the kid is guilty as hell, but justice must be served.

plus, he'll likely get the DP if he's convicted on federal charges, yes?

AFTER BEING INTERROGATED  BY THE CIA AND OTHER "INTERROGATION" EXPERTS.

Probably without legal counsel present.  And I'm sure they'll wait until he's off all medication, out of critical condition  and in reasonable health before they tortu...er, question him.

If it doesn't warrant a news flash then why did you news flash it?

He'll get the DP in prison too.

Have we forgiven them so soon?

True justice turns like a spit.

He should be tried as an American citizen.

Of course, his defense will blame it on his older brother in an effort to get a reduction.
 
2013-04-22 02:10:08 PM
He's a citizen?  I thought I read that he had a green card, and was a legal immigrant, but not a US citizen.

Or is that just CNN/NYPost being derpy again?

Yes.

If USCIS can find any fraud on his application they can revoke his citizenship.  Just sayin'.
 
2013-04-22 02:10:50 PM
He should be tried by Jack Bauer.

This. No matter how heinous the charges or how solid the evidence, his rights must not be violated. Anyone who suggests otherwise basically hates America.

THIS IS AN OUTR- actually, this is very logical
 
2013-04-22 02:11:18 PM
But what if he's a Sovereign Citizen, not subject to the Crown or some phoney-baloney Imperial Navy of the British Colonies laws? He should be free to not pay taxes and do as he pleases without Federal harassment, seems to me.

FlashHarry: plus, he'll likely get the DP if he's convicted on federal charges, yes?


He'll probably get that, TP, and "Spit-Roasted", repeatedly for years on end if he's in Federal prison.

Charged with using a Weapon of Mass Destruction?

Fusion bomb?  WMD
Home made bomb in a pressure cooker?  Doesn't really seem like a WMD to me.

Most of the news networks made errors during their coverage, especially in the early hours of the final manhunt.  It was sickening to watch major news sources pick up the Mike Mulugeta crap.  I hope he sues them all.

I'm good with that.  Lets give him 5-10 years in the electric chair.

I think any bomb is considered a WMD. Not to be confused with the WMDs that Saddam moved to Syria

I think the biggest problem with the WMD moniker is that it stands so strongly opposed to the law of conservation of mass.

It's more than Saddam had, and we went to war over it.

Let's hope this is handled at the state level rather than the federal level.
 
2013-04-22 02:12:44 PM
Good point, subby. As an Islamic terrorist, he should be declared an enemy combatant.

Does it matter? The military is not for things inside the us

Yeah. The idea of a "special terrorism interrogator" getting to him before he is officially questioned bothers me. You can't put due process on hold.

Oh, they're certainly upset. Question is, more or less upset than Fark Lefties who learned that these two jokers weren't bombing for Jeebus?

Because remember, there's nothing like sticking up for the principles the terrorists supposedly hate like abandoning them the millisecond your own personal safety is threatened.

Five?  Christ, if the guy "only" gets life in prison we'll be hearing about it for decades.

"It's too dangerous to keep him in prison.  What if Al Qaeda tries to spring him.  What if he escapes?!  WOOGA BOOGA!!"

there are so many people already convinced that his rights ARE being violated, simply because the wrong guy is in charge.

Shrugging Atlas

Quoting my post from yesterday's thread:

For purposes of federal criminal law, a "weapon of mass destruction" includes any "destructive device." 18 USC 2332a. A "destructive device" includes any bomb, grenade, rocket with more than four ounces of propellant, and any projectile launcher with a caliber over .50 inches (except for Attorney General approved shotguns). 18 USC 921. A potato gun is a weapon of mass destruction, if "designed for use as a weapon" and used against a U.S. national.

The Newsflash tag is entirely optional and is used to generate page hits due to it being tied to email alerts for those who get them.

See: Kim Kardashian Divorced for an example.

There is quite literally zero chance of that happening.
 
2013-04-22 02:14:14 PM
Why is this even an argument?
 
2013-04-22 02:14:18 PM
To piss him off he should be put on trial under Sharia law, on the 'eye for an eye' section.

FlashHarry: plus, he'll likely get the DP if he's convicted on federal charges, yes?


Yes, a conviction on using 'weapons of mass destruction' could result in the DP
We shall see.

Personally, I wish they'd just torched the boat, and had a few weapons malfunctions.
I would make a truly awful policeman.  But my beat would be quite
so quite

There we go. We need to try to limit WMCs.
