New Mexico compound suspects plead not guilty to terror charges

Five people arrested last August at a New Mexico compound where the body of a toddler was found pleaded not guilty on Thursday to federal terrorism charges. Their lawyers argued that the charges were brought against them largely because they are Muslims. Defense attorneys said the group were exercising their rights to teach their children how to shoot, practice religion and live ’off-the-grid’.

"how to shoot, practice religion and live off-the-grid"... so pretty much how to stablish a terrorist cell

It’s okay to live off the grid, religiously. I honestly doubt that is what these men were up to. There is a minuscule niche of people that live “off” the grid that don’t have their “camps” raided by government agents.

On advice of counsel. This what lawyers bring to society.

I'm shocked that nobody is being held responsible for the body found at the compound, nor it has been identified.
