What kind of a monster could do such a thing? This latest muslim crime defies all logic, and I cringed as I read the horrific details of a Somali muslim man in Buffalo, New York, who tied his ten year old stepson to a chair with duct tape, stuffs his mouth with a sock, and then snuffed out his life by beating him to death with a blunt object:.
- It would be better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he was cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble. Luke 17:2
Ten-year-old Abdifatah Mohamud was running for his life down Sycamore Street at about 5 p.m. Tuesday when a concerned neighbor stopped to try to help.
Seeing the boy's stepfather chasing after him, the neighbor helped the man, Ali Mohamed Mohamud, catch up with the child.
The boy didn't want to go home with Mohamud.
"I told the boy, 'Daddy promises nothing is going to happen,'" the neighbor later told The Buffalo News.
"The boy said to me: 'No, he always says that.'"
Less than six hours later, Abdifatah was dead, brutally beaten, and his stepfather, Ali Mohamed Mohamud, was under arrest.
The boy was tied to a chair with duct tape, a sock stuffed in his mouth, and he was beaten with a stick or blunt object in the basement of their Guilford Street home, near the Broadway Market, authorities said.
The stepfather was angry because the boy, a fifth-grader at the International Preparatory School on Clinton Street, had fallen behind in his homework, law enforcement officials said.
The neighbor, a mother of young children, sobbed as she recalled how she intervened, persuading the boy to go with his stepfather and even driving them back to their house.
"Your daddy says everything will be OK," the neighbor recalled telling the boy, asking that her name not be published. "I may have been the last person to see that little boy alive."
During the short ride home, she said, the stepfather offered repeated assurances that Abdifatah would be fine.
"I told the boy, 'You go home, and if something does happen, you let me know tomorrow morning,'" the neighbor said.
Mohamud, 40, a native of Somalia who has been in the United States for a decade, was charged with second-degree murder. Police investigators were shocked over the viciousness of the beating, according to Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda, who struggled Wednesday to find words to comment on the case.
