Mousse Escapes the Noose--Updated
I am not a huge fan of the death penalty, but if there was ever a case
that cried out for it, it's this one.A federal jury decided today that Sept. 11, 2001, conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui should be sentenced to life in prison, rejecting government arguments that he should be executed for his role in the deadliest terrorist strike on American soil.
"America, you lost. I won!" Moussaoui yelled as he was escorted from the U.S. District courtroom in Alexandria after the verdict was read. He clapped his hands as he left.
Others have noted that he will not be in the general prison population, so he's unlikely to end up as somebody's girlfriend or get a shiv between the ribs. Of course, Father Geoghan
was probably not in the general population when he was killed, either.
Update: Rick Moran goes against the grain
