitive damages for invasion of privacy, tortious interference with business contract, negligent supervision and spoliation of evidence. He claims he lost his job with the OHS because of the false statements linking him with terrorists.

He is represented by Lauren Knoll, in Dublin, Ohio.

 Much more from previous posts on al-Omari. The Columbus Dispatch reported this in July, 2010, Ohio Homeland Security official fired for not disclosing previous firing:

An Ohio Homeland Security official has been fired for failing to fully disclose his background when he began working for the state in late 2006.

Omar Alomari, 59, was fired Tuesday for dishonesty stemming from his failure to list his prior employment at Columbus State Community College, where he was fired after an improper consensual sexual affair with a student.

Alomari also gave “false information” when he was interviewed by investigators, according to his discharge letter from Thomas Stickrath, director of the Ohio Department of Public Safety.

Jawa Report reported, Ohio Homeland Security had to destroy thousands of Alomari’s “anti-radicalization” brochures for promoting terror-linked groups:

Ohio: Muslim who turned IHOPs into money laundering, illegal alien harboring, identity theft dens pleads guilty

via Ex-owner of Toledo-area IHOPs, wife pleads guilty – Toledo Blade. h/t Dee

Tarek Elkafrawi, 57, of Middleton Township near Perrysburg pleaded guilty to 53 counts, including conspiracy to commit money laundering, alien harboring, identity theft, and arson. His wife, Kelly Elkafrawi, 51, pleaded guilty to one count each of money laundering and alien harboring.

Elkafrawi’s seven IHOP restaurants – six in northwest Ohio and one in Evansville, Ind. – were raided in 2011 by federal agents. The Elkafrawis and 16 of their employees were then indicted in May, 2012 on charges that they hired more than 200 illegal aliens to work at the restaurants, using stolen, false, and multiple identities to under-report their income and qualify for government assistance programs.

In court today, Tarek Elkafrawi admitted his role in the conspiracy and admitted he conspired to manipulate sales figures, payrolls, and losses to avoid paying taxes and royalties to IHOP’s corporate owner.

A sentencing date was not scheduled.

From our previous post on the initial arrests: Muslims turn Ohio IHOP’s into crime dens, hired 200+ illegal immigrants

The “schemes” resulted in a “significant financial loss to corporate IHOP,” of about $3 million, said George Crouch, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI, during a news conference this afternoon in downtown Toledo.

“These defendants turned pancake houses into crime dens,” said U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio Steven Dettelbach in a news release. “This indictment lays out a menu of crimes ranging from harboring undocumented workers to identity theft to money laundering to insurance fraud.”

The agency also accuses Mr. Elkafrawi of employing about 200 illegal immigrants at his restaurants, most of whom used fraudulent or stolen identities.

Mr. Elkafrawi is accused of arranging for people to be brought into the country illegally and having store managers accept false paperwork for employment. If there was no paperwork, he allegedly had Mr. Gamboa, Mr. Leon-Gonzalez, and others obtain documentation.

Federal authorities say that Mr. Elkafrawi generated $1.2 million in unreported income by manipulating wages and under reporting income of the undocumented workers, according to the indictment.

In 2008, federal authorities said, Mr. Elkafrawi’s Findlay IHOP location burned as a result of arson. Investigators said Mr. Leon-Gonzalez set the fire after being directed to do so by Mr. Elkafrawi and Mazen Khdeer, who was either a manager or owner at some of the locations.

After the fire, Mr. Elkafrawi filed a $1.3 million insurance claim.

Ohio: Muslim cabbies refuse to drive cabs for gays

When Islamic supremacists exhibit homophobia no one questions it.  via Cab Controversy: Some Cleveland cabbies refusing to promote a ma – 19 Action News h/t Under the Burka

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – Some local cabbies are taking a stand and refusing to promote a major event in the area.

The protest centers around signs promoting the Gay Games that are on top of airport cabs.

Some drivers, for religious reasons, are refusing to drive the cabs. And we’re told these are predominantly drivers of the Muslim faith.

