CLEVELAND A federal trial involving more than two dozen defendants accused in a sex trafficking ring run by Somali MUSLIM gangs is being complicated by cultural issues within the Somali MUSLIM refugee communities in Minnesota and Tennessee. Defense attorneys argued that the defendants, many of whom are refugees from Somalia, were juveniles at the time the alleged crimes occurred.
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. (Of course not, when it’s about Muslims, mum’s the word)
The indictment, which was originally unsealed in 2010 and amended by a superseding indictment in 2011, says the defendants, many of them from the Somali MUSLIM immigrant communities in Minneapolis and Nashville, were members or associates of the three gangs. Four unidentified victims, some of who were under the age of 14, are listed in the indictment.
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 of the individuals have remained in federal custody since their arrests in 2010.
Smith has been working with Jane Doe #2 in the case and said testifying against other Somali MUSLIMS will be very difficult for the victim, but she wants to have her voice heard. ”In the case of Jane Doe #2, she, as a minor, would typically be in a closed court, but she wants to have her story known and she wants to speak in public,” Smith said.
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. (No, it is because Muslims lie. Period)
Courts in Minnesota, the state with the largest Somali MUSLIM population in the U.S., have seen similar issues in cases where defendants or victims are Somali MUSLIMS.
“When you are dealing with an
insular inbred community, especially whose native language is not English, people are going to worry about the ramifications of testifying in court against community members,” Scott said. “The Somali MUSLIM community is a very insular community in Minnesota — everybody knows everybody (and most everybody is married to their own family members)
obummer will get them off.
The somali muslims are treated worse than slaves in Saudi Arabia, but UNHCR & The bleeding hearts in the western world allow these lepors of the muslim world to be given refugee status, so that these toxic muslim dogs can wage war on the host society. Let them languish in the shithole where they belong
Only problem is the one we now have as President and his DOJ.(both the executive and DOJ seem to encourage such activity a means to maintain POWER. SO long as they ain't kidnapping and raping and selling into prostitution little black children no doubt the Obama Administration or his private army with Muslim brotherhood will find some way to get as many of them safely out of the USA -All they need is to find some "progressive" Judge and we got boatloads of the bleeding heart type who wish to send the message that America will not stoop to their level -and will set them all free to prove we are better than where ever these evil seed came from.How many of these thugs have ties with Calypso Louieee Fare I can say my allah will destroy America . and his foreign nation protected by this administration?
What are these MFer's doing in my country? Get them all out now. Vote in November and vote to get them and the Muslim in the White House out of our country.
The problem is that the election look like they are riged.... Just like Reids being put back in office, The same thing is going to happen in Novenmber.. Then Obama is going to call for martial law and turn his muslim brothers loose on the US so we will be like Arabia. Only muslims and all others will be taken out... That is what the Arabs want and are working to do to the USA..

Who is that fool going against 30 Million. ???????????? Do you all American Patriots get the IDEA of 10% ??????????Thank you and Bless you all.
Why are folks bringing the one into this. This is a travesty and I see twentynine people who, if guilty of this, need to die a gruesome death. My first and only reaction to this is to ask where are these folks and how can I get to them. I must also add that I don't care if they were juveniles when the alleged crimes occurred. If they did this they die!
Thanks for the story. The chinese are doing this also in Las Vegas.
See above comment. I don't care what nationality or race. They need to die.
So what new folks!! We let these heathens into America, thinking they would be fine up standing citizens!!!!?? Think again!! The muslim culture allows adult males to marry 8 year old girls and consumate the marriage!!! Their culture incourages, and condones pediphilia!! Until they will renounce their allegence to the pseudo religion of Islam under oath, and eat a roast pork sandwhich, all muslims should be denied entry to the United Stated!!!
