Rubashkin Judge's Shocking Ruling

Judge Linda Reade, who sentenced Sholom Rubashkin to 27 years in prison, has recently sentenced a terrorist to less than 5 years for his crime.

Matzav.com

A Lebanese man in the United States has been sentenced to nearly five years in prison for arranging to send weapons to a Hezbollah member in Lebanon.

According to prosecutors, Fadi Yassine, 43, colluded with others to arrange a shipment of firearms from the Iowa state city of Cedar Rapids to Lebanon to resell them to the Shia militia group, designated as a terrorist organization in the US.

What is most shocking about this short sentence is the judge in the case -
the notorious Linda Reade.

Reade is infamous for her role in the trial of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin. In that trial, one where the plaintiff was not charged with violent, terror related crimes, the US District Judge saw fit to give a 27 year sentence. Rabbi Rubashkin still languishes in prison.

She is now being exposed as a true anti-Semite considering the difference in sentencing.

Law isn't fair
If you're charged with a federal crime, it's much more time. Simple as that. Different crimes have different punishments. Not saying what she did Is right in any way shape or form. Dwelling over things that will have literally no effect won't help.

Not saying she is innocent
This story is missing an important piece. What were the sentencing guidelines. Federal court is very specific. In Sholom Mordechai's case I believe Its range had a max of 27 years and she gave the max. What was this terrorists range. That would tell us about her.

We should all be doing more to free Sholom R but its stupid to make connotations from other cases.

#3 good point.
We also have to know what her comments about the case and her sentencing of this terrorist, were.
If she said for example that she gave the max, and which she could have given much more, then OK.
But if she said anything that indicates she is OK with him getting 5 years and not more, then her own words would convict her as an antisemite.

Where are the feelings!
I am broken while reading these comments.
Broken because instead of focusing on the fact that there is a father/grandfather/husband bal chessed in prison for 27 years when he deserved less then 3 for his crime, your all focusing on the wrong point!
Try God help him and his family out! Not justify this judge

#6 you are missing the point
First of all how dare you even use the connotation that the other commenters and myself did not and are not doing what we can to help. #2. There is an important point unless you stam want to lament and blame other for self righteous enrichment. If we would like to prove that she is bias in her federal guidelines following you have to be able to show a trend that she is following. It is important to understand her comments and her following of the federal guidelines. Because they are just that guidelines and not rules. A judge has the ability to deviate from the guidelines "within reason". Obviously in Sholom Mordechai's case she threw everything she could at him and it was wrong!!

#3 well said
You are 100 percent right. The appeals taking place are looking at her behavior. She has shown bias with regards to her husband who was involved with the prosecutors office. The question is what other biases exist. I'm sure there are many

this happens all to often:/
and there's no justice in the judicial system.
its mind boggling how white collar crimes get more than and vehicular manslaughter or worse crimes.

Poor journalism
You need to check the maximum sentencing for each case to see if she granted the terrorist any leniencies. It's possible that she gave him the maximum sentence possible, in which case this article is just plain stupid.

Attacking this judge will not help Rubashkin's cause.

the whole thing started up
from the kosher buchters in nyc, as they wanted rubashkin out of business, because his prices were cheaper,l'm not at liberty to tell you how l know, this includes the ou too, they didnt like the way the animal was hoist, but rubashkin says this is what the us agri wanted, are they sorry, l don't know, ,l'm sure hashem will even out the score, it's very sad, anti-semic are all over, it takes very little to stir them up,

But we all believe Moshiach is coming now! May Rabbi Rubashkin be zoche to serve the Shor Habar at the seuda today.

Disgusting
She got away with presiding a case she was not permitted to judge and now this. Corruption at its worst. But there is a lesson in here for us- just because someone in power is making a judgement and everyone else seems to be in agreement, or at least, letting it stand- does not mean that there is any truth or justice to it. Never just follow the crowd like a sheep, Find out the facts first, and if you can't, don't judge.

A travesty
At what point does Shalom Rubashkin's case and what happened to him see the light of day? It was plain and simple a travesty of justice, same as Pollard. We are not safe and will not be until Moshiach. It is ridiculous. He should never have had to serve a day.

Yassine pleaded guilty and took a deal. Supposedly SMR was also offered a plea deal and declined.

Wrong
The maximum sentence for conspiring to violate the Arms Export Control Act is 5 years. Why the outrage?

To #25 and his or her ilk
Colluding and taking actions to "commit" terrorism is a crime, and where it involves multi states there is an extra felony charge involved.

Yes, shocking
I also believe most of these cold hearted comments are coming from one 'outsider' . Of course the entire community is with rubashkin and can logically see that this judge is scum., And we pray that that will be exposed and he'll be released.

Morris Allen
Allis Moron who is the rabbi of a conservative synagogue in MN and in charge of hechsher (his own hashgacha) was one of the first people to bring negative attention to agri and postville. He wouldn't let up and made negative pr for Sholom Rubashkin. After that he got PETA involved, the Feds, etc. he's the real instigator here. Sadddest part is, he's a Jew and was and is so passionate about Sholom rubashkin being guilty and worthy of his sentence (ch"v)

WHAT ARE THE SENTENCING GUIDELINES ?
IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BENEFICIAL FOR COL TO HAVE A COMMENT FROM A LAWYER AS TO WHAT THE MAXIMUM SENTENCING WAS IN THIS CASE, THEN WE WOULD SEE IF THERE IS A REASON TO BE UPSET ABOUT HER RULING. WITHOUT THAT KNOWLEDGE THIS ARTICLE IS MEANINGLESS.

She gave him the maximum penalty. Can't be because she hates Jews.

Just being honest
It goes together someone cruel to innocent is pitting the cruel
So many congressmen prosecutors law professor's and more and more say the verdict of Sholom Mordche is outrageous was a blood libel

that's the max the law will allow?
no wonder potential terrorists are willing to get involved in their dirty work; what's five years for helping send arms to terrorists who, in turn, use those arms to kill dozens of innocents. which group of morons voted this law into being? Ogden Nash said it well: The law is so in love with the law it's forgotten common sense."

A complete disgrace
There is no way that a white color crime has more stringent guideline that involvement in a terrorist attack. Totally and beyond disproportionate. Can't even compare. We have to cry out to Hashem to end this galus now and bring Sholom Mordechai home to his family today!

Maximum for Arms Control Act is 10 yrs?
Criminal and civil penalties for export control violations can be severe. For munitions export control violations, the statute authorizes a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million per violation and, for an individual person, up to 10 years imprisonment. In addition, munitions violations can result in the imposition of a maximum civil fine of $500,000 per violation of the ITAR, as well as debarment from exporting defense articles or services. For dual-use export control violations, criminal penalties can reach a maximum of $500,000 per violation and, for an individual person, up to 10 years imprisonment. Dual-use violations can also be subject to civil fines up to $12,000 per violation, as well as denial of export privileges. It should be noted that in many enforcement cases, both criminal and civil penalties are imposed.
