Be New Yorkers: Leaders Rally the City After Terror Attack

President Donald Trump waded deeper Thursday into the legal procedures ahead for the suspect in the New York City terrorist attack, saying he wishes he could ship him off to Guantanamo Bay and urging for the death penalty.

According to the complaint filed against him, Saipov told investigators that he had been inspired by watching Islamic State propaganda videos on his cellphone, felt good about what he had done and asked for permission to display the Islamic State flag in his room at Bellevue Hospital Center. He killed 8 people, severely injured 12.

Prosecutors have brought terrorism charges against Saipov.

The president doubled down on his earlier tweet, typing, "Should move fast".

The ex-prosecutors weighed-in after Trump doubled-down on his death penalty calls for Saipov in a pair of Tweets and also suggested perhaps imprisoning him at the federal prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The lawyers for Bowe Bergdahl, who deserted his base in Afghanistan in 2009, argued unsuccessfully that candidate-Trump's comment that he was a "traitor" would taint any trial. Three of those convictions were overturned and another three were partially invalidated, and the entire legal process has been beset by endless challenges and allegations of government misconduct.

"Our criminal justice system is based on the Constitution", House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Tex.) told CNN Wednesday.

Some are notable for the high profile nature of their crimes, such as Boston Marathon bomber Djokhar Tsarnaev and white supremacist Dylann Roof.

When it comes to getting "tough" with captured terrorists, it looks as though President Donald Trump is all talk and no action. That is difficult if not impossible to reverse, Graham said. "That doesn't happen by accident". Depending on how many Ford F-150s you own, you might want to debate me on whether "quick justice" is preferable to "no justice at all", but absent an emergency situation, there's really no reason to rush justice.

While the death penalty is becoming more and more unusual in the US - executions have decreased steadily since 1999 - only 19 states have abolished the death penalty. And he contradicted much-criticized comments he'd made Wednesday describing the U.S. judicial system as "a joke" and "a laughingstock" to justify his support for using Guantanamo. Saipov worked as a truck driver, and for the ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft in recent years.

As a candidate, Trump promised to jettison the Obama administration's criminal-justice approach to terrorist detention and interrogation, and start treating captured terrorists as enemy combatants once again.

New York City suffered a terrorist attack on Halloween and, because we're New York City, we're handling it like adults.

Rob Owen, a Northwestern University law professor and former assistant federal public defender who has represented people facing the death penalty, said Trump is giving Saipov's defense team a gift.

"I'm not someone who believes in the death penalty in general", New York's Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference on Thursday.

Civilian courts have been far more effective and efficient in dealing with terrorism cases than the tribunals at Guantanamo.
