Just who does Washington expect will absorb the cost burden?
This public-safety mistake will further endanger our city and the lives of New Yorkers. New York City has always been in the crosshairs of terrorists seeking to attack our nation. Our city likely will always be the No. 1 terrorist target, but yesterday we had another bulls-eye placed on our backs, inviting yet another terrorist attack.
The trials for these murderous terrorists are expected to be long and drawn out -- perhaps taking years, thanks to myriad trial motions and appeals.
At a time when the city, facing a $5 billion budget shortfall, is re- ducing services, can we really afford to incur the significant financial burden of protecting not only these terrorists, but every major landmark and office complex -- including Wall Street, the United Nations and a mass-transit system that moves over 1 billion commuters a year?
Just who does Washington expect will absorb that cost burden?
Then there's the fact that the majority of New Yorkers don't agree that these murderous terrorists are entitled to the rights afforded our nation's citizens -- such as the right to trial by jury.
These terrorists declared war on our city and nation.
The 9/11 attack killed 343 New York City Firefighters and thousands of other innocents. These murderers showed no mercy and didn't think twice about the rights of the innocents they were killing. (continues here at NY Post)
