Ahmad Khan Rahimi was sentenced to multiple life terms in prison for detonating two pressure-cooker bombs on the streets of New York City that injured 30 people. According to Fox News, the convicted terrorist has shown no remorse for his actions and attempted to radicalize other inmates who were in federal prison with him.
"He is proud of what he did, scornful of the American justice system, and as dedicated as ever to his terrorist ideology."
Rahimi was convicted in October of planting pressure-cooker bombs in New York and New Jersey on Sept. 17, 2016. The first bomb went off during a Marine Corps 5K run in Seaside Heights, N.J. Luckily, nobody was injured in that explosion because the race had been delayed. Later that night, he detonated two bombs in downtown Manhattan, injuring 30 people.
Following a two-day manhunt, police in New Jersey stumbled upon Rahimi. He engaged police in a shootout and was shot several times, but managed to survive. No police were injured during the exchange of gunfire.
He still faces charges relating to the bomb he allegedly set off in New Jersey.
