A pre-sentence report has recommended that Hamid Hayat, the Lodi man convicted of terrorism last year, spend 35 years in prison.

His defense calls that recommendation “draconian and unfair.”

    Well well, I am an atheist and you are religious. It makes me wonder which is the better road ti take. I take the road of logic and reason, and have a wonderful free LIFE. You may take the road to prison and soend your days contemplating or whatever it is that will occupy your tme. I can not forgive terrorists. You will have plenty of time in a safe environment to get a new view on life.

    contiued: We can say however, in our politically correct response, that due to his core beliefs (not religious) he should NEVER be allowed to have parole. He can never be rehabilitated. How is that PC police? We love Muslims, but they must obey the laws!

    It is now politically correct to call Umer what he is. A terrorist. Thank you. Now as for theis young man, its doubtful that he can be "rehabiitated" since his motivation seems to have something to do with his core belief system. I don't want him to "feel" bad in prison by thinking that we think iy is do to his religious beliefs. The fact that "Allah Akbar" (god is great) was yelled as other terrorists crashed planes into the world trade center doesn't necessarily imply this act was religiously motivated.

    Shocked that he is still living in Lodi? The Boys and Girls Club of America took up donations for him when he was released ! Good Morning America How Are Ya !

    I am surprised someone can defend this guy and actually feel good about it. I am more shocked to hear that his father is still living in Lodi. What a weak society we have become. It's no wonder why we will be struck again.
