"We are not barbarians, we bury the dead". Yeah, yeah. So let's be nice to the poor dead terrorist and give him a resting place in our soil. Everyone has made it clear, nobody wants him. Throw him in the oven, dump his ashes in a cat box or mail him back to Mother Russia.
Given the terrorists actions, I don't think he would like to be buried here. Send him back to Russia.
Why not put him in the same dump that was used to help these murderes by that loser that was in custody but was released? Oh yes, he has that horrible ankle bracelet. What a brutal punishment!
We AREN'T barbarians, even when we are angry. He should be buried somewhere, and given the situation, this is a decision that should be made by the federal government. It should be done quietly, and the young man should perhaps disappear in the way that a witness in the protection program disappears. A different name on the grave, all details held on need to know basis, free of the Freedom of Information Act until all people alive in the US today have died so that the likelihood of desecration of a grave by misguided individuals is most likely past.
Burial at sea would be an option. This was the one chosen after Bin Laden was killed.
Its simple, under the cover of darkness, pile the body into the back of a car and drive out into the country side. Find a nice field, dig a hole and dump the body.
And how can guarding the body cost tens of thousands of dollars a day? A rent a cop isn't that expensive.
Not to be disrecpectful, but just creamate the body as cremation is an acceptable and less expensive method in the long run (for all of us). This recommendation has been attempted twice yet neither post has been published?!?!
There are more cremations than burials overall in the United States. Why can't he just be cremated and his remains sent to his parents in Russia? It's not a matter of being barbaric - what community would want to host his grave site? It'll be a magnet for all kinds of crazy.
