Muslim Refugee Gropes Women, Blames Cultural Differences, Avoids Jail

Women in Port Hill, New Zealand can feel confident because their legal system values the Port Hill Groper’s standing in the Muslim community more than their safety.

The family of the man accused of being “The Port Hills Groper” fears he’ll be ostracised by their Muslim community if his identity is revealed, a court was told today.

Name suppression was continued for the 63-year-old today after a judge decided he may have psychological issues if he was found guilty of grabbing, groping, and licking 15 women on the running trails.

I’m sure any psychological issues that he has can be cured with some saltpeter. And what was the Muslim refugee’s excuse for the attacks?

He blamed his offending on a misunderstanding of cultural differences.

Good old cultural differences. And who are we to judge his groping culture?

The accused, who cannot speak English and uses an interpreter at court, put the offending down to a “cultural” misunderstanding, saying he was trying to be “friendly” around Christmas time.

Police documents show he lay in wait on several tracks across the Port Hills, preying on woman walking and jogging by.

On one occasion he called out to a woman jogging on the Rapaki Track and, when she slowed down to listen, grabbed her buttocks and said “lovely lovely”.

Muslim culture is just so… friendly.

The judge had adjourned his decision after becoming concerned that the man could go on with his alleged offending if his identity and his charges were not revealed.

Defence lawyer Moana Cole told the court that the man’s family had taken a decision not to tell their small, local community which has strong ties with the Islamic community.

Judge MacAskill said no part of the community could be given special treatment because of its cultural or religious beliefs.

But insanity prevailed.

But after his family gave him assurances that would not be happening, and since police said the high amount of publicity meant no more complainers would likely come forward, he granted name suppression.

What if he begins groping women somewhere else? That’s a relevant question considering that the Port Hills Groper isn’t going to jail.

A Middle Eastern refugee who grabbed, groped and licked female joggers on a popular running route in Christchurch has today avoided jail and been granted permanent name suppression.

The man, dubbed the ‘Port Hills Groper’, pleaded guilty last November to eight charges of indecent assault.

When the 64-year-old appeared before Christchurch District Court for sentencing today one of his targets read out her victim impact statement.

She said she was “frightened, humiliated and eventually angry” after the assault.

Like the police, the woman argued the offender should be “named and shamed” because he was a “predator and not a frail old man”.

Defence counsel Moana Cole told the court she didn’t think jail was appropriate because her client’s crimes were at the low end of the scale, he was a first-time offender and not offended since.

If he did it multiple times over several years, it’s not exactly an isolated incident.

And no case involving Muslim sexual abuse would be complete without “cultural ambiguities” about attacking women.

“Cultural ambiguities”, highlighted in a psychologist’s report before the courts, may have led to the man’s bizarre actions, Judge Jane Farish believed.

She sentenced him to 300 hours of community work and 12 months’ supervision.

It shouldn’t be too surprising because Judge Jane Farish is probably the worst judge on earth.

A visibly upset judge today told a teenager convicted of sexual violation: “If I had my way I would release you today, but I can’t.”

Christchurch District Court Judge Jane Farish spoke of the youth, naivety, and the good family background of Maia Crawford Rongonui who had attacked a young Australian woman tourist in a dark Christchurch street.

“If I had it within my power today I would release you to your family,” the judge said.

Instead, she jailed the 19-year-old for four years after he was convicted by a jury of assaulting the woman with intent to commit rape, and sexually violating her by unlawful sexual connection.

Judge Farish had earlier told crown prosecutor Ruth Thomas that she believed Rongonui needed to “get back to his family and back to a job”.

“Keeping a young man of 19 (in prison) for a lengthy period of time is really only going to ruin him, particularly when he has such good family support.”

Judge Farish said she believed Rongonui had been hopeful of a sexual encounter, and something snapped when the woman rebuffed him.

He punched her and kicked her as well as trying to remove her pants. The woman fought back and was able to escape, but semen from Rongonui was found on her clothing.

    That people like that can work their way into a position of authority show that the problem not just one naive nut, but is systemic.

    So the fault is cultural differences. So there are people in the West who do what Mohammed X did?

    There are. Yes, they exist! We call the criminals, zex offenders, lechers, reprobates and other names. Their actions are not considered to be normative. They are not normative in a statistical sense that they are mean or the mode of our daily interactions. Nor are such actions extolled in the West by the majority.

    The only difference in this matter between the Muslim World and the Western World is that we would not normally hang him and our courts would tend to be fairer. Well they use to be.

    So what in the Sam Houston made him think that it was normative to assault women in the West?

      its not only the muslim world. its the lower class africans, central americans, mexicans.

      “Cultural differences.” When in Rome do as the Romans do.” When in the United States, do what Americans do. He used “cultural differences” to get away with lustful behavior.

      • laura r

        this excuse is very popular. the US embraces it. @ one time everyone who immigrated here was european. the chinese were an exception, they conformed as their culture is conservative. later the latinos came. not great but still catholic. now its way off the mark. it would have been fine to let in christian arabs, or former muslims. but that was not the master plan.

  • laura r

    i blame this growing trend on the judges. end of case. you will see the amount of rapes later on. youll see the beatings as well. fault of the judges. btw, ladies- maybe your days on the running trail are over. between the knockout game & this trend, i wouldnt go there.

  • Talltrees

    And what about the victim’s rights? Since he’s living in New Zealand, Ignorance is no defense. I’m so sick of everyone giving in to Muslim rights. We need to start using our religious rights against Muslims. No footbaths in airports, for example. They offend me.

