New Mexico defendants

A state judge in New Mexico received thousands of death threats after she granted signature bonds to two men and three women who are accused of abusing and starving 11 children while training them to conduct school shootings.

Death threats flooded a Taos, New Mexico court on Tuesday after liberal Judge Sarah Backus granted "weak" bail for five Islamist terrorists accused of abusing and starving 11 children in squalid conditions at a compound near the Colorado border. The children were reportedly being trained to shoot up schools.

The dead body of a 4-year-old boy was removed from the compound after law enforcement officers raided the complex earlier this month in response to citizen tips that the children were being starved and abused.

Police did not disclose the boy's cause of death or whether he is the son of one of the defendants, Siraj Ibn Wahhai, 40, who is charged with kidnapping his 3-year-old son from Georgia in December.

Judge Backus set a $20,000 signature bail for Wahhaj, and his co-defendants Lucas Morton, 40, Jany Leveille, 35, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, and Subhannah Wahhaj, 35. Bail conditions include wearing ankle monitors and reporting to their parole officers.

Backus told the defendants they would pay $20,000 if their bail was revoked. Her lax bail conditions prompted outrage on social media and thousands of angry comments on news websites.

After Backus granted bond for the 5 terrorists, a Taos County Sheriff confirmed ICE agents took one of the female suspects into custody on an immigration violation.

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said Jany Leveille, who is originally from Haiti, was transferred Tuesday to custody of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, according to Sfgate.com.

Leveille, 35, is the mother of six of the children taken into custody following the raid.

Siraj Ibn Wahhai was also detained in custody Tuesday by federal officers on an outstanding warrant out of Georgia on suspicion of kidnapping his then-3-year-old son, who may be the boy whose remains were found inside the compound.

Backus defended her low bail for the suspected Islamist terrorists, saying the prosecutor's evidence against them was "troubling," but the prosecutor "did not articulate any specific threats to the community."

“What I’ve heard here today is troubling, definitely. Troubling facts about numerous children in far from ideal circumstances and individuals who are living in a very unconventional way,” Backus said on Tuesday.

Backus has a history of granting low bail for violent offenders. She recently granted a $10,000 bail to a man who punched out his girlfriend in a New Mexico hospital and slapped their newborn baby after she breastfed the newborn in front of a male doctor.

Death threats directed at Judge Backus prompted the shut down of the Taos County District Courthouse on Tuesday, as outraged citizens demanded her removal from the bench.

Backus was first appointed to the bench in June 2011 by Republican Governor Susana Martinez, who expressed regret at Backus' ruling on Tuesday.

“Unfortunately, it highlights how extreme the New Mexico Supreme Court has been in dictating pretrial release for all kinds of dangerous criminals,” Martinez said in a statement.

The backlash spread across the country as furious social media users vented their frustrations at judges like Backus who express their liberal activism from the bench.

A user commented on Heavy.com:

Perhaps we should thank Judge Bakus [sic] as she has helped conservatives much more than most people realize. Judge Bakus [sic] constitutes irrefutable evidence that the Left Wing (aka Democrats, Progressives, Socialist, etc) is completely insane and has no business being elected or appointed to any government position within the United States."

    I am not sure why you labeled her as a liberal but she does deserve the death threats.
    Those people should be in jail until their trials.

  • $255880266

    Absolutely disgusting. The FED should take over and put these animals in prison.

  • Elevated Soul

    There is no telling how many kids these terrorists have trained.This is why I don't support the Democratic party. White liberals are the enemy of America and so are the peons who follow them.

    MAGA!!!!

  • SpiceGirl

    the blood is on her hands!

  • Phillybruh

    I didn't read anything in this write up that said they were a threat to the community, the kids have been removed not too be returned. They are going to be monitored like any alleged criminal out on bail.

  • FOR COMMENT

    This judges hates her country and her state---there is no way i would let them out knowing the threat of them fleeing the country or causing harm to anyone else. mean while there is a prison full of black men doing life for nonviolent drug crimes...you give a liberal control of the court system and the city and watch what happens.. #detriot #stlouis #chicago

  • PhillyFacts

    They should've been held without bail; any crime against children in my opinion constitutes no bail. They're indeed a threat to children, and others a child was kidnapped and found dead in the compound, not to mention they were starving, and corrupting the morals of minors. Anyone who agrees with this judge, need their head checked they are a threat to society they wanted to shoot up schools tf. In addition, this judge was put in position by a Republican, but somehow the left still gets blamed; which leads me to the realization that most of the right is wackos...

