The department is not explaining why. Could it have something to do with the Mohamed Noor guilty verdict in the Justine Damond murder case? The reality is that Noor should never have been a police officer, and only was because he was Muslim. On the force since 2015, he had three complaints. against him. He was described by neighbors as “jumpy,” “ill-tempered,” “strict” and “disrespectful of women and blacks.” Hijab-wearing Mayor Betsy Hodges instituted hiring policies in the police department to prioritize the hiring of Somali Muslims. This at a time when more than 22 young men from the community had left the state to join al-Shabab in Somalia, and roughly a dozen people have left in recent years to join the jihad in Syria, including the Islamic State group. The area in Minneapolis where Muslim killer-cop was recruited and fast-tracked for police work is a notorious hot spot for jihad recruitment.
Boston PD’s First Muslim Captain, Highest Paid City Employee, Put On Administrative Leave
By Daniel Greenfield, May 7, 2019:
The Minneapolis police are still reeling from the fallout after Mohamed Noor, the first Muslim Somali police officer on the force, shot and killed a woman who had called the police to report a possible rape.
Now the Boston cops appear to be dealing with their own ‘first’ fallout.
The first Muslim promoted to the rank of captain in the Boston Police Department was placed on administrative leave Monday — and the department is not explaining why.
Captain Haseeb Hosein has been the commander of the Area B-3 station that covers Mattapan and parts of Dorchester since 2014. … Hosein was promoted by former commissioner William B. Evans.
“This promotion speaks to the promise both Mayor Walsh and Commissioner Evans made to diversify the BPD’s Command Staff . . . We wish Haseeb . . . nothing but the best of success in his new position!”
It’s always about the diversity. Never about the competence.
Sergeant Detective John Boyle, the department’s chief spokesman, confirmed that Hosein was placed on administrative leave with pay Monday. He said Hosein is under investigation by the department’s Internal Affairs Unit.
The Globe reported in February that Hosein was the city’s highest paid employee, earning $366,232 in 2018. That total included $106,980 in detail pay, $62,696 in overtime pay, and regular pay of $146,893.
It’s odd that someone who was promoted not all that long ago was the highest paid employee in Boston.
According to a more recent report, he made almost $400,000.
It might be curious if the two were connected. Boston cops and the union are stonewalling questions about the Hosein investigation. That can provide cover for political pressure to be applied behind the scenes on the investigators looking into the diversity hire.
Hossein’s profile appears on “Boston stands with immigrants” where he claims that, “As an immigrant I am a living example of the greatness of this country.”
On his Twitter account, he tweets a story about the, “First Muslim police Captain in Boston working to educate people about his religion and unite community”.
