Maryland Attorney General Office Complaint - Liberian Sex Monster
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND -- Justice has received another black eye, this time from the Maryland Judiciary. A man charged with raping a 7 year old girl and molesting her over a three year period, was freed when the charges against him were dropped.
The charges were dropped because they were supposedly unable to find an interpreter who spoke the suspect's native tongue, as he was from Liberia. Shame on the idiots who made this determination, and also shame on the Liberian Embassy which refused to assist, claiming they could not force anyone to act as an interpreter. So far this all sounds quite reasonable, doesn't it? The thing that makes this whole situation intolerable is that the suspect attended High School and College in the United States, and speaks English fluently. For Pete's sake, he discussed the case with detectives in excellent English!
To claim that the man needed an interpreter to defend himself agaisnt the charges or that he was unable to understand English sufficiently to assist is his defense is balderdash! To see a Child Molester and Rapist walk free because of a phony baloney reason like this galls me. I agree that a person should be considered innocent until and unless proved guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, to use ridiculous concepts to twist our judicial system to escape punishment for one's patently criminal activities is unacceptable. I am not usually one to wish ill on anyone, but in this case, this person should become the victim of an 'accident.' Possibly a hit and run accident as he crosses a street. The Maryland Attorney General should join Mike Nifong in the Judicial Hall of Shame.
