A Child Molester Set Free to Roam Our Streets

If I weren’t so troubled about our judicial system, and if I weren’t so distressed about the morals in our society, and if I weren’t so touched by helpless children, and if I weren’t so concerned about the seemingly downward spin of my country, I might be quiet about the incomprehensible rulings that are routinely and blatantly slammed down by liberal judges. These decisions must not be ignored–they cannot be ignored–but we as caring citizens must speak out against such ridiculous, outrageous and downright dangerous behaviors. The threads and weavings of our country have taken on strange and twisting pattern; pattern that demonstrates insidious and deliberate ravelings, so that in recent years has become visible a decaying fray and an evil undercutting of moral thought, judgment and accountability. We occupy a fearful place.

Mere days ago, Judge Katherine Savage dismissed a case against Mahmu Kanneh, in which he was charged with repeatedly molesting a seven-year-old girl. The judge dismissed the case saying the delays in the three-year-old case had violated Mahamu Kanneh’s guarantee of a speedy trial. The man is now free–roaming our streets. He served a total of one day in jail.

It’s hard to imagine what prompted Judge Savage to such action. Consider these facts:

1. Although insisting that the case was dismissed because an interpreter in Mr. Kanneh’s native tongue, Vai, could not be found, Mr. Kanneh attended and graduated from an American high school. He also attended a Community College where the classes were taught in English. As far as I have been able to determine none of the classes in either of the schools he attended were in his native language. He conversed with detectives in English.

2. He had waived his rights to a speedy trial.

3. It was judicial responsibility to find an interpreter.

4. There were qualified interpreters available–even on the day of the trial. The Washington Post reports that they were able to find three Vai interpreters.

Thank God that breaking news indicates the prosecutor is filing an appeal.  We must continue to be aware of the society around us. Thoughtfully, but bravely, let us use every vehicle available to speak out against the  drastically liberal trend of our judicial system.  Our children  and grandchildren are depending on us; they cannot fend for themselves. We cannot leave such decisions as these to go unchallenged.

ROCKVILLE, Md. — The prosecutor in the case of a Liberian native charged with repeatedly raping and molesting a 7-year-old girl said Monday that he is filing an appeal of a controversial judge’s ruling that dismissed all charges because an interpreter who spoke the suspect’s rare West African dialect could not be found.

I think this case probably needs a new judge. It’s clear that Judge Katherine Savage is up to something. Judges don’t just dismiss cases like this just because there were no interpreters.


This is very alarming. It shows that the judge is not even concerned that the accused child molester will be free to roam the streets and might do the same thing again.

Barb, what I cannot understand is the what possible motive the judge has in handing down such a decision. It truly boggles my mind. Thank you for your comments and for your concern. We must continue to speak out in every way that is available to us. sjbuxton


Doesn’t surprise me that this happened in Rockville. I used to work there, and lived in Montgomery County, MD.

It’s an affluent D.C. suburban area that is heavily populated with federal employees, lobbyists, lawyers, and others dependent on the government for their livelihood. It is also the most unbelievably liberal and politically correct place that I have ever been obliged to live.

Thank you, Michael for your comments here and for your interest. I just can’t understand, though, no matter how liberal someone was, why such a person would be released. I just don’t get it. Hope you visit here often. sjbuxton
