    Just further proof that the police shouldn't have allowed this worthless waste of flesh and oxygen to be taken alive.

    If we can do it legally with Timothy McVeigh, we can do if for this guy too.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    And the point would be to forsake the Bill of Rights because of the cost involved?

    Actually, I believe the AQ folks are distancing themselves from this. Yes, they accept the "help" of Chechnyans in conflicts around the world, but it's the dog on the leash sort of arrangement in my view. Once the dog goes off leash they want nothing to do with it.

    No, no, no. I'm just stating that this will be very challenging from a number of standoints, including the financial burden of security detail. In fact, I'm not sure true security will be possible since the target zone for terrorists is the entire United States essentially.

    Perhaps, but even though it was minimally successful by their sick standards, it still captures the world's attention for a week. You know they enjoyed watching the entire city of Boston getting shut down by a teenager with homemade pressure-cooker bombs.

    give the prick his trial.

    this terrorism **** pisses me off to no end, but screwing up our founding principles to deal with the terrorists is awful, also. there are a bunch down in Guantanamo bay who should be tried, as well.

    So what do you propose we do instead?

    Personally I'm very happy this young nimrod will be tried in civilian court. I believe it will be very good for us to show ourselves, and the world, we can deal with our citizens in a manner consistent with our talk when they go off the rails in this way.

    The police and the FBI did their jobs with alacrity, now let's see if the court system can do the same.

    Of course they should. They can't mine a dead body for information.
