This is an hour long episode of Vox Pop pdx. I attended the Unity Rally called by the local Somali refugee community in Portland, OR. You will hear the voices of Mayor Sam Adams, local Somali Community Leader, Kayse Jama and other Portland citizens responses to the FBI arrest of Mohamud Osman Mohamud. Mohamud is a 19 year old Somali refugee charged with plotting and intent to use a weapon of mass destruction at a Christmas lighting ceremony in Pioneer Courthouse Square, downtown Portland.
Let’s ask the right questions and have a useful community conversation about Oregon youth in general and what we can do together to keep our communities safe from violence. I have questions about the behavior of the FBI in this case and I hope the larger community will take the time to ask appropriate questions of law enforcement. I am committed to giving a voice to people in the community on this issue.
