Few Answers To Date In The Greatest Anti-Muslim Hate Crime That Wasn’t

The brutal [slaying] last March in El Cajon of Shaima Alawadi still remains a mystery. Because of what seems to me a series of blunders by the El Cajon Police Department, the crime gained international interest as a possible “hate crime.” Alawadi, the mother of five children, was 32 and a Muslim.

An arrest was finally made on Nov. 8 of Kassim Alhimidi, 48, Alawadi’s husband who is also Muslim. Because this was no longer considered a “hate crime,” national and international attention disappeared, and for some reason, the local media decided to ignore this crime as well.
