How to Become a Bounty Hunter

By all accounts, this was not your typical sentencing.

First, U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman in New York sentenced a U.S.-trained Pakistani scientist to 86 years for trying to kill U.S. federal agents and troops.

That came  after defendant Aafia Siddiqui, 38, called on Muslims to resist using violence, the Associated Press reported. She also said she loved American soldiers.

Then afterward,  Siddiqui,  told her supporters, according to AP: “Don’t get angry. Forgive Judge Berman.”

The judge then responded, according to AP, by saying: “I wish more defendants would feel the way that you do.”

AP reported that in February she was convicted of trying to shoot U.S. authorities in Afghanistan while yelling, “Death to Americans!”
