A suspected ISIS sympathizer was released from jail after he posted bail. Derrick Thompson (aka Abu Talib Al-Amriki) was released from jail on March 21. Back in December, a grand jury indicted Thompson on charges related to supporting ISIS. Investigators say between January 2015 and December 2016, Thompson solicited, incited or induced others to promote or help ISIL, also known as ISIS.



According to court records, in October 2016, Thompson made several Google searches including: midnight mass, martyrdom vs. suicide and which type of gun is the most powerful. He also reportedly posted on his Google Plus account in October, "We need to get down with this ISIS S***." In January 2015, investigators say Thompson tried to buy a gun with the intent to carry out an attack. However, Thompson is a convicted felon which prohibits him from buying a firearm.



Thompson, who was raised Arizona, was involved in two armed robberies in 2005 along with two other men. They robbed two men in two days, along with a handgun and an SKS rifle with bayonet. Thompson was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison for his involvement in the crimes and released on January 1, 2013. Thompson pleaded not guilty last month to charges of supporting the terror group and plotting a "lone wolf" style attack.



Who thought it was a good idea for this guy to even have a bail? He is already a convicted felon for a crime in which he used a firearm and some judge thought it ok to set a bail for him? After he searched terms in google for midnight mass, martyrdom vs. suicide and which type of gun is the most powerful. It is obvious he was planning an attack because a convicted felon shouldn't even be thinking about firearms unless they are up to no good. Luckily our firearm background checks worked and prohibited him from purchasing a firearm from a dealer. But who is to say he doesnt just go to Phoenix back pages and find one there?

I have a feeling an attack is set for AZ here soon but I hope im wrong. Be vigilant my fellow Arizonians.

greattt. I'm sure he learned his lesson and no longer hates America or will sympathize with ISIS

Well I can guarantee if he is still planning something. He is going to be a lot more careful and quiet about it.

What scares me is Easter is right around the corner.

What am I missing? What crime did he commit? Doing a Google search on any, literally any of the most perverted, backward, evil things you can think of, cannot possibly be considered a crime. It is absurd. He committed another crime years ago, got a pretty stiff sentence, and served his time.

He tried to buy a fire arm, and he's a convicted felon, so ipso facto, he was going to commit a crime with it? This is absurd. What crime did he commit? The fact that Americans are outraged at his release, as opposed to his being charged in the first place, shows that we've lost the fight, the police state is here, congratulations. WE HAVE NO MORE RIGHTS.

I have no words really...

This is an absurd post.

This a crime. Anywhere except in ISIS held territory.

He should be doing 25 to life.

Except that he has only been charged, not convicted. He is out on bail.

Let the jury decide.

Correction:

FELONS HAVE NO RIGHTS TO FIREARMS.

There is no reason for a felon (who still has the felony on his record) to attempt to buy a firearm. Unless it is for nefarious reasons. Because the mere fact of him even possessing a firearm is another felony.

Also, Conspiracy to Commit Terrorism is a crime and so is supporting ISIS. A grand jury felt there was enough evidence to indict Thompson on charges related to supporting ISIS. So even a jury of his peers felt there was enough evidence to indict. Meaning he still has some rights and due process is being followed. So technically he has not been found guilty of this crime but he has been indicted. Which I feel should be a no bail indictment.

Whether we like it or not it is innocent until proven guilty here in America. We even let murderers out on bail and this guy didn't hurt anyone so why should he sit in jail? Also if he was going to stage an attack then why try to buy the weapon legally? He could have just gotten info on where to get one from his former cellmates.

I know what he is charged with, but the evidence of that is completely lacking. That's my point. "We gotta get down with this ISIS sh#t". Is that really helping terrorists? If so, then every person who has said that the CIA is funding ISIS, or that Obama did, etc., they're all guilty of the same thing.

FELONS HAVE NO RIGHTS.

Wrong they just don't have the right to buy guns. They still have all the other rights.



There is no reason for a felon (who still has the felony on his record) to attempt to buy a firearm.

So felons have no right to self defense.

FELONS HAVE NO RIGHTS




That is an extremely inaccurate statement.
Felons have a few rights that are restricted but most of their rights are intact.

You are correct I should have said they have no rights to firearms and to vote.

There I fixed it for you guys since my statement of felons not having rights seems to be more important than the OP.

#1, Felons do have rights. They may not have as many as non-felons, but they have rights. Even when they are in prison, they have some rights. So you are wrong there.

#2, The term nefarious denotes evilness, sinfulness. There are two types of crimes, those that are evil in in of themselves and therefore are criminalized, malum in se; and those that are only crimes because they have been prohibited, malum prohibitum. A felon attempting to buy a firearm is the second type and therefore, by definition, not nefarious.

#3, The old saying goes, the DA, or in this case the AUSA, could indict a ham sandwich if they wanted to. Indictment means nothing. The fact that it wasn't a "no bail" indictment implies to me the the judge who set the bail thinks the case is worthless as well.

That really all depends on who he is trying to indoctrinate doesn't it.

If it's half radicalised people or the mentally ill, then yes it can be seen as helping terrorists.
