Racist jailed after kicking pregnant Muslim woman in stomach

By INDEPENDENT

A “shabby racist” who kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach, causing her to lose her baby, has been jailed for more than three years.

As Samsam Haji-Ali shouted “I’m pregnant”, David Gallacher continued his sustained attack on her outside a Co-op in Bletchley, Buckinghamshire, Aylesbury Crown Court heard.

The 34-year-old was left bleeding and rolling on the floor after the assault and miscarried her twins several weeks later.

Her husband Abdullah Sulamain, 40, was also left needing stitches after he was hit with a wine bottle during the attack.

After calling him “a thug and a racist to boot” Judge Francis Sheridan sentenced Gallacher to three years and seven months behind bars.

Prosecutor Christopher Wing had earlier told the the court that Ms Haji-Ali was sitting in her car when Gallacher approached her and said: “You come here with your clown outfit on, you f***ing people, you are the f***ing problem in this place”.

When her husband tried to intervene, Gallacher hit him with a wine bottle and a bag of ice, causing a four inch cut which required stitches.

Gallacher then kicked Ms Haji-Ali repeatedly, despite her pleas and also tried to hit her with the wine bottle.

“This lady’s pregnancy was absolutely fine before she attended that shop and the defendant kicked her again in the stomach having been told she was pregnant,” said Judge Sheridan.

“There was a racial element to this attack. The defendant is a shabby racist on the language that he used towards this lady.”

Judge Sheridan added that he believed “the loss of that baby was a direct result of a kick to the stomach of a pregnant woman”.

He said he would leave it to others to decide whether the crown needed medical evidence to prove the link between the attack and the miscarriage, or whether common sense was enough.

School Cop Who Received Oral Sex From A Child Won’t Have To Register As Sex Offender

A Houston Independent School District police officer admitted in court on Wednesday to having an improper relationship with a 14-year-old student while employed at Cullen Middle School in 2015. Jacob Ryan Delgadillo, 30, entered the plea as a part of a deal that allows him to get off with only five years probation and will not require him to register as a sex offender. If he completes his probation without incident, Delgadillo will not show a conviction on his record. Should he violate the terms of his parole within the five-year period, his deal would be gone and he could face the full 20 years in prison.

Um? Is this what happens when you sexually assault a child as a police officer? You get a slap on the hand and get to carry on with your life? What about the girl? She certainly won’t be able to just forget about this incident and move on with her life. Her childhood is over. And you can bet that if Delgadillo had been a teacher or custodian working at the school and committed the same crime he would have been tarred, feathered and thrown in prison.

Twitter users quickly responded with outrage to the deal, asking what kind of judge in their right mind would agree to such a thing:

This horrible excuse for a police officer was originally charged with two counts of felony indecency with a child after the girl claimed that he had her perform oral sex on him and showed her naked pictures of himself. He faced 20 years in prison and a life as a registered sex offender and convicted felon. Those charges were dismissed as a part of the plea. Instead, he can’t be in law enforcement anymore and can’t have any contact with minors for the next five years.

After that, they are fair game.
