    Groundbreaking Portland police officer put on leave after arrest in Massachusetts

    Zahra Munye Abu, the first Somali immigrant to serve on the city's force, is charged in Worcester with 5 misdemeanors, including assault.

    BY MATT BYRNESTAFF WRITER

    A 24-year-old Portland police officer has been charged with five misdemeanors, including assault and battery, after being arrested Saturday night at a concert venue in Worcester, Massachusetts.

    Worcester police said Zahra Munye Abu, of Portland, is also facing charges of trespassing, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.

    Abu caused a disturbance while attending a Ja Rule and Ashanti concert at the Palladium Nightclub on Main Street, said Worcester police Sgt. Kerry F. Hazelhurst.

    “The nightclub was hosting several live musical acts,” Hazelhurst said in an email. “She was (given) several opportunities to leave and refused. Eventually she was placed under arrest.”

    A Deering High School student in 2011, Zahra Munye Abu went on to study criminal justice and women-and-gender issues and is now a police officer in Portland. Her arraignment in the concert disturbance is scheduled Wednesday.

    Worcester police would not provide more details about the incident, and members of Abu’s family declined to comment when contacted by phone at their home.

    Portland Police Chief Michael Sauschuck said Abu has been placed on administrative leave with pay pending a review of the matter.

    “The Portland Police Department was notified late Saturday night of the arrest of Police Officer Zahra Abu in Worcester, Massachusetts,” Sauschuck said in an email. “This issue will be dealt with as a personnel matter from this point forward, so I will have no further comment.”

    Chris Besaw, the Palladium general manager, declined to comment about the arrest or what occurred before local police became involved.

    Abu was bailed out of jail at 1 a.m. Sunday, Hazelhurst said. He did not know the bail amount. She is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Worcester District Court.

    Abu is a high-profile member of the Portland police force because she is the first member of Maine’s Somali immigrant community to become a police officer in Maine.

    She was born to Somali parents in a Kenyan refugee camp and has lived in Portland since she was 2 years old. She graduated from Deering High School in Portland and studied criminal justice and women-and-gender issues at the University of Southern Maine.

    If convicted, Abu faces a maximum penalty of up to 2½ years in a county jail on the assault and battery and the resisting arrest charges. Each of the other charges include less severe maximum penalties.

    My bet is that the prosecutors will find a reason not to prosecute this one.

    And she will be back to work soon.

    Because there is so much work for people like her to do in the future..........

    Oh I'm sure of it, once it becomes clear who and what she is: a member of numerous protected and privileged castes, they'll drop charges like a hot rod of plutonium.

    I seem to remember another Somali cop in the sNews.

    Prosecutors to consider charges in fatal police shooting of Australian woman in Minneapolis

    Officer Mohamed Noor fatally shot Justine Damond, a 40-year-old life coach who was engaged to be married, on July 15 after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home.
    Under photo conveniently left out in the text of the article:

    Noor, a Somali-American, has been identified by his attorney as the officer who fatally shot Justine Damond on July 15, 2017.

    Yeah , I generally do not suggest taking people from $#@!hole countries where people do not drive and making them cops in northern climates . The cops we already have will shoot you , these will run over you if they do not shoot you .

    Except as to the rule of appointment, the United States have an indefinite discretion to make requisitions for men and money; but they have no authority to raise either by regulations extending to the individual citizens of America.
