In this case, it was the right and some Truther channels that sensationalized the account and blew it out of proportion. I tried to cover this story at the time, but there were very little facts and a lot of speculation, including that the parents of the junior Allahs celebrated the attack. The facts still stand; these were junior Allahs sexually assaulting a 5 year old girl.
The article states that a national activist ‘perceives’ the Allahs are trying to take over Western societies. This is a misleading statement, as we have plenty of video showing the Allahs saying this with their own hairy, barbaric mouths.
Update: Changed the title to better reflect the story, after a second read-through.
From the article on Idaho Statesman: Guilty pleas in sexual abuse of Twin Falls girl are justice ‘long overdue,’ attorney says
TWIN FALLS – Three boys involved in a June assault on a 5-year-old girl at the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls pleaded guilty Tuesday to felonies.
The victim’s family and their lawyer approved the settlements reached in each of the three cases, Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs said in a statement.
“I am pleased that we were able to resolve this case in a way that was approved and agreed to by the victim’s family,” Loebs said. “This continues to be a serious and sad case, but it was resolved properly.”
The incident touched off months of turmoil in Twin Falls after the story was spun into a fake news account that exaggerated or flat-out falsified many of the details, including that a knife was present, the attack was perpetrated by a Syrian gang of adult men, that a rape had occurred and that the attack was celebrated by the perpetrators’ families as city officials orchestrated a cover-up.
In fact, police and prosecutors said, there was no rape, no knife was present, and the incident involved young boys. Officials characterized the incident as a sexual assault and say each say each agency involved followed proper protocol.
After an investigation, two boys ages 14 and 10 were detained and charged. A third boy involved in the incident, age 7, was charged later. The youngest boy is from Iraq and the two older boys, who are brothers, are from Eritrea, an African country. The boys are from refugee families, but its unclear how long they’ve been in the community.
What actually happened during the incident remains unclear because the case was sealed to the public, typical in juvenile cases, especially those involving allegations of sexual misconduct.
Prosecutors said one of the boys touched the girl in the laundry facilities of Fawnbrook, a low-income housing complex in Twin Falls, while another boy recorded the assault on a cellphone video camera.
One boy pleaded guilty to felony exploitation of a child and misdemeanor battery. A second boy pleaded guilty of aiding and abetting felony lewd conduct and aiding and abetting misdemeanor battery. The third boy pleaded guilty to a charge of accessory to the commission of a felony.
From the beginning, refugee opponents accused police of mishandling the investigation. Those claims garnered the attention of national figures on the far right, including Brigitte Gabriel, head of Act for America, who came to Twin Falls to speak about what she perceives as a coordinated Muslim plan to take over Western societies.
But Police Chief Craig Kingsbury said Tuesday his officers handled the case like they do any other report of lewd conduct with a child.
“I’ve always felt that we followed proper protocol and procedure,” Kingsbury said.
