There is no evidence or witnesses to this alleged ‘hate’ crime, and the ‘victim’ was unable to identify any of the attackers, which is why no further action has been taken.
CAIR Fatoumata Camara claimed that a horde of teenagers on a bus approached her and began yelling racial obscenities such as “dumb, Black bitch.” “They just started attacking me. They started calling me names,” Camara said to CBS New York. “With my stupid hair wrap, which is a hijab.”
At least 12 teens charged at her that night, on and off the bus, claimed Camara, however law enforcement only detained three people. They were eventually released without consequence. Camara claimed her belongings, which included a $500 check, social security card and passport, were all taken. Her clothes were also damaged as a result.
Below is the surveillance video:
Camara tells CBS New York officials closed the case because she was unable to identify any of the aggressors when shown photos of possible suspects at a police precinct shortly after the ambush.
In a phone call with a CAIR-NY representative, the head of the Hate Crimes Task Force, Deputy Inspector Mark Molinari reportedly admitted that the attack on Fatoumata Camara “might have been a hate crime,” but that the investigation is not being pursued by his unit because the Bronx District Attorney will not prosecute when the victim cannot identify even one of her alleged attackers. Camara said an NYPD official told her earlier that the case had been closed due to lack of evidence.
Says CAIR, “Ms. Camara has suffered twice — once by the hate crime, and again, by the NYPD’s continued refusal to adequately investigate the brutal attack and the Bronx District Attorney’s apparent disinterest in prosecuting the matter. A victim’s inability to identify her attackers while under the shock of trauma is not a reason for the Hate Crimes Task Force and the Bronx District Attorney’s office to reject a hate crimes probe.
It begs the question, if Ms. Camara was anyone other than a black Muslim woman, would a more thorough investigation be delivered?” (Probably, because so many Muslims have been caught perpetrating hate hoaxes before)
Notice the big crowd of a about a dozen people at this CAIR demonstration.
Hey, CAIR, religious Jews get harassed and roughed up by Muslims all the time for wearing a kippah (skullcap), but they aren’t whining about it all over Twitter.
