He is so overdue for execution. The monies that he has earned while incarcerated should be distributed to all the victims. Let us all hope that he is found guilty and executed immediately. Terrorism has no place in our country and swift justice must be the end result.


I'm always reminded of the line from the Redford film Jeremiah Johnson, where a minister asks Johnson whether he "really" believes in the spirits that guard a Crow Indian burial ground blocking the path to some stranded white settlers. He replies, "It doesn't matter--_they_ do." We can assure ourselves all we want that the West is not at war with Islam, but how much does it matter if even a small number of fanatical jihadists believe Islam is at war with the West? Saying this case involves "workplace violence" is an Orwellian travesty of the first order.

even if it is wrong, we should be keeping track of muslims in our army. more than once murders have been done in the name of islam. i would protect my peacefull muslim americans to the death but when they cross the line of murder they are no better than any other mass murderer.

twisted mind - twisted ideology - twisted religion....these all go into the ugly mind of an Islamic killer. Radical Islam is like a disease of the mind ...an addiction... that causes the person to lose touch with reality and focus on one thing...KILLING. There is no remorse or conscious with these people ...just a hardened calloused consciousness filled with HATE. I see no difference between these radical killers and the Nazi SS of the 1930's and 40's. Same hate for people - same black heart. What kind of ideology preaches this stuff?

Not a problem. If he wants to die, fine with me.

We need to start using our guns and putting an end to terrorist before we waste billions of dollars of tax money paying lame attorneys who just waste our time.

what he wants is to be a martyr. Deny him that. When you execute him with lethal injection, make sure there is some swine derivative in the injection to deny him entrance into his "heaven". let it be known that is how islamic murderers will be treated, and there will be no more like him.

Too bad he wasn't sent on his way to his 'heaven' when he had a gun in his hand, sending others
on their way.