19 Action News reporter Brian Duffy spoke with about 20 cabbies at the airport who are still driving and all of them confirmed there are drivers who have walked off the job on protest. Representatives of AmeriCab, one of the three cab companies on the job at the airport, also confirmed the protest but say only one of their drivers has been reassigned.

We’re told at least 16-17 drivers who work for Ace Taxi, another company working out of the airport, are no longer driving.

We went to Ace but were told they were too busy to talk to us.

Yellow Cab, a third cab company at the airport, never returned our calls.

Today, two of the three taxi cab companies (Ace and Yellow Taxi Cab) operating from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) were informed by several of their drivers they will no longer participate in the airport’s (CLE) dedicated taxi cab program. The drivers informed their respective companies their decision was based on religious reasons. The airport is committed to providing this necessary customer service to our arriving passengers seeking transportation from the airport to their final destination. An agreement has been brokered by the airport between the taxi cab stand operator, Standard Parking, and the affected taxi cab companies that will allow for the replacement of those drivers who no longer wish to participate in CLE’s taxi cab program. The affected taxi cab companies will backfill the airport’s dedicated fleet with metered taxi cabs until each company can hire permanent drivers for the airport’s taxi cab program. It is expected to take approximately two to three weeks to repopulate the airport’s Taxi fleet.

Statement by Airport Director Ricky Smith

 Muslims living in the U.S. have burned down a packed gay nightclub, kicked gays out of cabs, drove around San Fran shooting gays in the face with bb guns and videotaped it, beat gays in the street and the national media completely ignore it. They give Muslims a pass. The leftists and the politicians that profit from them ignore it as well.

Numerous examples here.

Ohio: Billboards claim “Jesus is Muslim” and “Mohammed is in the Bible” (updated)

UPDATE below icna-billboard

via Billboard that says ‘Jesus is Muslim’ upsets some groups | The Columbus Dispatch.

A group plans to protest near a North Side billboard carrying messages about the Islamic faith.

Protesters are specifically opposed to the message “Jesus is Muslim” that some recently saw on the billboard on Cleveland Avenue. The message did not appear on the billboard this afternoon, however.

The messages placed by the Ask a Muslim organization also list the group’s website.

Members of several Christian churches say they will pray, preach, sing and carry signs on Saturday to promote their belief that Jesus is the son of God who rose from the dead.

“Jesus isn’t Muslim. To insinuate that he is, is a lie, an absurdity,” said the Rev. Bill Dunfee, pastor of New Beginnings Ministries in Warsaw in Coshocton County. “Our motive is just simply to defend the church and promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Muslims call Jesus a prophet and consider all prophets — including Abraham, Moses and Mohammed — to be Muslims.

“Muslims are Christians — if ‘Christian’ means someone following the teachings of Christ, so by learning about Islam, you are not disobeying Jesus,” according to the website of Ask a Muslim, based on the Northwest Side.

The billboards are a collaboration with the New Jersey-based Why Islam, where spokesman Ashfaq Parkar said the group also operates an information line seeking to “promote peaceful coexistence through dispelling misunderstanding about the faith.”

“There’s nothing wrong with having differences in terms of what to believe, and there’s nothing wrong with talking about them and getting know each other,” he said.

A billboard saying Jesus is Muslim might be “a little overboard” and could upset certain Christians, much like certain messages about Mohammed upset some Muslims, said Imran Malik, an advocate of interfaith relations and president of the board that oversees the Noor Islamic Cultural Center in Hilliard.

The center is not associated with the billboard or with Ask a Muslim.

 Another article pointed to other billboards and the curious timing of the billboards – right before Easter:

Controversial billboards in Columbus, Ohio, reading “Jesus is Muslim” and “Mohammed is in the Bible” are drawing protests from local Christians who say Muslims are “hijacking” the name of Jesus.

“During this most Holy Lenten Season we find the messages on the billboards to be insensitive, dishonest and deserving of a response from concerned Christians. We will be on the streets to proclaim Jesus is NOT Muslim but Jesus is Lord!!”

