'This Isn't Justice': Gorka, Bongino Blast Release of Suspects in Case Involving NM 'Extremist Muslim' Compound
Kids allegedly trained to be school shooters.
Dr. Sebastian Gorka and Dan Bongino sounded off Tuesday on the release of most of the defendants accused of training children to conduct school shootings at an extremist Muslim compound in New Mexico.
Judge Sarah Backus came under fire this week for setting bail at $20,000 for the two men and three women who were arrested last week at the remote compound, in which 11 children were found living in squalid conditions.
Bongino, a former Secret Service agent, said that when he was working on white-collar crimes as an NYPD officer, he saw bond rates that were 10 and 20 times higher than what was set Monday.
"This case is outrageous," he said. "This is an embarrassment to the justice system."
The compound was raided earlier this month amid an investigation of the disappearance of a boy from Georgia.
The 11 children found were living in filth and were severely malnourished, and a four-year-old child's remains were discovered on the property.
Gorka, a former White House adviser and counter-terrorism expert, added on "Hannity" that the judge's bail decision was "remarkable."
"This is perhaps the most horrific case study of just how politicized the judicial system has become," he said.
Appearing on "America's Newsroom" on Wednesday, New Mexico Republican Party chairman Ryan Cangiolosi said that the judge's decision doesn't make sense.
"We need to make sure our communities are safe, our children are safe by keeping [criminals] behind bars," he said.
Judge Backus has a history of issuing low bail to those accused of violent offenses and has received more than 200 death threats over the bail decision.
One of the suspects, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, was transferred to federal custody over an outstanding warrant. Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam who was named by prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the New York Post reported.
