Only a Muslim supremacist would set off a series of bombs in densely populated cities like New York and New Jersey in the cause of Allah and then want attempted murder charges dropped. That’s how low and little Islamic supremacists think of the kuffar.
Ahmad Rahimi is accused of planting two bombs in Chelsea last September, one of which that detonated and injured 30 people. He also set off two bombs in New Jersey – one in Seaside Park at a charity run and another in a trash can in Elizabeth.
Chelsea bomb suspect wants attempted murder rap from police shootout dropped
By Lia Eustachewich, The New York Post, February 15, 2017:
A lawyer for the accused terrorist who set off pipe bombs in Manhattan and New Jersey argued Wednesday to get charges dropped stemming from his New Jersey shootout with police.
Ahmad Rahimi, 28, is charged in state court with five counts of attempted murder for the Sept. 19 melee with Linden, NJ cops – on top of a long list of federal charges he faces for the bombings.
His lawyer, Peter Ligouri, argued in New Jersey Superior Court that prosecutors failed to provide sufficient evidence to support charges he tried to kill the police officers.
Rahimi is accused of planting two bombs in Chelsea last September, one of which that detonated and injured 30 people. He also set off two bombs in New Jersey – one in Seaside Park at a charity run and another in a trash can in Elizabeth.
Days later, the Afghan-born man was wounded and captured after exchanging gunfire with cops.
Two officers were also injured, including one who encountered Rahimi — who sometimes goes by the last name Rahami – sleeping in the outdoor vestibule of a bar. The second officer was hurt when a bullet went through the window of his police car.
Rahimi’s next hearing in state court is Feb. 28.
His federal trial in Manhattan is scheduled for October.
