A New Mexico judge all dismissed charges against three suspects linked to a rural compound where Islamists were reportedly training children to become radical terrorists.
“Child abuse charges against Lucas Morton, Subhannah Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj were dropped because prosecutors missed the 10-day limit for an evidentiary hearing to establish probable cause,” according to Fox News.
The same charges were dropped against Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Jany Leveille, the other two defendants connected with the compound, but charges relating to a missing boy whose remains were found on the property are still on the table.
Any seasoned prosecutor knows the law regarding how and when such documents must be filed in a criminal case. Dropping the ball, especially on such a high profile case, begs the question of whether this was a mistake on behalf of the government’s attorneys, or whether it was done purposefully.
All five suspects were arrested on August 3, when police raided their remote compound in northern New Mexico.
According to prosecutors, the Amelia, New Mexico compound where 11 children were rescued from squalor last week was being used to train the children to become school shooters.
“The father of a missing Georgia boy was training children at a New Mexico compound to commit school shootings, prosecutors said in court documents obtained Wednesday,” according to Associated Press. “The documents say Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound near the Colorado border where 11 hungry children were found in filthy conditions.”
Ibn Wahhaj is the father of Abdul-ghani Wahhaj who went missing from Jonesboro, GA in December. The police believe that they have found the remains of the boy on the compound, but he has yet to be positively identified.
Ibn Wahhaj is described as a “Muslim extremist.”
Ibn Wahhaj was arrested at compund with another adult male, Lucas Morten. Three women were also arrested in connection with the compound raid. Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, Subhannah Wahhaj, 35, and Jany Leveille, 35, are now inmates in the Taos Adult Detention Center.
Authorities have since positively identified the remains of the boy, and Wahhaj and Leveille were charged with abuse of a child resulting in death. The charge carries a potential life sentence.
President Trump Rules Out Deploying Troops to Restore Order, Even as Riots Show No Signs of Slowing Down
Trump has opted to not show strength in the face of this crisis.
Just one day after President Donald Trump said he was willing to send military forces into states across the country to put down riots, he is reportedly backing off of the idea.
According to administration officials, Trump is happy with the result of yesterday’s enforcement measures during the riots – which included law enforcement officials being shot and police getting hit by SUVs. He will not be using the Insurrection Act to put troops on the streets to restore order anytime soon.
“The law is absolutely still on the table if things get really bad, but as of now he doesn’t think it’s going to have to go that far,” an administration official said to Axios.
“As President Trump has said, we cannot allow the voices of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by angry mobs, which is why the President will continue to take lawful, decisive action to stop the violence and restore the security of all Americans,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.
Trump made the pivot after RINO Republicans whined about his harsh rhetoric as the country burns due to extreme left-wing riots.
“I don’t think the Pentagon’s keen on getting brought into this unless they absolutely have to. We need to restore order, but using active duty military troops in circumstances like this is a fairly rare occurrence,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Tuesday.
“I would prefer that these things be handled by the state and local authorities,” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said. “You want to de-escalate, rather than escalate.”
Yesterday, Trump declared that he would show zero tolerance for any more rioting and looting in the streets:
President Donald Trump announced tonight that he will deploy military force in cities that are gripped by riots if blue-state governors do not get their acts in order and do so soon.
“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people,” Trump said in his speech. “I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.”
Trump made it clear that he is an “ally of all peaceful protesters” who are protesting about injustices committed against George Floyd, who died during a police encounter with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. However, Trump will not allow the rioters to disgrace Floyd’s memory with their looting and wanton property destruction.
Trump announced that he would deploy “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers” in order to restore order in American cities. These forces could be deployed as soon as tonight considering how blue-state governors have done so poorly at keeping their states safe.
Earlier in the day, Trump had criticized governors throughout the country for their “weak” response to the growing violence.
President Trump has backed off at least temporarily from his boasts, showing yet again that his bark is much worse than his bite.
