Tnuza Jamal Hassan St. Catherine University Arsonist


01/17/2018 Tnuza Jamal Hassan St. Catherine University Arsonist   Former studentTnuza Jamal Hassan was arrested after being seen on security video setting as many aseight fires at the private Catholic St. Catherine University campus. Hasan had withdrawn because of a family vacation to her home country Ethiopia, but apparently visited just to start fires in retaliation for  U.S. military destroying schools in Iraq and  Afghanistan. When she was identified and arrested she told police she wanted the school to burn to the ground and that her intent was to hurt people.  She also told police and fire investigators, “You guys are lucky that I don’t know how to build a bomb because I would have done that.”  Since nobody cares if they get hurt, she  wrote a letter to her roommates about “bringing back the Caliphate,” an Islamic state. The letter scared Hassan’s roommates, who turned it over to campus security. 

Local media declined to use the term "terrorist" but Jihad Watch questioned if she had been a radicalized muslim. Later it was discovered that in Sept. 19, 2017: Hassan attempted to travel to Kabul, Afghanistan, "to join and support al Qaida and the 'Islamic Resistance,'" reaching Dubai in that effort, but was prevented from traveling further because she lacked a visa.  Hassan's family filed a missing persons report with authorities following her departure. In  Dec. 29, 2017: Hassan again attempted to leave the United States with her mother with tickets to Ethiopia, On  Jan. 8, 2018 Hassan reportedly ran away from her mother's home and stayed on the University of St. Catherine's campus. On Jan. 23, 2018 the FBI began investigating, and on Feb. 7, 2018 Hassan faces federal terroriswm charges, including attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. On  Feb. 9, 2018: Federal Prosecutors file a memorandum in support of detention arguing for Hassan presenting a danger to the community and therefore should remain in custody pending trial and a memorandum revealed whe twice attempted to leave the country to join al-Qaida, 

 she is found guilty, she could spend up to 48 years in prison for those federal charges alone.

      Minneapolis Woman Charged With Terrorism Offenses, Arson, And Making False Statements United States Attorney Gregory G. Brooker today announced a three-count indictment charging TNUZA JAMAL HASSAN, 19, with attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, arson, and making a false statement. indictment, on September 19, 2017, HASSAN, a former student at St. Catherine University (SCU) in St. Paul, Minnesota, attempted to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, namely, al-Qa’ida. On September 22, 2017, in an interview with FBI Agents, HASSAN was asked whether she authored and delivered a letter to two fellow students at SCU in March 2017. The letter sought to encourage fellow students to “join the jihad in fighting” and to “[j]oin Al Qaeda, Taliban, or Al Shabaab.” HASSAN knowingly made a false statement to FBI Agents when she stated (1) she did not write the letter, (2) she did not know who wrote the letter, and (3) did not know how the letter came to be delivered to her fellow students.  According to the indictment, on January 17, 2018, HASSAN started several fires on the campus of SCU, including in St. Mary Hall, which she maliciously damaged.

Winter is prosecuting the case. This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force, St. Paul Police Department, and arson investigators from the St. Paul Fire Department.