  • PhillyFacts

    You can't be serious.....perhaps you need to read again, and try comprehending this time.....

  • FOR COMMENT

    like the illegals who get a court date and never to return? people who simple drug bust dont even get bail--you trippin

  • Phillybruh

    I did comprehend, the children have been removed and not to be returned. Most people who harm children in that manner are given bail.

  • SpillyNillie

    I would like to know what weak evidence was presented by the prosecution. The dead body of a child was found. That was enough, IMO, to increase the bail amount.

  • Phillybruh

    These people are going to be monitored? They will have ankle bracelets on.

  • Phillybruh

    And the father was held over by GA as that investigation continues

  • SpillyNillie

    He was held on suspicion of kidnapping. What about the murder of the child? It's likely the child didn't die from natural causes. Had he, why wasn't he taken to the hospital or the proper authorities called?

  • Phillybruh

    They haven't determined that yet. They can't charge with murder until they show one was committed.

  • SpillyNillie

    Reason why bail should've been denied.

  • PhillyFacts

    There was a dead child on the premises, that was kidnapped from Georgia... There should've been no bail set for this alone, not to mention they were training children to shoot up school, who's to say they won't kidnap more children or persuade, or train more children in violent/terrorist ops. Come on this is ludicrous; this is the problem in America if there were harsher penalties for violent crimes, and crimes against humanity there wouldn't be some much of it, and people would fear the consequences like in other countries.. However, we continue to give slaps on the wrist to the undeserving, mean while those you might have a chance of full rehabilitation are given the harsh penalties..

  • Phillybruh

    In this case he was granted bail because the crime allowed it. However he's being held over in another case which hasn't given him bail yet so he's not getting out.

  • Phillybruh

    Did you read the article. The father of the dead child has been held over in that case. He was granted bail on these charges in TX alone. When they show a murder was committed then he will be charged with that. Its the law.

  • SpillyNillie

    The death of the child should have been thoroughly investigated before bail was granted. Especially considering that the child's death occurred during the commission of a felony.

  • Phillybruh

    It is being investigated they have too determine how the child died. And that could take awhile to determine depending on how badly decomposed the remains are. I don't agree with bail, however they are entitled too it under the law.

  • PhillyFacts

    All of the adults should've been held over they were all in the compound, there is a thing in America called conspiracy. This judge dropped the ball period...

  • Phillybruh

    But all of the Adults didn't kidnap that child. He did that. And you have too prove a conspiracy.

  • Dasright

    If they were indeed training kids to commit school shootings, they are a bigger threat than we realize. They remained relatively undetected until the investigation into the little boys disappearance revealed them.

  • Phillybruh

    But clearly the prosecution didn't show evidence of that. Or they would have not gotten bail. And someone called the child services on them, likely someone in the compound.

  • PhillyFacts

    Again whether he was the only one or not, they all were in the presence of a kidnapped child, so conspiracy still stands.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Amen

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Do you know how many people would be in jail if everybody who have malnourished children were locked up.. this is nothing more than people living in a filthy complex place

  • Nonya Bizness

    People are given bail all the time after heinous crimes. The DA during that time is supposed to gather more evidence to support their case, and I personally think they also "hope" the person messes up again while out on bail.Remember Double Jeopardy. If the accused did what they're accused of, we wouldn't want the DA going to court with a weak case, the person is acquitted, while the really did commit the murder, because they can't be tried again for it.IE Casey Anthony. The DA messed that case up royally because he thought he had it in the bag, and we see what happened there.

  • PhillyFacts

    Oh well lock them up.... malnourished of a child is starvation a serious crime, terrorism a serious crime, filth of a property is not the same thing...

  • Pebbles

    The grand father did an interview informing the public that the family was aworkings with the authorities and the authorities only found out where they were because of them.

    It’s very sad situation

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Thank you. A malnourished child is itself willful child abuse. What part of that don't people get? smh

  • Coy little wink

    Well at least she is consistent ?

  • free

    the kids present told authorities that he died from a ritual.

  • Phillybruh

    They still have to prove that.

  • Trace da Ace

    naw....I cant...not today...not with this shit. When it comes to the babies....that takes me to certain place.....just to see the conditions that these babies were raised/living in....that alone makes me want to go the hell off....so I'm going to exit and move on to the next post.....

