Apparently, these people do not know… how to handle things in the United (States). They thought they were somewhere in Fallujah or in the… Iraq mountains and so on.
–Hekmat Putruss, Detroit-area dress store owner about his fellow Iraqi immigrants who attacked him and his family.
You can take some people out of the Middle East. But you can’t take the Middle East out of them. And you don’t need me to tell you. Because a Middle-Eastern man who was the victim says so himself, below.
I forced myself to watch the insipid local news, last night, because I knew this simultaneously hilarious and sad video was going to air. Yes, even at a bridal shop in suburban Detroit, Middle Eastern violence goes on . . . and on . . . and on. And it makes the typical Bridezilla and her family look like the church choir. I feel sorry for the owner of this store. But even he knows his fellow countrymen–those of them who haven’t left their country behind and refuse to be absorbed in American values and civility–well.
More about what we’ll see more of as we continue to let Middle Eastern immigrants invade our shores in droves and bring their Third World violence with them:
The eye in the sky at First Lady Bridal in Lathrup Village catches it all on tape — a real life “Bridezilla,” but she’s not on the rampage alone. Family members are allegedly called in to attack.
“Apparently, these people do not know… how to handle things in the United (States),” said Hekmat Putruss. “They thought they were somewhere in Fallujah or in the… Iraq mountains and so on.”
Putruss, the shop’s owner, said this all started last Tuesday after he refused to provide alterations for a bad mouthing bride who bought a dress and became a nightmare to work with. He told her to take her business elsewhere.
“She (started) threatening me. ‘You don’t know who I am. (I’ll) call my husband to come and kill you,’ and ‘We’ll teach everybody here a lesson,’” Putruss said.
Right after the threats were allegedly made, they locked down the store and called police, but one of the wives was still inside. When some men arrive, surveillance video shows her opening the door and them barreling in.
Inside the store packed with customers, three men enter and confront the owner. They start pushing each other and throw the owner’s son to the ground and begin to beat him. The video also shows one of the men grabbing the owner’s wife, spitting at her and slapping her across the face.
From another camera angle, the video shows a man grabbing the owner, shoving him 40 feet into the showcase and tackling him to the ground. The owner’s son, now shirtless, is hit and shoved in the same direction. It doesn’t end there. The fists continue to fly, and the men pick up formerly dressed mannequins and then use them as weapons. . . .
Putruss and his family say they suffered several injuries from the attack and the damage from the melee is estimated at around $20,000.
Hey, remember all my writing against remakes? Forget that. I have a great idea for a “new” show: “The Basra Hillbillies.” With apologies to Jed and the Clampett clan for the defamation.
