Plots to blow up the Arndale, ‘been warned’ with life in prison?

This handsome chap is called Abid Naseer. He had plotted to blow up Manchester’s Arndale centre, potentially killing thousands of innocent lives. He has now ‘been warned’ that he faces life in prison. Should this potential Calvin Klein model have had succeeded (killing all those innocent people) he would have still faced ‘life in prison’.

Abid Naseer, who’s 28, was convicted for his part in an al Qaida plot to rival 9/11.

Pakistani-born Naseer, who had moved to Manchester as part of a secret terror cell, had planned to attack the city’s Arndale shopping centre on an Easter bank holiday weekend.

He was extradited to the UK in 2013 and convicted of terror offences earlier this year following a trial in New York.

Naseer, 28, was found guilty by a New York jury of providing material support to al-Qaeda and conspiracy to use a destructive device.

Now, I don’t see how merely a life of three square meals a day, a bed, hot showers and mouth full of big Bob is enough punishment to deter other sorry excuses for human beings like the pin up you see in the picture. This begs the question, what is a just punishment? I’m intrigued to know what the public honestly thinks.
