Prior to sentencing, the Judge asked the defendant if he had anything to say His response: After admitting his guilt to the court for the record, Reid also admitted his 'allegiance to Osama bin Laden, to Islam, and to the religion of Allah,' defiantly stating, 'I think I will not apologize for my actions,' and told the court 'I am at war with your country.' Judge Young then delivered the statement quoted below: Judge Young: 'Mr. Richard C. Reid, hearken now to the sentence the Court imposes upon you. On counts 1, 5 and 6 the Court sentences you to life in prison in the custody of the United States Attorney General. On counts 2, 3, 4 and 7, the Court sentences you to 20 years in prison on each count, the sentence on each count to run consecutively. (That's 80 years.) On count 8 the Court sentences you to the mandatory 30 years again, to be served consecutively to the 80 years just imposed. The Court imposes upon you for each of the eight counts a fine of $250,000 that's an aggregate fine of $2 million. The Court accepts the government's recommendation with respect to restitution and orders restitution in the amount of $298.17 to Andre Bousquet and $5,784 to American Airlines. The Court imposes upon you an $800 special assessment. The Court imposes upon you five years supervised release simply because the law requires it. But the life sentences are real life sentences so I need go no further. This is the sentence that is provided for by our statutes. It is a fair and just sentence. It is a righteous sentence. Now, let me explain this to you. We are not afraid of you or any of your terrorist co conspirators, Mr. Reid. We are Americans. We have been through the fire before. There is too much war talk here and I say that to everyone with the utmost respect. Here in this court, we deal with individuals as individuals and care for individuals as individuals. As human beings, we reach out for justice. You are not an enemy combatant. You are a terrorist. You are not a soldier in any war. You are a terrorist. To give you that reference, to call you a soldier, gives you far too much stature. Whether the officers of government do it or your attorney does it, or if you think you are a soldier, you are not , you are a terrorist. And we do not negotiate with terrorists. We do not meet with terrorists. We do not sign documents with terrorists. We hunt them down one by one and bring them to justice. So war talk is way out of line in this court You are a big fellow. But you are not that big. You're no warrior. I've known warriors. You are a terrorist. A species of criminal that is guilty of multiple attempted murders. In a very real sense, State Trooper Santiago had it right when you first were taken off that plane and into custody and you wondered where the press and the TV crews were, and he said: 'You're no big deal.' You are no big deal. What your able counsel and what the equally able United States attorneys have grappled with and what I have as honestly as I know how tried to grapple with, is why you did something so horrific. What was it that led you here to this courtroom today? I have listened respectfully to what you have to say. And I ask you to search your heart and ask yourself what sort of unfathomable hate led you to do what you are guilty and admit you are guilty of doing? And, I have an answer for you. It may not satisfy you, but as I search this entire record, it comes as close to understanding as I know. It seems to me you hate the one thing that to us is most precious. You hate our freedom. Our individual freedom. Our individual freedom to live as we choose, to come and go as we choose, to believe or not believe as we individually choose. Here, in this society, the very wind carries freedom. It carries it everywhere from sea to shining sea. It is because we prize individual freedom so much that you are here in this beautiful courtroom, so that everyone can see, truly see, that justice is administered fairly, individually, and discretely. It is for freedom's sake that your lawyers are striving so vigorously on your behalf, have filed appeals, will go on in their representation of you before other judges. We Americans are all about freedom. Because we all know that the way we treat you, Mr. Reid, is the measure of our own liberties. Make no mistake though. It is yet true that we will bear any burden; pay any price, to preserve our freedoms. Look around this courtroom. Mark it well. The world is not going to long remember what you or I say here. The day after tomorrow, it will be forgotten, but this, however, will long endure. Here in this courtroom and courtrooms all across America, the American people will gather to see that justice, individual justice, justice, not war, individual justice is in fact being done. The very President of the United States through his officers will have to come into courtrooms and lay out evidence on which specific matters can be judged and juries of citizens will gather to sit and judge that evidence democratically, to mold and shape and refine our sense of justice. Women Nike Free Run 3.0 V4 Volt Reflective Silver Platinum,LAS VEGAS, Nev. A looming driver shortage, which could prove the we seen is already manifesting in a significant drop of applicants for driving jobs and enrolments for driving schools, according to executives from three large US fleets. Express Enterprises said during a panel entitled Repaving Truckload Road to Success at the Truckload Carriers Association annual conference. Fuller said he has seen a 25% drop in job applications over the past month. England. The session