Skip to comments.Life in Prison for Would-Be Times Square Bomber
Posted on 10/05/2010 12:29:15 PM PDT by traumer
Faisal Shahzad, who pleaded guilty to trying to blow up a sport utility vehicle carrying a homemade bomb in May in Times Square, thick with Saturday visitors, was sentenced on Tuesday morning to spend the rest of his life in prison. Remaining defiant, and smirking as the sentence was read, he told the court: Brace yourselves, because the war with Muslims has just begun.
He later continued: The defeat of the U.S. is imminent and will happen in the near future.
Mr. Shahzad, 30, was sentenced by Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum in Federal District Court in Manhattan. As those filling the courtroom listened, she told Mr. Shahzad, You are a young man, and you will have a lot of time to reflect about what you have said today, and what you have done.
The outcome of the hearing was a foregone conclusion, since Mr. Shahzads no-deals guilty plea June 21, in which he spoke at length about his training with the Pakistani Taliban and his desire that day to plead guilty 100 times over.
Mr. Shahzads vehicle, loaded with explosives as ill equipped to detonate as they were powerful, was found in Times Square on May 1, and he was arrested two days later aboard an airplane about to leave for Dubai. He immediately began cooperating with the authorities. Investigators later exploded a similar vehicle with an operational bomb inside, and estimated that the blast could have killed dozens.

Now we taxpayers have to support this maggot until he dies.
A 5.56mm round between the running lights would have been a lot cheaper and I would volunteer to deliver it, myself.
He will have a lifetime of converting American criminals and putting them on our streets. Sweet.
He will have a lifetime to teach others in prison all he knows.
0 told us we weren’t at war with Islam...what gives?
After we “absorb” another attack, Imam Hussein 0bama will give it some thought.
Housing suggestions: Ft. Leavenworth or the Aryan Nation wing of Attica
He’s not a “would be” bomber, save that moniker for the jihadists who thought they were detonating a bomb but really handed a dummy remote by FBI agents.
This is a bomb plot but he was still had deadly intent. He was THWARTED after it had been planted.
Bill Ayres' multiple bombs did work and he got a professorship at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
I's a strange world we live in.
He won’t come into contact with his fellow inmates:
The clean version of Hell.
WOW! Post of the year!
So we have to support this scumbag for the rest of his life, listen to his ramblings and subject people to the threat of some other kook retaliating. Just take him outside and shoot him, send him on his way to his 72 virgins.
I request a pork-heavy menu for this scumbag.
We're supposed to forget about Ayers bombings because they occurred back when he was young and stupid.
And the people who tell us that are the same people who tell us Christine O'Donnell is unfit for congress because she "dabbled in witchcraft" back when she was young and stupid.
It is a strange world indeed.
I think “Bubba” sees a bullseye on Mr. Shitsnots rear end.
They should issue him a ham hat and throw him out in the exercise yard with a pack of wild dogs. Then the smirk would be wiped off his face. Pork sandwiches are too good for his rations; give him spam three meals a day.
When posted, This pic needs a title. “President of the USA”.
It is so disrespectful without his title.
And I would happily buy you a box of ammo, so you could chose the delivery method of your choice. Personally, I think a cheap FMJ would suffice.
Perfect place for sex offenders.
Maybe if Faisal Shahzad’s father had been the president of Commonwealth Edison, things would have turned out for him a little more like they turned out for Bill Ayres.
You can be my spotter!
Here is a logic puzzle for you:
Moderate Muslims don’t lie.
Radical Muslims lie all the time.
A Muslim tells you he is moderate.
Is he lying?
We are not at war with them, but they are at war with us. That must be changed.
Would love to see your comment on the evening news
Thanks Mav. I thought so too.
.22 in the gut...let him suffer a bit.
So would I. But the legacy media seldom mentions Bill Ayers so it’s not likely to happen.
Like all prisoners of war during war time, he should be sent to a POW prison camp - GITMO - for the duration of the war; and if the terrorists insist on that being “for eternity”, so be it, that’s not our fault.
Just think of the cost of keeping this evil terrorist.
I hope when he sits on his prison toilet he faces Mecca.
Sorry but he is not nor should he be accorded the protections given to a POW. This scumbag is a common criminal, tried and convicted as such and should do hard time in a Federal prison, not live it up at GITMO.
No..that’s what he wants...Life in prison at Florence, Colorado is worse...It’s like being buried alive...You die every day there...It may take decades...And as an added bonus, you go insane.
The slow death he’ll get is worth the cost:
I was surprised to see H. Rap Brown is there.
I haven’t thought of him in years.
He’s a reminder of the bad old days.
Only the best for our boy!
“Most cells’ furniture is made almost entirely out of poured concrete, including the desk, stool, and bed. Each chamber contains a toilet that shuts off if plugged, a shower that runs on a timer to prevent flooding, and a sink missing a potentially dangerous trap. Rooms may also be fitted with polished steel mirrors bolted to the wall, an electric light, a radio, and a television that shows recreational, educational and religious programming. These are considered privileges that may be taken away as punishment, so they are placed and remotely controlled such that the inmate does not actually come into contact with them. The 4 in (10 cm) by 4 ft (1.2 m) windows are designed to prevent the prisoner from knowing his specific location within the complex because he can see only the sky and roof through them. Additionally, inmates exercise in what has been described as an “empty swimming pool,” so they do not know their location for possible escape. Telecommunication with the outside world is forbidden, and food is hand-delivered by correctional officers. The prison as a whole contains a multitude of motion detectors and cameras, 1,400 remote-controlled steel doors, and 12 ft (3.66 m) high razor wire fences. Laser beams, pressure pads, and attack dogs guard the area between the prison walls and razor wire.
Eric Rudolph, the Olympic Park bomber, lamented in a series of 2006 letters to a Colorado Springs newspaper that the ADX is meant to “inflict misery and pain.” Charles Harrelson, who was sent to ADX after a failed attempt to escape from a Georgia prison, said “Part of the plan here is sensory deprivation,” and “It could be infinitely worse.” A former ADX warden described the place as “a cleaner version of Hell.” There have been hundreds of “involuntary feedings” and four suicides. Most recently, in June 2009 Richard Reid, commonly known as the “shoe bomber”, went on a hunger strike and was force-fed.”
What do you want to bet he’s crazy as a bug in rug by now?
“Sorry but he is not nor should he be accorded the protections given to a POW. This scumbag is a common criminal”
There is nothing “common” about it. Making war in the manner of an enemy combatant is not a “common crime” that fits the purposes of civil courts. It is civil courts, and their protections of the accused that are “too good for him. He should have been turned over to a military tribunal and sentence imposed there.
May 4, 2010, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg:
Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.
Yeah, Mikey, he was just a disgruntled citizen who didn't like the health care bill or something. Speaking of "citizen", how do you feel about his comments today at his sentencing? "I did swear, but I did not mean it."
I'm just wondering if Bloomberg was enlightened in any way by that statement. Nah, he'll still continue to pave the way for the Ground Zero mosque. Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife Daisy Kahn claim to "love this country". Still believe that, Moronic Mayor?
Moderate Muslims dont lie.
Radical Muslims lie all the time.
A Muslim tells you he is moderate.
Is he lying?
Perfect! I'm using that one on some skeptics I know.
I certainly hope so.
