Ah, deterrence!

This ought to strike fear into the hearts of the agents of chaos.

You betcha'!! Just like the threat of incarceration in an American prison with its controled climate, total medical care, 3 squares a day, fully stocked library, television and VCRs, full and free legal representation, good exercise equipment, a yard with a view, conjugal visits, a mosque and Lefties that will watch-dog the warden deters those nasty jihadis that want to slit the throats of our children and saw off our heads with a dull knife. You can almost feel them trembling on the Paki frontier and in the alleys of Cairo!

What deterrence? He got a measly 21 months probation and after 3 years (if there are no other offenses) it will be expunged from his record! To boot, he got a computer-programming job because of it.

Of course the punishment may have been harsher had he been an adult, but still...

I may have missed the sarcasim in this post.

Mr. I: Do I need a bigger sledgehammer?

leeontheroad said...

You have a big sledgehammer, Prof.? Now that's a deterrent.

Mr. I said...

Ann: Maybe. But won't that be dangerous?

We need new laws. Computer viruses should be similar to Arson.

We should try to issue a warrant for this individual in the United States so that at the very least he can never travel here.

Sloanasaurus, he can do plenty of damage from afar, as he's already proven.

I hope they make him sit in the comfy chair until lunch, with only a cup of coffee at eleven.

when was the last time you were in prison Goesh? I hope you comments speak from experience. I would hate for all of your remarks to be based on whatever Powerline post you just read. Surely you do know that of which you speak.
The last time I was in prison it was not quite as nice as you are describing, and it was supposed to be one of the best in California, where you have to be a model prisoner to get transferred to.

Kathleen - what was missing from the prison you were in?

these: controled climate, fully stocked library, television and VCRs, full and free legal representation, a yard with a view, conjugal visits, a mosque and Lefties (unless you count me, which you shouldn't because I had no authority or power).
