#AceNewsReport – May.23: Organic farmer John Letts, 58, and his wife Sally Lane, 56, are on trial accused of sending or trying to send sums totalling £1,723 to their son Jack even though they had every reason to believe he had joined #IslamicState in Syria: The Old Bailey heard today that, months before the money was allegedly sent, Jack made extreme comments beneath a Facebook post of his old school friend Linus Doubtfire, who had completed his Commando Artillery Course in the British Army MailOnline reported.
Jack Letts, a British Muslim convert who allegedly ran off to join ISIS, ranted on Facebook about wanting to kill British soldiers, a court has heard:

Ms Lane allegedly urged him not to be ‘so stupid’, saying: ‘How did we bring you up to be so easily manipulated?’
He responded: ‘I admit it was wrong if I seemed like I was joking. I genuinely believe attacking the British Army is a very praiseworthy action when the intention is correct. I would happily kill each and every one of Linus Unit personally.’
He continued: ‘This message for you, Mum and (younger brother) Tyler, I honestly want to cut Linus head off……………………’I hope he finds himself lost in Beji or Fallujah one day and sees me whilst I’m armed and I put six bullets in his head.’
His mother replied: ‘I’m really hoping that your disgusting comments about cutting people’s heads off are not coming from you, i.e. someone else is using your account.’

The messages between mother and son
March 2015, Jack writes: ‘Please convey to the British police that I’m not planning on coming back to their broken country.
‘Convey to them from me ‘Die in your rage soon you’ll be the ones being raided!”
In July, responding to a Facebook post about his friend completing an Army course, Jack commented: ‘I would love to perform a martyrdom operation in this scene.’
Ms Lane replied: ‘How did we bring you up to be so easily manipulated?’
Jack responded: ‘I admit it was wrong if I seemed like I was joking. I genuinely believe attacking the British Army is a very praiseworthy action when the intention is correct. I would happily kill each and every one [in the] Unit personally.
Ms Lane replied: ‘I’m really hoping that your disgusting comments about cutting people’s heads off are not coming from you, i.e. someone else is using your account.’
In September 2015, Ms Lane tells him: ‘I would go to prison for you if I thought it gave you a better chance of actually reaching your 25th birthday.’
In October, Ms Lane told Jack: ‘Clearly I indulged you, I made you think you were the centre of the universe. I regret this bitterly.
‘I was a terrible parent that gave you too much power as a child – I should have made you adapt to the world, instead of adapting myself to your world. I have done you no favours by doing this.’
