Corporal punishment first, followed by death by hanging or a firing squad.
That sounds about right. So, how do we legalize corporal punishment?
I’m assuming Sayfullo is guilty. But what if he’s not.
Jim Stone Freelance offers reasoning that the Home Depot truck that Sayfullo drove was taken over by remote control. That would make the Muslim a patsy.
He further argues that the Deep State got what it wanted, extreme vetting, a police state tactic. Jim makes several other arguments that suggest that events in New York City did not unfold as stated.
Donald Trump has called for the death penalty for an Uzbek immigrant accused of driving a truck down a New York City bike path, killing eight people.
Sayfullo Saipov, 29, who was hospitalised after he was shot by a police officer and arrested, told investigators he had been inspired by watching Islamic State videos and began planning Tuesday’s attack a year ago, according to a criminal complaint filed against him on Wednesday.
“NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room. He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!” Trump tweeted on Wednesday night.
Saipov was charged with one count of providing material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organisation, specifically Isis, and one count of violence and destruction of motor vehicles causing the deaths of eight people.
Manhattan acting US Attorney Joon Kim said the first count carried a maximum penalty of life in prison, while the second would make Saipov eligible for capital punishment if convicted, if the government chose to seek the death penalty. Additional or different charges could be brought later in an indictment, Kim said.
Vehicle assaults similar to the New York attack took place in Spain in August and in France and Germany last year, claiming dozens of lives. Saipov told authorities he made a trial run with a rental truck on 22 October to practise turning the vehicle and “stated that he felt good about what he had done” after the attack, the complaint alleged.
The 10-page charging document said Saipov waived his rights to remain silent and avoid self-incrimination in agreeing to speak to investigators without an attorney present from his bed at Bellevue hospital center in Manhattan.
The complaint said Saipov had requested permission to display the Islamic State flag in his hospital room.
It said he was particularly motivated by seeing a video in which Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – who led the campaign by Isis to seize territory for a self-proclaimed caliphate within Iraq and Syria – exhorted Muslims in the US and elsewhere to support the group’s cause.
Investigators found thousands of Isis-related propaganda images and videos on a cellphone belonging to Saipov, including video clips showing Isis prisoners being beheaded, run over by a tank and shot in the face, the complaint said.
The FBI said it had located another Uzbek man, Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, wanted for questioning as a person of interest in the attack.
US law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing, said Saipov had been in contact with Kadirov and another person of interest in the investigation, though they did not elaborate.
Tuesday’s assault was the deadliest in New York City since 11 September 2001, when suicide hijackers crashed two jetliners into the World Trade Center, killing more than 2,600 people.
Trump’s reaction to the NYC murders are the opposite of what Barack Obama’s would be:
What Trump has not said is that the FBI “interviewed” Sayfullo in 2015. Did the FBI deliberately incite him to join ISIS? Corrupt James Comey was FBI Director at the time. His handling of the criminal activities by Hillary Clinton suggest that he’s a Deep State actor ready to participate in psy ops that further the interests of the “men behind the curtain.”