was moderated by Lana Batts, co president of Driver iQ. Leathers confirmed he has also seen a double digit decrease in applications since last year and noted enrolment in driving schools is also on the decline. think the driver shortage is upon us, Leathers told the large crowd in attendance adding that he is seeing million mile drivers throwing up their hands and throwing way the keys. Leathers said it critical for carriers to keep raising with shippers the issue of the driver shortage, and the higher wages necessary to attract newcomers to the industry. The fact that some private fleets are paying 20 30% more than for hire carriers is a signal that shippers understand the need for better pay, he said. But England, who has been a member of TCA for 35 years, wondered if there is really anything new about these developments. been having these exact same discussions for all these years. We talked about getting more money to our drivers and I think we largely failed, he said pointing out that when inflation is taken into account, drivers today may actually be making less than they did in the 1980s. Fuller countered that unless shippers are willing to accept higher rates, it difficult for carriers to raise salary levels. The impact of pending new Hours of Service regulations will further damage the situation all three agreed. Fuller said older drivers may decide to retire early because they feel the new hours of service, which require more rest and allow less driving time, amount to and less pay. Moderator Batts wondered how carriers plan and manage their operations during times of uncertainty over how hours of service will be dealt with in the future. have a Plan A, Plan B and Plan C, acknowledged Fuller. don know which contingency it going to be but you have to be ready for it, Fuller said. Leathers said he is planning based on the new hours of service legislationbeing ready as of July 1. He believes there is as high as a 70% chance this will happen. All three executives considered as ridiculous the government refusal to postpone hours of service legislation until the current court challenge of that legislation has been decided . so unreasonable to take that sort of direction, England said. Leathers argued it illogical to change hours of service without first doing a better job at enforcing the current rules. Last month we reported that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rejected a request from the American Trucking Associations to postpone implementation of the new US hours of service rules. As a result, significant changes will go into effect as scheduled July 1, barring a court ruling to the contrary before then. A US Court will hear arguments against the new rules in March. Annette Sandberg, a former FMCSA administrator and now principal of TransSafe Consulting, said carriers shouldn count on a delay or the courts overturning the new rules. Sandberg said carriers should begin training drivers on the implications of the new rules now, so that they prepared for the roll out in July. during that reset. In addition drivers will require a 30 minute, off duty rest break within their first eight hours on duty, limiting their total on duty time to 13.5 hours. Fuller believes the new legislation could cause an 8 10% loss in productivity. more efficient that you are, the more of a hit that you are going to take, Fuller said. Leathers estimate was about the same but he said he hoped that could be worked down to a 4 5% loss through fine tuning. He explained that it somewhat of an unknown at this point whether there is driving time in the system not being properly utilized because drivers do have more time. Is an hours of service surcharge to cover potential losses an option? the cost has to be passed along, England argued. don think it will be as an hours of service surcharge though. It will be another one of those things we will have to be constantly fighting about. there is one positive to the new hours of service legislation it that it will be final nail in the coffin for excess capacity, according to Leathers. these (loss of efficiency) numbers are anywhere close to accurate, it will lock up capacity in a hurry, Leathers said. When I sit and rad all these aticles about driver shortages, I can help but laugh. If this industry would just go back to treating the drivers they had for years with respect and if the governments would stop treating all truck drivers like criminals and start treating them like adults by stopping the constant flow of regulations down our throats every year when they themselves admit they have no idea if any of these regs will even work. Also, my biggest pet peeve is with load brokers and shippers. If someone comes in with a bit so low and makes you wonder how they can possibly do the job safely at the price quoted Your answer is they can I have seen far too many small firms here in the Brampton Ontario area that put four guys in a truck sometimes when not all are licensed drivers. They lowball for the business by doing a trip or two for free while have non licensed drivers on the road. That practice must be stopped before this industry is going to get any respect back from the general public, older drivers, who have been screwed so many times, they are still spinning around. Information is the best tool. Unfortunatly there is a constant lock on the doors of government, carriers, load brokers and shippers when it comes to this. Until this attitude towards the main part of this industry , THE DRIVER , changes to one of respect , you will have this problem for the next 100 years !!

