Gott, a student of Islam whose actions briefly evoked fears of terrorism eight months after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, will remain in state custody at the Feliciana Forensic Facility at Jackson. Doctors will evaluate him regularly, and should they ever declare him sane and no longer a danger to himself and others, the law allows a judge to release him. But that's not likely to happen, Assistant District Attorney Gevin Grisbaum said Thursday.

"He is irrestorably incompetent," Grisbaum said. "Will he ever get out? No."

I suppose the assistant district attorney has to say that to reassure the public. I am not so certain that a judge won't release him.

It had taken most of the past three years and considerable medication to restore him to a level of mental competence such that he could even stand trial, according to court records.

Hmmm. If medication brought him to a sufficient level of competence to stand trial and to participate in his defence, then it can some day be argued (by his attorneys) that in fact he has oversome his mental illness, and should be released.

Gott, a student of Islam

To save ink, they could just use:

_________, a student of Islam

Then, just fill in the blank as needed each time.

Using our own legal system to get out of a terrible crime. Put him in jail and throw away the key. What Muslim couldn't be judged insane by liberal courts?
