The Ibrahim Ali murder trial
Drea Humphrey from Rebel News is covering the Marrisa Shen murder trial. I wasn't going to comment on it until it was over but since Drea is covering it, I will say something about it now.
Obviously publication bans are in effect. This isn't the kind of case I normally cover. It's horrible. It's not the kind of case I'd like to be on the jury for because listening to all those horrific details is traumatic. The court will hear an atrocity. Once the jury hears the evidence Drea will report on what isn't covered by a publication ban. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Everyone deserves a fair trial. However, the evidence the jury will hear is indeed disturbing.
Whatever we do, we're going to be wrongfully accused of racism. Marrisa Shen was a 13 year old Asian girl. This wasn't a hate crime against Asians specifically. It was just an isolated deplorable act. Every culture and every race has criminals. Clifford Olson was white and he was an absolute deviant. If one Syrian refugee commits a crime, all the other refugees are not responsible for that crime. We are all responsible for what we do. We are not responsible for what other people do.
The disturbing reality of this case reinstills the need to do criminal record checks on all refugees and all applications for citizenship. It is not surprising to find that some criminals might try to come to Canada. We welcome immigration. We also support law and order. Murdering children is not acceptable in any civilized society. Evidently the suspect speaks Kurdish. My Syrian neighbours speak Arabic. That means he's from Northern Syria. The CIA backed rebels who oppose Assad.
