PITTSBURGH (AP) A convicted felon who prosecutors have said sympathized with the Taliban has been sentenced to nearly eight years in prison for using his friends gun at a Pittsburgh-area firing range.
Thirty-five-year-old Khalifa Ali Al-Akili, of Wilkinsburg, argued that hes a devout Muslim who has not been in trouble since 2007, despite a lengthy criminal record dating to his teens that prohibits him from possessing firearms.
Al-Akili was sentenced to seven years, 10 months in prison Thursday by a federal judge in Pittsburgh after pleading guilty in November to using the gun at the range in Trafford in July 2010

From the article: "At the time of his arrest last March, prosecutors argued Al-Akili was a Taliban supporter, though most documents relating to that aspect of the case remain under seal." Why?? Big Sis strikes again I guess??
I have a feeling this thread should be bookmarked for later incredulity.
Sent to prison for shooting a gun.
If he was that dangerous why was he walking the street.
“Under seal” I guess this means the wookie will be visiting him..
Good point. I’d hate to see a terrorist attack in Pittsburgh, but the reality is these asshats are everywhere. And we have a state dept that seems to aid & abet.
In my opinion, it’s just a matter of time.

Hasn't been in trouble except for breaking the law, anyway.
Please no. Anytime Wookie & her floppy-eared hubby show up around here, they shut down my end of the city.
Well she visited one jihadist in the hospital, it’s not a stretch to say she’ll visit one in prison..
Ping for your burgh list
Did yinz see this??
