A pleasure to converse with you. I regret to say that I do not know the specifics of how the English courts have interpreted the law; however, we do
know that you can own science books and even books about bomb making in England and not go to jail. It is a guess; but, I will bet you that the law
requires that the information not be commonly available and lets face it, you and I cannot just order that same "magazine" and get it. Why did she
need an Al Qaida application that let you know how to make bombs in order to understand her brother and why did she keep it with her when she went to
London? Apparently she knew it was illegal because she plead guilty.
What is very interesting is that she did not claim that what she did was legal. She did not claim that she believed it was legal to have these
materials, why not? Even if it is not a valid legal argument, you would still say that to the press. Her attorney made it about her owning a magazine
AFTER he allowed her to plead guilty. Alex Jones is a sensationalist that only provides the facts that are in alignment with the agenda he pushes. I
find it very hard to believe that she did not have any idea what her brothers believed and why.
I love my brother, if he were arrested tomorrow for being a terrorist, I would be shocked; but, I would not find some application for making bombs, I
would ask him why he did what he did. You don't need an application for your phone to make bombs in order to understand Al Qaida and it's followers,
you can read their statements in the news and on supportive sites.
Mr. Jones and others seek to make this about free access to information; but, it is not. If I send you a letter asking you to kill someone and I send
it to a hundred people, it is illegal. The question is and always should be whether or not a thing is said in jest or is an actual attempt to achieve
an illegal goal. I may not be 100% right about how this all went down; but, I would not have plead guilty if all I did was buy a magazine. Peace.
