Pamela Geller provided thoughts to the Court sentencing David Daoud Wright for planning to behead her.

 

On a personal level I almost forgot about this wannabe Jihadi murderer. I ran into the Geller Court submission at the G+ Community Kafir and Proud (Public). Daoud was sentenced to 28-years in the slammer.

 

Info on Mr. No Religion of Peace:

 

 

Wright was found guilty of the charges against him in October but had to wait an additional two months for his sentencing process to be resolved. Wright was found to have been plotting to murder and behead blogger Pamela Geller and was also disseminating ISIS propaganda and recruiting for the organization online.

 

Together with his uncle, Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, Wright also planned to murder police officers in this area, and possibly behad [sic] them on video.  Rahim was killed by police officers after approaching them while carrying a 13-inch knife, and Wright was apprehended just hours later while attempting to destroy evidence linking him to the foiled plot. …

 

“Despite the fact that he was born in Massachusetts, Mr. Wright turned against his country and joined a radical terrorist organization,” Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb said

 

Wright and his uncle Usaamah Rahim had also reportedly received details on how to kill their original victim, Pamela Geller, from ISIS fighter Junaid Hussain, who was killed by an airstrike in Raqqa in 2015. The pair also extensively researched bomb-making and how to acquire a variety of weapons to carry out their attacks.

And here:

 

Case Number: 1:15-cr-10153-WGY

 

Judge: William G. Young

 

Court: United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts (Suffolk County)

 

Plaintiff’s Attorney: B. Stephanie Siegmann and Gregory R. Gonzalez

 

Defendant’s Attorney: Jessica HedgesLinda MorenoForest O’Neill-GreenbergMike Tumposky

 

Description: Boston, MA – Massachusetts Man Sentenced to 28 Years in Prison for Supporting ISIS and Conspiring to Murder U.S. Citizens – Defendant and others conspired to behead Americans and kill police

 

An Everett man was sentenced December 19, 2017 to 28 years in prison for conspiring with others to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) and kill persons in the United States.

David Daoud Wright, a/k/a Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq, a/k/a Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq, 28, of Everett, Mass., was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge William G. Young to 28 years in prison. …

 

 

Beginning in at least February 2015, Wright began discussing ISIS’ call to kill non-believers in the United States with his uncle, Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, and co-defendant Nicholas Alexander Rovinski. Specifically, Wright created a “martyrdom” operation cell in Massachusetts. In April 2015, he created a Twitter page for the “Lions of America” and published a document entitled, Internal Conquest, on the internet in which Wright called on the “Lions of Allah” to kill Americans.

 

Wright also plotted with Rahim and Rovinski to behead U.S. citizens at the direction of ISIS, and identified a New York woman as the first beheading target. Rahim purchased three knives for this plot. In addition, Wright knew Rahim was communicating with an ISIS member in Syria, Junaid Hussain, who provided Rahim with an encrypted document containing details about the intended victim. In August 2015, Hussain was killed in an airstrike in Raqqah, Syria.

 

In preparation for their attack, Wright conducted extensive research on weapons, knives, machetes, bombing making components, and methods to subdue their victims. Wright also conducted research on “how to start a secret militia in the United States.” (United States of America v. David Daoud Wright, a/k/a Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq, a/k/a Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq; More Law Lexapedia; 12/20/17)

 

Thanks to the Boston Globe gleaning info from Wright’s mother, here is a snapshot David Daoud Wright’s youth before he was entangled with ISIS:

 

But Wright’s mother — along with an uncle and his defense attorneys — contend that he was an overweight 28-year-old who rarely left his mother’s home, where he spent most of his waking time playing video games or searching the Internet for a way to ease his loneliness.

 

Wright has a restless intellect that would often lead him to become obsessed with an issue for months on end until another caught his interest, his mother wrote. …

 

Muhammad painted a portrait of a difficult life for her son. He had little contact with his biological father, who was abusive to her, she said. He often struggled to fit in socially because he was so much heavier and taller than his peers — he wore size 13 shoes and was 6 feet tall in seventh grade, she said. (With her son facing life in prison, mother of terror plotter says he was ‘brainwashed’ by ISIS; By John R. Ellement; Boston Globe; 12/15/17)

 

So, what I glean from Wright’s mother and a little guess work with his given name being mostly Christian/English; Wright not only is an American citizen that learned to hate American culture, he was born in the USA. I mean if someone took the younger Wright under his wing, he could have grown up to be President like another young man raised as a Muslim in his childhood.

 

Without further ado, here is Pamela Geller’s Full Victim Impact Statement in regard for the judge to evaluate a sentence for David Daoud Wright.

Pamela Geller’s Full Victim Impact Statement at the Sentencing of Daoud Wright

Geller Report

 

Here is the full Victim Impact Statement that I read today at the sentencing of would-be jihad murderer Daoud Wright:

 

Pamela Geller Victim Impact Statement

 

Sentencing David Daoud Wright

 

It is impossible to overstate the devastation that Daoud Wright has brought to my life and that of members of my family. Not only did he target me for a brutal, cruel and violent death, but he targeted family members, and this will not even be over with his sentencing.

