North Carolina Would-Be Terrorist Faces Murder Charge

posted on February 4, 2016

The Morganton, N.C., teenager charged last June with plotting to kill up to 1,000 people to show his support for the Islamic terrorist group ISIS has now been charged with robbing and murdering an elderly neighbor to finance his jihad, the Charlotte Observer reports

A newly unsealed federal indictment alleges that 19-year-old Justin Sullivan, who called himself “The Mujahid,” stole his stepfather’s rifle, broke into the home of 74-year-old neighbor John Bailey Clark in December 2014, shot him three times in the head, and planned to use $689 that he stole from the man to buy a semi-automatic rifle with which to carry out his planned terrorist mass murder. Clark was found in a shallow grave nearby.

In addition to Sullivan, at least 55 other U.S. citizens have been charged with crimes related to ISIS, according to “ISIS in America,” a report released by George Washington University last December. Such figures call into question claims by anti-gunners that private citizens don’t need guns to protect against extremist terrorists.
