Many 9/11 Families Support New York Trials
While the right would have you believe that the families of those who lost loved ones on 9/11 are horrified by the decision of Attorney General Eric Holder to conduct trials for alleged terrorists in civilian courts, many families support the move.
“If you’re afraid of terrorists, then they’ve already won. It’s poetic justice,” said John Feal, who lost half his foot at Ground Zero and now is pushing to help other survivors of 9/11. “Bring ‘em to New York, and hang ‘em from the Statue of Liberty.”
“It is too bad there are no federal death chambers in New York City,” said Kenneth Specht, a former FDNY lieutenant.
“This allows for justice to come full circle,” Specht said. “Though the attacks against this country, against this city, were planned on the other side of the world, and [9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik] Mohammed was captured in Pakistan, he will face justice in the city that bore the brunt of his hate.”
“I don’t know what took them so long,” said Glen Kein, a former emergency services cop who spent 700 hours at Ground Zero.Click here for reuse options!
