The judge has threatened to jail him unless his family proves he is not promoting jihad terror. “It’s the most difficult thing for the parents because obviously they are very worried about the child and often this comes from nowhere,” said Judge Arbuthnot, but how does he know that his parents didn’t raise him with the beliefs that he has? He should have ordered an investigation of the parents and the local mosque instead of naively assuming that the parents were “moderates.” But this is par for the course in Insane, Suicidal Britannia, which is, of course, finished.
“Judge tells 17-year-old extremist who spread word of US hate preacher he’ll go to jail unless his family stop him promoting jihad,” by Alexander Robertson, Mailonline, January 26, 2018:
A judge has threatened to jail a 17-year-old extremist unless his family prove they are doing all they can to stop him from promoting jihad.
The teenager, from Ilford, east London, has admitted creating flyers and CDs which were found in prayer rooms in two of London’s biggest hospitals.
He was tracked down when a carrier bag containing flyers titled Become martyrs for the sake of Allah’ was left on the Hammersmith and City line in April.
After an investigation to find the owner of the bag – a man aged in his 50s – further extremist material was found in the prayer room at University College Hospital.
The CDs were found to contain a series of lectures by banned hate preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born cleric linked to al-Qaeda who was killed in a drone strike.
Senior District Judge Emma Arbuthnot said: ‘This boy is nearly 18. This is a very serious offence. I’m going to need to know all I can about the family.
‘If there’s no family stopping this from happening I’m going to lock him up, quite frankly.’
The owner of the bag was traced via CCTV and his travelcard to Royal London Hospital where a pile of CDs marked ‘Free. Take me’ were found in a cupboard in the prayer and contemplation room….
Adjourning sentencing until March 5, Judge Arbuthnot said to the defendant: ‘I need to work out what I’m going to do with your sentence.
‘I have to make sure that if I don’t lock you up there’s a very robust package of measures in place. If you were over 18 I would lock you up, no problem.’
She praised his parents for attending court, saying: ‘It’s the most difficult thing for the parents because obviously they are very worried about the child and often this comes from nowhere.’
The youth was granted bail on condition he live and sleep at his home address, surrenders his passport and reports to his local police station three times a week.
