First of all I am against civilian trials for the obvious terrorist. But why does it cost over 200 million dollars to put these creeps on trial? First off they are mostly dirt poor, they have no money. Second why do they get these high priced lawyers to defend them while an average american only gets a civil defendant attorney for his trial? Third these people did not pay taxes yet we support them in a slam dunk case, or they may get off scott free exspecially when some of the defendants were held up on the battle field and thus no "evidence was collected" to even hold a trial. mistrial and released to the general public. Fourth the ones that were captured here... ie the underwear bomber...is not a US citizen yet we will pay millions upon millions of dollars for his defense and protection? I am totaly shocked and in unbelief at the stupidity of this sham....Hell I will buy the bullets and even offer my own gun ...so no tax payers money need to be supplied and I will even volenteer to pull the trigger for free.....Bam justice served. Or are we going to watch the defense propose temporary insanity...or even brainwashing as a defense? so that he may get off scott free....as the attorneys get paid millions and the judge...all for what common sense could prove in a five minute closing speech? Military tribunals cost a hell of lot less and it could be wrapped up in one day....boom done. And even if we do try these people in civilian courts, use the pricing of an average court proceeding not this shambles of a pretense for a world stage show.
