Hate crimes

A 12-year-old Staten Island boy was charged with felony assault as a hate crime for attempting to rip a religious head scarf off the head of a classmate on Wednesday, sources said.

Osman Daramy attacked the female student outside the Berta Dreyfus Intermediate School in Stapleton about 1 p.m., the sources said.

Osman allegedly punched and kicked the girl before trying to grab the scarf wrapped around her head, sources said. He was unable to remove the hijab during the tussle.

Cops also charged the hellbent schoolboy with aggravated harassment.

Sources said it was not the first time the boy had targeted the young victim and that he has harassed her at least four times in recent months. He was in trouble on Monday after he cut a chunk of hair off another female classmate’s head, sources said.

A spokeswoman for the city’s Department of Education said disciplinary action against Osman is pending.

Because he is a juvenile, the case will be handled in Family Court.

  1. Hmmmm…not exactly the poster boy we had in mind. What a very bad boy.

  2. Hi Pearl. Yes, he is a bad boy..but…this could explode into major persecution eventually. What else will be considered a hate crime? How about witnessing to a homosexual? How about preaching ? How about ..??
    The kid probably didn’t pull it off her head as a revolt against Islam, but because he’s a 12 year old brat stirring up trouble.
    crazy.

    • Of course he didn’t. No doubt he thought she was just totally strange. And it seems he doesn’t care for girls very much anyway. At least she wasn’t the only one he went after, so hopefully it will show that he’s just a typical bully against the opposite sex. As if Islam cared for women/girls in the first place! I wouldn’t be surprised if the poor girl was beaten by her father when she got home.

      Unfortunately, this serves Islam’s agenda perfectly. So typical in this age of misplaced hysteria and lack of common sense. Just ridiculous, as are all stories having to do with so-called “hate crimes”, which absolutely already are tightening the screws on Christians, as the law was designed to do.

  3. Yup. I agree with you Pearl.
