Probation. Is that what stabbing someone gets you now? Never mind a politically motivated terror stabbing.
An Iranian woman from Berkeley who catfished an American on a dating site, met up with him at a Henderson, Nevada hotel room, and then stabbed him in the neck as, “revenge against U.S. troops for the killing of Qasem Soleimani”. The death of the IRGC terror leader has been the pretext for assorted terror plots against military personnel and Trump administration members.
Henderson is close to Nellis Air Force Base which hosts the MQ-9 Reaper: the same model that was used to take out Soleimani. The attack suggested a systematic effort to target a U.S. Air Force drone pilot, lure him to a hotel room, blindfold him, and then kill him.
Stabbing someone in the neck is attempted murder even without the terror component. Somehow you get probation for that.
Judge Carli Kierny cited Nikoubin’s mental health struggles as a reason that she was offered probation in Texas, 8 News Now reported. The young woman suffered from severe depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Her lawyer said the stabbing incident was a psychotic episode.
Every other Muslim terrorist attack has been depicted as mental illness. The two are not necessarily incompatible. The sorts of people who commit terrorist attacks may have issues.
The Iranian woman cited a common pretext for Iranian terror attacks on Americans. That does not suggest some massive break from reality.
Nikoubin, who came to the US from Iran at the age of 12, told law enforcement officials she’d stabbed her date with a pink kitchen knife for revenge over the death of Qasem Soleimani in 2020, adding she stabbed Trevino out of “spite and revenge.”
“I mean the U.S. killed Soleimani. Lots of blood spilled, so, I feel like, it’s fair that American blood be spilled,” she said at the time.
Judge Carli Kierny spent much of her career working as a public defender and has a generally pro-crime record. She campaigned for office on the pro-crime platform of ‘criminal justice reform’ which means aiding criminals.
“Criminal justice reforms aren’t going to stick if we don’t have players in every part,” said Carli Kierny, another public defender running for District Court Judge Dept. 2. “If criminal justice reform is something Nevada is serious about, then you need people involved every step of the way.”
And this is the result. This is what happens when pro-crime judges take power. It means stabbing someone in the neck is a probation offense.
Especially if the stabber hates Americans and wants to help the country’s enemies.
Considering the terrorist implications here, federal authorities need to take a second look at this case.
