A second-generation Somali immigrant's attack on soldiers at a military recruitment center in Toronto was not a terror attack, but instead the result of "mental illness" and he should therefor not be held responsible for his actions, a Canadian judge has ruled.
From CTV News:
TORONTO -- A man with schizophrenia who attacked soldiers at a military recruitment centre in Toronto was acquitted of terror charges and found not criminally responsible for lesser offences on Monday as a judge ruled his actions didn't fit the intended scope of the country's terrorism laws.
Defense attorney Nader Hasan of the Canadian Muslim Lawyers Association represented Hassan Ali in court and successfully got him off the hook.
At least two military personnel were left with minor injuries after Ali entered a recruitment centre in north Toronto in March 2016 and began slashing at people with a kitchen knife.He didn't realize attacking soldiers at a military recruitment center was illegal or morally wrong.
The prosecution argued at trial that Canadian terror laws could apply to Ali because he acted as a "terrorist group of one."Translation: it's racist to prosecute Arabs, Africans and Muslims for terrorist attacks.
Just ignore the fact they're hit with terror charges most frequently because they're more likely to commit said terrorist attacks.
MacDonnell said he agreed with two psychiatrists who testified at trial that Ali should be found not criminally responsible for his actions.First off, the government very well may have been listening to him if he was planning terrorism.
Second, it's totally standard for Somalis to believe in Jinns. It's part of their culture. They think they're possessed by demons called "jinn" for which they try to cure themselves by reciting prayers to Allah:
According to the World Health Organization, as Al Jazeera has reported, one-third of Somalis are "mentally ill."
Regardless, they go on to say he was angry over Canada's military involvement in Muslim countries and wanted to martyr himself for Allah, which explicitly shows his attack had political aims.
Ali became angry over Canadian military involvement in Muslim countries and came to feel that if he martyred himself all his sins would be forgiven in the afterlife, the doctors said.This ruling effectively means Somali immigrants can commit terror attacks with impunity and be taken care of by the Canadian government afterwards (on top of beforehand as upwards of 90 percent are on welfare).
If anyone should be receiving examinations for mental illness, it's this judge.
