Boston Jihadist Brother's : " Shot In The Back, Three Times, While On Phone "

An Islamic "Hands Up!" attempt has been made by Islamic Jihadist Usaama Rahim’s brother who posted on social media that his brother was:

1.  Shot in the back
2.  While on the phone
3.  Three Shots

Law enforcement took the extraordinary step of meeting with community leaders to show them surveillance video disproving this claim. 

The fear was that another "Hands Up" lie will circulate and cause more rioting, this time, with Boston as the target. 

This as reports circulate that ISIS has called for the beheading of an American police officer, and Rahim may have been planning this very thing.  

Please note that some of the major networks are calling this an "extremest" attack, while omitting "Islamic", "Jihad", "Koran" or "Muslim" from its report. 

"War is deceit", Mohammad.

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for three men charged with murder in the 2011 disappearance and slaying of Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo if they are convicted at trial.

Special prosecutor Jennifer Nichols acknowledged in Decatur County court Wednesday that notices to seek death had been filed.

'The murder was especially heinous, atrocious or cruel in that it involved torture or serious physical abuse beyond that necessary to produce death,' the filings say.

An indictment handed down in May charges Jason Autry, Zachary Adams and his brother John Dylan Adams with premeditated murder as well as murder in the perpetration of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape of Holly Bobo.

The indictment replaced previous murder and kidnapping charges for Autry and Zachary Adams, and rape charges for John Dylan Adams.

Charges against the men are now combined into one case under a single indictment.

All three men pleaded not guilty Wednesday.

Bobo was 20 when she was reported missing from her home in Parsons in rural West Tennessee in April 2011.

Her disappearance and the subsequent lengthy search attracted national attention.

Authorities say her skull was found in the woods in Decatur County in September, more than three years after he disappearance.

Two men searching for ginseng came across the remains, which were identified using dental records.

Matt Maddox, attorney for John Dylan Adams, said he was surprised at the timing of the filings to seek the death penalty, but he added that he preferred receiving the notices 'sooner rather than later.'

Nichols said the filings were made at the earliest opportunity after the new indictment was issued.

Judge C. Creed McGinley said the decision affects the pace of the case as it moves toward a trial.

'I'm not going to be able to move at breakneck speed as I had hoped,' McGinley said.

Don Franks, a local pastor who acts as a spokesman for the Bobo family, said Wednesday 'was a giant step on the road to justice for Holly.'

Defense attorneys have complained that they have not received evidence against their clients from prosecutors.

McGinley stated in court that prosecutors will give the evidence to the defense within 30 days.

Comedian Bill Cosby, who has been hit with dozens of sexual abuse allegations, is seeking to block the release of material linked to a confidential settlement in a 2006 sex-assault lawsuit.

Cosby has been accused by more than 30 women of sexual misconduct, including allegations by many that he drugged and raped them in incidents dating back more than four decades.

Cosby, 77, has never been criminally charged, and most of the accusations are barred by statutes of limitations.

Now Cosby's lawyers have moved to block a subpoena sent to a lawyer for the Philadelphia accuser by three women now suing Cosby for defamation in Massachusetts.

Tamara Green, Therese Serignese and Linda Traitz all accuse Cosby of defaming them by having his agents deny their claims that the actor had molested them in the 1970s.

The lawsuit hinges on recent denials of sex abuse allegations by Cosby's representatives.

In January 2004, Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, accused Cosby of drugging and fondling her but in February 2005, Montgomery County's District Attorney said there would be no charges due to 'insufficient credible and admissible evidence'.

Ms Constand filed a civil claim in March 2005 with thirteen women as potential witnesses if the case went to court and Cosby settled out of court for an undisclosed amount in November 2006.

Cosby's lawyers argued on Tuesday that court confidentiality agreements 'should not be set aside lightly.'

Defense lawyer George M. Gowen asked the Pennsylvania court to wait until a judge rules on Cosby's bid to throw out the Massachusetts case.

He also asked for the right to review and challenge any material set to be unsealed.

The motion was filed in federal court in Philadelphia.

Model Janice Dickinson has also sued Bill Cosby for defamation on claims her reputation was tarnished when the comedian called her claims he drugged and raped her in 1982 'fabricated lies.'

'I was drugged and raped by Bill Cosby,' Dickinson told ET last month. 'And the fact that he and his spokespeople have called me a liar – referring to remarks that I've made – it's just not correct.'

