We Muslims don't abide by human-made laws, because they are always corrupt. And I had a firsthand experience when on the second day of my arrest I asked for the Miranda. And the FBI denied it to me for two weeks, effecting harm to my kids and family, and I was forced to sign those Mirandas.
Faisal Shahzad, who unsuccessfully attempted to set off a bomb in Times Square, was sentenced to six life terms today in federal court.

The Government is seeking a life sentence against failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad.

The Government also says Shahzad was financed by the Pakistani Taliban and planned another bomb two weeks later.

Shahzad will be sentenced October 5.
