Can you believe that verdict? When I saw it on the news, I was nearly speechless. I was hoping they were gonna hang the smug SOB. Apparently, though, the government is going to pursue the 9 counts that the jury was deadlocked over and, if he's convicted, he can be given a life sentence. But, after today's verdict, I wouldn't be too optimistic.
It's definitely the opposite of justice, even if it's exemplary of our justice system at work. He got his day in court, and unfortunately way too many of us (including federal prosecutors) don't yet understand the first thing about jihad.Sadly, it's also a slap in the face of Israelis who have suffered and/or lost loved ones to the cowardly attacks of these holy warrior fiends.In the coming years the justice will either change or will be augmented with a separate system to deal solely with terror. Civil libertarians and the Wahabbi lobby will fight it tooth and nail, but a mushroom cloud over a dense American population center will change all that.
I don't how the jury after viewing some of the tapes of him exhorting people to support murderers either financially or by being an active participant could find him not guilty on anything.
I have long ago given up on the USA justice system being anything more than a game where the best player wins.
sjxacsxo"too many of us (including federal prosecutors) don't yet understand the first thing about jihad."I wished the prosecutor would've spent just a little more time on the case preparation.Then again OJ walked a free man as well.Sad day, when terrorists walks out a free man from the courtroom with a smug smile on his face.
It is sad that justice was not served. However, we still need to keep the faith that law enforcement will continue to be vigilant in finding these terrorist on our soil.
Rory, I'm still in shock. I hope the govt nails him next time. Perhaps we have to make sure the jury isn't bought or intimidated cause in my mind, that's the only way this could have happened.patrick--dead on right about it being a slap in the face to the Israelis. Seawitch, boggles the mind, doesn't it?RA, sadly it sure seems that way sometimes.Felis, I'm not sure what more the prosecutor could have done! It seemed like a slam dunk. Something fishy happened. Btw, the guy's wife was pretty freakin' smug too, all relieved that the "truth" came out. CC, thanks for stopping by and commenting. I'm going to try to keep the faith but what good is it if the courts continue to let these people loose?
There is no American "justice" system and there hasn't been for a long time. It's been replaced by the American "legal" system.OJ being aquited is a perfect example. justice was served because the evidence did not prove the case. Yet in civil court he's found to be responsible for their deaths. I.E. - he didn't do it but it's still his fault.There is no justice in America.-RoadKnight(I forgot my blogger login)
