Utah Police Officer Not Charged In Death Of Black Man On A Bike


“The officers told him he was going to be arrested, but Harmon “bolted and ran.” As the trio of cops pursued him, Harmon “turned quickly” to face them, according to the Tribune.

Smith drew his Taser while Fox and the other officer drew their firearms. All three reported that Harmon threatened to cut them and that they saw him reaching for his pocket.

Investigators did find a knife on the ground at the scene, according to the newspaper.

In the footage, Fox can be heard shouting, “I’ll f—ing shoot you!” before he fires off three rounds just as the other officer discharges his stun gun.”



You Can’t Disagree With The Leader!

As salaamu alaikum,

An excerpt from the book:

“It was impossible in the Call of God to disagree with the leader and remain faithful. That disagreement with the leader was the equivalent of disagreement with God. This thinking then provided the leader with absolute authority and no meaningful accountability. The only way a member could sustain disagreement would be to leave the group entirely, and there was no legitimate reason to leave. Also, there was nowhere to go if the person left, because there was no equally viable alternative group anyone could identify. Only the Call of God had the truth, and everyone else had somehow fallen short and was in some way wrong. Any member who chose to leave was therefore not only a spiritual failure but also one separated from God and lost,  according to the group.”

Pay attention to the signs when you see them!

Pay attention!

As salaamu alaikum,

An excerpt from the book (emphasized words in bold are mine):

“These three criteria form what we can see as the nucleus of the definition for a destructive cult:
 1. A charismatic leader who increasingly becomes an object of worship as the general principles that may have originally sustained the group lose their power; (They have a network of dynamic speakers who put on conferences and seminars. People usually leave them in amazement. Originally, it started out as “calling people to the true Islam”.)
2. A process I called coercive persuasion or thought reform; (Stay away from “ahlul bid’ah wal hawaa'”; “don’t read the books of the innovators”, etc.)
3. Economic, sexual and other exploitation of group members by the leader and the ruling coterie.” (A cursory glance on the Internet and social media will reveal all of that, I don’t even gotta tell you!)

Pay attention!