 

Daoud Wright wanted to kill me over my First Amendment right, free speech – speech he was indoctrinated to think was an immense evil by his violent and absolutist belief system and ideology. There has been no indication that he has given up these beliefs. If he says he has, his sincerity cannot be taken for granted, as deception is part of his twisted beliefs. Thus there is no assurance that anyone can possibly give me that if he is released from prison at any time in the future, that he would not resume his quest to kill me and my relatives.

 

Therefore Daoud Wright should be given the sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

 

Not only has Daoud Wright made it impossible for me to live a normal life. Not only has he forced me to spend tens of thousands of dollars on security measures in my home, guards when I appear in public, and numerous other precautions. He terrorized our lives. He has caused me and my relatives physical and emotional distress, as well as the crippling financial costs required as a result of his mass murder plot.

 

All that is bad enough, but there is more. This will never end for me, and so it should never end for Daoud Wright.

 

If he gets out, my family members and I will be in new danger. If he doesn’t get out, others who share his violent creed could easily decide to take up where he left off, and finish the job he was not able to finish. Wright could even incite them and encourage them from prison.

 

All this has happened to me because I dared to stand up for the freedom of speech against violent intimidation. I urge the court to do the same thing: to show that the court is aware that the freedom of speech is the foundation of every free society, and that we take violent acts intended to suppress speech not just as the crime of one or two or three individuals, but as a challenge to the very foundations of our society and to basic principles of human rights.

 

Giving a lighter sentence to Daoud Wright would send the message to thousands of others like them that they can plot freely to murder those who say things that offend their evil ideology, and the consequences will be slight.

 

Please send the opposite message. Let Daoud Wright and those who think like him know that if they plot to kill Americans for the crime of speaking out against injustice, we will just speak out all the more – and they will pay the full price for their crimes.

 

Thank you.

 

The court did not listen, and gave this savage 28 years. He will, of course, be out sooner than that. The fat jihadi actually started crying when he had to make a statement — so dishonest, I couldn’t believe it. The defense wanted him sentenced to only 16 years, so at least the 28-year sentence is better than that. After he gave Wright 28 years, the judge ordered him to stay away from me and everyone close to me. And he will be on supervised release. So in that sense, it could have been worse.

 

Pamela Geller

 

“Man gets 28 years in plot to behead conservative blogger,” AP, December 19, 2017:

 

BOSTON (AP) — A man convicted of leading an Islamic State-inspired plot to behead a conservative blogger who upset Muslims when she organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest was sentenced Tuesday to 28 years in prison.

 

David Wright, who’s 28 years old, was sentenced by a judge in Boston’s federal courthouse two months after jurors found him guilty of conspiring with his uncle and a Rhode Island man to kill blogger Pamela Geller on behalf of the terror group.

 

Wright’s attorneys had asked for a 16-year sentence, saying he should be given the chance to redeem himself after serving his time. Wright insisted he never really wanted to hurt anyone but pretended to support the Islamic State group to get attention online.

 

Prosecutors and Geller wanted Wright to get life in prison. Prosecutors portrayed Wright as the leader of the conspiracy to kill Geller, who has spearheaded scores of events across the nation to decry Islamic extremism, such as the cartoon contest in Garland, Texas.

 

The plot to behead Geller, of New York, was never carried out. Instead, Wright’s uncle Ussamah Rahim told Wright on a recorded phone call that he decided to go after “those boys in blue,” referring to police. Wright told his uncle that was “beautiful” and encouraged him to delete all the data from his computer before carrying out his attack.

 

Hours later, Rahim was fatally shot by authorities after he lunged at them with a knife when they approached him in Boston.

 

Prosecutors said Wright collected dozens of gruesome Islamic State videos and documents that encouraged violence against Americans, including a manifesto that said America’s days are “numbered.” In court documents, they accused him of trying to “deceive” the court into believing that he never meant any harm.

 

Wright, who was more than 500 pounds when he was arrested, testified during the trial that he started sharing Islamic State propaganda because he was desperate for attention and an escape. But he said the plan to kill Geller was just “trash talk” and claimed he never believed his uncle was serious about attacking police….

 

Geller, who spoke at Wright’s sentencing, urged the judge to sentence him to life in prison, saying it was “impossible to overstate the devastation” he had brought to her life. She said she had been forced to live in fear and spend tens of thousands of dollars on security.

 

“There is no assurance that anyone can give me that he would not resume his quest to kill me and my relatives,” she said.

 

Pamela Geller’s shocking new book, “FATWA: HUNTED IN AMERICA” is now available on Amazon. It’s Geller’s tell all, her story – and it’s every story – it’s what happens when you stand for freedom today. Buy it. Now. Here.
