Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox News’ ‘The Ingraham Angle’ To Discuss New Mexico Judge Granting Bail to 5 Adults Accused of Training Kids To Carry Out Terror Attacks
According to Dhillon:
It’s a $20,000 signature bond, meaning that if they don’t show up for their court date, they have to promise to pay the government $20,000, which is obviously ridiculous. If you have somebody who is potentially going to be put away for life on terror charges, a $20,000 promise-to-pay is not a deterrent for them to flee or commit more crimes. This is as a result of New Mexico’s very liberal bail law. They did bail reform in 2016, and the one of the Justices of the Supreme Court added some additional conditions. So at the very early stage, the prosecutors have to show “clear and convincing evidence” that the person is a flight risk or a danger to the community. Let’s review the evidence here. You have 11 children who are starving and being trained, according to prosecutors, to commit crimes including terror crimes, rapid charging of guns, and are being abused. You have a dead child, you have numerous weapons, you have hundreds of feet of tunnel under this compound, and you have somebody who is being held on a kidnapping charge in another jurisdiction. So if this isn’t clear and convincing evidence that, there’s a flight risk and there is a potential risk of the community, I don’t know what it is. The judge went out of her way to say to the prosecutors, well, this seems like an “unconventional lifestyle” that you are describing here. But I don’t really see the danger to the community. I mean, it’s crazy. Anybody watching this knows that it’s nonsense.
