ISIS Supporter Zachary Clark Gets 20 Years After 3 Overdoses, Lone Wolf Tattoo

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC The Times (UK) Honduras - The Source 

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 12– An ISIS suspect was presented on the afternoon of November 27, 2019 in  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Court - which earlier that same day was the locale of a total lack of transparency, inconsistent and at odds with not only the law but this presentation. Inner City Press covered it, in person.

Then in August 10, 2020, from the US Attorney's office, this: "announced that ZACHARY CLARK, a/k/a “Umar Kabir,” a/k/a “Umar Shishani,” a/k/a “Abu Talha,” pled guilty to attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (“ISIS”).  CLARK pled guilty today in Manhattan federal court before U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald.  CLARK is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Buchwald on February 9, 2021, at 12:00 p.m."

 In fact, due to COVID, the sentencing did not occur until May 12. It was in person; there was no call-in line unlike another sentencing the same morning across the street in 40 Foley Square. Inner City Press went to cover it in person, so only three tweets:

Now, for material support of ISIS, Zachary Clark is being sentenced  @SDNYLIVE , in person. He's in orange WCDOC jumpsuit. He ran ISIS channels. 1/x 12:53 PM · May 12, 2021·Twitter for Android View Tweet activity 1  Retweet 2  Likes Inner City Press @innercitypress · 8m Replying to  @innercitypress DOJ wants 20 years; Federal Defender wants less. Judge Buchwald is reading from his plea, calls it inapologetic. "He was only sorry he got caught." 2/x Inner City Press @innercitypress · 5m Judge: Clark had 3 near-death overdoses. Says general deterrence is most important here.  She sentences him to 240 months, then supervision for life.

   More: AUSA Matthew Hellman hammered away; Federal Defender Marviny cited a psychological evaluation. Judge Buchwald wasn't buying it, adding that she did not think that Clark can be a productive member of society but that she hope so.

In twenty years. The case is US v. Clark, Watch this site.
