“The Obama-appointed U.S. attorney for Idaho has taken the highly unusual step of intervening in a local criminal case involving an alleged sexual assault by juvenile Muslim migrants and threatened the community and media with federal prosecution if they “spread false information or inflammatory statements about the perpetrators.”
The whole incident stems from an alleged assault against a young girl by three immigrants, apparently from Sudan and Iraq, where they is was said that they physically assaulted the victim, at least, and urinated on her:

“The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law. We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities….”
Maybe. Maybe not. I think the allegation of a physical assault on a child by immigrants, even juvenile ones, is particularly inflammatory in and of itself. Even if true.
So the American public has a right to talk, as clouded as the case may be due to the ages of those involved, without being called a “racist” or “conspiracist.”
