Bye-bye, dickhead

"HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Texas man who earlier pleaded guilty to the attempted bombing of an Austin health clinic where abortions were performed was sentenced on Friday to 40 years in prison, officials said.

Paul Evans, 27, left a nail-packed bomb in the parking lot of the Austin Women's Health Center on April 25, but it failed to go off.

Prosecutors have not disclosed why he wanted to bomb the clinic, but the Austin American-Statesman said Evans admitted in court on Friday he wanted to harm abortion providers.

"I never meant for anyone, except for the abortionists, to get hurt," Evans told U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks."

Forty years. Heh. If I'm not mistaken that means the Federal Pen... the sweetest facilities this side of Guantanamo (which is really where he should be, given he's a fucking terrorist). Oh well, I suppose we can be thankful for small favours. With that baby face he'll be the most popular item on the tier.
