We have another unnerving case of a recent convert to Islam allegedly turning quickly to involvement in terrorism. Enrique Marquez, 24, legally purchased the AR-15 rifles that his neighbor San Bernardino gunman Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik used to kill 14 people and injure 21 others. Police say that former security guard Marquez had recently converted to Islam and was part of the planning for the attack but got cold feet after the arrests in a nearby town of terrorism suspects in an unrelated case. He will initially face gun charges since he transferred the weapons to the couple after serving as the purchaser.
Marquez is also related to Farook by marriage. He married the sister-in-law of Farook’s older brother. Marquez and and his new wife, Mariya Chernykh, listed their address on the marriage license at the same Corona home where Syed Raheel and Tatiana Farook live. He also converted and had gone to a few services at the local mosque. Just seven months ago, Marquez was attending punk rock concerts. He was working at local Wal-Mart, which has since fired him.
Law enforcement officials say that Farook and Marquez had discussed carrying out attacks in the Los Angeles area in 2012. executing an attack somewhere in the Los Angeles area in 2012, but decided not to do so after four people were arrested in nearby Riverside County in an unrelated terror case.
Marquez checked into a mental health facility after the attacks in San Bernardino. It will be interesting to see if the policy will seek confidential notes from that mental health visit. In the Menendez brothers murder case, police used the notes of the therapist against them at trial. L. Jerome Oziel was later accused of violating confidentiality and stripped of his license in 1997.
The rapid conversion and alleged radicalization of people like Marquez makes the task of law enforcement all the most difficult. It also shows the folly of Trump’s plan to simply bar all Muslims from entry into the United States. A terrorist is willing to kill innocent people. He clearly will not be troubled in saying that he is a Quaker if needed to enter the country. Moreover, these groups have ready made recruits within the country, particularly among the mentally unstable in the population.

Remember Operation Greylord? We need your help. Our courts, nationwide, are a disgrace. It is scary how bad they are, how blatantly judges violate the Canons. Many are out of control. If lay people can appreciate the severity of this ongoing catastrophe, professionals must be aware it. Take a look at your colleague’s thoughts.
“If experience demands a presumption that a judge will seize every
opportunity presented to him in the course of his official conduct to line his
pockets, no canon of ethics or statute regarding disqualification can save our
—Justice William Rehnquist1
“A judiciary without honesty has little chance of executing its moral and
constitutional duties, no matter how many rules of ethics exist. This is
especially true in the United States, where the judiciary is afforded wide
discretion. Facts and law require interpretation; justice and equity require
judgment. Every decision to grant a motion, to follow precedent, to interpret a
statute or facts, to set a sentence or damages—every decision left up to the
discretion of a judge—is a potential opportunity for corruption. Eliminating all
opportunities for personal gain would require nothing less than the destruction
of the independent and adaptable judicial system we know. And so we count
on honest judges to navigate our ship of justice through these dangerous
waters.” Stratos Pahis Yale Law Journal
Of all the lawyers in the United States who command and deserve the respect needed to give instant credibility to the cause of eliminating judicial corruption, you are at the top of the list. Our nation needs you Jonathan. You could render no greater service to America than to participate in this mission.
If you don’t recall my criticizing Jews who engage in wrongdoing, then revisit the posts on this blog discussing them. On this blog you have claimed to be both a Mexican American, and an African immigrant.
Ah, geez, I just read your comment about my being a bigot, racist, et al.
You’re just crazy. It’s not a good idea to talk to crazy people.
hahahaha…dear karen, …same old karen…
dishes it out but can’t take it…cries foul because she was asked questions…
You start out condemning Jews but end up blaming their actions on Muslims instead…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wouldn’t it be just easier to answer the questions, karen…?
How far can you run you think?
Again, you are having reading or comprehension issue. Go back to see the name of the writer, which I posted. Still trying to confuse the topic so that you can get away with obfuscation and deceit…as is your wont…
Unfair for me to ask you to be something you are not, intellectually honest. One is or isn’t.
You ain’t, not your fault…not judging you, just disappointed you won’t try to improve.
