Guy Who Desecrated Christian Graves in Fla. Pleads Guilty, Tried to Join al Qaeda's Syrian Affiliate

Hello mom, I'm in jail. I like it here.

In my last post I was just musing about how common this is becoming:

A 20-year-old Florida man has pleaded guilty to federal terrorism charges after authorities say he conspired to aid al-Qaida and traveled to the Middle East to join terrorist groups.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Jacksonville reports that Shelton Thomas Bell pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and attempting to provide material support to terrorists. He faces up to 30 years in prison.

1 What is his mental condition? Did he have a criminal history before his interest in islam? I truly believe the tenets of islam attract bad people by justifying bad behaviour. We have devout converts being released from prison by the hundreds.

2 All these scruffy, wimpy looking, guys that have no idea of what living 'native' in these countries is like. No decent grocery stores, restrooms and the "U-Sleep-Here" flea bag "hotel" here, looks like the Waldorf there.
Set-em up as CIA and send them over for their then short life.

4 They prey on lost souls, easy targets, the not too bright or desperate. Whoever coverted and radicalized him must be brought to account, the Mosque he went to as well. Period. No more of this. No more getting away with it and having the benefit of doubt, it's been how many years since 9/11? Enough, they need to crack down hard.

5 Well, dead people are easy to fight with, unless they are Zombies, and most of the dead voted Obama in the last election.
