Jihad Jane gets only 10 years in prison

Probably no surprise she'd get a rather lenient sentence, but that's what the final ruling was (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman involved in a deadly terror plot has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Fifty-year-old Colleen LaRose had faced a potential life term. But Judge Petrese Tucker accepted a government request to reduce the sentence, because of her extensive cooperation with investigators.

Prosecutors still asked for decades in prison, fearing she remains dangerous.

LaRose, of Pennsburg, Pa., called herself "Jihad Jane" online and agreed to kill a Swedish artist who had offended Muslims.

Both sides agree that she was lonely and isolated and endured harsh abuse throughout her life. But they disagree on how great a threat she was.

Larose told the judge she became obsessed with jihad, saying she was "in a trance" and thought about it from morning to night.

She already has spent four years behind bars.
And even that's not enough. This is a major disappointment, no matter how much she failed to carry out the abominable plot she was going to take part in. She should have gotten much more than a mere decade.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
