Sand turd Ahmad Rahimi thinks he deserves mercy.
He showed no mercy to the 31 people injured by the three bombs he detonated last fall. Others that he scattered around the New York City area failed to explode.
When police tried to take their suspect into custody, Rahimi shot it out with them.
Now, he’s trying to score a legal win, a win he couldn’t score on the battlefield.
Ahmad Rahimi, the terrorist responsible for the New York City bombing in September of 2016, wants a reduced prison sentence for the pain and suffering he has faced.
The bomber’s attorney asked prosecutors to consider his “mental and physical health” as part of a plea agreement, arguing that his pain should be considered equally to the victims he injured and tried to kill.
Federal court documents show that the lawyers defending the terrorist argue that because police shot him 11 times, he has experienced “brain injuries, limited longevity, and/or post-traumatic stress disorder.”
As reported by the Daily Beast:
These first revelations about Rahimi’s plea negotiations come after prosecutors asked Judge Richard Berman to rule on Rahimi’s competency as the case proceeds towards trial. The judge denied the motion from prosecutors on Monday, after Rahimi’s lawyers derided that move as an inappropriate judicial involvement in plea negotiations.
Defense attorneys said in their filings they never suggested that they were headed toward a competency examination for Rahimi, and merely asked the government to consider those factors in private plea discussions. The prosecution’s motion “runs afoul of [a] prohibition on judicial involvement in plea discussions,” the defenders wrote.
The government filed the sealed motion on April 24 asking for Berman to intervene, days after defense attorneys clarified that they were not challenging Rahimi’s competency. Defense attorneys submitted emails showing the context of the exchange was about plea negotiations, and that they “don’t expect” to challenge his competency for trial at this time.
His lawyers attempted to have the case moved out of New York, citing that individuals in the city wouldn’t be able to give him a fair trial.
Judge Berman denied the motion on Monday, adding that New York’s Southern District would have no problem finding 18 individuals willing to sit on the jury to decide his fate.
If you check out the Wikipedia page on the bombings you’ll read about how the U.S. gave Rahimi and his family every advantage. And still this monster turned on us. He could be the poster boy for the assertion that ALL Muslims must be kept out of the U.S., and ALL already here must be deported.
