Florida law enforcement conducts farcical investigation in Bary case

As Atlas Shrugs says here, the fix is in. The police who investigated the Rifqa Bary case in Florida are claiming there's "no credible threat" in the case, and did not even conduct a serious investigation of the Noor Mosque. One of the readers who's close to the Florida Security Council provided some important points:
1. Investigators failed to ask parents about the sexual molestation of Rifqa by her uncle, which her mother knew about, and said nothing about.

2. Investigators failed to ask parents about the threat to send Rifqa back to Sri Lanka. She believes she would be sent to an asylum for being an apostate. This was a primary motivating factor for Rifqa’s running away.

3. Investigators failed to interview the extensive list of witnesses given to them including friends of Rifqa’s who had knowledge of the fear she lived with on a daily basis.

4. Rifqa was interviewed by law enforcement and DCF for close to three hours without a GAL, attorney or foster parent present. She asked for someone to be made available to her and was turned down.

5. While there is no investigation into the subject of Honor killing or death for Apostates, the father is asked if this is what Islam believes. Also questioned on this issue is one Romin Iqbal, a staff attorney for CAIR Ohio, who was present at the Barys’ interview – along with Babak Darvish, Executive Director of the CAIR-Columbus.

6. Yet the Report states: “The Islamic Community was not investigated. An investigation into any person, religious or social organization without a specific criminal predicate is inappropriate.”

7. The Report fails to investigate the Noor Mosque and ignores the 35 pages of extensive documentation of “criminal predicate” filed by Rifqa’s attorney John Stemberger on the terrorist ties to the Noor Center in Columbus.

8. Rifqa stated it was members of the Noor Mosque who informed her parents about her conversion and pressured her parents to handle the matter.
It's clear that even in Florida, there are authorities who cannot be relied upon, as the earlier report noting CAIR's apparent involvement should signal.

Once again, I urge all who care to contact the Florida governor and FL Dept. of Children & Family to urge them to provide Rifqa with the defense she needs:

Governor Charlie Crist's office: Phone: (850) 488-4441, (850) 488-7146

And here's one more item on the subject from What's Wrong With the World.

Update: here's another entry on this from the Examiner.
