COLORADO: Jailed Muslim shoe bomber has vowed to starve himself to death because he claims he is being 'treated inhumanely'
Good, let him starve. Don’t give him anything to drink either. The sooner we don’t have to pay to keep another Muslim terrorist asslifter alive anymore, the better.
UK DAILY MAIL British shoe bomber Richard Reid is serving life without parole in a Colorado prison known as ‘The Alcatraz of the Rockies’. He was jailed in 2003 jailing for trying to blow up a plane by detonating explosives in his shoes – and sports a gleeming pair of prison issue trainers.
Failed Al Qaeda terrorist Reid is serving life without parole for trying to kill 197 people on board a transatlantic jet on December 22, 2001. The 38-year-old pleaded guilty in 2003 to attempted murder at his trial for trying to kill all those on board American Airlines Flight 63 from Paris to Miami.
He told the court, during his hearing, that he was an enemy of the U.S. and ‘a soldier of Allah’.
The court heard how passengers complained of a smoke smell in the cabin shortly after a meal service. Reid was discovered sitting alone trying to light a match,
where flight attendants told him smoking was forbidden on the aircraft. He promised to stop but, a few minutes later, the attendant saw him hunched over his seat holding one of his shoes which had a fuse leading into it.
The attendant called for help and passengers eventually subdued the 6ft 4in terrorist by binding him with plastic handcuffs, seatbelt extensions and headphone cords.
The British-born radical has written a series of letters to his father Robin in the UK, which contained the threat. One letter, written on August 31, reads: ‘I’m going to look into why my mail’s being delayed and see if I can’t get a straight answer without having to cause problems.
In another letter, sent six weeks earlier, he wrote: ‘It’s extra hot up here this year and on top of the heat from the weather the prison is pumping hot air into the cells instead of cold air.’ During a previous hunger strike in 2009 Reid had to be force-fed and treated for dehydration for a month. (Now, that was stupid. Let the bastard die)
Robin told the Sunday Mirror: ‘I know my son. I feel in my gut that unless someone does something Richard will kill himself for sure. He has nothing left to live for.
And Robin claims his son, who was prevented from carrying out his plot when he was spotted trying to light a fuse in his shoe, didn’t really intend to kill anyone. (Riiiight!)
