Trump's twitter will probably save terrorist life

DONALD Trump loves to talk tough but his comments may actually result in more lenient treatment for those he is criticising.


The US President’s harsh public statements about alleged criminals, including the man charged in the New York truck rampage this week, could see them walk away with lighter sentences.

Overnight Mr Trump tweeted that Sayfullo Saipov, 29, should be sent to Guantánamo Bay detention camp and get the death penalty.

“NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room. He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!” Mr Trump wrote.

He repeated the comments hours later, tweeting again “DEATH PENALTY!”

The comments have already been seized on by Saipov’s attorneys as evidence of bias.

In fact some legal experts have suggested the tweets could guarantee Saipov won’t get the death penalty.

This is because Mr Trump’s comments may be used to argue that Saipov won’t get a fair trial because the President has already suggested he is guilty and deserves to be put to death.

This argument is currently being tested during the military trial of Seargeant Bowe Bergdahl, who faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty to desertion and misbehaviour for walking off his remote post in Afghanistan in 2009.


Mr Trump was also very critical of Bergdahl, repeatedly calling him a “dirty, rotten traitor” who deserved to be executed by firing squad or thrown out of a plane without a parachute.

During a rally while campaigning for president, Mr Trump even mimicked the sound of a rifle shot saying “bing, bong!” while pretending to fire a gun at Bergdahl.

These statements will now be considered by the judge sentencing the 31-year-old soldier and may result in a lighter punishment.

The judge did not allow the case to be dismissed or for the sentence to be capped because of the President’s comments, as he said he had not been influenced by Mr Trump’s comments and he didn’t think public confidence in the military justice system had been undermined.

But the comments will be taken into consideration during sentencing.

“I will consider the president’s comments as mitigation evidence as I arrive at an appropriate sentence,” the judge, Colonel Jeffery R. Nance of the Army, reportedly said during the hearing last month at Fort Bragg.

In the words of Weinstein

"just relax and let it happen, you might enjoy it if you struggle less"

Trump WILL save the world for the Liberal cretins and though they will rant and rage, they will be better for it.

With the wall going up and trump dismantling the ridiculous immigration policies of Muslim in chief Obama, America will slowly but surely be made great again

hail trump, long live trump!!!!

Veya is right.  Look, the Anglo-American legal system is an adversarial system.  That means that neutrals must stay neutral.  Trump violated that standard hugely.  He just handed the defense counsel a huge defense.

Then again, there's the international propaganda mill.  A biased American justice system is a great talking point for ISIS on-line.  More recruits for ISIS means more terrorist acts.  If ISIS can correctly characterize the American justice system as a kangaroo court, it vindicates what they are doing.

All for Trump's narcissism. Rolling Eyes As Penn says, Masturbatory Populism.

He routinely messes up investigations over here too. When there is a terror attack in Britain, he tweets stuff that undermines the efforts of our detectives and makes it easier for the culprits to escape.
Theresa must stop trusting him with state secrets, the guy's a hot mess.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl just received a 'no-prison' sentence for his desertion of his post.  Last year, Trump made denunciations of Sergeant Bergdahl a staple of his campaign speeches, repeatedly calling for him to be executed.

Ironically, Trump's denunciation was the basis for sentence leniency.  According to the Judge, Trump's comments would work in favor of the defendant:

New York Times wrote:Ironically, Mr. Trump’s comments may have contributed to the decision not to sentence [Bergdahl] to prison. After Mr. Trump seemed last month to endorse his harsh criticism from the campaign trail, Colonel Nance ruled that he would consider the comments as mitigating evidence at sentencing.

Thus, the reckless Trump-talk is beginning to have a backfire effect, as it is measured according to its dilatory impact.  As Trump transitions from ordinary citizen (with an opinion), to Commander-in-Chief, his words get interpreted as superior orders...with official effect.  Issuing (superior) orders for a stronger sentence could be interpreted as improper influence on the judicial process, and hence require mitigation.

Careful where you tread, Pussy-boy.  There's some real shit out there!

Razz

Donnie the Dumpster has already earned for himself the reputation of being the thickest dolt of a Prez since Gerald Ford,  and the most crooked since Nixon...

How long now before he's #1 on both 'Hit Lists'..

Then those Trump fanatics,  the likes of Smelly',  VoD,  (and  'NoIndependentThoughts' --  if he ever returns..),  can celebrate big time  !

To paraphrase a similar comment I've just seen in another thread "He's just not very bright, is he?"

I think 'not very bright' is being exceptionally kind. A menace to humanity is nearer the mark. Apparently his mother wondered what the hell she had landed on the world.
