    I'm very surprised that he was not sentenced to death.

    That would be a backward not forward step

    I doubt that that's the explanation for the verdict. I imagine the prosecutors rejected jurors with a political predisposition against imposing the death penalty.

    That he was spared is evidence that Allah exists and all other religions are false. It's like the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego being spared from the fiery furnace, except that this one actually happened.

    Allah akbar!!!

    I hope they stick that bastard in an underground cell and tell him that east is west, so when he prays, he'll be giving old Allah the moon.

    I think he was spared because it was shown that he didn't have much to do with 9/11 at all. If that is the case, you should be relatively proud of your criminal justice system.

    If that were the case, he shouldn't have been convicted in the first place.

    The very fact that they held a deliberation on whether to administer capital punishment indicates that he was already found beyond any reasonable doubt to be responsible for a capital crime.

    I think they did not want to give him the death penalty because they did not want him becoming a martyr. Looking back you can see how effective this tactic was getting rid of all us crazy Christians. 🙄

    I believe that would violate the jury's duty. I don't think their instructions permit them to establish their own criteria - such as avoiding martyrdom - for giving or witholding a death sentence.

    That's why I said "relatively proud".

    I wasn't at either of the proceedings, I'm just referring to a journalist who was present who said "There didn't seem to be any evidence that he had much involvement in 9/11 at all"

    I think there are two reasons he did not get the death penalty. He wanted it. Secondly, I think the jury was sending a message to the prosecution for their behaviors that the judge railed against.

    He will have 23 hours a day in solitary confinement. It may be so solitary he will not even know what direction in which to pray.
