Refugee guilty of sexually assaulting minors in Alberta says he didn't know it was against the law and he's a victim

StaffRebel Columnist

A refugee found guilty of child pornography and sexually assaulting minors was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

According to The Calgary Herald, Tanzirul Alam was convicted of 17 offences involving the girls, ages 14 and 15, including sexual assault, sexual contact with a person under 16, luring, making and transmitting child pornography and obstruction.

The obstruction charge came as Alam made hundreds of phone calls while in the Calgary Remand Centre and convinced a victim to lie in court.

Alam had lured victims he met online and then sexually assaulted them on video. Some of the images were then shared on the internet.

EXCLUSIVE: Refugees Fight Canadians with Rocks, Bricks

The 29-year-old from Bangladesh claimed that being tortured by Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists contributed to his actions. He also said blamed the Canadian government for not educating newcomers to Canadian law and predicted that more refugees would be committing similar acts.

“I believe, in a way, I’m a victim of a system that is not perfect,” he said.

Crown prosecutor Donna Spaner called Alam's statement “self-serving” and claimed his warning about refugees was false.

However, as we recently saw in New Brunswick, a Syrian refugee who beat his wife with a hockey stick said officials didn’t inform him of differences in Canadian laws.

I’m well aware of that, Carole. But here is your original comment: " because it’s the rich and educated Scots who came to Quebec. "

My point (which you obviously aren’t aware of) is that there were lots and lots of Scots who settled in Quebec who were dirt poor – only a handful had the coin to build Montreal mansions.

Carole, I don’t have to look up the History because I was there.

Carole Masse—I already mentioned the massive and professional Montreal Entertainment Industry supported by the French who supplied great talent.
You say everyone left Montreal because of the menace of separation, not the language. Isn’t that the same thing ? ( They wanted separation so they could have their language etc..)

@Jamie and Ron,
Do your research before writing anything. Fact: Montreal booming economy came from the Scots originally who built a huge port that was the only and sole entrance to the Great Lakes, before the US built access to its upper north cities and replaced it. Everything had to go through Montreal. Fact: the city had all the headquarters of the banks of Canada. Fact: Huge factories for beer, textile, ship buildings, wetc..
Fact: the economy attracted many Irish during the potato famine because they could work in factories. Fact: the Victoria bridge was built by them and the french and was the first in the world over a long distance, the St Lawrence , and even the king of England came at its inauguration. BTW the bridge is still standing today. Fact: the economy attracted a very lively entertainment scene, as important as New York. Fact: the banks HQ moved because of the menace of the separation not because of the language.
Tks

Krispy Larue—-Tks for that video, or in the 50’s it was a film. I watched all 1.3 hrs of it as that was the time and place where I grew up in Montreal. Although Vancouver has beautiful scenery, Montreal has beautiful architecture . One building, the St. Joseph Oratory probably has more
cultural and tourist value than most Canadian cities.
You said that you like donuts, so I will buy you some if I ever get back East.

You’d have a hard time convincing the Scots settlers in St. Andrews East or Megantic of that.

@Ron Joseph & @Carole Massé…

Check out this NFB no-dialogue documentary on Montreal in the 50s and 60s:

“La mémoire des anges”

It’s a fascinating world that is completely gone and unknown to millennials, thanks to Drapeau (smashing down old buildings and entire neighborhoods) and Trudeau’s multicult policy (Pierre Trudeau, not his idiot son).

Dig Oscar P, and Paul Anka & Geneviève Bujold at the 1h00 mark!

Carol Masse’—-I agree that in the 50’s and 60’s , Montreal had nothing but money as it was the playground for the Americans, just as Havana , Cuba was. I remember hearing the stories of the nightclub life with stars. I heard the French were a part of that success having so many talented men and women in the entertainment field.
When you say we should have separated so the rest of the Country wouldn’t be bothered, I think it was the opposite. The Companies and therefore the people left because of new French Laws, like restricted English Sign Laws.
Just as his Multiculturalism will never work, neither will Older Trudeau’s bilingualism, at least not in the West.

@ROn Joseph
In the 50’s and 60’s, Montreal was much richer than any other city in Canada and thriving. It competed with New York on the culture stage. We did not receive money from Ontario, that’s for sure. Toronto was a small city compared to it. It all changed in the 70 and 80’s when all our headquarters moved to Toronto because of their fear of separation. We should have separated, we wouldn’t in that way still bother the rest of the country.

@Janice Kay
I don’t agree with your interpretation of history. The Scots built factories because it’s the rich and educated Scots who came to Quebec. The french did not try to replicate the french court, they sent 375 years ago the poors of France. The sweat and blood came from them, and later from the Irish, not the Scots who were the bosses. The french were ascribed to the dirty manual jobs and to farming. There was no other possibility, not even to climb the social classes up until recently 2 generations ago. That’s mostly why Quebecers wanted to separate in the 70’s. That’s the absolute truth.
commented 2017-06-26 20:55:17 -0400
Andy Opreshyn—-I lived in Quebec in the 60’s and 70’s and you are correct in that it had great infrastructure, fancy bridges, the Metropolitan Highway in Montreal ect.. The fact is the Federal Government paid for it all with Ontario Taxpayers money, as Ontario was rich back then. The Feds didn’t want Quebec to leave, so they gave them all these goodies. In those days Liberal Governments were Fiscally Responsible, just like Conservatives. When Ontario couldn’t even afford their own way, the Feds sent the Quebec bills to Alberta.
Andy, did you ancestors put some money away to pay for the infrastructure maintenance?
commented 2017-06-26 19:43:40 -0400
Wow take a Valium, Andy Opreshyn. What are you 20 years old? …

“News Flash! Everyone is an immigrant except perhaps First Nations.”

