Jupiter Paulsen’s tragedy began on June 4th, 2021, when she left her home to visit her mother’s house. That’s when African immigrant Arthur Prince Kollie allegedly began following her. Then, without provocation, Kollie allegedly stabbed and strangled the cornered white child in a savage attack that lasted 25 minutes.
Kollie attempted to escape when a witness confronted him, and he was filmed in a store trying to change out of his bloody clothing.
Jupiter was taken to hospital, where she died of her catastrophic injuries. She was 14 years old.
Since his arrival in the U.S., Kollie has been a habitual offender. After serving a one-year sentence for a violent felony in 2020, he was arrested again for unlawful possession of a firearm, discharging that firearm, and drug possession. Court records show that on May 7, 2021, less than a month before Paulsen’s murder, Kollie was sentenced to two years in prison, but was instead released.
News that Republican appointed Judge John Irby is allowing Kollie’s attorney to attempt an insanity defense has only exacerbated fears that Jupiter will never receive justice.
North Dakotan residents can thank their state’s refugee resettlement program for the arrival of Liberian aliens like Kollie. Despite large controversy surrounding the program, Republican Governor Doug Burgum continues to ignore the growing issue.
On Saturday June 4th, the anniversary of Kollie’s crime, some 40-50 people led by local grassroots organizer Peter Tefft and National Justice Party chairman Michael Peinovich marched through Fargo’s downtown. The peaceful protest (Video) started at the victim’s home and ended with a picket in front of the Fargo courthouse. It was shadowed by a small group of self-identified “Antifa” members (Video), who mocked and jeered the white activists and the family they had come to support.
