Good. I hope he enjoys his time behind bars. Should be up for a longer sentence, IMO.

A 17-year-old from Virginia pleaded guilty in court on Thursday to charges of conspiring to help Islamic State militants, the first time the United States has prosecuted a minor as an adult in such a case.

Ali Amin, of Manassas, Virginia, used Twitter and his blog to provide instructions on how to use the virtual currency Bitcoin to send funds to the militants, according to court documents.

Prosecutors said Amin also helped another Virginia resident, Reza Niknejad, to travel to Syria to join the group that has taken control of areas of Iraq and Syria over the past year in a campaign marked by mass killings and beheadings.

The SITE monitoring service, which follows social media postings by Jihadist militants, said Amin had some 4,000 Twitter followers and was in communication with well-known Islamic State fighters and recruiters.

SITE said on his site he displayed a picture of the White House topped with an Islamic State black flag and included a note that the site was "dedicated to raising awareness about the upcoming conquest of the Americas."

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Dana Boente told a press conference that the magnitude of the charges led to prosecution of Amin as an adult.

"It's something we take very, very seriously, the age of someone...but at the end of the day, it's a matter of public safety," Boente said. Amin faces up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced on Aug. 28.

He should be shot, just that simple. He helped known jihadists murder. He helped a person join the murdering bastards--shoot him..
Some things are just that simply fixed. We may lose this thing if we keep on being pansy asses about it my friend.
Of course our enemy has willing accomplices that try to keep us being pansy asses and not serious or tough enough. WW2 showed us how to defeat such dangerous enemies --we need to go back to that strategy before it is too damn late IMHO.--Tyr

Oooh.....the poor little innocent child. He's being victimized by those mean old white guys in the American government. I'm sure it's all being trumped up because of his race and religion.... and that all he really wants to do is stay home and play video games (non-violent ones, of course) and study for school. Probably was headed to college and planning to be an upstanding member of the community. How tragic. (just channeling the usual morons on the left here)
