    Was wondering what you people thought about that . Should he have got the death penalty ?



    Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person convicted for involvement in the September 11 terrorist attacks, will be sentenced to life in prison on Thursday after a jury on Wednesday decided that he should not receive the death penalty.The decision to sentence Mr Moussaoui to life in prison without parole was a big blow to the Bush administration, which had argued his involvement in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon warranted the death penalty. "America, you lost…I won," Mr Moussaoui shouted, before clapping, while being led out of the Alexandria, Virginia, courtroom.

    Doesn't it have to be a unanimous verdict for death to be an option?

    Oh and no, no he shouldn't have been sentenced to death.

    I'm not sure Mr JP , we don't have capital punishment in Canada . I thought it was good as well let him languish in jail with out the virgins . But makes one wonder what the US government thought about it .

    As I understand it and I stand to be corrected, the death penalty was only an option if the jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict. As it transpired it was a majority, so life without hope of parole was the highest option. (That may even have been mandatory, I haven't looked into it.)

    I don't know if that's the case everywhere the death penalty is available, or if it is dependent on where the trial was held.

    I guess its a moot point if you were a family member watching the trial , when he Moussaoui gave the victory sign .

    Still think justice was served tho, let his mom visit him in prison for the rest of his life .

    I think don't think he deserved the death penalty.

    Apparently he knew something about the hijacking plan but didn't tell anyone. He was an "almost" hijacker that attended flight school. He didn't plan the attacks.

    His crime was what he knew and his intentions. He didn't actually do shit.

    That doesn't warrant death at all.

    Now, he claims he did not know anything about it whatsoever, and is crying for a new trial.

    As most people thought in the first place. He was a low-level player.

    Nice going. He gets life shooting his mouth off. I hope he rots in prison.
