OPEN LETTER TO GOVERNOR MIKE PENCE »

FROM KOFI AJABU TO ABDUL RAHMAN KASSIG: Torture Is Torture Whether At Home Or Abroad

FROM KOFI AJABU TO Abdul-Rahman KASSIG

TORTURE IS TORTURE WHETHER AT HOME OR ABROAD

 

 

We truly live in very interesting times. Many in the country, and especially here in Indianapolis are praying for the life and release of Abdul-Rahman Kassig formally known as Peter Kassig. I, Rev. Mmoja Ajabu, can also be counted in that number. Peter, now know as Abdul was an Army Ranger. The Rangers are the trained elite killers of the United States Army. As a medic Abdul probably didn’t directly kill anyone but he was definitely with and provided support for them. This scenario also reflects Kofi Modibo Ajabu, my son’s case. Here’s how.

 

  

My son was with some people who killed some people. The Indiana Supreme Court has ruled that there is no evidence presented at trial that indicated he killed anyone. There was no evidence presented because the fact of the matter is my son killed no one. Yet, just like Abdul, Kofi is in captivity doing 240 years for killings he did not commit. Both Kofi and Abdul are in captivity facing death. Kofi is facing a long drawn out slow death, while Abdul’s faces a death that would be over in an instant. This link shows the actual execution of Henning and the threat to Kassig. The video is graphic.

Kofi's slow trek to death is nothing less than torture. To make it worse the Indiana Department of Corrections has been holding Kofi in some kind of segregation, to include solitary, for most on his time in prison. The United Nations holds that anyone held in segregation, especially solitary, for more than 15 days is a violation of International Law and tantamount to the person held being tortured. So my son is being tortured as his captivity moves him to a slow death.

 

Yes, I pray for Abdul as I pray for Kofi. Both have made mistakes that have cost lives. The value to be gained from their mistakes is both are remorseful, both have repented, and both have asked the victims’ families for forgiveness. Now I stand in prayer with Abdul’s parents and pray that the captors of both our sons find in their prayers the virtue of forgiveness. By international law both Kofi and Abdul have been in segregation for over 15 days and by international law are being tortured. Torture is torture whether at home or abroad. We will explore this issue in depth at the Indiana University McKinney School of Law. Details are on the back. We pray to see you there.

Reverend, I really appreciate your faith!!

Full Disclosure:

I really thought it possible to save Kassig's life. My greatest sympathies go out to his parents and loved ones.

January 8, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRev Ajabu

In fact you displayed your sympathy by posting the beheading link.

January 8, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I don't try to spare people from reality. I did feel confident that I had a strategy that would have saved Kassig from that fate. However, his parents decided to listen to others. Now we will never know whether my strategy would have work or not. I am still confident that it would have.

Look how well my strategy worked for Nicholas Allemenos, Lisa Allemenos, and Christopher James

Who are you? Wow I pray for your mental health. You seem to have issues.

Of course, I am the master of ad hominem.

PENDLETON, (AP) - A man serving 240 years for a 1994 triple homicide was expected to be charged with an attack on a prison guard, Indiana State Police said Thursday.

State Police detective Bob May said Kofi Ajabu attacked the 56-year-old guard at the Pendleton Correctional Facility on June 18 as inmates were leaving their cells to go to dinner. Ajabu hit the guard with a device believed to be a lock in a sock, knocked him unconscious and stomped on him, May said.

The guard had a broken collar bone, a broken eye socket, a broken jaw and had brain fluid leaking out of his ears, May said.

Ajabu, 33, was convicted in the deaths of Nicholas Allemenos, 17, Lisa Allemenos, 13, and Christopher James, 23, found murdered in the Allemenos' Carmel home on March 16, 1994. Two other men also were convicted.

May said police believe Ajabu might have held a grudge against the guard, who had worked at Pendleton for 25 years.

Anonymous,

The answer to this article is under my son's picture. The charges were dropped. Yet, my son is still in segregation from something the Court found that he didn't do. America is at a crossroads. Will it measure up to be the land of the free as stated by The Founding Fathers in their vision or will it become the tyrannical menace of which they feared? This behavior points to the latter.

January 16, 2015 | Registered CommenterRev. Ajabu

Well, he must have done SOMETHING wrong to still be in segregation

January 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Hey Jabby, it's been a while. International law does not trump the sovereignty of the United States Constitution. Kofi is where he belongs and everyone except you knows it! Gods Peace
Waterboarding is where we baptize terrorists with freedom! You questioning anyone's mental stability is hilarious!

Dawn/Bunneh:

What!! A blast from the past. Glad to address your words because it makes my point. America is at a crossroads. The route it decides will determine its future. If it chooses torture then the destiny of its democracy will die a tragic death. time will tell how The American people choose. The choice will be forced to be made soon.

That's the lie they want you to believe. I am telling you America is at a crossroads. The road chosen will determine the destiny of its democracy.

January 17, 2015 | Registered CommenterRev. Ajabu

Triple murder, Reverend. Conviction has stood appeals over 20 years.Three teenagers murdered and your son was with two others but killed no one.
But what was that lie you were referring to?

Your statement is redacted to accurately represent the facts. The lie that my son assaulted an office is what I refer. The charges were dismissed as the document under my son's picture clearly shows.

January 20, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

You might want to look up the word "redacted" and revise your altering of my post.

January 20, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

You threatened to kill Steve Nation even though he would not be the one to actually pull the switch on Kofi.
Not very consistent, Reverend.

Anonymous,

Again your words are untrue. I never threatened to kill Steve Nation. In fact, our paths have crossed on a couple of occasions and our words were very cordial. For some reason you want reality to be other than it is. Why? You are a classic example of why America is at a crossroad and pushing people to their threshold. I am sincerely trying to help you and America. To use your freedom of speech as an excuse to disrespect will cause death and destruction like that which happen in France with Charlie Hebdo. That is an abuse of your freedom that has serious consequences. This is the crossroad in which America, you and the rest of the western world now finds itself. The consequences of continuing down this road will turn America from a democracy into a state of police. And, it opens the country up to be a police state under foreign control. The stakes are high. You can help turn it around or watch the country go down. The choice is America's, your's and the rest of the western world. Tell me. What do you choose. If you choose democracy then quit telling mistruths. The states are very high if the misuse of this freedom is continued used as a tool of disrespect. Freedom must be used wisely. Wouldn't you agree?

More threats?

"More threats?" From who? My comments speak to predictable reality.

To my Brothers and Sisters at Light of the World:
I continue to misrepresent, connive, lie, and bring shame upon my home church that brought me in and ordained me.
Y'all know I can't help myself, right?

Why would you say such a thing?
