Let me hasten to add: I'm not against capital punishment though I don't have any caviler notions about its use

Oddly, considering my politics, I am all for the death penalty. Having worked in prisons, I know that some people are just too damned dangerous to be allowed to live. In the case of this jerk, however, I'm satisfied to have him moulder in prison for the rest of his miserable life. And may his life be miserable too.

Prediction -- unless isolated from the general population, he will be killed in prison.

Gee, ya think? :D

Let's put him in with Sirhan Sirhan (sp?) or Charlie Manson and see who comes out on top. :D

Wouldn't it be sad if some big "sissy," that's been pumping iron for the past 20 years, "punked" this guy right off the bat, made him his "boy." Prison talk guys, four years as prison psychologist in North Florida. Great education.

Of course there's always the chance of a prison riot, prisoners taking charge of the prison. Saw photos of the aftermath of one riot. Inmates didn't like one guy, got hold of a cutting torch, cut through the bars of his cell door, then applied the torch to his head until it kind of exploded. Would be too bad if that happened to Moussoui (sp.?)

Dunno where it was, nasty though. Prisons are great places to work, always something fun going on.

Nope, just some bald headed guy covered with tatoos, about 6'5", 350 lbs of muscle, not an ounce of fat. Imagine that basso profundo voice rumbling slowly, ominously, out of an chest that could easily belong to a grizzly bear, "come here boy." They call them "sissies," and they punk guys like moussoui, relatively young, kind of cute (if you're doing a century plus 10 you're damn right he looks young and cute).:D:D:D

One less martyr.


After sentencing today, Moussaoui is likely to be sent to America's super-maximum prison in Florence, Colorado * nicknamed "Alcatraz in the Rockies" * where inmates are subjected to non-stop solitary confinement with no group recreation.

Only five members of the jury felt Moussaoui should be spared execution but their stance made it impossible for jurors to reach the required unanimity.

Jurors did, however, reject a defence argument that killing Moussaoui would confer martyrdom on him. By contrast, jury members showed consideration for other mitigating factors including the difficulties of his childhood and the violence displayed by his father.

I wonder about the verdict. I am not in favour of the death penalty for any offense, but if that is the maximum sentence allowed for, why did this man get spared? Was the evidence sufficient to warrant the lesser sentence? If the jury let political issues such as martyring him influence their decision, then justice was not done. I didn't follow the case closely enough to know whether my question has already been answered by the evidence. I just hope that justice was done, in a period where justice seems quite fleeting.

That said, the maximum sentence I would be comfortable with is life in prison.

Must have been posting at the same time as John. Life for him is good as long as it is not easy or overly long.

Oh, life in a supermax will not be pleasant... after five years or so it will really sink in that he'll be there for a very very very long time.

Did I hear right? France is gonna ask to have the idiot serve his sentence in France?

George Jung

On what grounds? 'More humane'?

Phillip Allen

I guess France has such a guilty conscience from all those people they murdered in the first of the 19th century that they still are trying to convince themselves they aren’t really that bad. (too bad they drained the gene pool between the boards of the scaffold)

Well this is a little amusing in a lawyer bashing sort of way:


Sirhan has been routinely eligible for parole, but as of 2006 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/As_of_2006) parole had been denied 13 consecutive times. Currently he is confined at the California State Prison in Corcoran (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_State_Prison%2C_Corcoran). Sirhan's attorney Lawrence Teeter died on July 31 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_31), 2005 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005) in Mexico (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexico). Sirhan was again refused parole on March 15 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_15), 2006 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006). He did not attend the hearing nor did he appoint a new attorney to represent him. His possible next chance for parole will be in 2011 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011)
