Talking Tuesday

Life in Prison, without parole....

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A man who killed one Arkansas Soldier and wounded another - an act he called retribution for the deaths of Muslims abroad - took an unexpected plea deal Monday that abruptly ended his murder trial and spared him the death penalty.

Abdulhakim Muhammad had repeatedly proclaimed that he drove up to a Little Rock, Ark., recruiting station, drew an assault rifle and fired on the two Soldiers. On Monday, Muhammad stood before Pulaski County Judge Herbert Wright and once more admitted to committing the crime.

Wright then sentenced Muhammad to life in prison without parole for capital murder, with 11 more life sentences on the remaining charges and an additional 180 years in prison.

as long as sometime in the future some asshat governor does not commute the sentences,it's fair he will die in prison.

In the end, a higher Judge will decide if this was just or not. I think Judge Wright did his job, and will count on God to make the final judgement. As Mike mentioned, we can only hope that a future governor will not commute his sentence.
Prayers for these soldiers families that they can find peace in all of this.

I think he should have been give three months in the electric chair with a slow charge that gradually got stronger by the day.
