The Daily Mail of London has reported that Barack Obama's 'Uncle Omar' is being held in police custody allegedly after narrowly avoiding crashing into a police car. Uncle Omar was allegedly driving under the influence. Apparently, there is an outstanding order for Uncle Omar's arrest due to the fact that he had already been ordered deported by an immigration judge. Sounds like another one of those serious offenders that this President has been so adamant to deport.
What I find most curious about this story is that there is barely a mention of it in the U.S. press. So far I've only seen it reported in Australia and the United Kingdom. Very curious indeed.
I have to wonder if Uncle Omar is a candidate for the favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion?
