A commentary on the alleged kids’ training compound in New Mexico

That’s it.  I’ve had it.  Are we just not going to talk about it?  Someone needs to, because I’m at the point where I’m just extraordinarily fed up.  This insane case about the supposed compound training grounds in New Mexico that was allegedly mowed down by the government?  No?  Doesn’t sound familiar?

There is so much to this story so let’s break it down.

The ‘Dirty’ Compound

Every media outlet broadcasted people being arrested following a crackdown of what was labelled as an extremely unhygienic training ground for kids learning how to commit school shootings.

In an official comment by Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe, he claimed that the kids were demonstrably malnourished, left with dirty water and in dirty rags for clothing.

As if the situation wasn’t shady enough, the Sheriff also stated that when he got there, he arrested the supposed owner of the establishment, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, who was allegedly carrying a heavily armed AR-15, with four pistols, and five fully loaded thirty round magazines in the intimate vicinity.

The wholly unclean establishment was hidden by wooden pallets, tires and other garbage. In a filthy trailer on the training grounds, some potatoes and rice could be found.

Police began investigations on the compound after looking for Siraj Ibn Wahhaj’s son, who went missing under suspicious circumstances. Investigators on the case would eventually find eleven children, ages one to fifteen, being held hostage in abhorrently poor conditions, as well as the dead remains of the three-year-old missing boy.

Was It Radicalism?

The body was discarded around the compound grounds, as if the child meant nothing. We still do not really know the full story of how the young boy actually passed, but the circumstances are indeed questionable.

Siraj was said to have wanted to perform a religious exorcism on his three-year-old boy.  He was convinced that his young son, with dire medical needs—such as struggling with seizures and a severe walking disability—was possessed by the devil.

Sheriff Hogrefe further commented on the religious extremist links related to the case. The associations are a lot more eerie than what meets the eye. Siraj Ibn Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam of the same name.

Wahhaj Sr. is renowned for being an unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Centre bombings. Otherwise, Wahhaj Sr. is also known for being a professional character witness for Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, a man charged with plotting terror attacks in the U.S. in 1995.

Additionally, Wahhaj Sr. is considered to be one of Linda Sarsour’s mentors.  Sarsour is notorious for expressing incitement to wage jihad against President Trump in America.

Following the crackdown, the New Mexico police allegedly destroyed the compound, and out of the five suspects arrested, three were released.

Authorities in Trouble With the People

People were furious, threatening and cursing authorities in charge of the case. The prosecutors in charge allegedly mismanaged the case and missed a significant deadline for a hearing to establish probable cause, enabling three of the suspects to be released.

In the most recent circumstances of the controversy, the New Mexico District Attorney (DA) is still trying to find a way to prosecute the suspects.  You can see the DA’s full statement below:

I sincerely wish the best for our world, but something really odd is going on and I am clearly not the only one who wants to get down to the bottom of it.

What I cannot understand is how people are not out in arms protesting this madness! My guess is… If it doesn’t have to do with Trump, Planned Parenthood, Israel-Palestine, or the fringe-right, then it’s not worth protesting.
