    Terrorist Who Plotted Attack on New York City to Be Released

    Terrorist Who Plotted Attack on New York City to Be Released

    Link

    So here's a guy convicted in federal court for planning and attempting three bombings, is sentenced to 30 years in prison in 1993, and is scheduled to be released on February 19th for, among other things, good behavior??!?! This is so appalling as to almost be beyond words. To me, this is a perfect example of why treating terrorists like drug dealers or purse snatchers is wrong. If he'd received life in prison with no possibility of parole, that would be one thing, but to receive credit for good behavior? Boggles the mind.

    I wrote to both my Senator and Representative about this case. We need to keep the fight against terrorists in the countries that are supporting them, and not try to treat it as a law enforcement issue.

    You would think being convicted for terrorism would be a life sentence automatically WTF!

    He needs to be given a bath before he's released.

    An acid bath that is.
