Edmonton Mall sexual assault trial: “No one does this to my friends” — Child witness emerges as champion (Day 6)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


Syrian refugee, Soleiman Hajj Soleiman, is standing trial for six counts of sexual assault and another six counts of sexual interference for a series of alleged gropings and assaults on six minor girls that took place at the West Edmonton Mall World Waterpark wave pool in 2017.

Court is into its second week of testimony and I'm back to being the lone reporter in the courtroom.

The mainstream media has moved on from these girls and the #metoo movement and the women's marchers never cared in the first place.

Last week wrapped up with the testimony of one of the first responding police officers — a 12 year veteran of the Edmonton city police. He interviewed the minor complainants, saying they all described their assaulter in a similar manner.

Monday, court heard testimony from another child witness, a 15 year old girl. She was not a victim but rather their champion.

After hearing two of her friends talk about being groped and grabbed by the bearded man in the goggles and bright blue shorts, she became aware of him swimming towards her in the wave pool.

She described him as like a hippo, with just his eyes out of the water staring at her. She said she told her friend to swim away as fast as she could.

When she heard two more of her friends were also alleged to have been assaulted by the same man, she gathered her friends and made them go as a group to the lifeguard, stand to point out the man in the wave pool, testifying that “no one does this to my friends”.

The young witness could not be absolutely certain that the accused was the man she identified to lifeguards that day as his appearance has changed drastically, with his long beard gone in favour of a clean shaven face.

Thanks for reporting Sheila.

What about the court artists, or using computer imaging. Surely they can put a beard on the guy. When he was arrested the man had a beard, he would have had to have had a mug shot taken. Something is fishy here, what kind of lawyer is not asking for this? How many girls and they can’t make a definite identification? Have these girls seen his mug shot before he shaved his beard off or not?

Find some photos of the guy with a beard so a proper identification can be made and appeal.

It’s like being in the midst of the forest and no one hears you screaming.

If this guy gets off, what else can be done?

Day 6 and day 7 the same day?

Photographs, there must be some of him when he had his beard? What about when he entered the country, he must have had his picture taken at some point, did he have a beard then? This is ridiculous. I am getting sick of it. Canadians are getting tired of being the door mat for migrants to wipe their feet on as they flounce into our country, make demands, take our money and laugh in our face when they beat charges laid for abusing our children and women. This is not going to end well. We are not Sweden, we may be an accepting people but we are not going to be putting up with this.
Clearly, if you are Muslim you get a free pass as far as the law now stands in this country. Trouble ahead if this guy walks.

If that happened to a bunch of young Asian girls you bet this guy would be found with his throat cut and a “Crazy Dragons” tattoo stamped into his forehead..
They just pick on the white girls because they know they are vulnerable with the cards, the game and the odds are stacked against them and us.

I have a stinking idea you are right KEITH BARNES .
SHEILA , thanks for your coverage , and can you mention the judge?

Sheila, thank goodness you are sitting in the court room and reporting on this….crickets from msm and I would bet most Canadians do not have a clue about the molestation of six girls at the water park.

The accused has six, I would like to know if child protective services have investigated the home situation thoroughly and spoken with all of the children to determine whether he has molested any of them too.

‘Maximum Sentence would send the message to other Perv’s out there. He Better Be Found Guilty’! ! !

Keith Barnes. I agree with you. I would also add the pervert is most likely in line for a taxpayer funded payout from Jihadi Justin as well.
commented 2018-01-30 14:07:50 -0500
This pervert will get off, Scot free. Not because of lack of evidence, not because of identification problems. No, he will walk, for the simple reason that he is a Muslim.
Anybody want to bet, Trudeau has already talked to the Judge.
