U.S. Seeks Life Sentence for Times Square Bomber
The Government is seeking a life sentence against failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad.
“The premeditated attempt to kill and maim scores of unsuspecting innocent men, women and children with a homemade bomb can only be described as utterly reprehensible,” the prosecutors said.
The Government also says Shahzad was financed by the Pakistani Taliban and planned another bomb two weeks later.
So no credit for his waiving his Miranda rights and talking to the feds.
[T]he government also revealed that during Mr. Shahzad’s cooperation with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and police detectives after his arrest, he “never expressed any remorse for his conduct.” They said he spoke with pride about what he and his co-conspirators had done, much as he did in court when he pleaded guilty.
Shahzad will be sentenced October 5.
