American Collaborator In Mumbai Massacre Sentenced To 35 Years

From FNC:

An American was sentenced on Thursday to 35 years in prison for the key role he played in a 2008 terrorist attack on Mumbai that has been called India's 9/11.

David Coleman Headley, 52, whose meticulous scouting missions facilitated the assault by 10 gunmen from a Pakistani-based militant group, which killed 160 people -- including children. [...]

Before Leinenweber imposed the sentence, a victim shot in the attack gave emotional testimony during the hearing Thursday morning. Linda Ragsdale, a Tennessee children's author, spoke through tears describing how she lost friends in the attacks and her own injuries. She said she was haunted by the sounds of people suffering and her recovery from the wounds continues.

"I know what a bullet can do to every part of the human body," she said. "I know the sound of life leaving a 13-year-old child. These are things I never needed to know, never needed to experience."

35 years. That comes out to less than 3 months per life, if my math is correct.

1 Hopefully he will get to experience a good old fashionedass whooping everyday that he is in prison... Too bad they didn't hang the SOB like they did his buddy.

2 Well, I hope they don't have early parole, and I hope he gets pounded up the ass by some guy who is freakishly endowed until he expires.

8 grego: Yes.

He needs to be thrown out of an aircraft high over Pakistan ... as well as any other Paki terrorists we find.
