Kirsters Baish| While we would all like to believe that our country’s Justice system is flawless and that justice is always served, this is not always the case. This can be proven simply by looking at what just went down in the New Mexico compound case. It has been reported that a district judge has dropped all charges against three out of the five adult defendants from the compound.
All five of the defendants were taken into custody by police and charged in July with a total of 11 counts of child abuse. Authorities claimed that all of the defendants were involved in training children found on the compound to carry out school shootings.
Even though there was compelling evidence against the suspects, District Judge Susan Backus released three defendants on a signature bond, which means that they didn’t even have to pay to get out of jail.
Police then released even more evidence, claiming that two of the defendants, Jany Leveille and Siraj Wahhaj, had placed a threat against Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.
Because he was previously wanted on charges involving the abduction of his son in the state of Georgia, Wahhaj was not released.
Leveille was being held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement as she had been in the United Stated illegally for the past two decades.
Authorities have charged two suspects in the murder of Wahhaj’s three-year-old son. The boy’s body was also found on the New Mexico compound.
From The Daily Caller:
Lucas Morton, Subhanna Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj were charged with child abuse after authorities found the remains of the 3-year-old in August. The child, who lived in Georgia, was reported missing by his mother months earlier, reported KOAT Action News.
Additional charges stem from 11 other children who were found at the compound in squalid conditions. At least one of the children was being taught to handle firearms in preparation of a mass shooting, according to The Washington Post. The state maintains that the compound was being used as a training center for children, with the intention of attacking schools, governmental buildings and law enforcement facilities.
District Judge Emilio Chavez dropped all of the charges against Morton, Subhanna Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj after appearing in court on Wednesday because the state failed to indict them within the allotted 10-day window.
