yeah, we let a lot of "first time" offenders off and they usually go back to hurt again...

file this under "idiotic one-size-fits-all solution." Hope it ends here. Tragedy if it doesn't.

Their excuses were B.S....

They were too old to attend high school and too young to have children attending the school. There was no reason for them to 'visit' the school.

Good. Let them out.

Then, keep them under constant surveillance. This may lead somewhere.

Testing the waters for a Beslan massacre?

Did the judge ever hear of Beslan? I hope the parents in this school district raise a righteous furor over this wrist-slap.

There may have been no LEGITIMATE reason for them to visit the school but if one is going to lay seige, it is best to scout the territory first.

Parents should pull their kids from school in protest of the policy that permits adults to ride along with their kids.

Parents would go bonkers if these guys were suspected child-molesters. The fact that they're simply terrorists I guess makes them just fine.

At the time, the men gave conflicting reasons why they boarded the bus...

That's a little ominous, ya think?

...and were kept in jail for the weekend, police said.

That'll teach 'em!

If they take to suicide bombing the bus (as is done in Israel and elsewhere), they won't have to worry about giving "any" reason for boarding the bus.

They dont go bonkers when they are state certified child-molesters aka diversity teachers.

Anyway high school kids are too old for followers of muuuhhamhead (Pigs be inseminating him), they prefer 9 yr olds!

"Please excuse Akmed and Mahmood for getting on the school bus this morning. They were unaware that big yellow busses full of children are not for terrorists to ride on, nor were they conducting any sort of surveillance or probing mission looking for weak targets to attack the infidel where he least expects it.

Thank you very much,

Sincerely,

Mahktaleeka Ali Husseini Rahkman"

Sadly when it comes to Judicial 'wisdom' these days; truth is far more challenging than fiction.

I am assuming this Judge is a Democrat; a Liberal. These are the people who need an intervention program. . .

Cure this disease before it kills us all.

Here's a scenario. Now they know how easy it is to get on the bus. On the firist day of school, young Muslim men, who can pass for high schoolers, get on school busses. No one will know for sure they don't belong.

They can either blow themselves up on the busses or walk into the school with the real students and do a Beslen. I hope my tinfoil is too tight, but they do like to attack innocents and children, and it would get the public's attention.

They wouldn't capture a school by riding school buses. But they could coordinate hostage scenarios in a town or across the country on buses.

Or do a Madrid or London series of coordinated bombings.

Any of a number of ways they could play it.

There were a number of dry runs before the 9-11 hijacking.

Anytime we laugh at ourselves for blowing up a lunch sack outside an office building, we'll never know for certain if they were just testing reaction time or maybe crying wolf to wear us out.

That's exactly what they are doing. These two should be in Gitmo.
