Gee, that was a shocker now wasn’t it..?
But wait, we’re supposed to believe he was just sabotaging the plane in order to receive more overtime. Reports are that other planes have crashed from the exact same type of sabotage, the pilots unable to read data from the plane’s sensors.
From the Associated Press:
A federal judge cited new evidence of potential terrorism sympathies in denying bail for a mechanic charged with sabotaging an American Airlines jetliner.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Chris McAliley imposed pretrial detention for 60-year-old Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani at Wednesday’s hearing.
The new evidence presented by prosecutors includes that Alani has a brother in Iraq who may be involved with the Islamic State extremist group as well as statements Alani made about wishing harm on non-Muslims.
Alani is a naturalized U.S. citizen from Iraq. He’s not charged with a terror-related crime.
Alani is charged with sabotaging a Boeing 737 with 150 people aboard at Miami International Airport because ongoing labor negotiations were jeopardizing his chances at earning overtime.
