Man Intentionally Rams Missouri Teen With SUV, Kills Him Because He Was A Muslim
A 15-year-old boy died after losing too much blood when his legs were severed in what police believe was an intentional attack because of the victim’s Muslim faith, outside the Somali Center of Kansas City Thursday evening.
[su_center_ad]Abdisamad Sheikh Hussein, who goes by the name “Adam” was getting into a car outside the Somali Center when he was hit by a man driving an SUV at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, WDAF reports.
Adam was rushed into surgery at a local children’s hospital but did not survive.
His family says he was brain-dead and they decided to take him off life support.
“It became pretty clear that this was not an accidental crash, there is a considerable amount of evidence that leads us to believe it was intentional,” Sergeant Bill Mahoney with KCPD said.
Some witnesses reported that the suspect has a history of hating Muslims and he’s gone as far as pointing a gun at them while threatening to kill them because of their religion.
The FBI has opened the case as a Federal Civil Rights investigation and potential Hate Crime violation.
“A month or two ago he came to the Somali mall, two blocks from here. Things got bad, they started arguing and he pulled a gun,” Abdul Mohamed, a man who knows the victim, said.
Megan Brilley said that Adam Hussein is the son of the Somali Center’s leader.
“Our family is very destroyed at what happened. He’s a sweet, loving kid. He doesn’t deserve this,” Khadra Dirir, the victim’s aunt, said. “I’m pretty sure it’s a hate crime from things I’ve been hearing. I hope that someone brings him to justice.”
The suspect was taken to jail although, he did try to leave the scene.
“He tried to leave the scene but couldn’t get anywhere in the vehicle. He bailed out of it, started running eastbound and was apprehended by officers,” Sgt. Mahoney said.
“He can exercise his First Amendment, but him actually come and try to run over kids, that’s just ridiculous. Like who does that?” Khadra Dirir said.
Another teen in the vehicle was not suffer life threatening injuries in the attack.
Friday is a worldwide day of congregational prayer for Muslims and some were out early Friday morning at Admiral Blvd and the Paseo, where the prayer center is located.
The Heartland Muslim Council released a statement overnight which read, in part:
“Kansas City Muslim community is deeply shocked at the hit and run, apparently intentional assault last evening outside a mosque on Admiral Boulevard in Midtown Kansas City. The attack resulted in the death of a teenager and serious injuries to another teenager. Our thoughts and prayers for the victims and their families and friends.”

Hatred spans the political spectrum. It spans the social spectrum. It spans the economical spectrum. It spans the religious spectrum.

Look to the right when that hatred escalates to violence.

Rioting and mowing someone down are two completely different things. People riot out of anger (or strong feelings about sports, pumpkins, and the firing of people that protect pedophiles). People mow down children at their place of worship for the same reason they put bombs in churches…hate.
Spirit of America December 5th, 2014 at 5:42 pm
Death and destruction are death and destruction, some will hate a race, some will hate a religion, some will hate a political philosophy, some will just hate period.
Those that say hate only comes from one set of people are wrong, simply wrong. And that in of itself is hate.

The WHITE RACIST REPUBLICAN TEABAGGERS came into being through hate, – just like the 3rd Reich.
Barbara December 6th, 2014 at 9:32 am
When you have politicians spouting racist remarks on television daily that just gives a green light for all the racists and nuts in the country to express the hatred they feel. Fox News also promotes hatred and racism. They don’t seem to have any other purpose.

Nope, that didn’t make me feel better to just insult for the heck of it, why does it make you feel good to do so?
(btw, calling me a teabagger doesn’t bother me, no more than if you called me a 7 foot giant… I’m neither)

You certainly seem fixated on that word and that concept. I hope someday you realize how MUCH of that hideous and negative thought you brought into your own life.
Spirit of America December 7th, 2014 at 10:39 am
Where as I appreciate your well wish for me, since it was the topic, the wording is apropos.
When I discuss software, I use the word ‘code’ a lot… it is not a fixation, it is appropriate to the topic.
ShelleysLeg December 7th, 2014 at 4:11 pm
The word ‘h*te’ you toss around so casually is NOT apropos of anything except a hideously ugly and destructive emotion that solves nothing.
Comparing an inflammatory word to discussing ‘code’ with software is a strawman argument and not even half clever.
Wallow in it cuz you are drawing the poison in and aren’t even smart enough to know it.
Spirit of America December 7th, 2014 at 5:57 pm
So, you think people kill other people(because of race or religion) cause they love and respect them?
“Wallow in it cuz you are drawing the poison in and aren’t even smart enough to know it.”
Now there was a caring wish on someone… you espouse it shouldn’t be used when it is there yet wish someone to ‘wallow’ in it because they call it out when seen? Seems mayhaps the ‘poison’ has already gotten complete control of you. And for that I pity you. Maybe one day you can let it go…
ShelleysLeg December 9th, 2014 at 11:31 am
I don’t use that word sparky, for the very reason you seem to like it enough to use it in almost every post.
Must be awesome to be so lacking in self awareness!

And yet another who so carelessly bandies about the ‘h’ word as a means of expression.