Total Nonsense.

The Brits and French who came to N America centuries ago are COLONISTS not immigrants, colonists who set up a society with it’s people’s culture and values, just as First Nations did from Asia only much, much, much earlier.

Immigrants are those that come into those societies and are hopefully a good fit.

Besides that you don’t want a population entering your community that is a security risk, a demographic risk, and a threat to its established culture. This is just common sense.

The proof is across the ocean in Sweden, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, UK etc.

The way it’s going in Canada we are on our way to becoming a quasi-eastern country with eastern values. And thanks to the lunatic at Langevin Block it just might happen. No thank you.

ps. I seriously doubt that you are French-Canadian.

Don MacDonald commented to Andy Opryshun, “Your French ancestors made this country from sweat and blood ? Wrong again, my Scottish ancestors made this country .My last name is the same as our first Prime Minister (who I am related). The contribution of the Scottish to this country is so extraordinary that many people who weren’t overtly Scottish claimed Scottish blood including Pierre Elliot Trudeau.”

You are so right, Don Macdonald. The elites in New France wasted their time prancing around trying to replicate the customs and intrigues of the Court in France all the while ignoring their job which was to develop the seigneuries. The main reason the province thrived was because of the industrious Scots.

Don Macdonald well said, the only answer you will get will be silence or being called a name.

Andy they have never said all immigrants are bad, the only one spouting absolutes is you.

Andy Opryshun ,
Where to start ?
You state Goldy is a made up name . WTF is Opryshun ? It sure as hell ain’t French. It’s as fake as you are . That’s the beauty of the internet , it allows trolls like you to hide and have false courage but like all trolls you’d scatter like coackroaches in light if asked to debate in public. Trolls are at your throat on the internet , at your feet in public.
" Everyone is an immigrant except First Nations." No , First Nations are immigrants also , they just got here first.
Your French ancestors made this country from sweat and blood ? Wrong again , my Scottish ancestors made this country . My last name is the same as our first Prime Minister ( who I am related). The contribution of the Scottish to this country is so extraordinary that many people who weren’t overtly Scottish claimed Scottish blood including Pierre Elliot Trudeau. Thirteen out of 22 Prime Ministers were Scottish yet the Scottish were never more than 16% of the population. Just a few contributors to the country , Alexander Graham Bell (telephone), Sanford Fleming ( 24 hr time zones), Tommy Douglas ( national health care ). The list goes on and on. The French presence in this country mirrors their accomplishments throughout the world . Look at their colonies in Africa ; Sudan ,Niger , Senegal, Mauritania, etc. – all festering sh*t holes of humanity thanks to the French mindset.
The bottom part of your comment just devolves into typical leftist racist twaddle. Never bring a knife to a gunfight and in your case never bring a below average IQ to an average intelligent discussion board. You have been weighed , you have been measured and you have been found wanting.

There is a sad truth behind this criminal’s claim. Refugees are cut loose in this country with zero time spent instructing them about what constitutes acceptable behavior and what the consequences are for breaking the law. And this isn’t something new under turdo la doo.

In this particular case, the judge didn’t buy this guy’s bullshit excuse, but there are judges who do: http://www.apnewsarchive.com/1998/Lenient-Rape-Sentence-Criticized/id-4192a8f84e805383097367d3f8fd0c5a

And I’ll bet a thousand bucks that some day in the not-too-distant future there will be an upper court decision that compels judges to take migrants’ ignorance of our culture into account when sentencing.
commented 2017-06-26 16:29:03 -0400
And okay, Andy, provide us some proof for a change.

Provide a list of all refugee names, and all their employers, or the businesses they started so all of us here can confirm by each simply checking a couple of names.

Seeing as how 90% of Trudope’s photo ops are still on welfare, I think you’ve got a slog ahead of you.

But a bunch are most likely double, triple, quadruple and wherever you want – dipping so that’ll likely eliminate 30 to 40% of the cases.

It has become the go-to defence for newcomers, “It’s not my fault, I didn’t know, nobody told me,” etc. etc. etc…
This origin of this trend can be directly traced back to a wet-behind-the-ears Member of Parliament a few years ago who weeped and moaned about the use of the word “barbaric” in an Immigration department pamphlet.
Wear it, Justin. Wear it well.

I can’t believe you all fell for that Andy Ass-wipe bit of shit-disturbing nonsense!
He, or it, wrote it to cause you to be upset, angry, call him names, jump up and down and screech…
These troll-goons’ raisen d’ eater, is to put evil, filth, ugliness, inanity, confusion or anything else negative and destructive into the universe. Nothing else. They are dark and evil demons, like BLM, antifa or Moslem terrorist ‘organizers, etc…whether you believe in God or not. Demons from Hell!
They’re here at THEREBEL to do all that and redirect the focus of the people who are here to learn, or offer help. They’re here to obfuscate. They are here to damage, destroy, debase and devalue, good and truth, structure and stability. Demons I tell you!
They’re probably all the same one or two – ‘people’ – for lack of a better term.
They don’t hear your responses – measured and intelligent, or ad hominem – they only see a response and award themselves another point and pat on the back. They don’t care about truth, just dirt and destruction…

Being the last person who should advise, ’Don’t Feed The Trolls’, since all of them offer absolutely nothing of value, by feeding them at all, they’re winning…by shooting them we’re winning, by ignoring them we’re winning, by feeding them anything you keep their evil alive…
