Portland’s First Somali Police Officer Arrested at MA Concert

1/16/18, Maine First Media Staff Report,

What a difference a year makes!

This time last year, open-border Leftists were celebrating the swearing in of the first Somali refugee police officer.

In fact, Fake News outlet, the Portland Press Herald, championed the moment as “history-making!”

Fast forward one year and that same “history-making” Somali police officer isn’t arresting criminals — but instead, being arrested.

Zahar Munye Abu was arrested last Saturday in Worcester, MA.

The arrest took place at a Ja Rule and Ashanti concert at the Palladium Nightclub in Worcester.

The refugee police officer, Abu, was charged with five misdemeanors including assault, battery, trespassing, disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct.

But Abu’s rap sheet doesn’t end there.

The cop is also charged with resisting arrest.

As a police officer, she should know and understand the dangers to all parties involved when a suspect resists arrest.

Worcester Police Sgt. Kerry F. Hazelhurst expects Abu to be arraigned later this week.

Interestingly, Abu’s brother, Ilyas Munye Abu, is a police officer in Worcester.

PPH is reporting Abu was provided several opportunities to leave the concert without incident, but refused.

However, it was just last January PPH ran a puff piece trumpeting the virtues of hiring a diverse police force and calling Abu a “role model.”

The 2017 Maine Criminal Justice Academy class included three graduates speaking English as a second language.

Abu was born in a Kenyan refugee camp and migrated to Portland when she was four. She graduated from the University of Southern Maine earning a degree in women-and-gender studies as well as criminal justice.

PPH’s original puff-piece on Abu ended by quoting Fatuma Hussein, Executive Director of United Somali Women of Maine saying, “She (Abu) has made history. Nobody can take that away.”

It now appears Zahar Munye Abu is making a different kind of history — and no one can take that away.
