The man who pleaded guilty to stabbing two men at the Mall of America last November was sentenced Friday. Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham, 20, will have to serve 10 of his 15-year sentence in prison. With good behavior, the last five years of the sentence could be served as probation.
Authorities said Abdiraham stabbed two brothers - 19-year-old Alexander Sanchez and 25-year-old John Sanchez - in a dressing room at the mall's Macy' store.
In the statement read by his attorney following his guilty plea last month, Abdiraham said he went to the Mall of America to answer the "call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State." The statement added, "I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah."
He declined to make an additional statement at sentencing Friday.
A victims' advocate read an impact statement on behalf of the two individuals who were stabbed in the incident. They said they both remained too injured and too horrified to attend the hearing.
However, family members of the two were in attendance
Better than nothing, I guess.
Slap on the wrist.
Based ln his original booking photo, I say give him back to the Sanchez brothers.
Three hots and a cot.. Wish they would deport him...
So, he’s out at age 30, prime age to be fit and ready for another Jihad
He was a good boy, he used to cut the grass....

CNN: The motive remains unclear
Yeah, I didn’t hear any remorse in his statements.
I grew up with Lebanese and Syrian Christians.
THEY were good neighbors and friends.
This guy? Not so much.
Apparently Mahad can not abide the Holy Trinity.
He thinks its Polytheism
I see nothing about deporting the shithole dweller.
One of our local Somali mistakes.
You saw nothing because it wasn’t even discussed.
He’ll be out in 6 months in Muslemsota.
He’ll go right back to jihad as soon as he gets out.
This is an admitted unrepentant terrorist attack. Why not a life sentence??
Actually, it sounds like he will have to do at least the 10.
Which is still too light.
He can get a job as a cop in minnesota
