Theblaze.com reports in part: Breaking: Judge makes stunning decision in Muslim compound case after charges of racism
In a hearing Monday, a New Mexico judge found that suspects in a bizarre child abuse case were not a danger to the public, and released them on bond.
Defense attorney blames Islamophobia
Two Muslim men and three women are charged with 11 counts of child abuse each after police raided their compound in New Mexico and discovered 11 malnourished children living in squalor.
Their lawyer argued that there was a double standard in the case because his clients were Muslims. He argued that if they had been Christian and white, “we might not be here today.”
Despite law enforcement authorities saying that they believe that the children were being trained to attack innocents, and that the adults were radicalized, Judge Sarah Backus released the suspects.
Prosecutors also said they obtained a letter from one of the suspects telling his brother to come to the compound and die like a martyr.
The lawyer for the suspects said that there was no evidence that they were planning any kind of attacks.
Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe testified that they found children holding boxes of ammunition, and that one child was found with a gun.

“Their lawyer argued that there was a double standard in the case because his clients were Muslims. He argued that if they had been Christian and white, ‘we might not be here today.’”
Seriously? If they had been Christian and white, stockpiling weapons and plotting school shootings, with the ringleader being the son of one of the most respected Christian preachers in the country, there wouldn’t have been news coverage of anything else for weeks. There would have been feature stories in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal. CNN and MSNBC would be running special reports on toxic Christianity and the crisis in the churches.
This incident, on the other hand, received very little coverage, and hardly any that touched on the Islamic aspects of the story. But Muslim claims of victimhood are so polished and reflexive by now, and the Leftist acceptance of them so matter-of-fact and instinctive, that Judge Sarah Backus fell right into line. We can only hope that no one dies because of her folly.
Tragically, New Mexico Judge Sarah Backus agreed with the defense counsels’ politicized false narrative that Islamophobia was at play. If this truly had been “white Christians” planning to attack our schools the American media would have skewered them 24/7 and she would have followed leftist bias and denied bail. These Muslim jihadis got special treatment.
Judge Backus’ dreadful decision may embolden others to believe that American courts will not take them serious if they are caught before they kill innocent Americans and martyr themselves.
Judge Backus’ disastrous decision made political correctness the priority over public safety.
