Abu Dhabi Police Capture Suspect in Killing of American Teacher

. . . And they put together a movie to show how it was done. Wow. If our police could do this, cases would clear courts a lot faster. Here is the story:

From AOL News:

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The United Arab Emirates’ interior minister says police have arrested a suspect in the killing of an American schoolteacher in the capital, Abu Dhabi.

State news agency WAM says Interior Minister Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Thursday that the suspect also planted a makeshift bomb outside the house of an American doctor. He says the device was successfully dismantled.

Police say the teacher was stabbed to death by an attacker wearing the full black veil commonly worn by women throughout the Gulf Arab region.

When I watched it YouTube, it showed sponsorship by No Nonsense, LOL, which I thought ironically appropriate.

  1. Reblogged this on Liberalism is Trust Fucked with Prudence. Conservatism is Distrust Tainted with Fear and commented:
    I suggest Vinnie Jones, Val Kilmer, Danny Trejo and 50 Cent play Abu Dhabi police roles to dramatize the capture scene.
    Both Video Footage and Narrative are Amateurs’ Doctored Parallel Reconstruct Choreography. Get to the Cream Gulf News. What’s name of the beheaded American Lady?
    This showdown killed UAE National Day Festivities. Is that a coincident?
    The Darth Vader Anakin Skywalker in Abaya as rightly described by Edward Thomas ain’t the killer. It’s uglier than that. To defuse this phenomenon; bribes ain’t working here no mo. It ain’t going away. Wolves knew where coyote hid cubs. Abu Dhabi got to do better than that. Go transparent before it’s too late and quit fucking News posting stooopid jokes.

  3. Where to start? AlAhtal, please watch your language; my Mother reads this blog. So what is the truth, in plain language?

    Here is the rest of the article from AOL news:

    Interior Minister Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is also deputy prime minister, said the attacker targeted her victims based on their nationality alone in an attempt to create chaos and terrorize the country. He called the stabbing a crime that is “alien to our secure country.”

    “The victim of this brutal crime was a schoolteacher who was committed to building strong future generations,” he told reporters.

    After carrying out the murder at the Boutik Mall on the capital’s upscale Reem Island, the attacker left a makeshift bomb at the house of a 46-year-old Egyptian-American doctor in the prominent waterfront Corniche area.

    One of the doctor’s sons discovered the device as he headed out for sunset prayers at a local mosque, and police were able to dismantle it before it could cause any damage, the interior minister said.

    The bomb, which authorities described as primitive, included small gas cylinders, a lighter, glue and nails.

    Police say the teacher was stabbed to death by a butcher’s knife-wielding attacker wearing the full black veil commonly worn by women throughout the Gulf Arab region. Emirati authorities identified her by the initials I.R. and said she was 47 years old.

    Footprints Recruiting, a Vancouver, British Columbia-based company that found a job for the victim, gave her name as Ibolya Ryan.

    “We await the results of the ongoing police investigation before making conclusions about why this senseless tragedy occurred,” the company said. “We are confident that the UAE in general and Abu Dhabi in particular remains a safe environment in which to live and work.”
    David Duerden, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy, said the mission is working with all appropriate authorities to gather further information and is in contact with the victim’s family to provide consular assistance. It has not released the victim’s name, citing privacy considerations.

    Police earlier said the victim had 11-year-old twins and that they were being kept in protective custody until their father, who is the victim’s ex-husband, arrived in the country.

    The Emirates, an increasingly popular tourist destination that is home to the world’s tallest skyscraper and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix auto race, is a safe haven in the turbulent Middle East.

    It is one of the more prominent Arab members of the U.S.-led coalition conducting airstrikes against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. American and other Western allies rely on air bases in the country, and Emirati fighter pilots have carried out multiple missions as part of the bombing campaign.