  • Mo Mobetta

    I dead ass laughed at the fact the man slapped the newborn in front of a male doctor.. It’s sad and funny smdh

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You do know a doctor can say anybody is malnourished if they are not in the epitome of fitness

  • Rayne

    Fawked all thee way up!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You can go to jail for that comment

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Practicing liberal activism on the bench makes her a liberal judge. Her past behavior (granting low bail to violent offenders) is typical of judges who are willing to redefine the law to promote their liberal causes.

    You Democrats continue to elect liberal politicians who advocate for illegal immigration, promote sexual politics, contribute to high crime in their communities, and raise taxes.

  • P0shzZ0la

    Don't start complaining now. Many of you people here are for the liberals. Well....now you see what the liberals want. Open borders and chaos. You all cheer CNN and MSNBC and others...but this is what they are about. They want to destroy this country while they keep you distracted with bullsh*t about Trump. They are already killing free speech while they protect those who should be in jail. Speech is only free if you agree with them. Take the RED PILL people because it's only going to get worse.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    And the liberal judge said she didn't think they were a danger to community. She freed the Muslim terrorists for political reasons.

  • Renee26

    Seems like a serious case of neglect and nothing else to me. Charge them with manslaughter for the death of the baby (tragic) You conservatives would like to label these people as terrorist because they're Muslim but there's nothing that indicates they were preparing for a school shooting. Y'all made that up to start more hate and outrage towards blacks and Muslims.

    The kids didn't even attend school. Historically all US school shooters have been white except for a few college lovers spats (still not black people)... Last time I checked it wasn't illegal to teach your children how to shoot. White people been doing it forever and it hasn't been an issue. When Jed and nem go hunting they don't raise a fuss about those savages teaching their kids to kill living beings.... GTFOH

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL.
    Everything is politics to you.

    I am sure that there are racist white judges like the one who set the bail at a measly $100K for the white busybody who murdered the black father in Florida and the sheriff refused to arrest him due to SYG law.
    As for illegal immigration what have Republicans who control both houses of Congress and the White House for the last 18 months proposed?
    Absolutely nothing because they know people like you vote on emotion and fear and immigration is an issue they don't want to solve because businesses employ lots of illegals.
    I won't respond to the rest of your gobblygook because they are just talking points.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "As for illegal immigration..." you know exactly what the Republicans propose. Closed borders and a wall to prevent illegals from crossing into this country and applying for benefits that we, the taxpayers, pay for.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "Seems like a serious case of neglect and nothing else to me."

    Training children to shoot up schools with assault rifles is "nothing else"? Liberals are like cancer: they destroy communities with their biased politics. That's why liberal politicians are losing elections.

  • P0shzZ0la

    Remember...these people don't deal in facts....ONLY emotions. They don't care about the truth and the liberals love them....! They aren't called useful-idiots for nothing....!

  • Renee26

    Where did the school shooting claim come from??? It seems made up to me... Target practice does not equal planning a school shooting.

  • Aries Dog

    The baby may have died from “natural causes” I think he was epileptic. Not excusing it just giving a probable reason.

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly....Training children to kill is a tactic that is taught in terrorist camps throughout the world,so it is definitely more that a kid being neglected.

    Liberals love to minimize terrorism will get 38 hot if you point out a Muslim who commits terrorism.

  • Ryan

    GTFOH with that whiny alt-right "outrage". Those beasts wouldn't even have you sitting across from them at their dinner table unless you're serving them and you coons still chase after them for acceptance that will never come. They just make room for one or two of "the good ones" who they regularly replace and pay the rest of y'all dust. Sad.

  • Li-Wright

    It took the Feds to step in. A Shame. They found the little boy's body, that's murder and the two men should have been held.

  • Li-Wright

    They found the little boy's body, that's murder.

  • Li-Wright

    The boy's body was found on the premises, that's murder.

  • DeJeri

    If she is so liberal why aren't they outraged at the Republican who appointed her?

  • DeJeri

    The Constitution grants the right to bond and freedom from excessive bond amounts. The reason why you're allowed bond is because you're innocent proven guilty no matter how heinous the accusation. If people don't like the law I suggest they move to a different country.

  • DeJeri

    That isn't true. Our local jails are always overcrowded and they start releasing people with non violent charges. A lot of people can't find anyone to bond them out. I've seen people sit in jail for three months with bonds as low as 100$. SMH

  • sherri2016

    I guess they don’t mind white people shooting up schools but as soon as they think a black person would it’s outrage

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Can you imagine if a black kid shot up a school...........roflmao......I mean its not a funny issue, but you haven't seen a person turn red until you see the outrage from that. They probably would enact stop and frist nation wide......lol

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "I didn't read anything in this write up that said they were a threat to the community".

