North Carolina Terrorist Accused Of Plotting To Kill Witnesses

A North Carolina man sentenced to prison as part of a homegrown terrorist ring has been accused of plotting to kill witnesses who testified against him at trial.

An affidavit unsealed in federal court this week accuses Hysen Sherifi of plotting against the witnesses from his jail cell. Authorities say an FBI informant posing as a hit man met with Sherifi's brother and a female friend and accepted $5,000 and a photo of an intended victim.

FBI agents arrested Shkumbin Sherifi and Nevine A. Elshiekh and charged them with use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire.

Hysen Sherifi was sentenced to 45 years in prison earlier this month as part of a conspiracy to attack the Marine base at Quantico, Va., and dtargets abroad.

      Turn him over to some of us on this sight. Some of us on here know how to handle this person. Now the justice system, now that's another story. They probably don't want to offend him. Or violate his right to "free speach."

    They should immediately commute his sentence to a death sentence to be carried out as soon as possible if he is found guilty. Imagine what he will do when he is released early, as many inmates are.

    Really? Just wish he had strapped a bomb to himself and tested it. If you don't like America. Get the hell out! By the mere mention that you plotted to kill witnesses against you means that you are weak. So very weak that your intentions were foiled and strong people stood up against your pathetic views.
