Oh, but I’m so sure he’s just a poor, misunderstood, hapless amateur who didn’t mean any harm, right?:
Drawings found in the prison cell of a man suspected of plotting to attack Fort Dix suggest that he wants to seek revenge against FBI agents and should remain in custody, prosecutors said Monday.
The drawings—include one with the letters “FBI” and a gun pointing to them—are another reason that Agron Abdullahu should not be released from custody as he awaits trial, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in legal documents filed Monday.
Abdullahu seemed to be thinking about “seeking revenge against the FBI agents who caused him to be imprisoned in the first place,” they wrote. “Releasing Abdullahu now would not only endanger the community at large, but also the agents who investigated this case.”
Guards at the Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia found the FBI drawing and another in the one-person cell where Abdullahu is being held.
The other drawing was of the phrase—”Rainca Kosava UCK.” Prosecutors contend that it refers to the Kosovo Liberation Army, which they say has links to some terrorist groups. Authorities said Abdullahu admitted to drawing the graffiti and explained that “Rainca” was the town where he was born.
The government said the drawings were etched with the screw from a light switch plate onto the door of Abdullahu’s cell.
It’s just a misunderstanding, don’t you see:
In an unusual move, Abdullahu himself testified at the bail hearing. At one point, he told the judge: “I would never do anything to harm this country.”
Fortunately, someone sitting on the bench ain’t buying the sob story:
Federal Magistrate Joel Schneider rejected those arguments, and tearful pleas from his family.
A few more details:
“The United States submits that Abdullahu’s behavior in prison establishes, by clear and convincing evidence, that he is a serious danger to the community,” Deputy U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick and Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Stigall wrote in a motion to U.S. Magistrate Judge Joel Schneider. “The subject matter of the etchings alone is disturbing at best and at worst demonstrated the volition of an individual predisposed to violence.”
