Mohamed Merah's Father Says He Won't Shut Up; Hires Lawyer to Sue French Police
International Business Times ^ | 3-29-2012 | SHREEJA VN

The father of Mohamed Merah, the Toulouse man of Algerian descent who killed seven people and was shot dead by police, will sue a French police unit over his son's death.

Mohamed Benalal Merah has reportedly hired an Algerian Lawyer to sue the French security services for not following the legal procedures while attempting to arrest Merah, AFP reported.

"Mr. (Mohamed Benalal) Merah came to our office in Algiers on Tuesday to formally ask us to sue the French security services (RAID) for not having followed procedure during the attempt to arrest Mohamed Merah and his murder," lawyer Zahia Mokhtari said, according to AFP

Mr. Merah thinks that his son was murdered. He has asked us to file a complaint against the French security services ... We will begin the procedure once the burial is completed," the lawyer added.

Mohamed Merah was killed in a police siege at his apartment where he was holed up after killing seven people, including three Jewish children, a Rabbi and three soldiers in Southwestern France.

Merah's body is expected to arrive in Algeria on Thursday and his mother and a sister will accompany the body, Algerian news paper Elkhabar reported. He will be buried according to the Islamic traditions in a cemetery at Runnels, Medea, near his ancestors' graves.

The news report also said that Merah's mother had been moving disguised from one house to another in France, fearing the repercussions, since her son's killing spree and violent death.

French foreign minister Alain Juppe strongly reacted on a possible legal suit by Merah's father: "If I was the father of such a monster I would have shut my mouth in shame."

However, Merah's father said he would go ahead and sue the police, and would not "shut up".

We’ve all been somewhat pleasantly surprised lately by how the French are showing at least a little bit of backbone against terrorists... now we’ll see how much backbone the French courts have.

I wonder if the French will be as wimpy as US when it comes to succumbing to these islamist dog turds.

Dad probably does see that girl and some of the others as human. It’s a Muslim thing.

Then there's the story of Algerian-Canadian Gamil Rodrigue Liass Gharbi aka Marc Lépine:

This qualifies as a case by merah’s (the perp’s) father of selective outrage (imho). What other religion in the world would think in this manner? Cannot think of a single sanctioned one on this planet. A guess ... liberalism, communism, and nazism. Do these qualify as sanctioned?

“What other religion in the world would think in this manner?”

Try Martin’s family and the black panthers—which is quickley becoming a religion, right?

Maybe the families of the victims should sue this @55hole for siring and raising a mass-murdering scumbag responsible for killing their loved ones.

As much as we might like to mock the French as ‘cheese eating surrender monkeys’, when it comes to police powers, foreign policy, and espionage, they are pretty damned vicious. Daddy in this case will get nothing and like it. Possibly he will end up with a special lead supplement to his diet.

LOL Now that it’s in front of me, you CAN get islam from liberalism by simply rearranging a few of the letters and dropping others.

The father should be sent to join his son as quickly as possible.

“liberislam”

I thought about that one yesterday. I think we now have the perfect word to describe the left. They think nothing of murder(whether it is by abortion or putting a wanted dead or alive” poster out for a person who has yet to be charged in a crime or for even setting up death panels for the all important obamacare)—as long as it is directed toward innocents and they are considered to be untouchable by virtue of their “religion”.
