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.


    • Didn’t integrate well. Real roll model and use this role model to not let it happen again. Stop the PC crap. Islam is not peaceful , no way , shape or form.

  • This is not one bit surprising except to the politically correct enablers of Sharia on the Left. Time and time again we’re told by the PPH & BDN, among others, that Muslim refugees add to the diversity of our culture, Maine’s elderly population is in need of replacement worker-bees or that Islam is a religion of peace. Abu’s wearing of the hijab is NOT an expression of modesty, but means she is Sharia-compliant. Sharia does not recognize man-made laws such as our U.S. Constitution. All laws are subordinate to Sharia law. She may take an oath to uphold our Maine laws, but that is a principle known as “taqiyya” (deception).

    I can almost guarantee that NONE of these so-called journalists and apologists for Islam have ever studied its doctrine or know anything about the barbaric ProMo’s Sunna (his biography and traditions). I’m sure they are also unaware that he commanded his followers to emigrate in order to proselytize for Islam (“hijra”), not to assimilate into the host country. Islamic migration is a form of stealth jihad.

  • “She was asked to leave several dozen times and has been charged with five misdemeanor charges, including assault and battery, resisting arrest, trespassing, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.” Of course, now she’s claiming she was racially profiled. Exactly, what “race” is Islam anyway?

  • Third world, non -citizen, refugees should never be in public positions of authority when they have not assimilated into the culture. They do not acknowledge our laws.
