Five alleged Muslim extremists who were captured at a desert compound with emaciated children they were training to carry out school shootings have all been granted bail, Reuters reported.
Siraj Wahhaj and four other Muslim adults were found with 11 children aged 1 to 15 who had been starved and abused and the corpse of an infant, believed to his son, killed in an Islamic ritual were granted bail by a liberal New Mexico judge who is now receiving death threats.
The local community in New Mexico has been described as being “baffled” by the decision of the judge to grant bail to Wahhaj, the son of a prominent New York Imam and the four other suspects, the Rolling Stone reports.
The presiding Judge, Sarah Backus, reasoned that the state did not prove the defendants were dangers to the community or flight risks Rolling Stone reported.
