While some might say our nation goes overboard with how we do our security, the truth of the matter is, we live in a dangerous time, and after having multiple shootings carried out by terrorists on our own soil, you can never take a threat too lightly.
This is a lesson a Muslim man from the Grand Forks area learned the hard way after getting himself arrested for calling 911 a whopping 47 times, with most of the discussion featuring various rants on President Donald Trump.
However, that’s not what got him slapped in cuffs.
No, it was his comments about ISIS that landed him in hot water.
The Grand Forks Herald is reporting:
Mohamed Aweis Mohamed, 30, was booked Thursday into the Grand Forks County Correctional Center after 911 dispatchers said they received 47 calls from him in less than a week in early February.
On Feb. 3, dispatchers said the suspect called 44 times to express his displeasure with President Donald Trump, according to court documents.
A Grand Forks Police officer who eventually met with Mohamed checked the suspect’s phone log after he voluntarily showed it to the officer, according to court documents. That officer said the phone showed a log of emergency calls.
Court documents detail conversations between Mohamed and dispatchers, including his claims that Trump fueled “morale” of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. Mohamed reportedly said he felt he had no freedom in the U.S. and that he wanted to go “home” or to Canada. He also allegedly said he supported ISIS and “dislikes” women.
During the meeting with the officer, Mohamed cited drinking for the calls the complaint described as “rants about U.S. President Trump.”
The harassment charge is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $3,000 fine. He has an initial appearance scheduled for March 29.
Mohamed faces two other harassment charges in separate but similar February cases. In one case, 911 dispatchers said he called more than 10 times and yelled at them. In the other case, he allegedly told dispatchers he needed an ambulance but later admitted he only wanted a taxi, according to a criminal complaint. 911 records show he called 15 times, prompting emergency responders from Altru, the Grand Forks Fire Department and Grand Forks Police Department to respond.
So either this guy is a terrorist sympathizer or he likes to hit the bottle just a little too hard.
Or he’s a nut.
