Clare Bronfman becomes new leader of cult
A mother said she has filed a formal complaint to police after they refused to investigate a vicious alleged attack on her 12-year-old daughter stating it would not be “cost effective” and that “crime has gone through the roof”.
Victoria Woods said her daughter Isabelle was punched, kicked, and thrown down a hill in Wildmoore Avenue Park, Oldham, on Wednesday in an unprovoked attack after she was set on by a group of around 15 youths — none of whom she knew, Manchester Evening News reported.
Recalling how her daughter was “in floods of tears” after the attack, which left her with bruising, deep scratches, and “caked in mud”, Ms. Woods described the response from Greater Manchester Police (GMP) over the incident as “diabolical”.
A day after reporting the assault she received a telephone call from a female officer who explained that police would not be taking the case any further “because it wasn’t a major crime and it was ‘just kids fighting’, in her words,” Ms. Woods said.
“She said the inspector had decided it was not ‘cost effective’ to investigate it in terms of the cost and manpower hours.
“I made it very clear I wasn’t impressed and I didn’t think it was an adequate response,” she said, noting: “It’s not just girls fighting. There was a group of 15, one attacked her and one was videoing it.
“It was not a situation she could defend herself in. My daughter is terrified of going out.”
Ms. Woods said she later received a follow-up call from a detective constable who reiterated the decision not to investigate, maintaining it would not be “cost effective” and that it was not a “major crime”.
The officer also “tried blaming the government for not having enough police officers, and said that crime had gone through the roof”, she said.
“She kept repeating it was not cost effective, that she doesn’t like ringing people to say they will not be investigating, but it is the government’s fault and that they don’t have enough police officers,” added Ms. Woods.
Superintendent Danny Inglis, of GMP Oldham Borough, said: “I understand the alarm that this assault on the young girl may have caused but an assessment was made that it wouldn’t be in the public’s interest to continue with the investigation.
“This is due to the amount of time and resources that would be spent on the investigation where a successful conviction would be unlikely.”
Earlier this year, GMP Chief Constable Ian Hopkins admitted the force was “just not able to get to every single crime and investigate every single crime to the degree the public would wish us to”.
Speaking amidst claims police had lost control of the streets — with complaints Hyde residents were being “held to ransom” by gangs of thugs — the police chief said that officers were prioritising “murders, serious sexual offences and terrorism” over investigating less serious crimes.
So-called hate crime, however, is taken very seriously by GMP, which says it takes a “victim-centred” approach to investigations and regularly holds awareness campaigns dedicated to driving up the number of reports.
I sympathize with the police having dwindling resources as lawlessness increases. One of the reasons lawlessness is increasing is because of increasing numbers of gangs and the very fact that police are not enforcing minor crimes. This sends a message both to the gangs and to their victims. To the gangs it says you have nothing to fear from us. To the victims like Isabelle it says, you are not important enough for us to bother with.
Both of these messages are the opposite to what police should be doing - putting fear into gangs and removing it from victims. Teen gangs progress to become adult street gangs if they are allowed to and their criminal activities progress from bad to worse. As long as Manchester Police allow teen gangs to get away with minor crimes, major crimes will continue to grow. A vicious circle that is not being addressed.
A British woman imprisoned for weeks as a sex slave in Europe has escaped, smashing through a window to flee from her attacker. She was then rescued after police traced her phone signal to an isolated home in southwest Italy.
The woman, from northern England, had been living in Germany for work when she met Mamadou Jallow through Facebook. The Burkina Faso national convinced her to visit friends of his in Italy.
Once there, the Briton was bundled into a room where her phone was taken from her and she was imprisoned for two weeks, during which she was repeatedly raped by Jallow, 37, and two of his friends. Her bank account was also emptied.
After several weeks, the woman managed to get hold of her phone and call her family for help. They had already contacted police after not hearing from the her for several months.
Her phone signal was traced to Rosarno in southwest Italy. Police then coordinated with the local force in Rosarno and they were able to guide the woman to safety after she escaped through a window. Jallow and the two other suspects were arrested a short time later.
A police spokesman in Rosarno said: “The woman was in a terrible state. She was kept as a slave for two weeks and abused by three men.” Police have arrested Jallow and two men from Gambia.
The British woman is recovering from her ordeal in hospital.
Child’s Right International (CRI), the group making the call also wants reports of investigations into such activities to be made public.
This, they believe will go a long way to deter others from engaging in same.
The comment follows the interdiction of the headmaster of Tweneboah Koduah Senior High School, Francis Badu Agyare, by the Ashanti Regional Education Directorate following allegations of sexual misconduct involving three female students.
The Executive Director of Child Right International, Bright Appiah, told Citi News that merely interdicting accused persons or transferring them was not deterrent enough.
“When we conduct investigations into a matter that reveals that certain people to whom we’ve committed our children to are taking advantage of them, we have to take the report seriously and take all the appropriate measures to deal with it.”
