No more Talk, It’s time for Action.
Tuesday An American woman died after suffering fatal injuries supposedly during an altercation (according to witnesses) that took place on Monday afternoon inside the ladies public bathroom of a shopping mall on Reem Island in Abu Dhabi. The injured woman was immediately rushed to Sheikh Khalifa Medical City where she succumbed to the wounds she sustained in the attack.
Investigations are still underway to identify the suspect’s identity and gender. Witnesses reported that the culprit was fully covered wearing an abaya, black gloves and face cover (Niqab).
According to Colonel Dr. Rashid Mohammad Borshid, Head of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at Abu Dhabi Police, the victim, only identified as A. B. R, 37, worked as a school teacher, was stabbed with a sharp tool, which was later confiscated by the police. The cause of the fight that broke out in the women’s restroom remains unknown and the suspect fled the scene immediately after committing the crime. He added, “The police are investigating to uncover the crime’s causes and motives and to arrest the culprit.”
Colonel Dr. Borshid also revealed that the Community Police began taking care of the victim’s 11-year-old twins, “The Community Police will be providing the children with shelter and other needs pending the arrival of their father (the victim’s ex-husband) from abroad. The father will be received by the Community Police, who will also cater to the needs of the victim’s family,” he said.
Colonel Dr. Rashid Mohammad Borshid condemned the hideous crime and expressed his profound regret for such an objectionable phenomenon that is alien to the Emirati society and its deep-rooted traditions. “The Abu Dhabi Police will spare no effort in order to unveil this heinous crime and bring the culprit to justice,” he stressed.

http://www.democracynow.org – Civil rights groups are calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman after he was acquitted in the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida. A petition launched by the NAACP gathered more than 225,000 signatures in the first few hours after Zimmerman was acquitted, temporarily causing the group’s website to crash. The Justice Department responded Sunday that it is continuing to evaluate evidence from an ongoing federal probe, as well as evidence from the state trial. We speak to the Rev. Jesse Jackson of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and Philip Agnew, executive director of Dream Defenders, a coalition of young people of color in Florida formed after Martin’s death. They have called for a “Takeover Tuesday” protest in Florida’s capital of Tallahassee on July 16. “I think we need to look at the environment that created a situation that grew a George Zimmerman and snuffed out a Trayvon Martin,” Agnew says. “The fact is, our society programs people to be afraid of young people — young people of color specifically.”
