Moussaoui Sentenced.

They’ve sentenced Moussaoui today, and he will die. He will die in Prison. Old. Alone. Forgotten.

Not a martyr, less relevant than last week’s American Idol loser.

Justice today is served.

    Jeez, I hope he’s not forgotten. I’d like to see him trotted out every year, maybe make something like those commercials you see old rockers who got caught with a joint at airport security. “Here’s Moussaoui. He was caught within a nation of laws and charged for his crimes. He got a chance to explain his actions and defend himself in a public courtroom – you can go read the transcripts yourself if you like. After being found guilty he was sent to prison to serve out his punishment, and he is still there today.”

    Way more useful than a corpse.

    Damn straight. Kudos to the justice system for not yielding to ancient and outdated impulses and refusing to murder this scumbag.

    Dying of old age inprison hardly seems like justice. Justice is symbolized by the scales – an *equal* response. While he can’t be executed 3000 times, or 2400 for our dead soldiers, yet his one death is as equal as we can extract. See my post:

    Glad to disagree, cordially, with you.
