Immigrant Muslim family none-too happy with these United States…
It’s never a good thing to get busted on food stamp fraud, burglary, and possession of crack cocaine. But when your wife and daughter are caught on camera flipping off and dropping F-Bombs at the American people and the nation overall, that’s never a good thing.
But that’s just what happened regarding grocery store owner Ahmed Alshami, currently of Buffalo, New York, formerly of Sanaa, Yemen.
As reported by the Breitbart.com news portal, Alshami, the owner-operator of the IGA Community Express Mart, was recently popped on charges of misuse of food stamps, third-degree burglary, and second-degree criminal possession of public benefit cards.
But what Breitbart.com missed was that prior to Alshami’s recent criminal charges, Buffalo’s WIVB-TV reported he was also busted on “criminal possession of a controlled substance after police say they found crack cocaine near him in the back seat of a car.”
And as caught on video for posterity, WKBW-TV of Buffalo filmed Alshami’s wife and daughter exiting his most recent court hearing.
His daughter gleefully fired off a double-barrelled one finger salute to the local reporters while his wife was caught on camera yelling in heavily accented English, “Are you happy now? For Ahmed Alshami? F*ck all of you guys. F*ck America. F*ck it.”
The ever-charming missus managed a quick middle finger the reporters just prior to exiting the camera shot.
As reported by Breitbart.com;
The Erie County District Attorney’s Office said that from October 9, 2014 to March 21, 2016 Alshami allegedly bought EBT (food stamp) cards from costumers and traded them out for cash. Investigators said Alshami would encourage costumers to use their EBT cards to purchase items for him from Walmart, and other “big box” stores.
The illegal purchases totaled nearly $4,000.
The Erie County DA also alleges that Alshami broke into an unoccupied rental property and stole the kitchen cabinets, hot water tank, and baseboard heating units.
Alshami pleaded not guilty to the burglary charges and the misuse of food stamps.
Perhaps a case of being hoisted upon one’s own petard, Alshami recently posted on a community Facebook page a message directed to those he believes are unjustly trying to shut his store down;
We will stay open regardless of what you want… Long stay the Arab stores… We are gonna stay here and make this money! So try to shut us down.
