Somali Pirate Convicted and Sentenced to 33 Years - But Not for Piracy

Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse, Somali Man Accused In Ship Hijackings Sentenced to Over 33 Years In Prison:
Muse pleaded guilty last May to hostage taking, kidnapping, hijacking and conspiracy and was sentenced to 33 years and nine months in prison on Wednesday.
Muse now is entitled to free cable TV, 3 squares a days, legal aid, education, books and a cot.

Which, not surprisingly,  is better than what he had in Somalia.

Except for that confinement thing.

Stone walls can a prison make.


  1. Exactly. That is why imprisonment is of no use. They are better off in prison than in Somalia. What we can do, is to hit the camps on the beaches and destroy the equipment. perhaps that will set them back for a while. In the end, troops on the ground is what it takes, but it will take a while until that materializes, dont you think?

  2. So, educate the non-lawyer here. Why does it take 9 months to reach a sentencing decision after a guilty plea? The cynic in me would tend to think it was all about billable hours.
