You wonder why people are losing faith in the criminal justice system? Could it have anything to do with who can just ‘walk’?
The 28-year-old man suspected of planting bombs in Manhattan and New Jersey over the weekend was previously arrested for stabbing a person in the leg and possession of a firearm in 2014, DailyMail.com has learned.
But a grand jury let him walk, despite a warning from the arresting officer that Rahami was likely ‘a danger to himself or others.’
Ahmad Khan Rahami, who was arrested on Monday in Linden, N.J., after a manhunt ended in a shootout with police, was also a deadbeat dad who didn’t like America and hated gays, according to the mother of his young daughter.
This was not the first arrest for Rahami, a New Jersey resident who emigrated from Afghanistan and became a naturalized U.S. citizen.
Criminal court filings obtained by DailyMail.com show he has previous arrests for assault and gun charges.
However, in that case a grand jury failed to indict Rahami and he was let back out onto the streets.
On August 22, 2014, Rahami was arrested for aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a knife after allegedly stabbing an individual named Nasim Rahami in the left leg in an ‘attempt to cause serious bodily injury.’
A neighbor told Haaretz newspaper that Rahami has a brother named Nasim Rahami, while the case was classified as domestic violence in the complaint and arrest warrant.
Rahami was also arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm ‘with a purpose to use it unlawfully against the person or property of Nasim Rahami’.
So, a guy with a track record of violence gets to walk. But the government that takes every opportunity to oppose lawful gun ownership.
