In a column published on WND.com on Sunday, rocker Ted Nugent called for "swift justice" in the Boston bombing case. One of the two suspects in the terror attack, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in a shootout with police last week while his younger brother, Dzhokhar, was taken into custody late Friday and charged on Monday.
"The jihadist punk in custody is obviously guilty of committing murder, terrorist acts and a whole book of other crimes, but he won’t be brought to justice," Nugent writes. "Justice is supposed to be swift. At least that’s how our Founding Fathers thought it should be."
Nugent went on:
Imagine if this jihadist punk had basically committed the same crimes 150 years ago. He would have been swinging from an oak tree in Boston Common no longer than 60 days from the date of his arrest. That would be justice.
But that won’t happen to this guilty voodoo vermin. If he’s ever executed, it will be many years from now after our so-called justice system goes through its strange eternal, time-wasting, court-and-lawyer maneuvers from hell. The ugly truth is that by the time this voodoo punk is executed, America will probably have had to deal with any number of other bombings and killings by other voodoo nuts.
He probably won’t go to trial for more than a year due to court-sanctioned delays. Once he’s found guilty, he will be afforded any number of appeals that will take more years, possibly more than a decade. The young voodoo nut has got a long life in front of him, thanks to America’s screwed-up justice system.
A perfect example of justice delayed is terminal voodoo mass murderer Nidal Malik Hasan, who killed 13 soldiers and wounded 32 others at Fort Hood in 2009. Allahu Akbar, my ass.
The constant delays in the justice system are a "joke," Nugent writes, adding that "had our modern system of justice been in play in 1865, Booth's conspirators would have did in prison of old age instead of having their necks properly stretched."
"My dream of real justice would be a July 4 celebration of stringing this son-of-a-b-tch up in the Boston Common and letting the crows pick on his rotting flesh," the rocker concluded bluntly. "There will be no swift justice for the Boston voodoo punk. He’s got a long life ahead of him. How pathetic."
