Federal judge frees radical imam

We are often our own worst enemy when it comes to Islamic terrorism. Our laws are civilized and good, but we are dealing with uncivilized and bad people when we deal with the radical Muslims and the law is working to help them kill us.

I know that sounds extreme on my part but just consider this: a radical Muslim imam, considered to be so dangerous that he was kept in shackles and assigned his own guard while being held in John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Seminole County, Florida, was cut loose by U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell. 

The imam, a former gang leader, is Marcus Dwayne Robertson. The judge said of Robertson that he believes him to be a "very bad man," but that federal prosecutors were "woefully inadequate" in making the case to keep him incarcerated. He had already served 4 years.

Robertson is a former U.S. Marine trained in special operations. He had been the head of a violent New York gang who called themselves "Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves." He then disappeared from the New York scene and resurfaced as a radical imam in Florida where he turned young men to religion (Islam) and sent them overseas to fight as terrorists.

The charges that got him locked up were gun and tax fraud convictions but he was so dangerous that the prison kept him in shackles at all times, and when he was being transported to court, he was given a seven-car caravan of armed federal marshals as escorts. He probably would have preferred a larger caravan of men on camels holding swords and shouting "Allahu Akbar."

Efforts were made to add an additional 10 years to his sentence, based on the enhanced terrorism charges under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, but the prosecutor must have learned from the OJ Simpson prosecutor on how to screw up a case, and Robertson was able to walk based on time served.

We are a nation of laws, and that's a good thing, but organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) use our laws to their advantage, and their advantage is, unfortunately, our disadvantage. CAIR does everything they can to keep us from watching questionable mosques and people who attend them. They use "lawfare" to force us to cave in on their demands, and have even gotten to the point where the FBI is no longer allowed to refer to terrorism as terrorism.
