Was a plea deal necessary with dozens of witnesses,some of whom testified? Many American lives would be saved and tragedies avoided if corrupt politicians would stop importing Muslims and allowing illegal invaders to kill, rape, rob and terrorize our fellow citizens. via Man convicted in soccer ref’s death sentenced to 8-15 years.
Does he look remorseful by any stretch of the imagination?
DETROIT – Bassel Saad, the man who pleaded guilty to manslaughter for fatally assaulting a soccer referee during a game was sentenced to 8-15 years in the Michigan Department of Corrections by Judge Thomas Cameron Friday.
This sentence agreement was filed by Saad’s attorneys and the prosecution. Saad was also instructed to pay the $9,265 restitution to the victim’s family.
“For better or for worse, you’ve come to personify all that’s wrong with many people’s belief about the escalation of violence in sports,” Cameron told Saad.
And prosecutors, judges, politicians and immigration officials have come to personify all that’s wrong with America – they aid and abet in its destruction.
Cameron told Saad that his act destroyed many lives, including those of Saad’s own family.
John Bieniewicz died July 1, 2014 after police say he was knocked unconscious during a game he officiated at Mies Park in Livonia.
A number of players testified that Saad had been issued a yellow card by Bieniewicz for a foul earlier in the match. Bieniewicz was about to issue Sadd a second one for being verbally abusive when the referee was struck.
“As he went into his pocket to pull out his red card, he had his head down, and as he came up the guy punched him, hit him kind of in the neck and chin area and then the jaw. He was out cold,” said Joe Cosenze, who was playing in the game. “Had he seen it coming he might have been able to get his arms up, but the guy took two or three steps and came right in. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.”
Wait a few years, when there are millions more Muslims from the lands of jihad occupying U.S. territory. It’s safe to say, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”
Bieniewicz was in critical condition after the attack and died in the hospital two days later.
His widow Kris Bieniewicz gave a statement at Saad’s sentencing Friday. After addressing Saad, she held up a red card in court.

“The final thing that I want to do is I would like to serve Mr. Saad with the red card that he was entitled to,” she said.

“Before I go, the one final thing I would like to do is, I would like to serve Mr. Saad with the red card that he was entitled to,” said Kris Bieniewicz at the end of her sentencing remarks to Wayne County Circuit Judge Thomas Cameron.
Moments later, Cameron sentenced Saad to 8-15 years to prison as part of a deal in which the Dearborn man pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. He was originally charged with second-degree murder, a tougher charge that Kris said should have stayed. “It’s murder in my eyes,” she said. “Mr. Saad murdered my husband.”
Kris Bieniewicz said she’s going to try and raise their two sons “to the best of my ability…to make my husband proud. I hope I can.” But she struggles with the loss and how to explain to her children what happened on that day in late June. She wanted a longer sentence for Saad.
“I have a 9-year-old son that says to me: ‘But mom, I thought if you kill somebody, you go to prison for the rest of your life?’ How do I explain to him that the system didn’t do the final justice it deserved?”
She talked about how much her husband loved soccer, which he officiated in amateur games. “Soccer was his passion. He died doing what he loved,” but “his death was senseless. It’s ridiculous. It makes absolutely no sense.”
The 2014 attack was not Saad’s first. In 2005, Saad had assaulted a soccer player in a separate incident.
As part of his plea deal, Saad must pay more than $9,200 in restitution. An immigrant from Lebanon, Saad also could face deportation after he serves his sentence.
A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Khaalid Walls, said Friday that it “has not initiated remove proceedings against Mr. Saad. ICE is currently reviewing the case to determine the appropriate next steps.”
Khaalid Walls? How about a zero tolerance policy on violence by non-citizens. One strike and you and your family are out. And their assets available for restitution to the victims.
