A Collision Of Thoughts

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Jurors in the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui completed their sixth day of deliberations Tuesday without deciding whether the Sept. 11 conspirator should be executed or sentenced to life in prison. Even if you are pro-death penalty, I think this is a hard choice. The guy is a nut and, due to his many outbursts in the courtroom and outrageous testimony, he clearly wants to get the death penalty in order to be a martyr. I'd sentence him to life because it's exactly what he doesn't want. (Not to mention the fact that his execution would certainly fire up the radical Islamic faction).
