        Serious prison time is the least that one can expect. It may not change his attitude but at least he is out of harm’s way, although there are no doubt plenty of fellow terrorists who could replace him.

          I think they should send him to a Trump rally and let his supporters deal with him the way they deal with black people and protesters.

    Well, it looks like some terrorists have already stepped into his place with the brazen attacks in Belgium.
