Zahra Munye Abu (below), celebrated all over the media as the first Somali Muslim female ‘diversity’ hire by the Portland, Maine Police Department, has been arrested and charged with five counts, including assault and battery.
If you recall, it was only this past summer that another first-time ‘diversity’ hire of a Somali Muslim police recruit in Minneapolis, also celebrated all over the media, backfired, after the officer, Mohamed Noor, fired his gun into the stomach of an innocent, unarmed woman, for no apparent reason, killing her instantly.
Press Herald (h/t kafir) A 24-year-old Portland police officer has been charged with five misdemeanors, including assault and battery, after being arrested Saturday night at a concert venue in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Worcester police said Zahra Munye Abu, of Portland, is also facing charges of trespassing, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.
Abu caused a disturbance while attending a Ja Rule and Ashanti concert at the Palladium Nightclub on Main Street, said Worcester police Sgt. Kerry F. Hazelhurst.
“The nightclub was hosting several live musical acts,” Hazelhurst said in an email. “She was (given) several opportunities to leave and refused. Eventually she was placed under arrest.”
Worcester police would not provide more details about the incident, and members of Abu’s family declined to comment when contacted by phone at their home.
Chris Besaw, the Palladium general manager, declined to comment about the arrest or what occurred before local police became involved. Abu was bailed out of jail at 1 a.m. Sunday, Hazelhurst said. He did not know the bail amount. She is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Worcester District Court.
Abu is a high-profile member of the Portland police force because she is the first member of Maine’s Somali MUSLIM immigrant community to become a police officer in Maine.
If convicted, Abu faces a maximum penalty of up to 2½ years in a county jail on the assault and battery and the resisting arrest charges. Each of the other charges include less severe maximum penalties.
It was just one year ago when this Somali Muslim woman was sworn in at the police department, in an effort sure to please the left. Local news media were all over it, celebrating the appointment as some kind of milestone (video below). Bet you won’t see this update about her arrest all over the news, now.
Portland Police Chief Michael Sauschuck said “There’s no question that we want to be as diverse as our communities, but we will only hire the best, and I do believe she is one of them,” he said.
The police department in Lewiston, Maine which also has a large Somali Muslim community (thanks to Obama’s mass importation program for Somalis), has been recruiting heavily to attract officer candidates from that group, though none has yet been hired. (Maybe they’ll think twice now)
