Just days after announcing an order to block the execution of convicted killer Nathan Dunlap, Governor John Hickenloopers administration is once again courting controversy, this time in the form of convicted sex offender Homaidan al-Turki...
Hickenloopers parole board will decide this week on whether or not to release al-Turki, a Saudi national who was originally sentenced to 28 years to life in 2006 for imprisoning and sexually abusing his housekeeper over a period of years in the basement of his Aurora home.
federal and state officials are still investigating any ties between al-Turki, Evan Ebel and the white supremacist gang he was affiliated with the 211 crew.
Ebel, who died in a shootout with Texas deputies, is the lead suspect in the murder of Department of Corrections Executive Director Tom Clements, a crime that officials initially suspected al-Turki of being involved in.
Hickenloopers administration is not the first to consider requests to release al-Turki, who comes from an influential Saudi family.
In 2006 during the term of Republican Governor Bill Owens, Attorney General John Suthers traveled to Saudi Arabia, reportedly at request of the U.S. State Department, to discuss the case with angry officials in the Islamic Kingdom.
Some, like Jihad Watch director Robert Spencer, say its not a coincidence that government officials are once again considering a request to release al-Turki.
Mr. al-Turki has repeatedly claimed that his conviction was driven by anti-Muslim sentiment, and that he was simply treating his housekeeper according to Islamic custom...
We are Muslim. We are different, al-Turki continued. The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors.
The jury rejected al-Turkis attempt to invoke religious freedom, convicting him of 12 counts of unlawful sexual contact, criminal extortion, theft of services and false imprisonment.

It sounds like a message should be given to the other inmates that this SOB has two testicles too many. So even if the politicians and bureaucrats release him to go back to Arabia, he won’t be a repeat offender.
“We are Muslim. We are different, al-Turki continued. The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors. “
Two things - as soon as I see a Baptist church in downtown Riyadh you can start talking religious freedom.
Second? They release this cat and he will be on the first thing smoking - back to Riyadh and his fatherland. I can live with that - if ALL of the muzzies like him go along for the ride.
Gonna need a bigger airplane...
I think, staying Nathan Dunlap’s execution and possibly releasing Homaidan al-Turki are signs that John Hickenlooper thinks he is destined for higher office. These moves are just to prove his credes to fat cat donors for a possible run for the presidency.
This predator certainly is different. That is exactly why he should be locked up forever, far away from decent people.
chickenpooper is grooming himself for a presendaential run in the future. that is why he and his co-traitor bastards are tearing up the Constitution and destroying colorado.
