    I really hate this. He ought to be forced to live so far back in the tombs that they have to pump sunshine in and left there to rot for the rest of his natural life. Hope those 72 Virginians are waiting.

    Story

    "He is a criminal. He is a cold-blooded murderer," prosecutor Col. Mike Mulligan said today, according to the Associated Press. "This is not his gift to God. This is his debt to society. This is the cost of his murderous rampage."

    What I find disturbing is they're going to fly him from central Texas to Leavenworth.

    I think they ought to outfit a hand cart with arm controls, shackle him to the hand cart, and "escort" him while he pilots himself up to Kansas.

    Should he "expire" along the way due to heat exhaustion.....

    ....oh, well.

    With the premium health care he will get he will probably outlive us all waiting for all the appeals procedure to be over.

    I imagine his appeals will go quickly. This was an open and shut case, and since he has made no real effort to defend himself up to this point, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't appeal. Especially if he's looking to be martyred.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I believe, but stand ready for correction, that the appeals process is automatic.

    I'm with Eupher and think the kart should not exceed the walking speed of a sloth.

    Now when they kill him, will his Islamic associates consider him a martyr?

    Yes because he died furthering their cause. He killed many infidels in the process. He definitely will be martyred.

    He can appeal on two grounds: Incompetent counsel (he had no business representing himself) and the judge's refusal to allow his motive into the proceedings. He may not get the appeal, but if he files, he will want his defense, that he was a jihadi, engaged in armed resistance against infidels, made part of the record, so that his martyrdom is assured.
