As the Muslim victimhood industry kicks into high gear, it gets more and more absurd. Usaamah Rahim plotted to murder me and ended up trying to murder a police officer in Boston. Despite the overwhelming evidence of this, and the fact that two of his accomplices have been convicted and are in prison, his family is playing the victim. Nor is this anything new. Here is video of the Rahim family’s press conference back in 2015, where they were already playing the victim. At that press conference we learned, among other things, that the “Rambo” movies, not Islam, make jihadis. But the mainstream media has already shown that it will swallow anything the Islamic dissemblers say, no matter how farfetched, so why not?
“Suspect’s estate sues government over fatal shooting,” Associated Press, June 3, 2018:
The estate of a Boston man who was shot to death by a city police detective and an FBI agent in 2015 during a terrorism investigation is suing the federal government for $5 million on wrongful death allegations.
Usaamah Rahim and two other men were accused of participating in a plot to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller, who angered Muslims by organizing a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, in 2015. The plot was not carried out.
Authorities said officers shot the 26-year-old Rahim when he lunged at them with a knife in Boston. At the time, an anti-terrorism task force was surveilling Rahim around the clock because authorities had learned of the beheading plot.
Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley concluded the officers were justified in shooting Rahim.
The Boston Globe reported Rahim’s estate filed the lawsuit in federal court in Boston on Thursday. It alleges law enforcement officers “unlawfully seized, assaulted and killed” Rahim, and accuses officials of acting “negligently and recklessly in their use of excessive force, and deadly force.”
The lawsuit also says no fingerprints were recovered from the knife and there were inconsistent accounts by officials about how Rahim pulled the knife….
Authorities said Rahim’s nephew, David Daoud Wright, and Nicholas Rovinski also were in on the plot against Geller. Wright is serving a 28-year prison sentence for conspiring to kill Americans on behalf of the Islamic State, and Rovinski is serving 15 years behind bars for plotting to commit acts of terrorism.
During the 2015 cartoon contest, two other men opened fire outside and wounded a security guard before they were killed in a shootout with law enforcement assigned to guard the event.