The man who created the billboard groups had this to say to Muslims about Jesus:

ICNA executive and original Director of the Why Islam campaign – Sabeel Ahmed has written:

“…showing happiness and joy on Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Good Friday is like shaking hands with Satan and telling him to carry on the good work. Indeed Islam came to tear down the pillars of kufr and replace them with the pillars of Islam”

“Armed with facts on Christmas and eloquent words of Islam, the door of Dawah to the Christians should be wisely open. When the Christians see us restraining from observing Christmas, they will curiously ask us for the reason. This opportunity should be used by each single Muslim to discuss Islam and invite non-Muslims to Islam…a Muslim can’t enjoin in any aspect of Christmas in the disguise that Jesus is our Prophet too.

Meanwhile, Christians Are Warned Against ‘Slandering’ Allah in Jesus’ hometown and in Africa, Muslims announced in a recent video that they “will enter churches and slaughter Christians” (to spread sharia).

Note: A reader sent in this sermon from an imam in Ohio: The crucifixion is emphatically rejected by the Qur’an.

Islam categorically refutes the idea that Jesus was killed. And, therefore, the idea of Easter is in turn rejected – it does not exist in Islam.

And then there is this: 50 Reasons Muhammad Was Not a Prophet (in Under Five Minutes)

UPDATE:  THEY TOOK THE “JESUS IS MUSLIM” BILLBOARD DOWN

About 100 stout hearts battled the elements to stand up for Jesus. There is a lot of good info on my Facebook page. We have posted some great moments from the rally…vids of the powerful speakers. It is worth your time to visit and read the reports. Go here.

But the bottom line is that the Muslims took down the “Jesus Is Muslim” billboard. You read that right…THEY TOOK DOWN THE SIGN!!

I don’t think you understand the significance of that statement. We are not some powerful media outlet…we used social media to draw a crowd. We didn’t ask them to take the sign down. We didn’t whine and complain about how they dishonored Jesus. We didn’t beg them to be nice.

We just showed up. That’s it. We showed up on the streets and called them liars. They took down the sign.

It didn’t take a court order. It didn’t require us burning down any building. It didn’t require months of negotiations. We simply showed up. We told them their sign was a lie. They made a weak attempt to defend it. They said “anyone who submits to God is a Muslim.” That was all they had.

We never once asked them to take the billboard down. We believe in free-speech. We made them blink. They took the sign down. Light always causes darkness to flee.

Ohio: Four Somali Muslims arrested in $670,612 food stamp fraud

They sent the money overseas, likely back to Somalia. via Feds: Four charged with $670,612 food stamp fraud. h/t RRW

Four men from Northeast Ohio were charged in a five-count indictment with engaging in a conspiracy to defraud the food stamp and Women, Infants and Children programs from a store on Detroit Avenue in Cleveland, law enforcement officials said.

Indicted are: Bashir Mohammed, 31, of Cleveland; Yusuf Maalin, 45, of Cleveland; Ali Shire Ahmed, 54, of North Olmsted, Ohio; and Farah Hasan Warsame, 27, of Cleveland.

The indictment alleges that Mohamed, Maalin, Ahmed, and Warsame conspired to illegally allow customers to redeem food stamp and WIC benefits at Bashir Market, 8401 Detroit Avenue, in exchange for cash, ineligible items, and credit towards overseas wire transfers.

Mohamed, Maalin, and Warsame allegedly worked at the market and redeemed the food stamp and WIC benefits for the cash, unauthorized items, or credit towards overseas funds transfers. The credit for overseas funds transfers was tracked on a ledger kept at the market, according to the indictment.

Mohamed or Maalin would then provide Ahmed with cash or a check that Ahmed would take to Columbus to send overseas by wire transfer.

The indictment alleges that the conspiracy involved the attempted redemption of approximately $670,612 in food stamp and WIC benefits, according to the indictment.

The conspiracy took place between 2008 and last year, according to the indictment.

