Prosecutor Says Anti-refugee Movement Spreading False Claims About Syrian Child Rape
Magic Valley ^ | 21/6/16 | Alex Riggins & Nathan Brown

TWIN FALLS | Authorities are denying reports that Syrians gang-raped a child at knife-point in a Twin Falls apartment complex earlier this month, saying the false claims are being spread to incite anti-refugee sentiments.

“There were no Syrians involved, there was no knife involved, there was no gang-rape,” Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs said Monday morning.

.....

Loebs said he didn’t want to “fan the flames of anti-Syrian refugee people” and suspects the rumors swirling around the Internet that the boys were Syrian is the work of a local group opposed to refugee resettlement.

“There is a small group of people in Twin Falls County whose life goal is to eliminate refugees, and thus far they have not been constrained by the truth,..."

An incident did occur, Loebs said, and two juveniles have been charged after authorities obtained video shot on a cellphone. But the details of the case don't match what's being reported by anti-refugee groups, the prosecutor said.

The criminal cases against those juveniles have been sealed, as is customary when children are charged. Although prosecutors are barred from discussing certain details in sealed juvenile cases, Loebs laid out the basics in an interview Monday to the Times-News. Police are expected to provide more details in a briefing on the incident at a City Council meeting Monday evening.

According to prosecutors, three boys were involved, ages 7, 10 and 14, and the alleged victim was a 5-year-old girl....

Last week, residents at a City Council meeting called on city officials to release more information about the incident and questioned whether authorities were covering it up. The story blew up over the weekend when the juveniles were arrested,

The Obama Administration is desperate to suppress such incidents. This happened more that two weeks ago and the word has been leaking out nearly half of June

I predict they, the Administration, will be unsuccessful in trampling the truth.

Technical lie?

Something like they were immigrants but not Syrians or under the resettlement program.

The boys are of Middle Eastern descent but none are Syrian or are recent refugees, Loebs said.

Somehow this doesn't inspire confidence.

I bet you are correct; they will probably classify them as “US citizens”. A 5 yr old girl? WTH; assault ,sexual assault or rape; depends on “Sharia law”....

The shooter down in Florida was also an American citizen. Well, in name anyway.

The delay in reporting to the public is so they can sanitize the truth as best thy can

Muslim or not
They should be able to state that easy enough

Nuff said. The little future jihadi rapists have been poisoned by islamic dogma and their brain damage may be permanent.

The full info would be on the video taken on the phone, which is probably sealed as evidence in a juvy case. The authorities’ denials don’t seem quite kosher, though. So, the other source for straight information is freepers living in Twin Falls/Magic Valley. Anyone out there know the case?

That’s what im wondering. Technical lie. Like they weren’t refugees, or maybe they were Afghans, or Iraqis, or maybe they were Syrians who came from Jordan.

As a rule of thumb, everything the government says is a lie. That rule never fails me.

Very odd for a prosecutor to engage in this kind of flame war against the public.

Methinks he/she/it may protest too much.

Refugees would seem to be probably non-muslim. Who causes the problems? Who holds doctrines that are antithetical to the U
S Constitution and rule of law?