Dickinson has dated-looking photographs of a robe-wearing Cosby she says she took in the hotel room where she claims he sexually assaulted her in Lake Tahoe.

Late last year, Dickinson broke down in tears in a live television interview accusing Cosby of using the offer of career advancement to lure her to a hotel room where he drugged her and raped her while she was unconscious.

Dickinson is one of over 30 women who've come forward with claims of sexual assault against the actor and comedian.

Cosby has staunchly maintained his innocence, and wife Camille issued a statement in December forcefully dismissing allegations against her husband of a half-century.

First off I hope Cosby fries. But in all honesty, I've lost faith in the system.

And what is up with the media...

"Cosby has staunchly maintained his innocence, and wife Camille issued a statement in December forcefully dismissing allegations"

He has not stated he is innocent.
She did not dismiss the allegations but rather tried to highlight his other qualities.

The media is making justice even more difficult. If you will print lies as fact then you are failing us all.

I hope Holly's murderers get convicted and get the death penalty. For once can justice be served?

Off topic on Hailey Dunn:

"COLORADO CITY – In 2013, Hailey Dunn’s remains were found at Lake J.B. Thomas in Scurry County, an arrest for her murder has yet to be made. Hailey was 14-years-old when she went missing back in 2010 from her home in Colorado City.

Last Saturday, Hailey would have walked the stage and graduated high school.

The search for Hailey may have ended two years ago, but for community members and her friends that wasn’t enough for closure. On Wednesday, they tell CBS 7 they feel that the person who murdered Hailey is getting away with it.

Four years after Hailey Dunn’s disappearance, her childhood home stands rather silent, an almost somber remembrance of what was happening two years ago when the news spread that Hailey’s remains had been found.

“I drove by here the other day in fact, it’s sad. It’s a sad remind of how wrong everything went that day,” said Cat Geiger, a woman who searched day and night for Hailey Dunn.

For years, family, friends and strangers had searched for Hailey who had gone missing three days after Christmas in 2010. The search for Hailey may be over, but the search for justice continues.

“I’ve been waiting for a long time to get this out,” said Hailey’s best friend Heather Ruth “we just hung out all the time, nonstop.”

To this day, Hailey’s sudden disappearance leaves Ruth shocked and hoping for resolution.

“When they found her body, I had closure. But the justice don’t give me closure. Because, whoever hurt her or did what he did to her, I feel like he should deserve more than what she went through,” said Ruth.

Two weeks ago, Hailey’s mom Billie Dunn was called in to meet with Scurry County investigators.

“The case is still very much active, he’s got pictures of Hailey up in his office,” said Dunn.

Dunn says investigators continue processing new evidence, and left the DA’s office with newfound hope.

“I did leave there feeling like I am going to see a conviction, and that it is in grasp now. It’s within reach, it’s not so far off,” said Dunn.

CBS 7 did reach out to investigators in both Mitchell and Scurry County, however our calls were not returned."

We can only hope but I am not holding my breath based on anything Billie Jean says. We have heard this from her before. But I am glad to hear there is still an ongong investigation.

To this monster on the loose, How dare you exist,how dare you live,how dare you sleep & breathe as I lay in my bed screaming & crying my heart out because my daughter won't be walking that stage tonight,you heartless coward!

OT Update:

Expert says charges could be pressed without missing baby’s body

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 3, 2015) — As police suspended searches for a missing baby and focused on “good, old-fashioned detective work,” one expert said an arrest is still possible in the case.

Thursday will mark one week since three-month-old Janna Rivera went missing from her northeast side home. Since then, much of the attention has focused on the baby’s father, who told various people that she died and he disposed of her body.

Despite those admissions, Rivera’s father remains out of jail and has not been charged in the case. Detectives are staying in contact with him.

“Every day it’s more mystifying to me and my neighbors, as to what happened to the baby,” neighbor Tina Whetstone said.

As more days pass, it becomes less and less likely that IMPD investigators will find the baby. The next step will be determining whether they can arrest anyone for her disappearance.

“That’s always hard, when you have a prosecution without a body,” attorney Ralph Staples said.

Staples told CBS4 the case would be hard, but not impossible.

“I’ve never done it personally but I know two pretty good prosecutors who secured convictions in cases where the bodies were never found,” Staples said.

