"You will die with a wimper..."

I was all for putting an end to this guys life, but really saw this sentencing phase as a win/win situation. Killing him would save the taxpayers of our country from having to feed his worthless face. On the other hand, he wants to die a martyr and subbing that for this would serve justice as well:

Once in prison, Moussaoui will be in lockdown for 23 hours of every day, with one hour of recreation daily. He'll also spend that one hour alone.

CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Moussaoui most likely will be locked up inside the federal Supermax prison facility in Florence, Colorado, which is sometimes known as the "Alcatraz in the Rockies.”

"It is a place of extraordinary security, 23 hours a day in cells, one hour of recreation," Toobin said. "It is as close to permanent solitary confinement as exists in our prison system."

There's no doubt that this guy has thoroughly enjoyed the spectacle of his trial, but I think now that it's over, the above outlined incarceration will be worse punishment than setting him on fire.

Good riddance and let’s not ever mention the guys name again.

An 8' x 5' cell, for the rest of his life.

Sounds like Smoke and Mirrors.

Yeah, but what they didn't tell you is that Albini is an al-Qaeda sympathizer, so Moussaoui gets all the tape he wants.

Actually, it seems that execution costs more than life in prison.

A friend of mine was in federal prison and a while back when I mentioned someone else who had gotten life instead of execution and I said I wondered if he should have been executed, he said this:

"physical pain is nothing compared to the mental torture that lack of freedom, lack of hope and the knowledge of the upcoming execution would have done to that dude".

He's safer in solitary. Part of me wishes he'd have to interact with the gen pop. Then he'd have to live every second of the rest of his miserable existence in fear for his life.

Although it may be cheaper, it still irritates me to no end to think this guy is going to get 3 hots and a cot for the rest of his days, courtesy of the American taxpayer.

The problem is that there's really no way that "justice" can be done. No matter what happened or does happen to this guy, nothing can make up for 9/11.

All of this shit has cost the taxpayers a ton of money, and there's nothing we can do about it. From dealing with the actual attacks to security to new government agencies to investigations to trials to wars... the list goes on and on.

I love the phrase "3 hots and a cot"! Unfortunately, he's getting a hard concrete slab, but "3 hots and a slab" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

It would only be a fitting sentence to have him serve it at S&M if Ted were to take off his shoes.

A fate worse than death!

I couldn't agree more! He'd much prefer dying in the name of Allah!This fella needs to sit and rot in prison. I think he'd much prefer dying in the name of Allah! I hope some prison bully gets a hold of him and gives him the hot beef injection! I know it's highly unlikely he'll see another human being other than a guard, but stranger things have happened. Oh, and sometimes these prison guards aren't right themselves...
