New Mexico compound: Children 'kidnapped and trained to carry out school shootings by Muslim extremists'

New Mexico compound: Children 'kidnapped and trained to carry out school shootings by Muslim extremists'A child who was among a group of youngsters being held inside a rural New Mexico compound, said they were being trained by their captors to conduct school shootings. Five suspects were arrested after police found 11 starving children between the ages of one and 15 inside a makeshift structure with a nearby shooting range. One of the children’s foster parents told prosecutors “the defendant had trained the child in the use of an assault rifle in preparation for future school shootings”, according to court filings.

New Mexico fugitive 'was training child to carry out school shootings'

New Mexico fugitive 'was training child to carry out school shootings'A man arrested in New Mexico last week on child abuse and abduction charges was training one of the 11 children at his remote desert encampment to carry out a school shooting, prosecutors have claimed. Siraj Wahhaj, 39, appeared before a magistrate in Taos, New Mexico, on Wednesday. He was arrested on Friday after police, searching for his missing four-year-old son Abdul-Ghani, raided the compound and found 11 starving, filthy children with five adults. Wahhaj and the four others – his wife Jany Leveille, 38, his sisters, Subhannah, 35, and Hujrah, 38, and Subhannah’s husband Lucas Morten - were charged with 11 counts of child abuse. Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe, who arrested Wahhaj and his associates after a day-long armed standoff, said his men planned "a tactical approach for our own safety, because we had learned the occupants were most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief." The remote desert camp in New Mexico, which was raided on Friday The remains of a young boy, believed to be Wahhaj’s missing son, was found buried on the property, Mr Hogrefe said on Tuesday. On Wednesday it emerged that one of the 11 children taken into care had, according to prosecutors, told their foster parents that Wahhaj trained them to carry out a school shooting. The child was allegedly taught to fire an assault rifle, in readiness for the mission.  Tim Hasson, a prosecutor with the district court in Taos, requested that Wahhaj, son of a prominent Brooklyn imam, remain in custody and that his case be moved to the district court. His office has also filed motions to hold the other four defendants. The saga began in December, when Wahhaj told the boy’s mother he was taking their severely disabled child, unable to walk, to the park. A poster from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children shows Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, left, and his father Siraj Wahhaj Credit:  National Center for Missing & Exploited Children He never returned to their home in Georgia, and the boy’s mother reported it to the police, saying Wahhaj intended to perform an “exorcism” on his son because Abdul-Ghani was “possessed by the Devil.” She later said that “exorcism” was a mistranslation, and that Wahhaj simply wanted to pray for his son. New Mexico authorities had long suspected the father and son might be at the compound after learning about the abduction in May, said Mr Hogrefe. But there was not enough evidence for a search warrant, and surveillance of the property did not identify the pair there. That changed on Thursday, when they received a note from inside the compound saying they were starving and thirsty. Mr Hogrefe said his men found Wahhaj in a "partly buried camper trailer" with two women and several of the children.  Wahhaj refused to come out with his hands up, and when investigators opened the door, they found Wahhaj "was armed with a loaded revolver in his pocket," and was "wearing a belt with five loaded 30-round AR15 magazines in pouches on the belt."  Next to Wahhaj was a loaded AR15, according to Mr Hogrefe's affidavit.  Wahhaj refused to give his name or identify anyone with him. He declined to say anything about his son Abdul's whereabouts, according to the court document.  Investigators found a 100-foot tunnel on the north side of the buried trailer, about three feet in diameter with two dugout "pockets" containing bedding, Mr Hogrefe said. Another enclosure made of straw and tires housed a makeshift toilet. There was no running water.   On the compound was a powerful Marlin 30-30 rifle with a scope, other guns, ammunition, a laptop, camcorder, and a Penguin child's nebulizer used to turn medicine into mist. Morten was arrested at the front of the property and initially charged with harbouring a fugitive. The child abuse charges were added later. "The living conditions, health and wellbeing of the children were deemed deplorable,” said Mr Hogrefe. “They had no clean water, food or electricity; dirty clothing, poor hygiene, and had not eaten or taken nutrition in what was believed to be days."

US interest in concealed carry permit training jumps 100 per cent after Parkland: ‘We’ve never seen a spike this big before’

US interest in concealed carry permit training jumps 100 per cent after Parkland: ‘We’ve never seen a spike this big before’The number of Americans interested in obtaining concealed carry permits to secretly bear arms in public has jumped dramatically since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February – with some states having seen as much as a 250 per cent increase in training requests for this type of permit. In the 50 days since the Parkland, Florida shooting, companies and networks of firearm instructors that provide training for the permits in dozens of states have seen enquiries spike. One company said it had even received more requests for training than after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

Starbucks coffee must carry cancer warning in California, judge rules

Starbucks coffee must carry cancer warning in California, judge rulesStarbucks and other coffee vendors must carry cancer warnings in California, a Los Angeles judge has ruled.  The companies have less than a fortnight to challenge the decision and could face millions of pounds in fines if unsuccessful.  The decision relates to a chemical called acrylamide, a byproduct of roasting coffee beans that is present in high levels in brewed coffee. In California, companies are required by law to warn consumers if their products contain chemicals that could cause cancer.  A non-profit group claimed acrylamide was in that category and brought a lawsuit against some 90 coffee retailers including Starbucks.  Elihu Berle, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge, ruled that the companies had failed to show there was no significant risk from a carcinogen produced in the roasting process.  Starbucks logo Credit: AP Photo/Lisa Poole The judge said: “Defendants failed to satisfy their burden of proving by a preponderance of evidence that consumption of coffee confers a benefit to human health.” The lawsuit was filed in 2010 by the Council for Education and Research on Toxics (CERT).  It calls for fines as large as $ 2,500 per person for every exposure to the chemical since 2002 at the defendants’ shops in California.  Given the state has a population of nearly 40 million any fines, which would be decided in a later stage of the trial, could be huge.  Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s and other coffee retailers did not comment on the decision according to Reuters, which reported the news.  A statement from the National Coffee Association (NCA) read: “Cancer warning labels on coffee would be misleading. The US government’s own dietary guidelines state that coffee can be part of a healthy lifestyle.”