He also pointed to missing baby Delano Wilson. The six-week-old, who vanished last August, was never found. Six months after he disappeared, police arrested his father Willie Wilson for murder. He remains in jail, pending trial.

Wilson’s case came down to surveillance footage that disputed his story, searches of his phone and DNA testing.

“Depending upon locations or where they think things happened, they’ll be looking for videotapes from surveillance cameras and the like and they’ll probably check people’s cell phones to see who’s been moving where and how often they’ve been moving and who they’ve been talking to,” Staples said.

It is work that, at this point, becomes tedious. It’s necessary, though, as many hope for justice in baby Janna’s case.

“They want closure, they want to find their loved one so they can give her a proper burial and we want that too,” IMPD Lt. Richard Riddle said.

“It’s a sad state of affairs but we’re praying. We’re still praying,” Whetstone said.

If you know anything about Janna Rivera’s case, police still hope to gather credible leads to find her. You can call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.

Yes John, I think marbles leaking. Also leaking in her Facebook post. Why she doesn't give Shawn up I'll never understand.

John Mc Gowan said...

Hi GeekRad,

She has learned over time (probably by reading here) that it is wise to, when talking about Hailey, to call her by her name and not "she", "Her" and so on, as we have seen in the past.

However, the mind knows what it knows and leakage will sneak out as i mentioned above.

Justice will come for Hailey. Be it today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year...Time has no restraints. Justice For hailey (JFH)

Why she doesn't give Shawn up I'll never understand.

If she "gives up shawn" then she is throwing herself under the bus.

GeekRad said...

Hi John,
You are correct about Billie learning to call Hailey by name and about not giving Shawn up because it would be throwing herself under the bus. So does she really believe she is going to see a conviction? She has to know she will be implicated if it is Shawn and can't possibly believe that conviction is someone else. The use of the word conviction rather than arrest is interesting. Is that the term the DA used? Anyway, I am not holding my breath waiting for an arrest but it does give some hope.

Why is it some won't believe they are being lied to even when they have been told they are being lied to?

The family of the man killed by investigators in a Roslindale parking lot as he allegedly wielded a knife called on Thursday for a “complete and transparent investigation,” including asking whether officers exceeded their authority in stopping him.

Harvard law professor Ronald S. Sullivan Jr., speaking on behalf of Usaama Rahim’s relatives, said family members had seen no behavior to suggest that the 26-year-old had embraced extremism.

Sullivan said Rahim’s family, who stood in the parking lot where Rahim died, had reached no conclusions about what happened Tuesday and pledged to “enter into a joint relationship with investigators to get to the truth.”

After the Roslindale news conference, family members went to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office, where they viewed surveillance video that captured the fateful encounter between police and Rahim, who is expected to be buried Friday. Emerging at 6:45 p.m., Rahim’s older brother, Imam Ibrahim Rahim, said only, “Boston Strong, God Bless America,” before getting into a waiting vehicle.

In Washington, D.C., US Representative Stephen F. Lynch said Usaama Rahim had been on the FBI’s radar since 2012. Lynch, who has had a series of briefings by federal agencies on the case, said the Joint Terrorism Task Force was brought in earlier this year, though it is unclear what triggered the FBI’s initial involvement or the decision to bring in more resources.

“I’m not sure what red-flagged him, but I think it went back — the FBI was looking at him going back to 2012,” said Lynch, a South Boston Democrat.

Lynch said he did not know whether anything tied Rahim to the extremist Islamic State group other than his frequenting of ISIS-related Internet websites. He said nothing suggested Rahim was being recruited by the terrorist organization.

In postings on a Facebook page linked to him, Rahim wrote angrily about being followed by the FBI in November 2012, and portrayed himself as unjustly targeted.

Lynch said Rahim was in Saudi Arabia as a high school freshman, and at the time was a follower of the Muslim Brotherhood. Sullivan declined to comment on Rahim’s time in Saudi Arabia.

“The lone wolves and the small cells — they don’t have to cross the border. They don’t have to assimilate. They’re already here,” said US Representative Bill Keating, a South Coast and Cape Cod Democrat who is on the House Committee on Homeland Security. “There’s so much attention in Congress on borders. There’s no borders to the Internet, and the call to action and the transmission is so large.”

Keating, who spoke with a top FBI official Wednesday, said he did not know what triggered investigations into Rahim. Asked whether Rahim was being recruited by the Islamic State, he said, “in almost every case, they’re not targeting any individual. This is broad and sweeping.”

