Pamela Geller: Raheem Hassan threatened to kill his colleagues over their “islamophobia,” which, if they really did make remarks about his religious beliefs, only proves their point. But he will not face criminal charges as long as he continues mental health treatment. Authorities persist in classifying Islam and jihad as a mental illness. Why haven’t they been charged with “islamophobia” over this?
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Criminal charges against a firefighter who allegedly threatened to “kill” colleagues he claimed had mistreated him over his religious faith will be dropped in six months if he stays out of trouble and continues mental-health treatment.
Raheem Hassan’s case was adjourned in contemplation of dismissal during his appearance Wednesday in Criminal Court.
Hassan, 30, a Staten Island resident, was arrested on Dec. 27 and accused of making a threatening call to his supervising officer at a Dongan Hills home on Dec. 20, said a criminal complaint.
“This is Hassan. I’m going to kill the guys in the firehouse,” the suspect said, according to the complaint.
Hassan worked for the officer for about four years, and the supervisor recognized his voice, the complaint said. more here
