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.
Is this parody?
I think/hope so. Wouldn’t be shocked.
gotta be satire.
satire taking a dig at the Hobby Lobby decision.
Not even close to the same thing. This judge must be trying to send a message.
A terribly poor example of it too
Put “humor” in the headline, and stop wasting our time.
I don’t believe this story for a minute. The site seems pretty bogus.
This makes a mockery of the court.
Chopping off a hand is in no way similar to prohibiting coercion to pay
Anyway to check it out?
Could be a left wing Commie judge who is against the Hobby Lobby ruling.
Peoria? From he headline I thought it this was happening ing Dearborn, MI.
This has to be BS.
I don’t believe it.
Fortunately it was only a first offense.
B.S. indeed. It’s from National Report, a poorly-done version of the Onion.
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.
Lib setup. so obvious they were going to do something outrageous to invalidate the decision.
this is the same site that has the “CDC” article. It is B.S.
I’m amazed so many Freepers think this is real.
It's not real yet.
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.
The first thing I do is go looking for more news stories of the event. AlL I’m seeing is from the National Report but I don’t know how legitimate they are.
Personally I’m calling it BS till I see a lot more.
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?
Cruel and unusual punishment.
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.
I meant it’s a piss poor example of parody.
If that was my Son all I can say is what goes around comes around.
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”?
Is that supposed to be funny?
I’m always amazed at how much Lincoln came to resemble Franklin in his later years.
....anybody under age 40 or so wouldn’t have the slightest clue; we live in “Watters’ World” —— and it sucks.
People seem to understand neither the nature of the case nor the rules for decent parody. (I’ve seen one or two which would’ve been close to successful had they had any of the facts correct.)
Yes it is go to original site linked in the original article and the site looks like National Reviw but isn’t.
BS-o-meter is pegged.
The sword to the muslem and the muslem to the sword......it is traditional.
Stupid parody by former msnbc top analyst.
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.”
Tis a BS site. Think ‘onion’
National Report should be banned from FR. It is not at all funny.
Leftists also hope that just a few of us will repeat this story as fact. The do indeed think that everybody else is as stupid as they are.
