Extremist Update

While Tiller's killer gets the press, Pvt. Long's killer begs for attention and instead gets a gag order:
Judge Alice Lightle issued the order Monday after prosecutors requested it to block court officials and police from discussing the case.
Would that be pronounced "light ly"? But this is interesting, the first extremist to produce a man-caused disaster in the new era of Obama basically considers himself an enemy combatant no matter what his lawyer says:
"I do feel I'm not guilty," Abdulhakim Muhammad told The Associated Press in a collect call from the Pulaski County jail. "I don't think it was murder, because murder is when a person kills another person without justified reason."
The question then becomes, just who are they trying to gag--the police/media or the suspect? His act alone could be seen as contradicting the new conventional wisdom that Bush was the inspiration of Islamic terrorism, and that if we only admit our mistakes and play nice peace will break out.

I had not heard the shooter's comments. Very interesting, could convict himself if his attorney doesn't shut him up.

Like the terrorists in GitMo, they WANT to confess their guilt and they WANT the death penalty, but we won't give them that because they might be seen as martyrs. I say SO WHAT, give them what they want.

Well, Obama would evidently agree--he's suggesting they be allowed to plead guilty and get death without a significant trial. At least that was last week's trial balloon.

The guy brought to face trial in New York doesn't fit the pattern, but I'm thinking there's a political reason for that one.
