Ever seen a monkey with a football?

This will be better. This promises to be a spectacle not seen since Britney’s divorce.

A Somali teenager arrived to face what are believed to be the first piracy charges in the United States in more than a century, smiling but saying nothing as he was led into a federal building under heavy guard.

Abduhl Wali-i-Musi, the sole surviving Somali pirate from the hostage-taking of an American ship captain, was to appear in a courtroom Tuesday on what were expected to be piracy and hostage-taking charges.

He's no Jack Sparrow

He's no Jack Sparrow

Two thoughts…
1) This guy is probably being treated better as a prisoner of the US than he ever has running free in Somalia.
2) Why is there a Somali Justice Advocacy Center in America, and how the HELL did it end up being in Minnesota??

    1. A Somali advocacy group exists in America because there are Somali immigrants in America. I’m trying to think of an immigrant ethnic group in the US that doesn’t have one. Why is this such a problem?

    2. There’s a very large Somali community in Mpls-St. Paul. I’m sure it came into existence the way all such communities come into existence in the US. Someone immigrates there, finds success, spreads the word, and other people from his country show up in the same place, because it’s easier for them to get a toehold there.

    You write like you grew up in Finland or some other country that’s never known any significant immigration.

    I think FastNav is wondering why the frozen north as opposed to Texas or someplace more like the home climate they’re more used to. Finns relocating in Minn. I, for one understand, but SOMALIs???

      and AkaLaguna These are promotional vioeds of success stories with people who succeed with Trump University. Don’t leave complaints because you didn’t. Or you feel other people won’t get any value from Trump University. Quit trying to get rich quick then. Stick to buying lottery tickets chumps!

    PS: Since he’s a juvie, he’ll probably get a lecture from the judge and sent to a Foster home. THAT’s why he is smiling.

    Virgil’s got it right. I found it more humorous than anything else that the Somali center is in the land of the frozen tundra.

    Virgil –

    The great thing about the immigrants we get in this country is that they’re pretty intrepid, and willing to go where the work is.

    I was raised in Alaska. That didn’t keep me from moving to LA to find a job.

    And the Finns, like all the Europeans, to Florida.

    looks like he’ll be tried as an adult…not that we could prove his age anyway…

      I have always had a sense of America being the ledaer amongst all other nations so it would have been my hope for my President to at least say something sooner and follow through with aid if need be. I agree we should help our citizens first and wonder … where is Mr. President on the more important issue of unemployment? Hmm?
