Judge Mihm said in rendering a sentence not as strong as a low level drug dealer or an ordinary citizens using an unregistered gun to protect themselves, "al-Marri was a risk to 're-associate with the people who brought him here'." (Peoria)
Judge Mihm also said "I don't believe you are a lackey. That would insult your intelligence and to the commitment you made when you came here (Peoria) as a sleeper agent for al-Quaida. I believe you have not totally rejected what you did, and that you would do it again after you go home, (where is home and how long will he stay home?) whether here or somewhere else. That remains to be seen."
I doubt whet er he stays in Peoria unless some left leaning liberal professors at Bradley recruit him to teach here. More likely if he stays it will be in Dearborn or Detroit where he would be welcomed with open arms.
After the weak sentencing of the "family" man; nice picture of he and 4 of his 5 kids, (where was a picture of his wife?) that appeared today in the JS, al-Marri will spend his time in prison on "good behavior") while he quietly recruits other bitter inmates to his Jihad against the stupid infidel. The picture in the JS was a nice picture same as the worst Mafia leaders would have taken with their families.
It is difficult to determine where this administration is leading us other than government domination, but there is no doubt that the citizenry will be easier to handle as we grow more pacifist and apathetic. I wonder how many letters of marriage proposals this terrorist bent intellect received while he was at GITMO? If he is still married to ONE woman, many would not care.
Let's hope that Judge Mihm's decision doesn't set a pattern of sentencing of terrorists now lucky to be tried under a civilian court of law. Civilian instead of military? How could Obama get away with that?
Wake up, America.
