Big Foot Goes to the Big House
In the NY Post - Patriot Judge Stands Tall vs. 'Arch' Enemy
A Furious federal judge hit shoe bomber Richard Reid with a life sentence yesterday - and spoke for the entire country when he proudly warned the terrorist wannabe, "We are not afraid . . . We are Americans."

During the dramatic court hearing in Boston, Judge William Young pointed to the flag behind him and said:

"You see that flag, Mr. Reid? That’s the flag of the United States of America.

"That flag will fly there long after this is long forgotten."

Reid cried out, "The American flag will come down and so will your country. You will be judged by Allah!" and made a menacing gesture toward Young. The judge ordered federal marshals to "stand him down," before he was dragged out in handcuffs.

After Reid made veiled threats and accused the United States of the "torture" of Muslims around the world, the patriotic and fearless judge let loose on the psychopathic would-be killer, who tried to blow up a jumbo jet in mid-flight.
Should have iced the punk and saved the long suffering taxpayers his upkeep.

The Post also had an editorial on the same subject:
"You are not an enemy combatant -- you are a terrorist," said Young. "You are not a soldier in any way -- you are a terrorist. To call you a soldier gives you far too much stature. You are a terrorist, and we do not negotiate with terrorists. We hunt them down one by one and bring them to justice.
He could just as easily have let Reid rave, then dryly passed sentence.

But the judge understood that the times called for something more important.

God bless Judge Young.

And God bless America.
Amen, brother.