  1. The name of the university doesn't actually have the apostrophe-s in it.
  2. "Arson Attack" is descriptive, not part of a proper name, and should thus not be capitalized
  3. "Arson Attack" seems redundant. We wouldn't say "murder attack" or "robbery attack". --Nat Gertler (talk) 20:25, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep -- disclaimer, I started this article. Nominator NatGertler initially placed a {{prod}} on the article. When I left some questions, on their talk page, about their policy interpretations, they called my questions "badgering". I can't help noticing that this nomination is essentially the same as that used in the prod, even though I thought I had raised good questions over their interpretations of BLP1E and BLPCRIME. I find that disappointing. Geo Swan (talk) 14:37, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
    • Would you care to restate your !vote rationale in terms of policy, rather than in terms of attacking me? --Nat Gertler (talk) 15:35, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
      • Some people conflate civil and collegial substantive discussion over issues with personal attacks. I encourage you to make sure you don't make this conflation. It is not good for the project.
      • On your talk page I responded to the BLP1E claim you placed in your prod, yesterday. I reminded you that ALL three of the numbered subsections of BLP1E are supposed to be satisfied, before an individual is considered an instance of BLP1E. I drew your attention to the phrase "...is likely to remain, a low-profile individual."
        I explained that domestic terrorists, in the USA, are very rare. I compared US domestic terrorist to plain ordinary garden variety murderers. We never cover plain ordinary murderers. We cover a small number of murderers who are in some way exceptional. Ordinary murdeers are adequately covererd in our articles on murder, domestic violence, firearms, etc., because they are so similar.
        Domestic US terrorists are so rare that claim removed for BLP reasons Geo Swan (talk) 22:27, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
        • Domestic US terrorists are not all that rare, alas. The list you will find at Terrorism in the United States will show you many such incidents, and that is certainly not all of them. I have edited out your claims here about the subject of this article, who has not been convicted of anything and discussion about her is limited by WP:BLP guidelines. --Nat Gertler (talk) 22:46, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete or Rename The event is potentially notable not the person. TheGreatWikiGeorge (talk) 16:42, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete This is an article about a 19 year-old woman who appears to me to be having some form of breakdown. The incident has had no lasting impact on either the building or the institution. In the very unlikely event that this becomes something more than an unfortunate episode in a young woman's life, we can always recreate the article. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 00:30, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
    • Ms Hassan may or may not be having a mental health incident.
      Yes, the incident caused no actual casualties, and caused little physical damage. But, she appears to have waived her right to protect herself from self-incrimination, and willing made some damaging confessions. Anyone who actually read the article, or did their own google search and took even a minute looking at the articles covering her, will have seen she told investigators that she had hoped to burn the University to the ground, and cause extensive casualties.
      I suggest it is not her actual result that matters, but rather her intent. Many mass killers could also be described as young people who appeared to be having some kind of breakdown. Their youth or possible mental health issues do not keep them from being notable.
      You suggest this will likely be nothing "more than an unfortunate episode in a young woman's life"Geo Swan (talk) 02:45, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
      • I have read both our article and the sources used for it. I am aware of what she is alleged to have told investigators. She set eight small fires. "All but one of the fires were in trash cans," according to this report. Her actions and words do not align. At this point it is not known where Hassan was born or if she is a US citizen, yet she is being described here as "a domestic terrorist". This is irresponsible at best. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 03:57, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
        • There has been a bunch of problematic content involved. I just had to go strip out article claims that there was a list of charges of which arson was the worst (source only said one charge of arson); that she was still in custody (source, a Monday article, only said that she was in custody on Friday night); and that she would have her next hearing next year (reality: next month.) The net effect of demonizing her with false information is of real concern. That the same editor asserted today the suspect's guilt on another Wikipedia page keeps this a matter of severe BLP concern. --Nat Gertler (talk) 16:18, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete per WP:NOTNEWS / WP:TOOSOON / WP:BLP. The subject has not yet been convicted, and the article reads like a news story. No apparent lasting significance just yet. If the incident is still remembered in six months, then sure, an article would be appropriate. But Wikipedia is not a newspaper. K.e.coffman (talk) 04:28, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete Seems like routine news-of-the-day, a minor campus crime incident. Nothing particularly notable about arson, no significant impact beyond the local region. ValarianB(talk) 16:24, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Note - I was recently criticized by the article creator for having edited the article while it was under AFD. As this is a BLP of a subject who is likely receiving more attention (and thus having this page referenced) than they ever have or will again, I thought it best to remove or correct statements that did not match sources, particularly those that painted her in a negative light. This included falsehoods and unsourced damaging claims that were added by the complaining poster after the start of the AFD (such as the claim that her next court date was more than a year away, that she had "charges" of which one was the "most serious" when the source listed just a single charge, and that she was "currently" being held in custody.) If anyone wishes to see the article's state before the AFD, it's here. --Nat Gertler (talk) 17:21, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
    • I also edited the article after it was nominated for deletion. I removed the categories "Muslim terrorists" (which is does not exist) and "arsonists". There is no source indicating that Hassan is a Muslim. She has not been charged with terrorism. She has not been convicted of arson. Geo Swan should probably be banned from BLPs. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 03:21, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the debate. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page (such as the article's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this page.

