New York: Sympathetic judge gives light sentence to ‘autistic’, wannabe jihadi

Outside the mosque no doubt – but which one has the “malady”?

A wannabe terrorist from Long Island was sentenced Tuesday to 13 years in prison by a federal judge who took pity on him because he’s autistic.

Justin Kaliebe, 22, of Bay Shore, faced up to 30 years for trying to join a Yemeni branch of al Qaeda in 2013 to wage jihad against the US.

Long Island federal court Judge Denis Hurley agreed that Kaliebe was “radicalized to the nth degree” but said he has a “malady” and “probably falls somewhere on the autistic scale.”

“I am very sympathetic to this defendant,” said Hurley during the hours-long sentencing proceeding in Central Islip. “Besides from the havoc he intended to cause, he is a very nice young man.”

Before a courtroom packed with relatives and friends, Kaliebe tearfully apologized for turning to radical Islam as a way to escape a childhood of bullying.

“I thought I finally found true friends at the mosque in Bay Shore,” he said about converting to Islam in his early teens. “I have now renounced Islam. I have chosen to be guided by love.”

Kaliebe’s mother audibly wept in court as he added, “I regret every day of my actions. I wish I was in college right now. I wish I could be with my mother and sister right now.”

He begged Hurley not to throw the book at him.

“Please, Judge Hurley, don’t lock me up and throw away the key. Let me have another chance to live my life,” Kaliebe said.

In 2013, Kaliebe pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to provide material support to terrorists.

He’ll be under 20 years of supervised release once he gets out of prison.

His co-defendant Marcos Alonso Zea was sentenced to 25 years for also plotting to join al Qaeda.


He claims to have renounced Islam. Let’s see how well that goes over at Riker’s Island or wherever he serves his time.

Separately, in Alabama, another wannabe jihadi was let go by a judge after finding he was not guilty by reason of mental defect. This despite a:

…second evaluation found that Pruitt may have Autism Spectrum Disorder and “may have a much more developed skill set/ability than was previously believed,” according to the judge’s order.

He had no problem chatting up what he thought were Muslim terrorists on social media.

Upon his release, the local media treated him like a celebrity lofting softball question after softball question and not once asking him about the crime he took part in.

  1. “Which one has the malady” Take your pick…..

  2. Libtard Bleeding Hearts fall for taqiiya every time.

  3. Considering the rampant muzzloid infiltration into the correctional system, I’d say it’s a good chance he will re-convert or be “accidentally” obliterated during his stay in the slammer! BTW, this kid is the epitome of who the jihadi recruiters want to entrap–a weak-minded, social reject of a kid! It’s just like the DEVIL to offer them “true friendship” and “eternal whoopie” in some Never-never land of bliss! And they fall for it every time! Let’s hope this kid is for real when he says he has RENOUNCED IZZLAM! I want to believe he’s sincere about that, but I wouldn’t give a wooden nickel that he’ll survive his incarceration, if he stands by his “guns”!

  4. Why do we have to feel anything for this lying little moslem? He’d think nothing of killing anyone for Pigslam. That bleeding heart judge is not qualified to render a diagnosis about anyone. Judge is not the same as MD. I may have missed something buy I didn’the read that he has been diagnosed with Autism. I care that we are constantly being subjected to viewing cap and gown pics of these misguided thugs.

  5. Mark Twain, i.e., Samuel Clemens, was right! He said (not an exact quote)–When a kid turns 12 (13) we should put him in a barrel with one little hole for air…. Then when he turns 18 (19) we should SEAL UP THE HOLE!!! (I digress to anyone who has the exact quote.) Unfortunately, it’s those crucial adolescent years when the al Queda, ISIS, HAMAS, etc, etc, etc….. i.e., the DAMND MUZZLOID PIGS, zero in on for their RECRUITS! Not coincidentally, it’s that age bracket of kids who almost inevitably think they are INVINCIBLE AND KNOW IT ALL!! There probably isn’t an English word to describe how STUPID these kids really are! It’s beyond tragic that so many of them die or are incarcerated during those years b/c they thought they KNEW IT ALL!!! It’s probably TOO LATE for this kid here, cause now nobody will believe him, EVEN IF HE HAS SINCERELY RENOUNCED PISSLAM!!!! ISLAM IS NOT AN ALTERNATIVE WAY TO KNOW GOD–IT’S A SURE-FIRE WAY TO HELL!!!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
