She stays inside - she's going to get better medical care and not even have to pay for it.

Didn't they fall for a compassionate parole for another muslim terrorist supposedly very soon to die?

And then learn he wasn't going to die, nearly so soon?

It is appalling that the prosecution would take this woman's side.
Susan Atkins certainly didn't get such treatment after nearly 40 years in prison for the Manson murders when she was suffering from brain cancer. One big difference, besides the nature of the crimes?
Quote
In prison, Atkins embraced Christianity and apologized for her role in the crimes. Prison staff endorsed her release at a hearing in 2005, but she was denied parole for the 13th time. LA TIMES
Not necessarily saying Atkins didn't deserve to spend the rest of her life in prison, but has Stewart even apologized?

I'd be willing to bet if Scooter Libby were still in prison dying of inoperable cancer, Eric Holder would ask for solitary confinement for him to provide extra "quiet" for him. 888bravo
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
