CATHOLIC Iraqi refugee attacked, beaten in NM by man who thought she was Muslim

An Albuquerque woman was attacked in her home and her family’s U.S. citizenship papers were torn up by a man who incorrectly believed that she was Muslim.

Albuquerque’s KRQE Channel 13 reported that, ironically, the woman and her family are Catholic Iraqis who fled that country six years ago to escape religious persecution. They told KRQE that they never expected this to happen to them in their adopted homeland.

Around midday last week, Seham Jaber was home alone when the doorbell rang. Thinking it was her husband, she opened the door without looking, only to be attacked by a man wearing a mask and gloves. The man punched her face and body and shouted anti-Muslim epithets, she said.

“The irony is the individual thought the family was Muslim, and they’re actually refugees from Iraq who are Catholic,” said the Albuquerque Police Department’s Simon Drobik.

The attacker demanded to know where the family kept its “money and gold.” He then ransacked the house, taking money and jewelry. When he found the family’s U.S. citizenship papers in a back room, he destroyed them in front of Jaber.

Jaber’s husband found her semi-conscious on the apartment floor with injuries to her face, head, chest and abdomen.

PA mother of seven dies while serving two-day jail term for kids’ truancy violations

State officials want to know how and why a Pennsylvania woman died while serving a two-day jail term related to her children’s truancy.

Eileen Dinino, a 55-year-old mother of seven, died Saturday at the Berks County Jail in Bern Township, about halfway through the 48-hour sentence she was ordered to serve after her children racked up multiple truancy violations.

A jail staff member found Dinino unresponsive in her bunk while performing blood pressure exams on inmates.

An autopsy has been completed, and no foul play is suspected, but the coroner is awaiting toxicology results before determining a cause of death,
Some legislators are asking why Dinino was jailed.

“I cannot understand how someone ends up going to jail,” said state Sen. Judy Schwank (D-Berks County). “They did not murder someone, they did not steal, they did not commit a felony. How does jail time equate to resolving this particular problem?”

Authorities had filed 55 violations against Dinino after her children missed numerous class days in both Reading and Muhlenberg Township.

Those violations each carry a possible five-day jail term under state law.

“That unfortunately is part of the law in Pennsylvania, and I think it is insanity,” said Christian Leinbach, a Republican Berks County commissioner. “There has got to be a better way to deal with truancy than putting somebody in prison.”

Schwank suggested community service or a fine payment plan as more suitable punishments, and Leinbach urged lawmakers to take action.

“I think there are better ways to deal with nonviolent crimes,” Leinbach said. “I am not even sure, quite frankly, that things like truancy and parking should be criminal offenses, and frankly support legislation that would decriminalize those offenses.”

Personal Thought:

The problem with ‘fine payment plans’ is the poor people don’t have the money to pay the fines AND/OR the interest, will no doubt end up going to jail.

The city/county/state needs the Revenue, and more poor people will die.

The seven kids had truancy problems BEFORE their mothers death, and now?
