This is infuriating, but not surprising. The comments as well. Apparently the news organization is filtering out those comments offering support to the accused for "violating their user guidelines"

Ahmadullah Sais Niazi of Tustin also ordered to submit to electronic monitoring when released and to surrender his passport.
During the hearing, Eliot entered as exhibits a picture of Niazi atop of a military vehicle from 1992 in Afghanistan, a letter from his brother-in-law with the letterhead of Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin, a suspected terrorist organization. Eliot said that in an e-mail sent in April 2008, Niazi referred to the United States as an “adulteress,” referred to the rise of the Taliban and wrote, “the end is near.”

Scolnik argued that the evidence presented did not prove that Niazi is a terrorist or a danger. He said Niazi sent money to Afghanistan to care for his brother's children after he died in a car crash. The letter Niazi received from his brother on the letterhead of a suspected terrorist organization was not evidence of ties to a terrorist organization but “evidence that he keeps in touch with his family.”
