A shocking video went viral on Friday showing a man being viciously beaten by several thugs in Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s 14th Congressional District — and she hasn’t said a single word about it.
Law enforcement officials arrested over a dozen suspects in connection with a possible crime ring that was recently caught on camera attacking a man.
Omar has not made a public statement at all regarding the horrific attack in her district.
“According to a report provided by Minneapolis police spokesperson John Elder, a three-day sweep conducted two weeks ago ended with police arresting 16 people between the ages of 13 and 25,” KSTP reported. “The suspects are seen on surveillance video punching, kicking and riding over one man with a bike.”
“One of the incidents happened on Aug. 3 near Target Field. According to the criminal complaint, the footage shows approximately 12 males attempting to take a cellphone from a male victim, viciously beating him,” KSTP continued. “The suspects are seen ripping the victim’s shoes and pants off and then going through his pockets. The victim is noted to be punched and kicked in the head several times throughout the altercation. At one point, the complaint states the victim is thrown to the ground — left motionless — then repeatedly jumped on, hit with planting pots and ridden over with a bicycle. Once police arrive, the victim and all suspects involved are gone.”

All of the suspects were arrested and had their bail set at $100,000 each.
Based on the clip above, the group of thugs robbed the man of his cell phone, threw trash at him, ran him over with a bicycle, stripped his clothes off him as well as tackled and body slammed him while others punched and kicked him.
As concerning as this is, it’s just another day in Minnesota.
Earlier this year, Fox News reported that new FBI statistics have found that Omar’s congressional district is the terrorist recruitment capital of the United States.
“More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country. FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.”
“We are very conscious that there may still be fertile ground for that, and that is could re-start at any time,” a federal law enforcement official told Fox News. “Based on historical experience, we had (an uptick) in 2007 and 2008 going for al-Shabab, then a lull. Then, as ISIS came back, we saw a whole bunch of people no longer headed for Somalia. They were headed for Iraq and Syria. That really caught us off-guard, we didn’t see that coming. It didn’t make sense to us. We understood why kids were going back to Somalia, but going to Syria was another we issue.”
It is also worth noting that Omar previously advocated for leniency in the sentencing of men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS.
When Omar served as a state legislature in Minnesota in 2016, 9 Somali refugees were arrested and found guilty of attempting to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
Prior to sentencing, Omar wrote a letter to the judge overseeing the case and begged for leniency for the Islamic extremists.
That’s right — these 9 radical jihadists, many from her district, were trying to join ISIS so they could carry out acts of violence against innocent people.
But Omar didn’t care about that and, instead, begged the judge not to sentence the would-be terrorists to 30 to 40 years in prison.
She actually argued in her letter that the best way to deter Islamic extremists from joining ISIS it to be “compassionate.”
