Letter: Rational choices for terror

In the aftermath of the deaths and injuries by the terrorist in New York City, President Trump immediately expressed his anger and outrage by calling for the death penalty.

 

We hear the opinion that, by saying that, he may have tainted the defense in a trial.

We find it difficult to comprehend; what kind of defense could be affected?

The most rational appeal for a defense attorney would be for a swift and merciful execution.

There is no doubt of guilt; premeditated homicide has been documented, carried out in the name of a belief which rivals any criminal government, primitive beastly tribe, or group. The cry of “Allahu Akbar” following the crime is a blasphemy to all Muslims.

To identify and prevent these acts by law enforcement has proven virtually impossible. That answer lies within the Muslim people. Doing so will be extremely dangerous and must be carried out through CFI’s (confidential informants).

To refuse or decline to do so could ultimately leave nations of alternative religious belief with no choice but to ban Muslims.
