Zacarias Moussaoui's Sentence

A friend of mine had this to write, following the life sentence which was handed down to Zacarias Moussaoui yesterday afternoon.

What is this crap?
He was the ONLY one tried for the 9/11 bombings, and they gave him life in prison, whereby we (taxpayers) have to pay for him to stay alive in prison (he is only a young guy...age 37, like Dennis in Monty Python's Holy Grail), which by the way is absurd because he's not even a US citizen, he is a frenchman of Moroccan descent. Additionally, after they gave him life in prison instead of the death penalty, he pulled some bullshit:
"America, you lost. I won," he said Wednesday, clapping his hands as he was led out of the courtroom.
Now they are going to give him the opportunity to speak again publicly before he goes to jail: Zacarias Moussaoui will get one last chance to speak publicly Thursday before he is sent to a super-maximum security prison with little to no contact with the outside world for his role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Why will he get to speak publicly? They were worried about him being a martyr if he were killed, who knows what sort of Muslim rage he will incite when he is allowed to speak.
I hope the jurors felt like shit when he taunted them after his sentencing.
Then his mother blamed France and his race for his sentencing...he's lucky he's not on death row lady: Zacarias Moussaoui's mother on Thursday blamed France for not fighting harder for her son's case, and said his race and his color were partly to blame for the U.S. jury's decision to sentence him to life in prison over the Sept. 11 attacks.
I blame Virginia...the trial should have been held in Texas.

All very, very good points except it is actually more expensive to imprison a person for life then it is to execute them believe it or not.

Ok, chill out. It isn't the liberal conspiracy at work. If I were you, I would have faith that our boys on the inside will make sure he gets what is coming to him. Just put him in general population and give him two or three nice cell mates and they will take care of everything for him. If you ask me, the death penalty is a painless copout; whereas, I know the people in prison can get real creative on him.

I would have to agree, let the crazy ass Texans deal with him. Or just release him into central park, raffle off a thousand tickets nation wide, give those thousand people wiffle ball bats and let them go to town on his ass for hours. Just my opinion.
