Iraqi man shot dead while taking pictures of the first snowfall he has ever seen. Because you know, Texas.

Courtesy of Yahoo News:  

A man who just recently moved to Dallas from Iraq was shot dead as he was taking photos of the first snowfall he had ever seen, police said. 

Authorities are investigating the death of Ahmed Al-Jumaili, 36, who was killed in the parking lot of an apartment complex late Wednesday night. 

Al-Jumaili only moved to America three weeks ago, according to a fundraising page set up by friends. 

The Dallas Police Department said that the shooting took place at 11:40 p.m., when Al-Jumaili and his wife were taking photos of the snow. 

He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he died. According to ABC affiliate WFAA, witnesses told police that a group of men randomly started firing a gun and some nearby cars were also hit. 

Crimestoppers offered $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest.

And here I bet that this man believed he was leaving the dangers of Iraq for the safety of America.

I guess somebody forgot to tell him about Texas. 


  1. The insanity and mindless hatred in this country, the one who, more than any other, has stoked this, and encouraged this, and given it voice is Sarah Palin. A video, don't know how old, posted this morning should be shown all over the Web...maybe some of the poor souls would wake up:

      SO TRUE! She is a pied piper of hate! She made it "OK" to hate on POTUS and anyone who is "Different" or "not white"! Also,too, I heard that Congress went behind potus back and contacted Iran so he should just do their job and enact a National Gun ins law. Each gun must be registered and ins. or it will be taken away. First step to stop the insane killing.
      My heart goes out to this mans family and friends....
      Thanks to Republicans America has b/c a horrible place.
      Fuck you Palin.
      One of these days, your hateful Karma going to boomerang back at ya!

    I thought the Texas Bush guy had to fight in Iraq to save the people from bad guys with guns and weapons of mass destruction.

    Why are they shooting them in America now?

    Or, Anchorage, Alaska!

      I agree. A friend is up here for a conference. He moved out of state 10 years ago, before things got so bad in Anchorage, so we reminded him not to walk alone at night, or even go out at night, and give a wide berth to the East Side, like don't even drive through there unless you have to. What a cesspool Anchorage has become.

    Bristol will help save the persecuted Christians in other countries. That is how she proves she is Christian and not racist. He also saves embryos.

    In a move that is perhaps singular in all of American history, Republicans in Congress went behind the backs of President Obama’s administration and wrote a letter to the leaders of Iran explicitly telling them to ignore any kind of nuclear deal Obama may extend. Going a step further, the group of 47 Republican lawmakers made a de facto guarantee that regardless of the outcome of the talks, they would fight tooth-and-nail to ensure that the deal never gets ratified.

    Take a moment to marvel at that position for a moment: They haven’t even seen the plan, have no idea what items are being discussed, yet have dismissed even considering it out of hand. It boggles the mind.

    In the letter, addressed to “the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” the group does its best to condescend and offend, taking the tone of a teacher speaking to a dimwitted child.

      The Republican members of congress probably did the same thing in 1980- just haven't heard about that one yet. You now something like: "You'll get more from our guy just as soon as he wins and in the meantime just keep sitting on the hostages."

      Possibly signed or even written by the House member from Wyoming's At Large District at that time.

      The main purpose is to show Iran and others that our country is weak. They want to blame the President while everyone with heart and brain matter knows how strong he is.

      GOP are without a doubt showing their treason traitor colors. We the People should sue their ass. GOP cheats with voting so the worst idiots can get reelected.

    3. Anonymous9:16 AM

      Best next step will be if Iranian leaders ignore them like the temper-tantrum throwing children that they are. Then Democrats use this in their next campaigns . . . "Democrats want peace, Republicans want war."

      If you asked the 47 members of the august Douchebag Caucus, as they are widely known, they would cheerfully explain to you that ever since Obama confessed to being black - HE DID!!! CHECK IT OUT ON YOUTUBE!!! - , a white man gotta do what a white man gotta do.

      Being black - the logic goes - the president brought this action on himself. What choice did these douchebags have but to disgrace themselves while attempting to discredit the twice elected president of the country?

  9. Why anyone would move to a red neck gun worshiping state, I'll never understand.

    I'm white and *I* wouldn't feel safe in Texas.

    I live here because of my ancestors and I never had the finances or opportunity to move until now and my husband refuses to move. This happened in Dallas, in a not great part of town. I totally hate this happened to this poor man and his family, who wanted to get away from violence, and because of morally bankrupt, stupid hate mongers like Palin et al, these things will continue to happen. Fox News is totally without morals and their lies are expansive and very damaging to the stupid people who cannot think for themselves. Why is college made so expensive? To keep people uninformed and without the ability to look at the bigger picture so they are more easily controlled. This country is full of idiots.

    The mainstream media would never cover this story because the victim was a Muslim.

  12. Anonymous12:43 PM

    This is the message that was sent by this senseless killing--DON"T COME HERE. If you're brown, don't come here. Melting pot? Maybe way back then, now it's a pot stupid stew. I feel so badly for his family, this is not the America I was taught to believe in. Not by a long shot.
