How can radical Imam Marcus Dwayne Robertson, also known as Abu Taubah, be free when he was the leader of the “Forty Thieves,” a group of Muslims in the early 1990s who stockpiled weapons and explosives [“Wife talks to the FBI,” News, June 15]?

U.S. prosecutors said Robertson also was involved in killings several people and in the attempted killings of police officers. Something is very wrong with the system! He was released from prison after serving just four years.
