We have seen crimes committed by men wearing Muslim women's clothes and covering their faces, and jihadis who eluded capture in the same way. Now we see a niqab-wearing woman kidnapping a child. Schools procedures requiring that she identify herself were not followed. Why not? Could it have been because school officials feared that the Muslima would run to Hamas-linked CAIR with charges of "Islamophobia"?
"Kidnapping at School: What Went Wrong?," by Claudia Gomez for MyFoxPhilly, January 15 (thanks to all who sent this in):
West Philadelphia - Many parents at Bryant Elementary School in West Philadelphia are unnerved by the kidnapping that happened inside the school Monday.
They're unhappy with both the school and the district, for good reason. District officials say they have good security policies in place, but none of them were followed. And that allowed the kidnapper to have free rein.
Bryant Elementary School isn't exactly in the safest neighborhood, So you might think security would be extra tight. But when the victim's mom talked to school officials Monday afternoon, "They didn't know nothing," Latifah Rashid insisted. "It's going on 3:30 and they didn't know where my kid is."
The kidnapper had talked her way past a hall monitor and took the girl from her class, violating every security procedure the district had put in place. A district official says a visitor is supposed to sign in at the front desk and show photo ID. If they're picking up a child, their name must be on a list provided by a parent. Only then will the child be escorted from his or her classroom. "A student should never be released to an adult from a classroom," Philadelphia School District Spokesman Fernando Gallard told Fox 29. "The release should only occur at the main office."
But that didn't happen either. The victim's substitute teacher allowed the kidnapper into the classroom. Taja Henson's daughter saw it happen. "She said the teacher was nervous to let her kind of leave out the classroom, but when I asked, did he call somebody to ask was it okay for her to leave, she said no," Henson said.
"They didn't check ID, they didn't call me," Latifah Rashid, the victim's mother, added. "The substitute teachers says that he asked the mom if she wanted to sign (the victim) out. The woman said, oh I already signed her out at the office."...
