Imagine the horror of taking a taxi only to realize you are trapped in that vehicle with a driver who is both a terrorist and a cannibal who then starts asking you about the taste of human meat. That is what happened to one woman in Australia, who took a Uber taxi ride only to have her driver start telling her that he was a member of ISIS and among the deeds he did was to cannibalize his victims, after which he asked her if she had tasted it also.
Clearly disturbed by his behavior, the woman made an excuse to get out and call police, but in spite of her pleas the police did nothing and let the man go:
Uber has suspended a driver in Australia while police investigate allegations that he told a passenger he led an organisation related to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) and planned to blow up Parliament House, the ride-hailing company said on Monday.
The passenger, a woman who declined to be identified out of fear for her safety, said she was heading home from downtown Canberra after a night out with friends when she caught an Uber early on Sunday morning.
According to the woman, the driver said he was from Pakistan and asked if she had “ever eaten human flesh”.
He said he planned to blow up a Canberra shopping mall as well as Parliament House and told her he was not taking her to her home on the outskirts of the city but to the town of Cooma, 60 miles to the south, the woman said.
She said she told the driver to pull over at a petrol station so she could use the toilet, and called the police emergency number from there. Two police cars arrived about 10 minutes later, she said.
Police said they searched the Uber car but found nothing suspicious. Police drove the woman home and did not arrest the driver.
“Police conducted initial background checks and established there was no threat to the public or the complainant,” a police statement said.
It said an investigation of the woman’s allegations was continuing with the involvement of national police and security agencies. (source)