Often times, various education directorates in the country only transfer or temporarily suspend teachers and head teachers found guilty of sexually abusing their students, a situation many have described as worrying, and have also attributed the growing trend of such cases to the lenient punitive measures.
It's time to join the 21st century! Stop abusing your children!
The Byculla police arrested a woman support staff member of a school on Monday for allegedly sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl.
The female staff (aaya) was also suspended by the school principal on Monday after the victim's parents complained against her for touching the kid inappropriately.
The victim's parents informed the school staff that around two weeks ago, their daughter had started complaining about pain in her private parts and was reluctant to go to school. A medical examination revealed that the pain was a result of physical abuse. The child reportedly told the parents that the aaya touched her private parts.
"The parents approached us with the complaint this morning. After hearing what the child had revealed, we suspended the staffer until a police inquiry in the case is complete," said the school's principal. He added that the staffer has been working for the school for over 25 years and was to retire next year.
Following the complaint, several parents approached the school on Monday. They demanded strict action against the staff member and asked the school authority to ensure that security is beefed up in the school, said a parent
Virendra Mishra, deputy commissioner of police (zone 3) confirmed the arrest.
Abderrahmane Bettahar was raised in a culture of violence that calls for the beating of disobedient women. The Qur’an says: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” (Qur’an 4:34)
And in a hadith, Aisha, Muhammad’s child bride, says that Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” (Sahih Muslim 2127)
A 22-year-old woman who died last month at the hands of her ex-boyfriend was stabbed 40 times and had her throat slit before being shot twice as she tried to escape her attacker, police say.
Because there will be no trial and the case is considered closed, Calgary police released details of El-Dib’s last moments Wednesday at the request of her family.
Police say they believe Bettahar and El-Dib left a downtown shisha bar together at around 3 a.m. on March 25. Despite having dated in late 2017, the two weren’t in a relationship at the time, police say.
Around 4 a.m., El-Dib contacted a friend to tell them Bettahar was refusing to take her back to her car.
Police say that fifteen minutes later, he parked behind a house in the 1000 block of Maitland Drive N.E., where Bettahar repeatedly stabbed El-Dib.
Bettahar followed and shot her twice with a semi-automatic rifle that police say he purchased legally two weeks before the attack.
Evidence showed El-Dib was on the ground when Bettahar fired the second shot.
El-Dib’s body wasn’t found until 9:30 a.m., despite several witnesses reporting hearing gunshots.
Her sister, Racha El-Dib, called Bettahar “a disturbed young man, who believed he had the right to murder her because she exercised her right of taking ownership of her life, body and soul, by saying no to a man who was persistent on being with her.”…
Neither the CBC, nor any other mainstream media in Canada would even mention the fact that Bettahar was Muslim. His parents were born in Algeria. It is certainly possible that being Muslim had little to do with the murder; perhaps just an insanely jealous boyfriend.
Was he a practicing Muslim? Actually, his Facebook page is still active although the last entry, not surprisingly, was made on March 23rd. He posted many memes in Arabic, which I cannot read not can translate, but there is a post made on 11 March which states:
محمد رمضان محمد to ياحبيبي يارسول الله [صدقة جارية ]
11 March 2016 ·
Where are the lovers of the holy Quran
Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar
So, I think we can assume he was a practicing Muslim, possibly even devout. One characteristic which I suspect may be common among devout Muslim men is that tendency to be deeply insulted when refused by a woman/girl. This, of course, can be true of any unstable, emotional person, not just Muslims.
In 2011, the remarkably beautiful Maple Batalia was murdered in Vancouver at just 19 because she wanted to break up with her unfaithful boyfriend. He, apparently, felt he had a right to have sex with anyone he wanted, and she had no right to complain. Sounds like a Muslim, but while it's about impossible to determine for sure, he was in all likelihood a Hindu. His name is Gurjinder Dhaliwal and he is serving life in prison. His partner who aided him is already out of prison, a free man.
This brings us to yesterday's massacre on a Toronto street. The culprit, Alek Minassian, is suspected of having Aspergers, and there are no indications that he was involved in any form of religion. What he was involved in was a bizarre internet group called Incel Rebellion which is a hate group for women.
Incel means 'Involuntary Celebate', and consists of men who are so pathetic they can't find anyone to have sex with. Imagine that in this day and age. Consequently, they blame women for their failures and slag on them constantly. The group was started by, or at least was first noticed by the public after Elliot Rodger’s deadly shooting in California. Rodger’s attack left six people dead and a dozen more injured in 2014. In a series of Youtube videos, one recorded just moments before the attack, Rodger blamed his actions on women who refused to notice him.
Pathetic members of the group are now calling both Rogers and Minassian saints.
So the point is, the #MeToo movement still has a long way to go to break through cultural attitudes not just in Islam and Indian men.
