From what I heard he is going to be in solitary for the rest of his life. For an attention-whore like him, no contact with people will be like a slow hell. If he was simply shot, he would become a martyr. Locking him away and effectively making him disappear neutralizes him and the effect he would have. He becomes a non-entity.
I see your point, but it costs too much $$$$.
Since we are keeping him alive…Televised torture every time there is a terror attack might be good too?
Damn I’m barbaric…bring back the gallows!
You know what can be done about the cost? Give it about 6 months to a year, when everyone has forgotten about him, then have him meet with an “accident”. Happens all the time in prison. Pay off some murderous triple-life sentence psycho in the prison with cigarrettes to off him. Cost gone.[/quote]
Too bad he doesn’t get sent to Attica via Rikers Island. I’m sure, solitary or not ,he wouldn’t last long in a NY prison.
