I don’t understand. Was it mutilated monkey meat? What’s the big deal?

To the tune of “The Old Grey Mare”

Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
Mutilated monkey meat
Dirty little birdie feet.
Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
And me without my spoon.

But they had straws!

This bimbo should have got life in prison for that stunt.Monkey Meat is a prime vector for the Ebola virus.

I’d hate to see that crap in this country.

"The judge ultimately rejected that defense but gave Manneh a lenient sentence because she has 11 children and is mentally ill."

"mild mental retardation," according to court papers.

Problem solved right there.

Closing the curtain on a four-year saga that raised issues of freedom of religion and freedom of speech, a West Brighton woman was sentenced today to three years’ probation for smuggling illegal monkey parts, known as bushmeat, into the country.

Ms. Manneh and members of Christ Memorial Christian Church, which she attended in Stapleton, maintained that eating primate parts conforms with their religious beliefs. Doing so imbues them with the cunning and agile animal’s spiritual power while also helping them "get closer to God."

The wildlife parts carry the risk of "numerous" infectious diseases, including tuberculosis and Ebola.

The judge said her faith didn’t bar Ms. Manneh from applying for the necessary permits to import the animal parts, and she did not explain why she had misled border officials.

Manneh's lawyers argued that she and other African immigrants on Staten Island needed the meat for religious reasons.

I wonder if they'll try that defense if African immigrants are caught smuggling in parts of albinos or human babies.

It gets worse. Manneh is already serving a two-year sentence in state prison for trying to run over a woman she suspected of sleeping with her husband, Zanger Jefferson. If convicted of the federal charges she faces up to five more years in prison and deportation. “The government’s taking a woman away from her children,” complained Jefferson, who’s struggling to raise the children alone. “It’s very depressing, especially with the holidays right around the corner.” http://www.daylife.com/photo/068X2K2crX0xe

Federal Judge Raymond Dearie ruled that Mamie Manneh shouldn’t be put behind bars for illegally trying to sneak 720 pounds of bushmeat including limbs, skulls and torsos...
Dearie gave her a stern warning not to violate her probationary terms. Her long rap sheet includes charges of selling stolen clothing and running down her husband’s girlfriend with an SUV.

Smuggling monkey meat? I clicked this thread thinking it was about a cross dressing prostitute.

Why can’t she eat a monkey? I have no objections, and even if I did, who cares what I think?

Yep, lets just import some Ebola, Marburg, or Lassa into NYC. That would be a fun time for the NY Democrats.

She can eat all the monkey meat she wants in Africa.

We don’t need to import diseases from Africa as we have enough flooding across the southern border.

Looks to me like we'll have enough problems with 11 children of a "mentally retarded" woman living on the dole.