    • gerbilcrusader

      The judges and all these liberals need to be killed along with muslims. It’s the only solution. These bastards are at war with everyone. Muslims would not get away with it if we did not have insane liberals running the justice system. muslims won’t get away with their evil. Kill them all! they are all a disease. Unless you have a civil war in all western countries and purge out these liberals, the muslim threat will continue.

      • john spielman

        we must not advocate murder to solve this problem . this case must be appealed and the groper /licker deported

        • Drakken

          The time for civilized niceties and pleasantries with Islamic savages and leftist useful idiots that allow and indulge this is over. You go ahead and take that high moral ground until they bury you in it. This groper needs a high dose of lead poisoning or a short rope with a long drop, the message will be received.

          • john spielman

            We must not stoop to the evil that Islam routinely and unapologetically uses other wise we are no different. I say DEPORT this man and expose the judge who rendered such an unjust decision

          • Drakken

            Bullshite !! John, you don’t get it, the only thing that stops bad men from doing bad things, is doing extremely bad things to keep them from doing bad things. You think that being above it all will keep them at bay? There are mass graves all over the place that proves you wrong.

    • Iranian77

      giving in to “muslim rights”, no. they are giving in to muslim demands. Incredibly mind-boggling.

    • Melody-Anne Osborne

      when all said and done they are humans forget the nationality men should not do this respect is required and these accounts are in no way respectful what if we as women began grabbing their crotches ??? and wrenching them would that be ok?…NO it wouldn’t..!

    • CaoMoo

      Women with hand to hand or martial arts training just need to freqeunt the trails he visits and beat the hell out of him when he tries something. Self defense and lesson learned

  • gerbilcrusader

    If that muslim scum did that in my asian community or hispanic community, no amount of court or police will protect that muslims scum. They will kill him!

  • objectivefactsmatter

    So it is getting worse.

    When in Rome, do as Muslims demand.

    The word for this woman begins with a “C” and ends with a “T”, and no, it is not “cat”

  • Marylou

    Don’t civilized countries require immigrants to learn about the basic laws of their nations before letting them in? Don’t they require them to sign a statement acknowledging that they have received this information and understand it? If not, why not? If so, why does this keep happening over and over again?

    • laura r

      youre thinking of year 1900 or so. things went downhill from there. my grandfathers papers said he was in good health, had been living in the US for 8 years. think it said he was employed. i still have the original paper.

      • Marylou

        You’re probably right, Laura. I keep forgetting what a racist dinosaur I am to expect any civility from people we take in and shelter out of the goodness of our American hearts.

      • Raymond_in_DC

        1900? Try 1950. My late father immigrated (legally) into the US in 1938, after waiting three years for his papers. After serving briefly in the Army, he built a modest business and sought to bring his mother over from the old country. My father had to guarantee that she would not be a public burden, and she wasn’t. Never took a dime from the government.

        Fast forward to 2014, when immigrants and “asylum seekers” are fast-tracked to the welfare rolls – housing, health care, food stamps and all the rest.

        • laura r

          i was exaggerating. the 1950s & 60s were a good time. it was the 80s that things changed.

      Yes, NZ has very strict immigration law but it doesn’t apply to refugees.

      • defcon 4

        Islam0nazis are refugees? From what? From their islam0nazi zoos where they freely persecute, murder and rape anyone kaffir?

  • Mullah Lodabullah

    Two Rongonuis don’t make a right, or something.

  • glpage

    Does the judge believe that westerners can get away with the same crap in whatever god-forsaken armpit of a country the assailant came from? She’s delusional if she does. Maybe some day the culturally impeded dolt will attempt to pulling his fondling schtick on some woman who is proficient in martial arts and ends up getting his butt kicked.

      With luck some one will be carrying.

    The cultural ambiguities are that the women brought it upon themselves. And if he actually raped them they would be guilty of fornication and adultery, candidates for stoning. Sura: Blah, Blah, Blah: Oh, believers in Allah, grope them below the neck, and grope them where ever you find them.

  • defcon 4

    A muslim assaulted an atheist posing as zombie muhammad in Pennsylvania, the muslime jusge dismissed all charges against his fellow islam0nazi, because the atheist defamed islam.

  • Painted Horse

    Doesn’t speak English in court yet when he grabbed the woman’s butt said “lovely, lovely”? OK…we know this song and dance.

  • Mike Nelson

    The Problem is that the Imams teach that it is permisible to assault western women that are not wearing approved Muslim clothing for women because they are tempting Good Muslim men into thinking impure thoughts. If an Imam is caught preaching that crap in a western country he should be jailed 5 years then deported to his home country. Any judge not protecting the public from a Muslim offender should be impeached and striped of their ability to practice law. There are to many lawyers all ready and this s a good way to rid our countries of left wing lawyers.

    Oh for the logic of this…

    A story for which Napier is often noted involved Hindu priests complaining to him about the prohibition of Sati by British authorities. This was the custom of burning a widow alive on the funeral pyre of her husband. As first recounted by his brother William, he replied:

    “Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the
    funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive
    we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall
    therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is
    consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.”

    Just incredible. Seems the Kiwis are picking up the bad habit of prisoner rights over victim’s rights from the USA. I am just surprised that the feminists have not been shrilling as usual but yet again, it is Islam so even the feminists need to cow tow to them.