At the family’s news conference, Sullivan said reports that suggested Rahim had been radicalized came as “a complete shock.” There was no sign anything was wrong, he said. In the days, weeks, and months before Rahim allegedly brandished a long military knife and lunged at investigators who were watching him around the clock, Rahim seemed to his family to be a typical 26-year-old.

“An energetic young man who was trying to make his way in this world. A very young man,” Sullivan said. “A seemingly normal young man going about the workaday world.”

Beneath that unassuming exterior, authorities say, lurked a dark plan: Rahim had allegedly told his nephew Tuesday morning that he planned to randomly murder police officers, law enforcement officials say.

Tania Cadogan said...

Rahim’s aunt, who was the only family member to speak and who did not fully identify herself, said she did not think her nephew would have been labeled a potential terrorist if he was not Muslim. Rahim simply felt “threatened,” she said, when task force members approached him.

“As you all know, with the current slaughter of black men going on right now across the nation, that’s enough to make any and all black men feel threatened,” she said, referring to a series of police shootings across the country. She suggested that Rahim was only carrying the approximately footlong knife to protect himself against “a general threat.”

Sullivan, who spoke for the family as a whole, said it was waiting for more evidence to be revealed “in order to form a reasoned and informed opinion.” He commended the district attorney’s office on its willingness to share the surveillance video with the family.

“What the family wants to do is enter into a joint relationship with investigators to get to the truth,” he said. “The facts will lead us where the facts lead us.”

But Sullivan said the family questioned why investigators had approached Rahim in the first place when officers did not have a warrant.

Sullivan also said Ibrahim Rahim, Rahim’s older brother, regretted a post he made on Facebook shortly after the shooting that said Usaama Rahim had been shot in the back. Authorities have said the surveillance video shows that Rahim was shot from the front, and community leaders and clergy who reviewed the video Wednesday confirmed that.

Sullivan said the older brother had received inaccurate information from a third party and made the posting. “These were the responses of a man whose youngest brother was just killed,” he said.

Before the news conference, Ibrahim Rahim issued a statement calling “upon the local and national Muslim communities to remain calm and to offer their prayers’’ for his brother. “My family loves the City of Boston where I was raised. God Bless us all.”

Earlier in the news conference, a Muslim community leader said law enforcement officers should have captured, rather than fatally shot Rahim.

“They are the professionals. They are professional people who apprehend people all the time. . . . They know what to do. If they want to take him down without killing him, they know what to do,” said Imam Abdullah Faaruuq, of the Mosque for the Praising of Allah in Boston.

He said the law enforcement operation was “poorly constructed,” “ill-conceived,” and “reckless.”

Law enforcement officials declined to comment directly on the remarks made at the news conference.

“Out of respect to the grieving family, we will withhold comment as they prepare to bury their loved one,” said Boston police Superintendent in Chief William G. Gross.

A spokesman for Conley said the Suffolk district attorney’s office has “a national reputation for transparency in our investigations,” and that the Rahim case would be no different.

Tania Cadogan said...

An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

Rahim’s nephew, 25-year-old David Wright, of Everett, is also facing federal charges in the incident for allegedly encouraging his uncle to destroy evidence. He is being held without bail.

Law enforcement officials have reported that the original target of the alleged terror plot was political activist Pamela Geller, who has drawn national attention for her criticism of radical Muslims. Two men opened fire last month at an event she hosted in Garland, Texas, where she had invited people to present cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. Law enforcement officers shot and killed both men.

At the scene of the shooting Thursday, someone had placed a note, signed only “brother,” on a blue pillow tied with a glittery ribbon. “These are the people that are suppose to ‘help us’. They do nothing but HURT US!” the note said. “They go to other parts of the world and start war then want us to teach our kids that the other people are the enemy.”

Tuesday’s fatal encounter left members of Boston’s Muslim community reeling, and some said they feared the public would judge all Muslims based on Rahim’s alleged actions.

“I get looks. I get people looking at me wrong,” 24-year-old Twila Muhammad said outside the Mosque for the Praising of Allah, where Rahim had ties. “And I go, listen, I’m a citizen too, I’m an American citizen. I’m in fear of my life just like you.”

She became emotional.

“I want peace,” she said. “It’s like this stereotype — they see that, then they look at the Muslim, and think that’s what we’re about, and it’s totally the opposite. I just want everyone to get along.”
