New Mexico: Judge Sarah Backus is allowing five Islamic extremists, who were charged with child abuse, to be freed on bail with ankle monitors, despite a state prosecutor’s request that they be detained. The suspects were arrested after a compound was raided, and 11 starving children were discovered in squalid conditions. The suspects are accused of training these children in firearms and school shootings. Judge Backus cited the lack of criminal history of the defendants and said the state did not provide sufficient evidence showing they would be a danger to the community if released.

One of the suspects, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, is accused of abducting his 4-year-old son, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, who suffered from brain damage from birth and seizures. The remains of a small boy were found on the compound, but have not yet been identified. Court officials say the child allegedly died during a “ritual” in the New Mexico desert witnessed by children who were told the victim would be resurrect as Jesus. The grandfather, Imam Siraj Wahhaj, was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. -GEG

Five alleged Muslim extremists who are accused of training children to carry out school shootings have been released on bond after one of their attorneys complained that the men were only being targeted because they’re “black and Muslim,” as opposed to “white and Christian.”

Judge Sarah Backus said that prosecutors didn’t prove the alleged jihadists were “a danger to the community” and released them on a $20,000 “signature bond,” which means they won’t even have to pay the fee unless they violate the conditions of their release.

“The state argued that the 11 children at the compound were being trained to use guns as they prepared to attack teachers, law enforcement and others in institutions that the group considered corrupt,” reports the Albuquerque Journal.

Eleven malnourished children were found on the property while another child had died at his father’s hand “during a religious ritual intended to expel religious demons from his body.”

However, one attorney argued that the men were victims of Islamophobia and racism, commenting, “The NRA right now are telling us that guns are a good thing and that we should be training our teenagers to go ahead and use them, but now that we have someone who’s actually do that, and they’re not white, and they’re not Christian we think there’s some nefarious plan.”
