Life In Prison For Manhattan Bomber
Yet his actions that would indicate otherwise landed him a life sentence in prison.
Police also defused another device in Chelsea and found additional pipe bombs in Rahimi's hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, where he worked in his family's fried chicken restaurant.
Using fingerprints found inside the unexploded devices, authorities tied the Afghan-born US citizen to a series of bombings that injured 30 across the area. Hours later, in the Chelsea section of Manhattan at 23rd Street, another pressure-cooker bomb blew up inside of a Dumpster, blowing out windows of nearby buildings and projecting shrapnel hundreds of yards away.
The second bomb, in the vicinity of 131 West 27th Street, was identified by a civilian soon after the first bomb detonated, the complaint said.
The bombings triggered a two-day manhunt that ended in a shootout with police in Linden, New Jersey.
"One thing a life sentence does is to make sure you don't do it again", Berman said.
But, he added, "I have come to understand why there is such a big frustration between Muslims overseas and the American people".

Prosecutors said Rahimi gave inmates copies of terrorist propaganda and jihadist materials.
While speaking in court Rahimi placed blame on the Federal Bureau of Investigation for not acting on his father's warning.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Crowley argued that everything Rahimi has done since 2016 "has been fueled by hate", and "he has shown no remorse". He was also sentenced to five years of supervised release and ordered to pay $562,803 in restitution.
He said he considered Rahimi to be a danger to the community, citing the "hostile and threatening " nature of the bombings and the influence of "virulent anti-U.S." terrorist propaganda.
Ahmad Rahimi reads a statement to the judge during his sentencing hearing in NY on Tuesday.
"Rahimi's conviction and sentencing are victories for New York City and our nation in the fight against terror". "He failed", said Commissioner O'Neill.
Rahimi, an Afghan-born man living in New Jersey, was convicted of eight charges in October including using a weapon of mass destruction and bombing a public place, one of which carried a maximum life sentence.
