According to a video, which has been circulating via social media since early 2018, an American teenager who killed a Muslim refugee for raping his 7-year old sister has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.
It suggests that liking and sharing equate to a “yes” answer to the question “would you set him free?”.
However, the claim in the video is an outright lie.
Dylan Schumaker, the sobbing young man featured in the video, did not kill a Muslim refugee in retaliation for raping his sister. Instead, in 2013, he beat his girlfriend’s 23-month-old son to death. Schumaker, who was 16 years old at the time of the offence, was later sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for his heinous crime.
The handcuffed man shown later in the video also did not kill a Muslim refugee for raping his sister. Instead, the pictured man, Osvaldo Rivera, raped a 12-year-old girl and then killed the girl’s 6-year-old brother by slashing his throat. Rivera will spend the rest of his days in prison.
Both of these men deserve the sentences they received and certainly should not be set free. Neither killed any refugees, Muslim or otherwise. Neither man was protecting a family member from being attacked when they committed their violent crimes. Instead, they WERE the attackers.
