Because the original story of five people, including a son and two daughters of an imam who was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Centre being arrested in New Mexico at a remote compound where they allegedly trained children to become school shooters was not weird enough.
First comes the bail: “Judge Sarah Backus became the target of a backlash following her ruling Monday that prosecutors failed to show the defendants, arrested at the compound on suspicion of training 11 children to use firearms for an anti-government mission, posed a threat to the community, instead ruling that they were entitled to be released on bail pending trial… Backus wrote in her ruling that she was concerned by the ‘troubling facts’ presented by prosecutors, but said they had not shown by clear and convincing evidence that the claims of school shooting training was valid, or that the group was a danger to the community.” They’re certainly danger to children, who have been neglected and starved, while one died and was buried on site. Backus has now received death threats, which doesn’t help anyone as some people are yet to learn that two wrongs don’t make it right.
Second comes this revelation: “A Haitian woman who was charged with child abuse at a New Mexico compound has been taken into custody by immigration authorities after living in the United States illegally for over 20 years, immigration officials said on Wednesday… Jany Leveille, 35, was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Taos County, New Mexico, on Tuesday and must appear before a judge to resolve her immigration status, according to a statement by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.” Leveille is the wife of the compound’s apparent leader, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of the New York imam, who also happens to be Linda Sarsour’s “mentor, motivator, and encourager”.
Third comes the demolition: the “recreational vehicle”, which was at the centre of the compound, has been removed by the authorities and much of the compound itself, including an underground tunnel where the body of a deceased child was buried, appears to have been bulldozed – while items such as bullets and bullet-proof vests still litter the site. It is bizarre, to say the least, that a crime scene in an ongoing investigation and a possible terrorism court case has been for all the practical purposes destroyed and its remains are now left unprotected and accessible to all, i.e. completely useless from an evidentiary point of view.

Please somebody tell me that the authorities know what they’re actually doing – and that what they’re doing is actually legit.
