A Florida man who mailed pipes filled with explosives to prominent Democrats and critics of U.S. President Donald Trump was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Monday.

Cesar Sayoc, 57, who pleaded guilty in March to using weapons of mass destruction and other crimes, began crying when U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan read the sentence.

Prosecutors have described Sayoc in court filings as the mastermind of a “two-week terrorist attack” motivated by “hate-filled ideology.” They have asked Rakoff to sentence him to life in prison, saying he is dangerous to the public.

Good! I don’t care who he supports or carries out his attacks against, he’s a fanatical nut job that needs to be confined for the protection of the rest of us and he needs to stay there for the rest of his life.

Just goes to show how much hate and anger the Democrats and Liberals have gone to or have been brainwashed… Read more »

Poor Phyll. Trying too hard. Wasn’t it a hater of Republican politicians who opened fire and seriously wounded Congressman Scalise and wounded four others. He supposedly didn’t want Trump to be president. Trump haters hide behind masks and throw a variety of things like fists, bottles, unknown liquid. Anyone remember that happening to Obama, CNN, MSNBC, Nadler, Pelosi? Me neither.
