Robert Doggart: If He Was Muslim He’d Be Serving Life In Prison


So this guy will likely be let go because a judge thinks he isn’t “a true threat.” Hmmm, I wonder why?

This is another instance that exemplifies the double standard, systematic racism and flawed justice system that is pervasive in the US. (h/t: JD)

Robert Rankin Doggart, a former candidate for Congress, admitted in federal court to “plotting the annihilation” of a village in New York that is home to many Muslims. Doggart’s plans included “burning down a school, a mosque and a cafeteria,” according to the criminal complaint.

“We’re gonna be carrying an M4 with 500 rounds of ammunition, light armor piercing. A pistol with three extra magazines, and a machete. And if it gets down to the machete, we will cut them to shreds,” Doggart allegedly said according to the transcript of a wiretap cited in the complaint. He also allegedly tried to recruit other individuals to participate in his plot through a Facebook group.

As part of a plea agreement, Doggart pled guilty to “interstate communication of threats” and faces up to five years in prison. He was in jail awaiting final sentencing.

But a federal judge, Curtis Collier, may not accept the guilty plea. He’s ordered the prosecution and defense to produce briefs proving that Doggart was a “true threat.” Meanwhile, a different federal judge, Magistrate Susan K. Lee, released Doggart from jail “into the custody of two family members.”

Lee had previously found that Doggart was a “danger to the community.” The government appealed the decision to release Doggart to Judge Collier, who affirmed Lee’s decision.

      Jesus said, he’s God. So if Mohammed was narcisstic, J. takes it to a whole new level. But I believe J. was right, because J. does not only love himself, but everyone. You, good sir, if you are a Christian, should feel that too. But when I read your comment, I feel nothing of God’s love, but simply weak Human hate. Love thy declared “enemy” at least a bit!

      Like the infidelophobes who conspire to murder infidels, this Muslimophobe should clearly be locked up forever, IMO. Unfortunately, the reality is that most terrorism convictions in the US result in short-ish, finite sentences rather than “life in prison” :

      Average sentence for persons convicted of terrorism: 191.9 months, or 16.0 years

      If you take your medication, you can leave the hospital, and live in reality with the rest of us.

      From your comment:

      “…A narcissist truly believes he is the best of humanity even if his actions are despicable. He projects his own vices on others while idealizes his own attributes…”

      The arrogance of your post is proof that you have first hand knowledge of what you are trying to project away from yourself.

      “Muslims inhabit a different moral universe from the rest of us,”

      I think it’s more likely that you are self-absorbed in your own moral universe from the rest of us.

      “Muslims are incapable of loving” That’s not true “We love death more than you love life” HAMAS See they love something. But for serious Muslims love their children as much as anyone else. Have you not seen the news footage of mums and dad’s openly weeping over their injured or dying children. Average working people caught in a war zone. On the one hand fanatics on the other ISIS….(.see what I did there. ) the world can be a terrible place count your blessing that “terrorism” is really a minor threat in the grand scheme of things.
