US Supreme Court refuses to review terrorism convictions of Muslim who plotted to behead Pamela Geller

46

The Supreme Court was unequivocal. And that’s striking. Because today you don’t know how these things will go. And his defense team pulled out every card. They played the race card and everything else they could play. But in this instance, justice prevailed. Not only did Daoud Wright target me for a brutal, cruel and violent death, but there has been no indication that he has given up these beliefs, and they are only being reinforced while he is in prison, due to a prison system that is rife with jihad recruitment that prison officials are unable or unwilling to do anything about. There is no indication that once he is released from prison at any time in the future, that he would not resume his quest to kill me. He should have been given, as I requested, the sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The US Supreme Court won’t hear David Daoud Wright’s challenge to the terrorism-related convictions stemming from his leadership of two men who plotted to kill Boston police officers in 2015 and political commentator Pamela Geller, whom terror group ISIS had targeted for death.

The justices did not issue a written explanation for their refusal and instead the clerk of the nation’s highest court sent a terse letter to Wright’s attorneys and the lower federal courts in Boston. The appeal request is called a writ of certiorari.

“The Court today entered the following order in the above-entitled case: The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied,” the letter from the US Supreme Court reads. It is dated Monday.

Wright, of Everett, was convicted of leading the small group that included his uncle, Usaamah Rahim, 26, who was shot and killed when he confronted Boston police officers and FBI special agents with a knife in Roslindale in June 2015. Rahim, authorities said, was planning to board a bus and randomly attack victims.

Wright took the stand in his own defense during his trial in US District Court in Boston and said he was only engaging in an “ISIS role-play fantasy” because he was obese and had no social life. He was convicted on five charges, and sentenced to 28 years behind bars. Four of his five convictions were later upheld by the First Circuit Court of Appeals….
