Want To Rape Without The Inconvenience Of Jail Time? Then Halifax Is Your Kind Of Town!

Halifax taxi driver gets no jail time on sex assault conviction against 19-year-old passenger

A former Halifax taxi driver convicted of sexually assaulting his passenger has been handed a sentence with no jail time.

Saher H. Hamdan was handed a four-month conditional sentence by Judge Michael Sherar in Halifax provincial court Thursday, followed by three years of probation.

The sentencing comes about eight months after Judge Gregory Lenehan’s comments on consent and decision to acquit taxi driver Bassam Al-Rawi of sexually assaulting a passenger who was passed out in his cab drew national attention.

This is the second guilty verdict against a Halifax taxi driver charged with sexual assault in the past few years. The first was Ahror Mamadiev who was given a conditional discharge in September, 2015, and currently does not have a taxi license.

            And don’t forget those postcards which showed the border: three feet of snow and an igloo on the Canadian side; green grass and a nice bungalow on the US side.

            I’ve actually had tourists from NYC ask where the polar bears are when I was living in Toronto walking in front of the ROM.

            I thought they were pulling my leg, they weren’t .

      I’m from there originally though there’s no way I’d ever go back, given what a progressive-liberal-islamic hellhole it’s become; however, my sister lives in Cole Harbor (across Halifax Harbor from Halifax). I’ll give her a heads up on your behalf 😉

        Thanks for the solid Jayme!

      If you’re white you’ll wind up in jail. Muslim or any other minority of color; slap on the wrist.

    In a multicultural country you have to respect other cultures as at least equal to your you own, which is why non-Islamophobes accept sharia law as our law.

    Does the judge honestly believe that if the father, brothers, boyfriend of the victim were allowed 15 minutes with the accused that he would survive the encounter? That which is rewarded is repeated, that which is punished is discouraged. The judge just encouraged more sexual assault with this non-sentence. Any bets he will re-offend?

    Now if it was a white cab driver, what would the sentence be?

      Now that you mention it I remember a time long past when all taxi drivers were actually Canadians and no such things like sexual assault, refusing anyone with a guide dog or carrying booze occurred. Also they spoke and understood the language and knew the routes.

        I remember White Taxi drivers as late as the 1980’s.
        It’s like it was another age.

      • Taxi drivers are the scariest drivers on the road. Why do third-worlders –
        and Muslims especially – always take over the cab industry wherever they move to? Is there some long-standing chronic shortage of semi-employed Canadians/Americans/Brits who are willing to pick up extra cash driving cabs? Are people from, say, Syria or Bangladesh renowned for being exceptionally splendid drivers?

        This is a serious problem in parts of Britain. Much more so than in Halifax, obviously, because it’s always a matter of numbers. One of the factors enabling the infamous “child-grooming” gangs, and also preventing, say, young Muslim women escaping their families when they have a mind to, is that the local taxi drivers are mostly Pakistani dudes prowling the area, all of whom are related to someone who knows everyone in the Pakistani community. Essentially they operating as enforcement gangs.
