Here’s another aspiring young politician in Holyoke doing Holyoke things:
A resident who plans to run for School Committee was arrested for breaking and entering after a woman arrived home at 66 Ely St. and found a side gate open and a window screen on the ground, police and court records said. Faizul J. Sibdhanny, 19, of 65 Taylor St. was charged with breaking and entering into a building in the nighttime to commit a felony in the incident on July 18 at 9:52 p.m., police and court records said.
According to the police report, a woman who lives in an upstairs apartment arrived home to find a gate on the side of the house that leads to the backyard open. In the back of the house she noticed a first-floor window screen broken and laying on the ground and the window open, the report said. She went to the front of the house and upstairs to her apartment. She then returned to the first floor and saw Sibdhanny standing in the first-floor apartment with the door open. She went outside and saw Sibdhanny come out from behind the house and get into a black Mercedes, which drove away, the report said.
The woman called the man who lives in the first-floor apartment who arrived shortly after police did. The man said he was friends with Sibdhanny but didn’t give him permission to enter his apartment, the report said.
A few days later Faizul wrote an email to Masslive, in which he “apologized” for “finding himself in this situation”:
School Committee candidate Faizul J. Sibdhanny Jr. said Friday he was “disappointed and embarrassed” after having been arrested by police July 18 for allegedly breaking and entering.
“Many people who know me well have expressed how surprised they are and how unbelievable this sounds. I would like to say that I am very disappointed and embarrassed that I found myself in this situation and I would like to apologize to my supporters for this. These allegations are false and are not, in any way, a representation my character,” Sibdhanny said in an email.
I hate when I find myself breaking and entering into someone else’s apartment before running out of there in my Mercedes. Oh, and it’s perfectly normal for a 19 year old kid to drive a Mercedes. Nothing shady bout that whatsoever.
We weren’t even gonna write about this story because at the end of the day he’s not actually gonna be elected, so what does it matter?
Then we got this in our inbox:
So we gave him a chance to explain how he was “set up” after being found in an apartment he doesn’t live in, after popping open the window in the back:
Oh yea, that sounds believable.
So let me get this straight. The former friend who lives in the apartment called you to come pick him up. Faizul rolls up in his Mercedes, texts the kid (who isn’t there) to let him know that he’s outside. The cops then arrest him for no reason. Oh, and the “asshole” cop only arrested him because he’s racist against Muslims and thinks they’re all terrorists.
He’s a crook, he hates the police, and he’s using identity politics to victimize himself. In other words, he’s gonna fit in just fine in Holyoke politics.
He claims that his former friend is “jealous” of him, and has “dreamt of living my life”:
Oh yea, his former friend seems real normal too. Obviously he is insanely jealous that he’s not nearly as successful as this recent high school graduate who lives with his parents in Holyoke.
As for his allegations that the Holyoke PD is not doing their job and fucking up a lot (which is a smart thing to say when you’re running for office), here’s the proof he offers:
A couple of his 19 year old malcontent friends sharing unconfirmed, one sided anecdotes. I’m convinced!!!
Faizul apparently believes the police are intentionally going after him because his success and riches have made him a target:
And of course he’s a big time supporter of Mayor Alex “chillin with my homies” Morse:
Faizul has issued an official press release on his Facebook page about the incident as well:
Yup, the witness who lives upstairs made up the whole story about seeing him in the apartment and the window he popped out in order to illegally break and enter. Probably because he’s a Muslim. This is what it’s like to live in Trump’s Islamophobic America.
Once again, his friend is just jealous of his unbridled successes of this self-proclaimed ‘rising star”:
Of course what most likely happened here is this “former friend” didn’t return an XBox game and stopped returning Faizul’s texts. So he took it upon himself to pull an OJ and go get his shit back. Because if his story was true he easily could’ve cleared it up by just showing the cops the text messages from his friend, asking him to meet at the apartment at that time.
The lesson here is, if you’re gonna message us to write a story, make sure you’re the good guy in the story. Because we always do our research, and the truth always comes out when we do our due diligence. Better luck next time Faizul.
