This week it was decided that he was to stand trial by Court-Martial, and many reports predict that he will face the death penalty.
If i had lost someone on that day, i might feel that a "life" penalty would be more appropriate. But my mind tells me that justice isn't done by making an offender suffer in. The death penalty isn't about causing the person pain, its about executing a punishment in law in the most humane manner.
I might add that i do support the death penalty in a justice system that operates a 100% standard of proof...unless we turn into Minority Report, i don't know of any system in the world that does.
