3 Suspects In NM Jihad Compound Released – Judge Drops All Charges
OK, say what you want, but if you are following the New Mexico Islamic jihad compound story, where a 3-year-old was killed and several children were being trained to engage in mass school shootings, then you know this smells of a government coverup and more and more each day, that’s exactly what it looks like. The latest round of evidence is that a district judge dropped all charges against three suspects and set them free after the district attorney failed to file for a preliminary hearing within 10 days. He then didn’t even bother to show up for court.
First, Fox News reports:
Three suspects tied to a New Mexico compound where alleged Muslim extremists reportedly trained children to be school shooters were released from custody on Wednesday, hours after a judge dismissed all of the charges against them, Fox News confirmed.
District Judge Emilio Chavez on Wednesday dismissed charges against three of the five defendants — Lucas Morton, Subhannah Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj — ruling that authorities violated the state’s “10-day rule.”
Child abuse charges against them were dropped because prosecutors missed the 10-day limit for an evidentiary hearing to establish probable cause.
During a separate hearing Wednesday, Judge Jeff McElroy dismissed the same charges against fellow defendants, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Jany Leveille. However, charges leveled against them on Friday, in connection to the death of a missing 3-year-old boy, remained.
I’ll give some credit here to former FBI special agent Chad Jenkins, who came on Fox News to discuss the issue. While Fox News posted that these were “extremist Muslims,” Jenkins rightly said they were “devout followers of Islam” and Muhammad. Take a listen because this is extremely rare to hear in the media. I almost fell out of my chair!
Local News KOB4 added:
Both judges blamed state prosecutors and District Attorney Donald Gallegos for failing to follow New Mexico law, which states defendants are entitled to a preliminary hearing within 10 days of an arrest.
“I’m just going to say once again that I am very disappointed,” said Judge McElroy. “The court is being caught between very public, very shocking information and a complete failure to follow proper procedures prosecuting the case.”
Prosecutors tried explaining to the judge that they didn’t hold a preliminary hearing because they expected the defendants to be released from jail. If that would have happened, prosecutors would have had a total of 60 days to hold a preliminary hearing.
“What I would argue is that every day we expected them to be released from custody because they’re on an unsecured bond,” said one of the prosecutors.
The suspects were not released because they couldn’t find housing in Taos County, one of the conditions of release.
Minutes after Wahhaj and Leveille had the original 11 child abuse charges dropped, they had a ‘first appearance’ for new charges, of first-degree child abuse resulting in death and second-degree felony conspiracy to commit child abuse.
The defendants did not enter a plea.
Wahhaj and Leveille remain in jail until September 4 when a motion by the prosecutors will be heard by the court.
Isn’t this all incredibly suspicious?
You have a jihad compound where the body of a 3-year-old boy, which belonged to one of the jihadis, was found. They were training children to murder American children in school shootings. Then, the same jihadi’s father is the imam tied to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Then, you have New Mexico judge releasing the suspects from jail. Then, you have the compound being destroyed by bulldozing. And now this!
One would think this is a national security issue, but then we have to ask where the federal government is in all of this, don’t we?
Call it what you want but this cannot possibly be incompetence or coincidence. If you actually think that, then I question whether you should be voting in elections.
