The point is, the law has already been written. He will be charged with the laws he has broken. He will go to court and face a judge/jury. He will (obviously) be found guilty and face the punishment granted by law.
"He just came in, got a Gatorade, tried to get a beef jerky, didn't have enough money, went over and sat down and just kind of watched people come and go," said Tammy Bailey of Simmons Grocery & Hardware in Ellsinore in southern Missouri.

The pilot landed on Highway 60 and is on the run.
This story stinks to high heaven. Why on earth would a Cessna at a flight school have extra tanks onboard? The max range of a 172 is about 687nm. It's 1850 miles from Ontario to St Louis.

Then be done responding to me.
Just remember that I told you this guy would be labeled a terrorist before anyone knew he was anything other than a Canadian.

Isn't it interesting that they can intercept a Cessna, but couldn't intercept 3 jets on 9/11?

I'm shocked at the amount of 9/11 comparisons, and the number of posts saying the F16 pilots should have shot him down.
IF he tried to commit suicide, I'm going to guess an F-16 can out-maneuver a Cessna, and would have blown him to pieces before he got anywhere near to the public.
As for the 9/11 comparisons, it's an unfair comparison, there is no conspiracy to cover up this incident.
