Judge Sarah Backus allowed 5 jihadists to walk free. She did it because the prosecutors would not have asked for high bail for any other religion. Sure, they were training kids to shoot up schools but after all, boys will be boys.
Some of you think they had to put up $20,000 a piece to get out of jail. That would be wrong. First of all, a “signature bond” isn’t really a bond. Rather it says if you violate the terms of the release you owe the bond. But if the five of them skip the country, how do you collect? You don’t. She knows if they go out and commit an act of terror, the Democrats will circle the wagons around her.
“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,” read the order. “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.”
“The state alleges there was a big plan afoot but the state has not shown to my satisfaction by clear and convincing evidence what in fact that plan was,” Backus said Monday, CNN reported. “The state wants me to make a leap and it’s a large leap and that would be to hold people in jail without bond based on — again — troubling facts but I didn’t hear any choate plan that was being alleged by the state.”
That’s funny. Isn’t that exactly why Paul Manafort has been held in solitary confinement?
