Right. An energy drink caused him to lash out with violence and hatred towards an infidel. Not islam. Not brainwashed hate. The S.O.B. goes on to admit he blamed the white kid for enslaving his people. This dipshit must not be up on current events in Africa, where muslims still run a full slave trade.

Man sentenced in W. Seattle attack on teen blames it on Four Loko

A man who was sentenced to nearly six years for an attack on a West Seattle teen said the Four Loko he was drinking that night was partly to blame.

Ahmed Mohamed, who was sentenced Friday to nearly six years in prison for the attack last year on a West Seattle teen, claimed the caffeine-infused energy beer he drank for the first time the night of the assault was partially to blame.

“He is extremely sorry he committed this act,” his attorney, Kevin McCabe, said in King County Superior Court. “It was Mr. Mohamed’s first experience with alcohol and an extremely unfortunate type of alcohol to have for your first run-in.”

Mohamed, 22, pleaded guilty last month to first-degree robbery with a deadly weapon and malicious harassment, the state’s hate-crime statute, for the attack on Shane McClellan on May 25.

According to court documents, McClellan was walking home from a friend’s house around 2 a.m. when Mohamed and Jonathan Baquiring, 21, asked the teen for a light.

When the West Seattle teen, who turned 17 on Friday, stopped, Mohamed and Baquiring attacked him.

For more than four hours, according to court documents, the two men punched McClellan, urinated on him, beat him with his own belt and burned him with cigarettes. They also poured Four Loko on the teen and taunted him by saying, “How do you like it, white boy?” and, “This is for enslaving our people,” according to the charges.

Mohamed, who is black, said in his guilty plea that he and Baquiring targeted McClellan “because he was a different race than we are.” McClellan is white.

Baquiring, who is Asian, has pleaded not guilty to the same charges and is scheduled to go to trial Feb. 22.

During Friday’s sentencing, McClellan’s father, Tim McClellan, said he could not stop thinking about the length and severity of the attack.

“It’s something I just can’t imagine,” he said.

Mohamed apologized to the McClellan family and to his own family for breaking the Muslim custom of eschewing alcohol. He said he felt “peer pressure” to drink and wished he could take back his actions.

In giving Mohamed a sentence at the high end of the standard sentencing range, Superior Court Judge Carol Schapira said the attack was “something very hateful, something very humiliating.”

After the beating, Shane McClellan went to the hospital, where a police officer took a statement from him. He described his attackers as a black man and a man who appeared to be Filipino. He told the officer the two men had been drinking Four Loko and smoking Marlboro Red cigarettes, court documents say.

The officer then went to the scene of the beating, where he found blood stains, empty Four Loko cans and Marlboro butts, which he gathered as evidence. On his way back to the precinct, according to court documents, he saw two men who matched the suspects’ descriptions.

One of them was trying to hide an open Four Loko can in his pocket, according to the police report. The officer contacted the men and noted they had dried blood on their hands and were smoking Marlboro Reds, according to court documents.

He took swabs of the blood on the suspects’ hands, but did not take them into custody at that time, according to police.

The victim’s family questioned why the men weren’t immediately arrested. Tim McClellan had said he believed the delay wrongly cast doubt on his son’s account of the attack.

Seattle Police Department spokesman Sgt. Sean Whitcomb has said it sometimes takes months to build cases that stand up in court.

Mohamed and Baquiring were arrested in September after the state crime lab found Shane McClellan’s DNA in the blood taken from their hands.

Four Loko, which has a 12 percent alcohol content, was banned in Washington in November after it was linked to the hospitalization of nine Central Washington University students at a party Oct. 8.

It was also banned by the federal Food and Drug Administration, but it since has been reformulated without the caffeine and reintroduced on the market.

    A famous quote from Julius Ceasar says “In wine there is truth” and refers to the idea that wine will bring out the true feelings of a person because normal inhibition has been compromised by alchohol. I personally think that is true, and so does the judge, evidently. These guys had some internal racist rage and the alchohol brought that out and emphasized it. That’s just fine except they were stupid enough to act on it. This punk got what he deserves. Alchohol and loss of control is no excuse. I thank God that I quit drinking!

    To be perfectly honest, i read up on four loko and found some more stuff on it
    http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2011/01/25/makers-of-four-loko-extremely-saddened-by-deaths-of-2-teens/
    So it would be a kick-ass defense…if the other facts didn’t emerge, such as
    “For more than four hours, according to court documents, the two men punched McClellan, urinated on him, beat him with his own belt and burned him with cigarettes. They also poured Four Loko on the teen and taunted him by saying, “How do you like it, white boy?”

    While i applaud the nutsack on the lawyer for pulling this shit, i can’t help but feel if we read between the lines (or even really just stare blankly at the lines) we’d see a lot more blame on Al Sharpton and a lot less on Four Loko
    Hell, if the judge bought that heap, i’d say post-humously apologize to the guy who shot Milk and ban twinkies

    I can honestly say this a great example of why inflammatory rhetoric and the reinforcement of the victim complex is violent. Why are kids only being taught about one kind of racism. When will we stop constructing the ‘white/male/protestant’ oppressor archetype in our schools. I’ll teach my kid about Apartheid…but i’ll also teach him about the multitude of unwarranted and animalistic attacks that blacks carried out.

    Yeah, apparently allah has selective vision. I have heard muslims say that what goes on in bahrain is halal, as it is in allah’s blind spot (something along those lines).

    I know all about racism and discrimination from living in the middle east. Even in Lebanon (sadly) I see discrimination against blacks, asians and “palestinians”. A damn shame, but it is human nature to be self destructive and hateful of that which is different.

    I like how a white man robs a black guy, its a hate crime.

    But a black man burns, piss, kicks spit and says “thats for enslaving us”, its just a crime. Gotta love the mainstream media.

    I agree with you 100% on this. White on any other race and it is a hate crime plus the criminal charge. When it is turned around it is just a crime.
