New Mexico Five Released on Bail, Compound Destroyed by Authorities

5 men and women released on bail in New Mexico

Five Extremists granted bail and then "New Mexico compound mysteriously destroyed by authorities"...

The judge presiding over the case involving the five Muslim “extremists” arrested last week in New Mexico has granted bail.

Judge Sarah Backus, a Democrat, decided to release the two men and three women on $20,000 bail Tuesday despite what she called “troubling facts.” The New Mexico five were arrested last week when 11 children were discovered living in decrepit conditions. The children were malnourished and were being trained in the use of firearms.

Reaction to This Decision Has Garnished Negative Attention From the Right

Can you believe Judge Sarah Backus let these dangerous Muslim extremists out of jail already? They were training children how to execute school shootings—and she lets them out with an ankle bracelet. One child is already dead. That sounds crazy to me.

The judge in New Mexico who let the jihadis go free used to be a public defender. In San Francisco.

The Muslim extremist from the jihadist compound in New Mexico released on bail. Judge says he's not a "threat to the community."

He possibly killed 3yo son.

He kept 11 other kids in squalor & trained them to commit school shootings.

How is THAT not a threat to the community?

Backus provided this explanation before granting bail:

“What I’ve heard here today is troubling, definitely. Troubling facts about numerous children in far from ideal circumstances and individuals who are living in a very unconventional way,” Backus said.

The Activist Judge Accused Prosecutors of Anti-muslim Discrimination


Here’s part of the judge’s order denying the prosecutors’ motion to deny bail to the #NewMexicoCompound adults.

Judge Sarah Backus essentially accuses the authorities of promoting religious discrimination against Muslims.

“The defendants are apparently of the Muslim faith,” said Backus. “The Court was asked by the State to make a finding of dangerousness and a finding of no conditions of release could ensure the safety of the community. The State apparently expected the court to take the individuals’ faith into account in making such a determination. The Court has never been asked to take any other person’s faith into account in making a determination of dangerousness. The Court is not aware of any law that allows the Court to take a person’s faith into consideration in making a dangerousness determination.”

Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, the three-year-old son of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj who was the leader of the group, died as a result of ritualistic exorcism, according to the FBI.

Wahhaj is also the son of Imam Siraj Wahhaj, leader of the Muslim Alliance of North America and the head of a mosque in Brooklyn, New York. The elder Wahhaj was a character witness for the blind sheikh, one of the unindicted co-conspirators in the 1993 WTC bombing.

Compound Destroyed by Authorities

To make the story even more bizarre and troubling, NBC reports the "New Mexico compound has been mysteriously destroyed by authorities." Erasing evidence? Hiding more crimes? New Right Network will keep you updated as this story continues to develop.
