go “Any guy crazy enough to even try to make a bomb needs to face life in prison,” sophomore theatre major Logan Rausch said. “The law makes sense. We don’t need someone with that potential to be given any opportunities in the future to really do damage.”

follow Faisal Shahzad, who pleaded guilty to 10 counts in 2010 for attempting to detonate a car bomb in Times Square in New York City, was to face a minimum of life imprisonment, to which he was sentenced later that year.

Shahzad was charged for almost precisely what Leonard faces charges for, because both were attempts to use a weapon of mass destruction. The difference comes with motive, and with Shahzad’s more direct correlation to terrorism.

With Shahzad automatically going in with life in prison, one can only wonder what the courts will decide to do with Leonard. The two are certainly not the same, but it is a close example when it comes to the seriousness of charges faced related to explosive devices.

“I remember hearing about Shahzad’s case, thinking about the life in prison charges, and wondering if it was because he was classified as an Islamic terrorist, or if it was just the attempt at the use of explosives that gave him life in prison,” UWF visitor Amanda McAdams said.

“I think it’s definitely interesting to compare the two cases, but I think the courts will look less at Leonard, unfortunately, since his motivations were different,” McAdams said. “Personally, I think he should face life in prison, but I almost doubt that he will, even though he would be a future threat.”

Leonard is set to have his first appearance in court on Tuesday and is still being investigated on prior criminal charges. His car and home are also still being searched.
