ISIS Terrorist Jailed for Assaulting Cop Asks to be Released From Jail

Ismail Hamed, 18, has asked an Arizona judge to release him from pre-trial confinement.

An ISIS-supporting Arizona man who was arrested after a dramatic confrontation with a police officer is asking a judge to release him from jail before his trial on charges of aggravated assault and terrorism.

Ismail Hamed initiated a dramatic confrontation with a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Deputy after making a call to the deputy in which he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. After a police officer arrived at his location in Fountain Hills, Arizona, Hamed began throwing rocks at the officer and brandishing a knife. He was shot by the officer after approaching him, and entered police custody after receiving treatment at an area hospital.

The entire shocking incident and Hamed’s phone call to the police in which he pledged allegiance to ISIS were caught on tape. Watch here:

I’m owing my allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria… I just want a cop to come real quick, and I want to deal with them.

Chilling.

Now, Hamed’s attorney Mark Mendoza is asking an Arizona judge to release the 18-year old man, who was previously a high school student, from jail. He claimed that Hamed is having a difficult time in jail. “During his incarceration [Hamed] has endured many difficulties being away from his family, including isolation, stress/anxiety, and harassment from others in the jail,” the lawyer claimed in a court filing.

It’s unsurprising that some of Arizona’s jail inmates might not take too kindly to an ISIS sympathizer in their midsts, but it’s a bit alarming that Hamed’s lawyers think he’s going to receive a ‘get-out-of-jail free’ card after orchestrating a poorly thought through terrorist plot. It’s possible Hamed’s plot was devised with the hopes of achieving martyrdom, but now the highly disturbed young man will face a lengthy prison sentence instead.
