Elizabeth Smart Might Have Been Rescued Earlier Except For Dhimmitude

A shocking revelation from the trial of Brian David Mitchell, the kidnapper and raper of Elizabeth Smart. Let’s start with some idiocy from CNN, first, though

Maybe Elizabeth Smart wouldn’t have spent “nine months in hell” if her mother hadn’t burned the potatoes.

Maybe she wouldn’t have been stolen in the night if she and her father had closed the kitchen window and set the alarm as they made their nightly rounds after family prayers.

And maybe her ordeal wouldn’t have lasted so long if somebody — anybody — had just spoken up after seeing a veiled teenager who didn’t seem to have a will of her own.

Those are the first three paragraphs of the CNN story. Are they actually insinuating that the parents share some, or most, of the blame? The article actually goes on to discuss that even more. Disgusting.

As for speaking up about the “veiled teenager”, oh, wait, look, someone did

Mitchell began to speak of going to California for the winter, and in August they walked to the library for maps. Someone called the police, saying Elizabeth Smart might be at the library. The caller said he thought he recognized her eyes.

Former Salt Lake City homicide detective Jon Richey was sent to investigate. Although he considered the lead “a long shot,” he asked, repeatedly, to lift the young woman’s veil. But Mitchell said it violated their religious beliefs for anyone but the young woman’s husband to see her face.

Richey testified that it would have violated her civil rights to lift the veil if the story about her religious beliefs was true. And Mitchell’s calm demeanor didn’t set off any alarms for him. He said that when he learned about six months later that the girl he’d tried to question was Smart, it left him “traumatized.”

That was a mere two months after Elizabeth was kidnapped, back in August 2002, a time less than a year after 9/11, when the liberal media, from local all the way to international, along with Good Little Liberal dhimmis, were beating the drum about anti-Islamism, throwing out their standard litany, racism, bigotry, diversity, hatred, cries for tolerance, and so on.

From “Yes, But, However

Upon questioning the trio, Detective Richey asked the man (who we now know to be Mitchell) if he could look under the young girl’s burqa. Mitchell vigorously claimed that to expose the girl’s face would violate their religious beliefs. No matter how many times Richey asked to see the girl’s face, Mitchell stood fast, claiming that there would be “serious religious consequences” should the girl’s face be exposed to anyone but her husband. He also told the detective that their religion forbids women from speaking in public.

The post is possibly the best article written about what led to Detective Richey failing to lift that veil, which I would highly recommend reading the entire thing. As the writer, David Stein, writes, no blame should be placed at Richey’s doorstep: he was simply following the rules and regulations put in place by the Utah lawmakers, revolving around HB 101

For several years, Utah Democrats in the statehouse – specifically Rep. Duane Bordeaux (at the time Utah’s only black legislator) – had been pushing for an “anti-racial profiling” bill. The Democrat-proposed HB 101would combat “racial profiling” by Utah law enforcement by creating a master database of the race and ethnicity of every single Utah law enforcement officer, and the race and ethnicity of every single person he or she stopped in the course of an investigation. Every officer would be monitored to ensure that they weren’t stopping “too many” minorities.

It’s these types of laws that lead to criminals going free, and 14 year old girls from being rescued, as law enforcement officers are put into untenable positions. And it is these types of laws, and all the left wing hang wringing and panty wetting that continues to put our nation and people at risk from Islamists. This is why Grandma Wendy from Wichita, who is so white bread that she brings home baked muffins for the TSA screeners, is groped due to the underwire in her DD bra.

    Rendered speechless by CNN’s foul story, and the result of the PC BS that has plagued this nation.
    I am distinctly NOT a person who believes in frivilous lawsuits and ambulance chasing, but Miss Smart ought to sue the crap out of the state over that failure to seek her identity in the library.
    God Help Us.

  2. It was horrible, wasn’t it? I went looking for something to substantiate the original article I ran across, the second one I cited, and was disgusted by the CNN article.

    Maybe I missed it in that story, but wasn’t her captor a MORMON CHRISTIAN ? Didn’t all of this begin in the one of the REDDEST states in the USA? but somehow it was the fault of liberals because THEY didn’t stop it ? Less than a year after 9/11 EVERYONE was still supporting Bush he had like 90% approval ratings but somehow you thought the lefty/liberals were in total control? WTF

    • EM says:

      –No, he was not a Mormon Christian. He may have claimed to be, but his actions clearly disproved that. He was a cult of 1.
      –The fact that it happened in a “Red” state only shows how far the poison of PC has penetrated our culture.
      –That’s exactly the point. Duh. Even at the height of public reaction to 9-11, Bush popularity, or whatever you want to point to as a supposed “conservative” lean in America, this PC/MC BS still ruled the day, the Left *WAS* still firmly in control. This is the proof.

    All I can say is,… HOLY SHIT!!!!
    We have so screwed ourselves. Even after being attacked BY MUSLIMS we are still too afraid to declare that muslims attacked us. PC will kill this country….. or should I say, IS killing this country. re: CA, AZ, DC.

    Let me ask this question with regard to that anti-racial profiling bill:

    Should a white\black cop who stationed in a primarily black\white neighborhood be guilty of racial profiling because the majority of the people he comes across are not of his same color?

    If a crime is committed and a description goes out that the perp is of a certain height, weight and color, should we not be looking for people who fit that description? Or should we just stop people at random so that the search can not be claimed to be profiling based on RACE!?!?


  5. Well, profiling actually makes sense in that it gives a picture of the actual perpetrator(s), so, obviously, in Liberal World, it must be stopped.
