Utah: Muslim refugee shot by police after refusing to stop beating man with metal bar

You may have heard rumblings about a police shooting in Salt Lake City earlier this year. What you probably didn’t hear is that the person shot was a Somali Muslim refugee who was, with another Muslim, beating another man with metal sticks.

Mohamed’s life took a detour, Aden said, after the accident left his grandfather, who was a father figure, unable to remember his grandchildren.Mohamed started getting in trouble with police at age 12, according to court records. He spent time in juvenile detention centers for theft, trespass and assault, most recently in September.None of that prepared his family for the news that he had been shot by police.Police say Mohamed and a second person were beating a man with metal sticks when officers intervened Feb. 27. The officers fired after Mohamed moved toward the beaten man instead of immediately obeying a command to drop the stick, police said.

Somali refugee Abdullahi Mohamed — critically wounded in a high-profile police shooting in Salt Lake City last month — fled to the U.S. from a refugee camp, where food was scarce, scorpions scurried everywhere and a toilet was a hole in the ground.

The 17-year-old’s family settled in Utah, hoping for a better life.

But things took a turn and he began to get in trouble with police, cousin Muslima Aden said, after his beloved grandfather suffered a brain injury in a car accident.

The cousin also said, “I am Muslim, and I know what we’re practicing. It’s peace.”


Peace…at the end of a metal pipe.

  1. I got your peace right here you got humpin POS

  2. Good Fuck him!!!

  3. It’s a damned shame they didn’t blow his head off when they shot him! Now this POS gets to live the rest of his life on gov’t assistance, not to mention the possibility of a lawsuit against the police officer who shot him! Needless to say, his “court-appointed” FAT CAT will undoubtedly opt for a million dollar lawsuit based on the “poor child” who soooo tragically misses his “wonderful grandfather”! I mean, don’t ALL emotionally deprived “innocent” children have the uncontrollable NEED to beat up somebody that happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time??? The cousin still has the deranged insanity to say islam is the “religion” of peace. Good God, are these idiots a bunch of psychos or what?????                

  4. According to the AG currently named Lynch, the alleged perpetrators are to be called “young people who have become involved in our justice system”. She also states that they “should be viewed in a positive light no matter what”. Obama has changed the term solitary confinement to restrictive housing. We’re now living in lawless times.

    Ask yourself this…what is a Somalia citizen taking refuge from? Being poor? What then are we telling our own poor citizens? You must stay poor while we import other poor people and lift THEM out of poverty?

    And do NOT complain when they stick to their own government (Islam-sharia law). Despite them setting up a government inside our own we our being forced to accepted that government as a religion.

    This is a crime which never should have happened. Not only because of the evil act itself but because the perpetrator should never have been here at all. (Public law 414, 2, 212)

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
