A Somali woman was the victim of a vicious attack when she came to the defense of a Muslim woman being harassed by a white man last Saturday night. According to the Columbus chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations, Rahma Warsame was beaten unconscious by the man who yelled, “You will all be shipped back to Africa,” before brutally assaulting her. According to the campaign that launched her support, she suffered from four missing teeth, a badly swollen face, busted lips and a swollen nose.
According to the CAIR- Columbus, the attacker was interviewed by police but released without charges. At a press conference on Sunday, they denounced it as a hate crime and demand an investigation by the Columbus Police Department.
Jennifer Nimer, executive director of CAIR- Columbus and one of the attorneys for Warsame, spoke on the the incident as well a racial based crimes, “The fact that the perpetrator was not taken into custody and was not charged raises serious concerns and sends a very dangerous message. After what happened last week in Portland, police across the country should be sending a strong message that hate crimes will not be tolerated. We are asking law enforcement to investigate this as a hate crime and to bring the perpetrator to justice immediately before he commits another act of violence.”
This is Trump’s Amerikkka. Hopefully Warsame gets the justice she deserves.
