“I should not be here today,” said Linas, dressed in a dark suit, his friends and family dabbing tears from their eyes at the back of the courtroom. “I should be at school, studying.”

Linas followed up by adding "It's those evil greedy corporate bastards who should be going to jail, not me! And why isn't Whistle Ass's buddy Ken Lay going to jail, huh?! HUH?!" - then giving the judge the finger, dousing his attorney's leather shoes in red paint, pitching a molotov cocktail through the windshield of a nearby Ford Explorer, and vowing to cleanse the earth of as many pieces of human scum as he could possibly murder, starting with infants, because they don't fight back, and because they wear disposable diapers.

Kudos to the federal judge who actually had the clarity to figure this case out. The real tragedy is that "Linas" will be cooling his punk ass in a Club Fed, instead of rotting away inside from godforsaken State Pen.

I firmly believe that the current 'hate Bush, America, SUV, etc.' crowd will perpetrate a major attack in the near future. Society has told these punks that they are smarter than the rest of us and that destruction of life/property is acceptable to further their cause.

I understand what you were saying but these are the kind of guys that I wouldn't want any of my outfit to have to depend upon in any dangerous situation.

They might make good practice dummys though,if not targets. ;)

That would be one job where you wouldn't let your mind wander off what you're doing too many times.Thumbs up to your son,takes grit.

Thank goodness we hunt mines differently than the Iranians did when they were fighting Iraq.

IIRC,they'd sometimes marched a bunch of their own young boys across a minefield to "clear" it for their older,"more valuable" fighters to pass through afterwards.Sick. :(

Co-defendants ... are expected to receive similar federal prison terms ...

As my cousin, the draft dodger, once told me after being released from prison: "The one thing in life of which I am is absolutely certain is that you never, ever want to do time in a federal pen."

An epiphany!! Unfortunately, he arrived at it AFTER he made imbecilic and moronic decisions to vandalize other people's property. His liberal indoctrination at the hands of the government schools has helped this 19 year-old get 3 1/2 years behind bars.

He doesn't know it yet, but he's about to continue his education in a way that will (hopefully) actually TEACH him something.

Good thing the Prison Rape Bill was passed last year, so these three terrorists, who should have gotten 42yrs, will be safe from predators. Not. < /saracasm >

Ever hear of the term "useful idiot"?

To allow any of these criminals the honor of serving in our Military is unthinkable to me.

But, I'll bet there are some ex-criminals here on FR that were changed to be upstanding citizens by their tour in the military

As much as we want this fellow to 'learn his lesson', I'm also sure that ALL of us want him to finally be an asset to this Nation, and not a future liability....

I should be at school, studying.

What ever for? You already know how to destroy things. You already know how to cook burgers and french fries, which is pretty much the only job skill you'll ever need after getting caught and convicted for destroying things.

Each defendant has agreed to pay full restitution of $204,021.86

Let's see, at 6.00 dollars an hour, if they are lucky enough to get a job after 42 months "vacation" they should have this paid off in less than 17 years (if they don't eat, live inside a home, wear clothes, etc.). Why did the DA/Judge treat this as a lark? These are terrorist. period

All of this damage was within a mile of my house!!!!! I want these felons to do hard time. Reeeaaaaalllll hard time. It was shear luck that no one was hurt in any of these situations.

I think all the homeowners ought to file suit for trespassing and vandalism or whatever they can so these morons pay for this "little escapade" for the rest of their lives.

Mom and Dad probably took out a second on their home and paid off the $200K with nary a thought.

I am disgusted.
