God help her.
The laws of this once great republic just don’t protect the innocent anymore, do they?
So this whole case could be about someone here illegally. Damn!!.
The legal system didn’t give a damn for Terry Shiavo, why would they care a whit for Rifqa?
They are, IMO, knowing and deliberate collaborators in whatever fate her miserable menfolk have in mind for her.
She will need it. Her parents may try to get her back to Sri Lanka, or some muslim loon may try to get her dead.
Does anyone know when she turns 18?
They are going to get her and leave the nation? She’ll be as good as dead. The judges and lawyers will not shed a tear for being accomplices in her murder.
I have to side with Parental Rights on this one.
If the kid were 18 it would be a different story or if she could prove conclusively that her life were in danger.
Obama won’t produce his papers; why should she?
They would care about protecting her like all get-out if she were pregnant and seeking an abortion.
Does anyone know how long it will be before she turns 18?
The Florida court schedules another hearing for October 23 to see if the immigration papers have been supplied by Rifqa’s parents as ordered.
Sorry, I didn’t see your post. Oops
And if the girl is killed or spirited out of the US by the parents, what is the consequence to the judge - apparently none. She is 17. What is the age of majority in Florida and Ohio?
Yes, send Rifqa back here to Ohio, where if the poor girl is right, it only makes it that much easier to kill her.
Guess they forgot that we had muslim terrorist’s living here who planned to blow up one of our malls but thank God were caught by homeland security before they could pull anything off.
I think it’s crazy. Maybe the judge should go for psychological evaluation and counseling instead of Rifqa. Because it only takes a second to slit her throat. Once she’s dead this judge can not give her her life back.
Conclusive proof may be forthcoming. Of course, it would be to late to help Rifqa.
She claims that her father threatened her. The authorites investigated the claim and found it lacking: They asked the Dad if he was going to kill his daughter and he said "No."
She should be able to file for emancipation, if she is almost 18.
I wonder whether there is more to the story. How and why Florida? I suspect a boyfriend may be in the shadows.
If they don’t have documentation for her, chances are they don’t have any for themselves. If they all leave, the girl dies.
It may not be a good idea to set the precedence that all a minor needs to do is claim that a parent threatened to kill them in order for the state to support a runaway's actions.
"We enjoy watching white voters attacked, and
the beheadings of children and women.
If the upcoming video is especially good,
Judge Dawson will be the Sharia Czar at the WH."
Her parents are members of a cult that teaches converts leaving the faith must be killed, and she is just such a convert. Additionally you have a 17 year old telling you that her life is in danger.
What "proof" are you demanding? A dagger stuck in her heart?
Parents do not have the right to abuse their children.
BS...if she had claimed she wanted an abortion in florida the court would protect her emancipation at 13...
Ohio does not recognize emancipation.
The threat of murder of Muslim converts is real. It is uncommon in this country. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/08/somalia-muslims-murder-convert-from-islam-to-christianity.html
Works for women when they want to take kids away from their fathers during divorces. The men get screwed. So why not accept this girl's claim?
A really sad day in Florida jurisprudence.....a judge ruled in favor of parents who are involved in a “cult” that believes that all converts are infidel, and must be killed.
Disgusting the way the FL Dept of Law Enforcement acted...not interviewing anyone in the Islamic cult center where her parents are involved.
Also, the radio station WDBO has been pro-Islamic, anti-Christian in their radio coverage. Always referring to the Christian church and its pastor as “nuts”....while never reporting the facts surrounding the mosque that the parents attended. WDBO coverage was anti-Christian/pro-Islamic
Rifka Bary will continously be under death threats from Muslims....in her family and outside her family. Lets hope that some brave people eschew this ruling of judicial misconduct and get her away to someplace else. At least anyone who would defy the judges order....they will have an open court hearing...not a hidden juvenile hearing
Your statement reminds me of comment a friend of mine made once. We saw a really nice Hemi Road Runner going down the road. He looked at me and said I have one just like that, but mine is yellow and its a VW.
I never said we were, I was simply stating a fact. If you see someone in trouble, please feed your self righteousness and ask for legal status before calling 911.
The laws of this once great republic just dont protect the innocent anymore, do they?
No, they don’t.
This is the same country that could elect Fidel Castro, have the Electoral College vote for him, have a Supreme Court judge swear Fidel in, and then say that the citizen has “no standing” to question it.
I believe that is your domain, But I do worry about people's compassion and wanting to spend others money just as much as the liberals do.
But is it just a harmless threat?
The girl is 17 already- why take the chance?
You are so right. That’s my thoughts on this precisely. Being under 18, if she were pregnant and wanted an abortion, there’d be groups of people coming from all corners of the country to protect her and ensure that she be allowed to come/go and do what she wanted, regardless of what her parents or anyone else would say on the matter.
3:46 pm - Ohio attorneys for Bary's parents are arguing for her quick transfer there. Ohio Judge Gill said she agreed with Judge Dawson that immigration papers need to be provided immediately, before the teen is sent back to Ohio.
3:54 pm - Bartholomew said she has received copies of only two pages of Rifqa's mother's passport. She wants the entire document.
3:55 pm - Dawson said he is troubled that the parents seem not to know what the court demands.
3:57 pm - Dawson set an administrative hearing on October 23rd. He wants to know by then that the immigration papers have been supplied, as he ordered in each of the three hearings he had held for the teenager's status.
Perhaps there’s still a glimmer of hope for her..........
I don’t know. At least, there is a delay. It’s so frightening the way they want to hurry her back up to Ohio. Then they will probably flee the country and she’s done for.
When’s her 18th birthday...perhaps the judge knows something about delays more than we think.
This is awful.
Run Rifqa, just run away from all these idiots. Run from the lawyers, run from the judge, run from the muslim death cult, run from the devil and the evil system of educated idiots stuck on stupid determined to turn their backs on you and let you die. Run for your life and don’t turn back. Just run and keep on running. Run and hide until you turn 18 and than arm yourself with God, prayer, and a .45 auto 1911 colt!
Judicial Tyrrany! They need to hide her immediately.
