The Saudis have a longstanding practice of spiriting Saudi citizens accused of crimes in the United States (and Canada) out of this country. After all, what respect should Muslims have for Infidel laws? But the U.S. government should realize that whatever the pragmatic considerations may be for continuing the sham alliance with Saudi Arabia, this is not the way a friend and ally behaves.
“Man suspected in shooting of motorist near Georgetown thought to have fled country,” by Noelle McGee, The News-Gazette, January 29, 2019:
DANVILLE — Vermilion County authorities believe a Georgetown man who’s wanted in an incident earlier this month where a passing motorist was struck by a stray bullet has fled to the Middle East.
Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Hartshorn said an arrest warrant with a $10 million bond has been issued for Rod Al-Ruwaily, 20, in connection with the Jan. 16 shooting of a woman who was hit while driving on Illinois 1 north of Georgetown….
The shooting occurred around 6 p.m. and stemmed from a dispute at a residence in the area.
Hartshorn said investigators determined that Al-Ruwaily fired multiple shots toward a vehicle in the driveway of his residence in the 1700 block of North Main Street, one of which hit an unrelated vehicle heading south on the state highway.
A 28-year-old female in the passing vehicle was struck by a bullet. Hartshorn said she remains in the hospital, recovering from her injuries.
He added that investigators think Al-Ruwaily fled the country after the incident and is currently in Saudi Arabia.
