Human trafficking and slavery still exists in a few places in America. And many of the cases of slavery taking place can be attributed to Islam, who have long culturally believed that slavery is an accepted practice. In fact, it was Muslims who originally captured the slaves sold to the Americas, all in the name of Allah. In the latest case, an old Tennis Pro from the tiny nation of Togo in Africa dragged some young black children to his American home and enslaved them for years.
From the DailyMail here:
A former tennis pro who fraudulently brought four children from the African nation of Togo to the U.S. and forcing them to work as slaves in his Michigan home was sentenced Monday to more than 11 years in federal prison.
Jean-Claude Toviave, who didn’t apologize when provided the opportunity to speak at his sentencing hearing in Detroit, also was ordered to pay two of the children $60,000 each. Prosecutors asked U.S. District Judge Arthur Tarnow to sentence Toviave to the maximum sentence within the guidelines, and he did, handing down a 135-month sentence, with credit for about two years of time served.
The four children emigrated from Togo in 2006 with fraudulent immigration paperwork that listed them as being Toviave’s biological children, which they are not. He enrolled some of them in middle school when they arrived. They now range in age from teenagers to young adults.
The victims said Toviave beat them with toilet plungers, broomsticks and electrical cords and starved them if they didn’t follow his orders. They were forced to vacuum, iron, cook, clean and shine shoes at the home in Ypsilanti, near Ann Arbor, for nearly five years until January 2011.
In a court filing, prosecutors said the 6-foot-3, 230-pound Toviave, who was a tennis pro in Togo until 1990, ‘savagely’ beat the children if their chores weren’t finished or completed to his satisfaction.
The nation of Togo has a large Islamic community, but the largest state religion is the “indigenous belief” system, which is typically animist, and other witchdoctor stuff. In other words, an even more stone-age religion than Islam. Just more proof that Africa is hell.
