A California terrorist who plotted to wage war against the United States was sentenced Monday to more than 12 1/2 years in prison, prosecutors said.
Gregory Patterson, 24, of Gardena was part of a domestic terrorist cell that intended to wage jihad, or holy war, against U.S. military facilities, as well as Israeli and Jewish targets and "infidels," the U.S. Justice Department said.
Another member of the cell, Levar Washington, 30, was sentenced to 22 years in prison last month. The men had pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court last December to conspiring to wage war against the United States.
The man who organized the terror cell -- Kevin James -- also has pleaded guilty and is to be sentenced Feb. 9.
A fourth alleged member -- Hammad Samana -- has been found unfit to stand trial and is receiving psychiatric care at a federal prison facility.
James created Jam'iyyat Ul-Islam Is-Saheeh while in California's New Folsom Prison in 1997. Washington and Patterson conducted about a dozen armed robberies of gas stations to get money for the group's planned attacks in the Los Angeles area, Justice Department officials said. Their targets allegedly included the Los Angeles airport, the Israeli consulate, Army recruiting centers and a military base at Manhattan Beach, prosecutors said.
Good riddance, Marin County scum.
The Article says he is from Gardena...that is in the Los Angeles Basin..not Marin County.. I think you are thinking of that other RAT
Maybe Juan McLame will import even more of them than Jorge Boosh!!!!!!
When I say “Marin County scum”, it does not apply to location, but rather to general distaste. It can be used in New York just as much as it can be used anywhere else outside of Marin County.
