Ayanle Hussan Ali is a violent extremist who may be released soon to attend Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario. But authorities are tight-lipped regarding the nitty gritty details, because apparently, a terrorist’s right to privacy actually trumps public safety.
Three years ago Mr. Ali burst into a Canadian Forces recruiting office in Toronto wielding a large kitchen knife and attempted to kill three military personnel. When he was finally subdued, police charged him with nine counts including attempted murder.
Michele Mandel of the Toronto Sun has been covering this disturbing story that contains a number of red flags including the fact that Ali’s psychiatrist has stated that there is indeed a risk that he might: “act out on political or radical ideas and that there is no treatment for that.”
With so much baggage, how could anyone think it’s a good idea for Ali to be allowed to go to any college unsupervised? What about the potential threat to the safety and well-being of Mohawk’s students and faculty members?
That’s why we headed to Hamilton to see if we could get answers to some very important questions.
Is it thanks to political correctness taken to the ultra-extreme, that the privacy rights of a terrorist actually trump public safety?
