An Ignominious Fate for a Wanna-Be Jihadi
So Zacarias Moussaoui, crazy, bloodthirsty, would be mass murderer will spend the rest of his forgetable, hate-filled life in solitary confinement - denied his vindication through martyrdom. Tell his 72 virgins to stand down, maybe when he dies of natural causes in a few decades a sloppy old whore will wait for him.
I do not believe in Capital Punishment a a rule, but I find it hard to be a purist. As with child killers and molesters, I could have winked and never cried if Moussaoui had been sentenced to Death. His sentence of Life Without Parole, however, condemns him to a fate far worse than the finality of death for his cause. He will linger, forgotten, when those that he wished to associate himself with have passed. Our system worked. The vengeance of Justice will not be swift for him but daily and lasting.
May he rot.