In addition to the conspiracy charge, Mohamed, Maalin, Ahmed, and Warsame are also charged with counts of food stamp fraud, unlawful food stamp redemptions, and WIC fraud. Ahmed is charged with one count of money laundering.

 

Ohio: Muslim college professor threatened to kill female professor

via Prof threatened lives, suit says h/t Iron Burka

A harassment suit filed by an Oberlin College professor last week accuses a colleague of making death threats.

EunJung An, associate professor of French and cinema studies, is seeking at least $25,000 in damages from the college, which she said did nothing to protect her.

She filed papers in Lorain County Common Pleas Court saying fellow professor Ali Yedes crossed a line with women who work in the French and comparative literature department.

Now An fears for her safety.

The problems allegedly started in January 2006, when An said Yedes pointed his finger in her face and accused her of betraying and undermining him.

During a 45-minute tirade, Yedes told An that “in his culture, he could have had the female department chair killed because of his perceived mistreatment by her in postponing his tenure,” the lawsuit claims — and when finished yelling, he tightly hugged An.

The Oberlin College website identifies Yedes as a “Muslim religious life affiliate” with the Islamic Center of Cleveland.

The confrontation was so loud that a security officer appeared and asked if everything was all right, according to the suit.

An said she felt physically threatened and when she complained to a senior department member, she was told she “needed to develop a thicker skin.”

Yedes allegedly told another professor in August 2013 that he brought his nephew to the United States on a student visa specifically to “stab and kill someone from his department.”

When the nephew didn’t follow through with the demand, Yedes beat him and the nephew fled the country, the suit said.

The worker in whom Yedes confided reported that information to the Oberlin College dean of arts and sciences. An’s suit said the college failed to tell her of Yedes’ threat against her life.

The dean later told An the college was not aware of the threat, according to the suit.

An said she was moved to another building, then to a basement — creating a number of job burdens — to avoid more hostile interactions with Yedes. Another female worker who the suit said was harassed was moved as well.

Meanwhile, Yedes was given tenure and a larger office, An said.

The suit also accuses Yedes of calling her a whore and other defamatory words, and disrupting meetings with outbursts. His behavior has been erratic and abusive and caused turnover of five acting French chairs, the court papers said.

The suit cites other run-ins with female professors, including incidents in April 2008 and February, April, and July 2009.

One involved Yedes allegedly putting his hand in a faculty member’s face and forcing her away from him, backing her into an administrative assistant’s office.

Oberlin College was sent a summons on Monday. No further court dates have been set as of publication.

Ohio: Marietta College serves halal food, seeks “housing options for Islamic students”

Richard Danford, Marietta College’s vice president of diversity and inclusion agreed.

“Because of this, other people have engaged with (the Muslim students) in positive ways. This has given the students a level of confidence that they belong here,” he said.

The college has also began looking for ways to provide more food and housing options for Islamic students, said Pastoor. For example, the college started serving Halal food in its campus dining hall within the last month, he said.

If the experiences of incoming petroleum engineering student Rana Al-Homoud are any indication, the campus atmosphere has certainly changed.

Al-Homoud is from Saudi Arabia and wears an abaya-a floor-length cloak-in addition to her head covering. Despite that, she has felt no discrimination on campus, she said.

“I feel the people here are normal. Some want to learn my language or try my food,” said Al-Homoud, 19, who started at Marietta College this semester and has only been in the community for around a month.

Ohio: Owner of apartment building charged in arson deaths of 2 Toledo firefighters

First Seattle, now Toledo? via Owner of apartment building charged in deaths of 2 Toledo firefighters – Toledo Blade.

The owner of a North Toledo apartment building where two firefighters died Sunday in a fire was charged today with murder and arson.

Abou-Arab

Ray Abou-Arab, 61, who owns 528 Magnolia St., was charged in Toledo Municipal Court today with two counts of aggravated murder and two counts of aggravated arson in relation to the fire at that apartment building. Toledo firefighters Stephen Machcinski, 42, and James Dickman, 31, died while fighting a fire at the building.