I hate people that try telling other people how they should use words. And, I’ll bet that you hate the fact that I feel that way. Guess you’re going to have to deal with it. I’ll bet you hate that idea, don’t you?

LOL…..all of it coming BACK at you! I have to laugh when you attempt to confuse truth with your ugly black soul word.

There’s nothing confusing about what I said. It just may be difficult for you to digest it.

You are trying to explain something to idiots that are incapable of understanding.
cezook December 5th, 2014 at 6:24 pm
Yes, and it is evident that you a part of that cycle of violence, judging by your other posts.
Where to you think that cycle should be broken, if not with people like us?
Spirit of America December 5th, 2014 at 8:29 pm
No such thing is ‘evident’, by any stretch of the imagination.
You do not stop the ‘cycle’ by acknowledging only one group’s participation in the problem while bypassing all other groups that are involved. Try stopping a 6 engine train column by knocking out only 1 engine. It’ll just keep on rolling.

If you can show me just one time where I blamed any group, including the black man, for everything, I’ll do just that. If you can’t, I expect the reciprocal.

They are the ones that show blatant disrespect for authority starting with those loudmouths in congress and work your way down the food chain to that idiot in Tennessee that chides the children of the POTUS…No NO they are opff limits but not to this current crop of neonazis
Spirit of America December 6th, 2014 at 6:48 am
Yes they do, can’t argue with you on that.
But take notice, there is a blatant disrespect for authority at all levels and from all angles anymore.
Congress?- by the constitution they are supposed to pass a budget each year, do they? Nahhh, they use cr’s and call it a day(and so many more offenses, from congress down to mayors anymore)
Wealthy?- Nahhh, they use money and power positions to get off of things, he||, they even made up/use an ‘Affluenza’ defence in murder for their kids now…
Poor?- Nahhh, they resist arrest, ruin protests by burning/looting
Journalists?- Nahhh, they repeat stories w/out checking facts, tell what side of the tale that helps their ideology instead of all the facts and let us figure it out…
Law enforcement?- Nahhhh, they don’t police (no pun intended) themselves anywhere near enough to improve their short comings…
What I find amusing is that the very first thing that each and everyone can change, people won’t.. themselves. Some people claim they want a better place, more respect and yet post after post of theirs is nothing but unsolicited insults, vitriolic slings and yet will again cry out how bad the ‘other side’ is. They literally hate the other group while decrying the other group hates them and how wrong that is.
My view is if one want s a better place, wants respect given, wants the hatred to come down, then post like it, post good ideas or explain why a posted idea isn’t a good idea(with out turning the poster into a cinder), give respect in posts, leave the vitriol out of posts.
Why does anyone expect things to improve if no one is improving?

I have no idea what your post means.
What ‘idea’ is in my post, and what ‘excuse’ is in it? I was making a statement about hatred.
ShelleysLeg December 7th, 2014 at 4:05 pm
The very fact that you use and abuse the “H” word means it will haunt you for every time you THINK it, say it, print it, or use it as an ‘excuse’ for posting your vile vitriol.
Just because you think it is the underlying reason for everything does not mean the rest of us do. You are just trying to inflame people.
Spirit of America December 7th, 2014 at 5:51 pm
The first paragraph is a bit weird for me, so I’ll just let it go.
Now, if you can show me where I ever said hate is the underlying reason for everything, or said everyone does, I would greatly appreciate it. I would also appreciate it if you can’t, that you quit attributing thoughts to me that aren’t accurate. It unnecessarily inflames people.
ShelleysLeg December 9th, 2014 at 11:25 am
OMG, you can’t even admit the posts you put up?
YOUR post says it spans the religious, political, social and whatever the hell the ‘economical’ spectrum is supposed to mean.
MIAtheistGal December 5th, 2014 at 5:17 pm
I put the blame squarely on this man and he was goaded to do this by Fox News, the Blaze, and every other tea party hate group. The constant, burning hatred of the ‘other’ has got to end.

I am strongly opposed to the death penalty, but there are days when my convictions are tested.
The racist right-wing piece of “human” garbage who did this deserves the worst imaginable punishment. Life in prison, yes, but as unpleasant as possible.
Spirit of America December 5th, 2014 at 4:07 pm
I’m for the death penalty in certain cases. Say this case is what it seems on the surface:
1. we will never cure this abomination, we just don’t have the skill set.
so either he agrees to medical testing/experimenting w/new drugs that may cure/be a learning guinea pig
In my view, society has a right to protect itself. And he can get out. Legal reasons(been done before), escapes(been done before), weekend waivers(been done before) or even killing other inmates(been done before).
I do not believe it makes sense to pay for his well being just to up his chances of harming society again.
But, this is just my view.

WHO wrote this inexcusable tripe? “Another teen in the vehicle was not suffer life threatening injuries in the attack.”
Run on sentences, poor grammar (even if it is because English isn’t their first language) makes the case that the victim’s family is ‘other’.
You put a comma AFTER “although” instead of before? WTF? I am embarrassed and this reads like an Onion story, rather than the serious reporting of a heinous crime.