She initially denied, but later admitted to, authoring a recruitment letter. (KSTP) "Why would you live under a manmade law over the law of Allah," Hassan wrote in the recruitment letter, which prosecutors say she admitted to writing after initially lying to the FBI agents about who wrote the letter or who delivered it to the students.

Sept 2017 Hassan had been questioned by the FBI several months before the alleged arson.  In September, FBI agents interviewed her about whether she authored and delivered a letter to two fellow students at St. Catherine in March 2017. Prosecutors allege the letter sought to encourage fellow students to "join the jihad in fighting" and to join al-Qaida, the Taliban or al-Shabab. mpr

Sept. 19, 2017: Hassan attempted to travel to Kabul, Afghanistan, "to join and support al Qaida and the 'Islamic Resistance,'" according to a memorandum.

Dec. 29, 2017: Hassan again attempted to leave the United States with her mother. They had tickets to Ethiopia, however, Hassan allegedly packed identification documents belonging to her older sister as well as cold-weather clothing and a jacket. (KSTP)

In an arraignment and detention hearing for Tnuza Hassan, a 19-year-old former St.Catherine University student, ..

When she allegedly carried out the arson, she was apparently hiding from her family at the school.

Hassan had been questioned by the FBI several months before the alleged arson.

In September, FBI agents interviewed her about whether she authored and delivered a letter to two fellow students at St. Catherine in March 2017. Prosecutors allege the letter sought to encourage fellow students to "join the jihad in fighting" and to join al-Qaida, the Taliban or al-Shabab.

"Why would you live under a manmade law over the law of Allah," Hassan wrote in the recruitment letter, which prosecutors say she admitted to writing after initially lying to the FBI agents about who wrote the letter or who delivered it to the students.

two separate occasions in the last five months, Hassan's family reported her as missing to law enforcement, according to a memorandum in support of her detention filed Friday evening by federal prosecutors.

On Sept. 19, Hassan attempted to travel to Afghanistan to join al-Qaida. A day later, her family reported her missing. Hassan got as far as Dubai, "but for a lack of visa, she may well be in the ranks of (al-Qaida) at this moment," according to a court document.

On Dec. 29, Hassan again tried to leave the United States for Ethiopia with her mother. But authorities stopped Hassan from boarding and her mother chose not to travel on.

Nearly three weeks later, she was found hiding in a dorm lounge at St. Catherine after she allegedly set the fires at buildings at the university on Jan. 17.

But it wasn't until Feb. 7 that federal prosecutors charged her with attempting to provide support to al-Qaida, arson and making a false statement to the FBI.

 Hassan has "made great efforts to hide her tracks from the law enforcement" when she was planning her travel to Afghanistan, where she hoped she would join al-Qaida.

She left her cell phone behind and booked a flight from Minneapolis to Dubai because she did not want to alert law enforcement if she purchased a ticket to Kabul, 

entertained the idea of releasing Hassan to her family under house arrest once he learns more about her family.

He wondered whether "we are continuing her self-radicalization" if Hassan remains in detention. "We are emphasizing it. We are encouraging it," he said.

Winter said Hassan's self-radicalization started by watching YouTube videos of well-known jihadist leaders, like Anwar al-Awlaki, a leading influence on jihadists

lawyer:  "very unsophisticated" woman who had no contact with anyone in Afghanistan. He said the fires at the university did not cause damage and were put out even before St. Paul firefighters arrived.

Friday memorandum that Hassan "violently resisted jailers and federal agents, repeatedly kicking one officer, and attempting to scratch both a jailer and an FBI agent," forcing her to be put in restraints.

But Sicoli said the government failed to mention that Hassan is a devout Muslim who wears the burqa, a veil that covers a woman's entire face with a slit left for the eyes. A man was not supposed to touch her unless he is married to her, he said When the agents attempted to remove the burqa, a scuffle ensued because Hassan refused to let agents remove her burqa.

mother and sister kept shaking their heads in disbelief when Winter said Hassan told agents that she will "kill innocent Americans" since American forces are "killing innocent Muslims" in Muslim countries.

A marshal told Hassan's family to stop shaking their heads.