    I don't know what write up you read. But when parents kill a 4-year-old child and 11 children are starved, abused and trained to use assault rifles to conduct school shootings - those parents are a threat to society.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A friend told me yesterday that the feds always catch the Black ones before they shoot up schools. That's because citizens always report Black people firing guns.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    I believe it....but also most "urban " schools have metal detectors and security at ever entrance. Like everything else in America blacks are considered dangerous even though whites are by far statisically more violent tuen everyone else

  • Jefferey Franklin

    This guy.....if a kid is being trained to use a gun they are being trained to killed rather directly or indirectly

  • TheOwley

    This is why liberals should not be trusted. They get into position of authority, given a chance by others, and this is what they do.

  • TheOwley

    Hello, they were muslim and the were training children to become terrorists. This is the MO by many muslims so the two are not mutually exclusive.

    Obviously you see nothing wrong with training kids as terrorists.

  • TheOwley

    This judge should be impeached. A child was tortured and murdered, others abused. I don't care who the perps are. She needs to have her financials and off shore accounts checked. There is something terribly wrong with her. And these five monsters should not be deported if they are here illegally. They all need to hang for murder and terrorism.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Lol

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I'm guessing the children are black. The judicial system places very little value on black children. Why do you think it's so much cheaper to adopt a black child?

  • Alextra Ballard

    If this Judge conscious doesn't bother her about her fvcked up decision,she won't be disbarred,impeached or reprimanded. It's on to the next case. I don't see how her or Sandra Huckleberry Saunders sleeps at night.

  • kenzieangel07

    It's cheaper because they are the least likely to be adopted therfore make up a lager popluation of foster children. The lower fee is there to encourage more people to adopt them. Not just because they are black!!. Black familes are less likely to adopt so they have to market the adoptions to other races. Maybe we should do more to step up and adopt our own or open our homes to more foster children instead of using race as the issue Always! IMO

  • Eileen

    Liberalism run amok!! Yes it is a disease it really is and sh doesn't value black or brown life because the children they would shoot up would be black and brown.

  • Eileen

    STOP having them out of wedlock!!! Get your behind MARRIED FIRST!!!

    Thats right Sandra NEVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!

    I GUESS ALL OF THOSE WHITE KIDS THAT HAVE SHOT UP SCHOOLS, THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTER, ALL OF THE NRA PARENTS THAT TEACH THEIR KIDS HOW TO SHOOT, THE S.C. CHURCH SHOOTER AND THOSE VIOLENT RED FACE WHITE FOLKS AT CHARLOTTESVILLE READY TO HURT & KILL WERE ALL LIBERALS B/C THEY ARE ALL A BIG HUGE NASTY CANCER ON THIS NATION.........JENNY JONES!!!!!

  • J2PC

    That's not it. The facts are most Black children are overlooked as adoptive parents go for the white kids first, followed by Latino and mixed-race lighter skin. They look for what they believe is higher IQ & better behavior who the somehow think will grow up to do well in life & make them proud.

    Historically, Black children are the least likely to get adopted or placed for long in a foster care home.

    -a higher price mean that the gov't will be condemning them to fostered care group homes or orphanages where they will never be a part of someone's family. Unfortunately, they had to try something differently to make it easier to adopt Black children stuck in foster care.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Uh, then why hasn't there been a bill sent to Trump?

    Why is Trump threatening to shutdown the government if the Republican controlled Congress doesn't fund his wall?
    Again you're missing the point on purpose--the Republican controlled Congress doesn't want to do any thing about immigration because if they do they can't use it as a wedge issue any more and the businesses that back Republicans like the illegal workers.
    Oh I thought that Mexico was going to pay for that wall.
    I guess that's another lie Trump told.

  • Phillybruh

    Yall in here screaming about rights and clearly have no idea what your entitled too under the law. No wonder republicans keep winning they tell yall anything and yall believe it.

  • Renee26

    You cannot name allll Muslims as terrorists or make up lies without receipts.... What if we said all white people who teach their kids to shoot are training school shooters??? Oh that can't be the case huh...cause white people don't have to face that type of ridicule.

    Charge them with the death of the child and neglect.... But nothing else can be proved...it's racist speculation

  • TheOwley

    Wake up and take your head out of your ass.

    The remains of a child were found and this "judge" needs more evidence?
