in for life

I picked up the link for this story over on the Lockergnome Forums where I am becoming quite a regular these days. It’s a short synopsis of the sentencing of Richard C. Reid, the idiot who tried to board a plane with a bomb in his shoe. The full text of the judge’s sentencing statement can be found in a PDF file from the NACIC website here.

So apparently this guy was sentenced over a year ago and I swear I don’t recall ever hearing anything about it. Maybe I’m just forgetful, but then again if the media would’ve been all over it like they should have been, it would be a memorable sentencing. I’m thankful that we still have judges like U.S. District Court Judge William Young sitting on the bench.