Channel 2 saw investigators confiscate everything from phony luxury bags, Nike Air Jordan's to high end jeans. Lt. Jeff Cantin said, "Over the past couple of days, we've hit seven businesses in the southwest side of Atlanta looking for counterfeit materials. One suspect police took into custody for the forged items was Samba Ba. They also arrested four other people. Cantin said police targeted two businesses and found fake Uggs, Nikes, bags and clothing. Channel 2 witnessed police remove so much merchandise, they needed a second truck. "They don't have the emblems like Michael Kors or other big name brands on them," Cantin said. Police say the suspects used a machine they found inside a discount mall to press fake brand name labels onto generic cheaper bags. Police say they then sell the bags at slightly discounted prices often for hundreds of dollars. Cantin said they also search for real items that may have been stolen in previous crimes, like smash and grabs at retail stores. "People go in and grab handfuls of clothing and run out," Cantin said. Police said they also look for other crimes when doing these raids and they told Channel 2 they recovered drugs at one of the locations.

Women Nike Free Run 3.0 V4 Volt Reflective Silver Platinum West Vancouver Sea to Sky MLA Joan McIntyre announced Tuesday she would not seek a third term in the 2013 provincial election, joining 11 MLAs who have said they wont be running for re election. The mass exodus, which has included high profile cabinet ministers Kevin Falcon, Mary McNeil and George Abbott, comes as Premier Christy Clark and the Liberal Party have struggled in the polls. But McIntyre said she had always planned to serve only two terms in public office. I had a very lengthy career in the business world, said McIntyre. I was the owner and principal of McIntyre Mustel Research, and I worked almost 35 years in business, so this was really my opportunity to give back to public life. McIntyre didnt rule out the possibility that she might lend a hand in the upcoming campaign, and said she still supports the party. I think theyve got a big job ahead, I think everybody recognizes they have a big job ahead, said McIntyre. That said, a lot can happen in very short order . . . weve got our work cut out. Battle lines in the North Shores other three provincial ridings are starting to form as the incumbents have confirmed they are returning for the 2013 provincial election and opposition parties are preparing to nominate challengers. West Vancouver Capilanos Ralph Sultan was acclaimed as the 2013 candidate at a nomination meeting held last week. Sultan said he is returning to run on the Liberals record, especially as it relates to the economy. I think the track record of this government over the last 11 or 12 years is very sound. Fiscally, weve had one of the best performances in Canada, if not the world. (Were) one of the few governments which still has a AAA credit rating, which is terribly important in terms of business confidence, he said. Sultan won his seat for a third time in 2009 by a margin of 53 per cent the widest of the North Shores four ridings. But he doesnt expect an easy rematch for his seat. It would be foolhardy to ever be complacent. We still dont know where the Conservatives are, he said adding, that he will likely face the NDPs Terry Platt once again, whom he considers a formidable opponent. The recent loss of several high profile Liberal cabinet ministers isnt the death knell some are making it out to be, Sultan said, and it doesnt say anything about the Liberals 2013 chances. The government faces a huge issue of public trust. I think we are seeing that now in a turnover of senior cabinet ministers, he said. I think that will go part of the way to creating the reality that this, in fact, is a new set of people in town. People are just tired of the same old, same old. I suppose theres a few people out there who are tired of Ralph as a matter of fact, he added. Naomi Yamamoto will also be running again in North Vancouver Lonsdale. Yamamoto won her riding by the smallest margin on the North Shore, 12 per cent, and she now faces a high profile NDP candidate in City of North Vancouver Coun. Craig Keating, as well as a yet to be named Conservative challenger who may siphon off right wing votes. But Yamamoto said she is not daunted by the race now any more than she was in 2009. I dont think Id run if I didnt have a chance at winning, she said. We never ever thought in 2009 that it was a slam dunk. We fought that campaign like we were the underdogs the whole time and this campaign will be the same. Yamamoto said she will campaign on ensuring her constituents have a free enterprise government that knows how to manage this provinces fiscal resources. Jane Thornthwaite has also been acclaimed to run again in the riding of North Vancouver Seymour, where she will face first time NDP candidate James Hanson, who was nominated last year. Thornthwaite won North Vancouver Seymour in 2009 by a margin of 32 per cent, and the riding has been Liberal since 1991. The New Democrats are hoping to have their candidate selected by the end of September. I can tell you, on the North Shore, we are strong, she said. Theres a lot of excitement there. The Conservatives have found their popularity increasing almost entirely at the expense of the Liberals, Kewley said, noting the recent defections and retirements. The Liberals are tanking and every time something like that happens, our phones light up and were having amazing people coming through the door.
