Suing to get out of solitary.
Reports that terrorists responsible for murdering six people and injured more than a thousand.
In the first World Trade Center bombings when he years ago is now filing a lawsuit to get out of solitary confinement.
At the super Max prison in Colorado.
Says he's only in solitary because he's considered terrorists claiming that it's a violation of his.
To process legal Eagles learned -- us and -- -- as a violent.
-- might be a case or there might not what you know when I heard this -- my first reaction was there's no way.
This -- his case is there.
I mean -- he have a case but I I really don't think that he's going to win I mean he has every right to ask.
-- does have the red suited to let the contact ban be lifted.
But really that the folks who decided that this was the right thing to do in the first place -- the people who are in the best position to know what's needed to keep this guy -- -- -- -- And if there's anything we know about terrorists -- that you can't trust them and they're crafty and sneaky and that we don't always.
But he has it had.
Due process or whatever game and so does he have a case in that respect -- he hasn't been able to resign his case.
I think he does have a case and I don't really see with it with the problem is by letting him.
A solitary at least not that not the entire prison system a little up but I'm going to play -- a white supremacist and see how what they think of him.
So you think you an accident and in -- himself there but there is no real justification for keeping him where it is now.
I don't see what the point is of of -- unless unless.
That the penal system has no.
Confidence in their own ability to attract communications with him.
Think -- and I really see how it's an extra punishment.
You know let go out and and and and bill to the yard let's say with that with the gang members and that and the white supremacist.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That he could use our legal system.
To his freedom.
I don't see any I don't hit it -- Cincinnati why anybody.
Fine -- but but you can use a system that he despised enough to allegedly want to destroy.
What serious artist Frida now.
And you have no problem.
I -- no problem with him.
Trying to get himself into.
What I consider a deal less favorable position also pinpoint what it -- -- we -- we have the eighth amendment and it's there added to yet to protect.
People from unreasonable punishment and I don't have a problem.
With checking system and making sure solid second line and and -- and you know not able to talk or communicate with anyone -- -- -- that is undue punishment.
Well I think it's undue punishment and that the thing is it's not as if like let's let's be serious -- not picturing the pilot in the dark in the basement like scratching his days on the law.
It's a contact -- he's not allowed to talk to other people but it's for a reason.
It's not they are for retribution he's not -- Because we like to punish him and we want -- make -- -- top.
-- -- Don't worry about this guy's gonna talk till probably can't figure out what is the president did I watched -- -- -- of course.
Does it does he talked to anyone do we know whether it's -- -- -- And his lawyers the one who says yeah we don't really need to we want to talk to lawyers to begin but isn't it fear that if he gets out of just -- socialize and others then there's the greater likelihood that he will talk or communicate to others who get the words whether to turn tides and back and forth this happened here.
Have confidence and an and an -- had built a career and I went on but you don't don't get that it would be a little too much to.
To -- ought to heighten the possibility that someone like this can communicate the bad guys up or bad guys yeah.
And in and out -- outside their guys -- get the -- they can't regularly.
Convicted terrorists communicate with on the outside of prison walls.
Only -- level.
What we've seen cases where they have gotten through to and we haven't learned to not.
The so you don't you don't think that's a risk.
I think if you think it's a -- you think it's a rest I am because I think that you know this is not just some random really bad bad guy this is a terrorist who.
Indeed that's the way they work is by doing saying what does our country afford even -- -- -- who were intent on allegedly destroying the country.
-- the same legal rights afforded anyone else absolutely does that on just that level.
I think that you don't dude I don't think that I don't think that I think that there is definitely a well because he's using our system to get -- -- -- ordered to get that.
That's the -- and he's in right now trending list then why is a -- I've actually.
But and I'm the one that's saying that -- -- not that I'm.
Only -- you viewers a better system allows the freedom to do this yes but that's the whole content of the American justice system if we can't give.
The best right even to the people who least partly deserving then then then really what can we rely on so we -- the right to hold the government to the standard if it.
Itself has set.
But I don't think you can actually get anywhere because the danger that he's a terrorist and is going to continue terrorist activities is just too great.
And we can't be careful enough drilling here is a good -- what could happen to him once -- -- -- I like to see it happen.
Well we -- -- ladies thank you will just that the.
