Muslim Store Cites Hobby Lobby in Shoplifter Mutilation Case

On Wednesday, the owner of a small chain of convenience stores was arrested in Peoria, Illinois after he chopped off the hand of a 16 year-old shoplifter who had attempted to steal a bag of potato chips and a 16 oz. soda. But due to the Supreme Court's recent Hobby Lobby decision, that man was released from custody on Thursday, even after pleading guilty to the attack. On July 2nd, Seif Majeed, 41, of Peoria caught a young, unidentified shoplifter, chained him to a pipe in a back room, and then severed his right hand with a meat

Complete travesty in the application of the Hobby Lobby case. This judge must be impeached.

This makes a mockery of the court.

Chopping off a hand is in no way similar to prohibiting coercion to pay

religious observance does not include direction of violence towards others.

did they find the boy’s hand? no?

then charge the shop owner with theft - under Sharia Law.

I don’t believe it .... yet. The mohammedans are committing honor killings here, though....so it’s a matter of time before they demand sharia law be allowed to be practiced in their neighborhoods, at least amongst themselves....at first. I suspect if one of these POS ever physically assaulted a non-muzzie in this fashion, he’d experience a serious case of lead poisoning from either the victim of their so called system of justice or close friends, relatives or patriots for that matter. Study history, folks, these koranimals will not go away, or coexist peacefully, no matter what gussied up lies they tell, or their allies in the media, academia or the dhimmicrat party as well. Stay vigilant.

Yep. Sounds like an urban legend to me. I can't find any account of this crime actually taking place.

This is one of those "fake but might come true, someday, somewhere..." stories that leftists are salivating for in the face of the USSC Hobby Lobby decision.

Don’t think this judge is prejudicial do we? I bet he’s hoping that a liberal lawyer will run the SC now and demand that they overturn their verdict...make things right. Did anybody check to see the ethnicity/religious affiliation of this judge?

“A terribly poor example of it too”

The only culture I’m aware of that does this is the Saudis. But there’s a “trial.” I put it in quotes because the accused is assumed guilty by this time. The judge ascertains how he stole it, whether he used his left hand or right hand. That’s the offending hand, see?

A woman who wants birth control and works for Hobby Lobby retains her freedom of choice to go down to the pharmacy and get birth control pills, get an IUD from her OBGYN or an abortion from Planned Parenthood. The ruling only impacts whether or not her employer and other employees in the health plan have to subsidize her “choice”. The Supreme Court ruling doesn’t say she can’t get contraception - only that her employer doesn’t have to pay for it. If she can’t afford $20 a month for the pills, Medicaid will cover it or Planned Parenthood can use the billion dollars in tax payer money it receives to pay for an abortion. She has options, and they are hardly limited by the company’s actions, since it still pays for birth control pills and other contraceptive methods.

Comparing having to pay for your own IUD to violent assault and mutilation (chopping off a thief’s hand) is assault on reason.

A shopkeeper can’t do that in Saudi under Sharia law. There has to be a “trial.”

Interesting story about murderers in Saudi. What if the killer is from a prominent family? Story goes that they will have a trial and if found guilty, they will be executed in the public square just like anybody else. Years after the “execution” the guilty person can been seen discoing down in Europe. Feel sorry for the poor SOB who took was volunteered to take his place.

Correction to that last sentence;

Feel sorry for the poor SOB who was volunteered to take his place. Most who are beheaded are drugged first. Most likely the stand in was randomly picked from prison but not a Saudi.

The setup is false and the satirical point being attempted is specious.
1) Like most legal systems, sharia involves a trial before a jurist trained in Islamic law, or at least a group of respected elders. The penalties are not carried out by the complainant before the fact. As presented in this article, an angry maniac committed an act of personal revenge. Nothing “lawful” in that, however you slice it.
2) For a better analogy to the Hobby Lobby case, imagine if the government decreed that Muslim business owners treat their employees to daily pork dinners and gallons of whiskey. Should a devout Muslim be required to do that? I think not.

I’ll take the Hobby Lobby decision as a small victory for freedom, but it certainly opens up some issues. The ruling recognizes that a closely-held corporation has the same rights as individuals. Edwards’ previous ruling on ACA, said if it was Constitutional (yet TBD), it was so through COngress’s power to “tax”. The ACA regulations that Hobby Lobby objected to are a form of taxation, and must be enforced as taxes. They were also created by unelected bureaucrats, not Congress.
1) So can individuals who oppose, on religious grounds, the use to which other taxes are put, now legally refuse to pay them?
2) What gives Congress the right to devolve its power to tax to executive-branch bureaucrats? What stops unelected bureaucrats from creating any sort of obligation they can fancy via ACA “tax regulations”?

Stupid parody by former msnbc top analyst.

“Matt Rock
After studying journalism, political science, foreign affairs, and culinary arts, Matt Rock joined the staff at Epoch Times as a political analyst focused on India, before being assigned to cover North Korea. He left in 2008 to join MSNBC as an off-camera political analyst, where he earned multiple awards and was named MSNBC’s top analyst four years in a row, from 2009 through 2012. He was hired in 2013 for a short stint at the Wall Street Journal, before ultimately deciding to write for National Report in 2014, feeling mainstream media sources were too invested in stories that didn’t matter.”