Mr. Abou-Arab was arrested today at 2:20 p.m. and at 3:18 p.m. was booked into the Lucas County jail. According to jail records, the suspect was arrested by Toledo police at the Safety Building.

Mr. Abou-Arab, of 1311 Sierra Dr., Oregon, is accused in court documents of setting the fire. The documents state Mr. Abou-Arab entered the building’s garage and stayed there for more than a minute. He then entered a store front at the same location. Immediately after he left the garage, an occupant of the apartment adjacent to the garage noticed the wall was on fire.

The court documents state that the “origin and cause investigation” determined Mr. Abou-Arab used an ignitable liquid inside the garage to cause the fire

Investigating agencies have included Toledo fire investigators, Toledo police, the FBI, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the State Fire Marshal, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

Toledo Police Detective Deb Hahn also wrote, in the criminal complaint filed Friday, that a witness saw Abou-Arab “enter the garage located at 528 Magnolia where he remained for over a minute….Immediately after Abou-Arab exited the garage structure, the occupant of the rear apartment adjacent to the garage at 528 Magnolia noticed the wall of the structure was on fire.”

According to Ohio code Abou-Arab could face up to life in prison with or without the possibility of parole if convicted on a single count of aggravated murder.

The punishment, however, would depend on if the murder charges are prosecuted with the addition of one or more specifications considered aggravating circumstances. 

In addition to the pair aggravated murder charges filed, both felonies, Abou-Arab also faces two counts of aggravated arson.

The aggravated arson charges do include the specification that there was “substantial risk of serious physical harm to another person other than the suspect.”

This is not Abou-Arab’s first time facing legal action in the Toledo area. According to court records, he has also been charged with the illegal use of food stamps, telecommunications fraud and the unauthorized use of property computer equipment.

No word on where Abou-Arab is from or his immigration status.

Ohio: More Muslims Arrested in More Food Stamp Fraud

via Grove City Men Accused of Food Stamp Fraud – WSYX ABC6. h/t Refugee Resettlement Watch

GROVE CITY — State agents cracked down on a gas station shop owner and his employee, who allegedly cheated taxpayers out of hundreds of dollars in a matter of days.

Taxpayers lost $3 billion every year in food stamp fraud, according to an undercover video.

Mohammed Aqel and Ahmad Hijazi are accused of contributing to that figure by trafficking food stamp cards in Grove City.

The men were apparently accepting the cards even though their Marathon shop on Broadway is not certified to take the welfare.

Undercover agents with the Ohio Investigative Unit said they posed as customers at this Marathon more than twice in the last few weeks. They said they sold the suspects three EBT cards for more than $100 cash.

The benefits on the cards amount to five times that price.

Agents said Aqel and Hijazi spent it all. They suspect they either bought groceries for their own homes or stocked the shelves at the business.

The duo faces felony charges and risk losing their liquor license.

Calling a pregnant mother’s death the worst crime he had ever seen, a judge sentenced an ex-Ohio doctor to 36 years in prison Friday as he blasted the defendant for not trying to save the woman as she suffered respiratory distress from a heroin overdose.

Former emergency room doctor Ali Salim had faced up to 37 years in prison. He was given nearly all of that with a sentence of 36 years and four months; a few weeks are likely to be subtracted because of time he’s already served. He previously pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of Deanna Ballman and her nearly full-term child, who was to be called Mabel.

Delaware County Judge Duncan Whitney also fined Salim $70,000 and slapped the state’s toughest sex offender label on him, requiring him to report to authorities every three months for life when released. Prosecutors also say Salim, a native of Pakistan, would be eligible for deportation once he serves his sentence.

Whitney said Ballman’s character had no bearing on the case, which instead came down to a doctor who failed to revive her.

“Quite frankly, this is the worst crime this court has ever seen,” Whitney said. “You were a man of medicine, sir. To allow someone to die — you obviously were aware that they were struggling respiratorily — it’s unthinkable.”

Ballman’s mother, Lori Ballman, called Salim “a real Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” who committed a despicable crime.

“You could have stopped it. You could have resuscitated her. You could have called 911. You could have at least delivered Mabel, so we could at least have her in our lives,” Ballman said, addressing Salim. “But no. No. You chose to just let them die. You watched them die.”

Ballman died of a fatal heroin overdose, which investigators say Salim administered at his house in an upscale central Ohio neighborhood. Rohrer says there is no evidence Ballman used drugs.

Ballman’s body was found the next day in the back of her car on a rural road a few miles from Salim’s house.

A former Ohio doctor accused of killing a pregnant woman last year by injecting her with heroin after she answered a Craigslist ad pleaded guilty today for her death and that of her nearly full-term unborn child.

Salim pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of Deanna Ballman and her unborn daughter, who was to be named Mabel Lilly.

The Ft. Hood jihadist killed a pregnant woman and her unborn baby as well yet the feds did not charge him accordingly.

Ballman, 23, was nine months pregnant when she died.

Salim also pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse, described as ‘inhumane things’.

He also entered a type of guilty plea to a charge of rape under which he maintains his innocence but acknowledges prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.

The tampering with evidence charge alleges Salim erased photos and video of Ballman from his phone, though the images were later recovered by investigators, said Kyle Rohrer, assistant Delaware County Prosecutor.

The guilty pleas avoid any uncertainties from a trial and gave Salim the chance to take responsibility in court, Rohrer said.

Ballman’s mother and sister attended the hearing but declined to comment. The family appreciates the work of investigators and will speak at sentencing, their lawyer Greg Helser said today.

Salim remains free on house arrest on $1 million bond.

He remained free even after confessing to the double murder and rape. WTF!!!

Women who previously answered ads placed by Salim reported being accosted, sexually assaulted or asked to be alone in the house while he painted the human digestive system on their abdomens, according to police records.

Salim is also the target of a $40 million lawsuit filed by Ballman’s family earlier this year blaming him for her death.

That lawsuit, which also named Salim’s employer and Craigslist, has been on hold during the criminal case.

Assistant county prosecutor Kyle Rohrer said in February that Salim treated Ballman’s body ‘in a very inhumane way,’ but wouldn’t elaborate on how.

Ohio: Terror-linked CAIR tried to infiltrate advisory council, denied

via BMV photos worry Muslim group | Politics Extra.

The launch of Ohio’s new facial recognition system has led to violation of the religious rights of Muslim-Americans, a civil rights group says.

Some Muslim women who wear head coverings have complained that driver’s license photographers have asked them to adjust their scarves to expose their hairline and ears, features they cover for religious reasons. Sikh men and women have also been asked to remove their turbans, the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Friday in a statement.

The facial recognition technology can best match the driver’s license photo with a snapshot of a person if all the person’s features are exposed in both photos, as it measures the distance between the eyes, ears, nose and mouth, for instance.

But the Bureau of Motor Vehicles allows religious head coverings in driver’s license photos. So a person who is asked to remove a scarf or turban need only tell the photographer he or she is wearing it for a religious reason, spokesman Dustin Fox said. While a woman’s scarf may not cover her forehead, it may cover her hair and ears, according to Ohio law.

Religious face coverings, however, have long been required to be removed so that the photo is usable for identifying someone if they are pulled over, Fox said.

CAIR and the American Civil Liberties Union had each asked for a seat on Attorney General Mike DeWine’s advisory group on the facial recognition system, but those requests were denied. The group has only criminal justice experts on it, but its meetings will be open to the public, DeWine’s spokeswoman said.

“The attorney general should have informed the legislature and sought public comment before implementing this new and potentially invasive technology,” CAIR-Cleveland Executive Director Julia Shearson said Friday in a statement. “Now his office has blundered again by not including privacy and civil liberties experts on the belatedly-formed commission that will help establish the guidelines after-the-fact for a program that is already up and running.”

Facial recognition is an invasive and privacy-stripping technology. The only thing worse would have been allowing CAIR on the advisory committee to exempt Muslims – who are one of the primary reasons why such technology is being deployed. Right?
