Just a quickie. Basically no. I’m sorry, I know the guy was a bit of an arse (and yes..I’m intentionally underestimating his arseyness here…it’s intentional) but I don’t think he should be killed….punished certainly…for the rest of his life..but not killed. Why the hell does everyone think its fine. Since when did it become the responsibility of agnostics who wish for apocalypse as soon as possible so that the world has a chance to carry on living without us imbecilic humans clogging up the place to defend the ‘thou shalt not kill’ thing. Seriously…the guy’s evil…but if he’s executed then it really is just lowering our moral standings and sending out the message that killing people is fine. This is the kind of attitude we really should be stopping. I want my apocalypse clean and ecological…not just everybody murdering everybody else one by one because of hate prejudice and everyone being twats. Its not because I think it’ll make a martyr of him, although that does count for something. Justice is a weird thing…a very weird thing. I don’t know how it should work..but I do know that killing him ain’t gonna bring anyone back. It may make the families of genocide victims feel better to know that their own lust for violent death has been sated…but seriously..there’s more to it than that. And don’t you dare give me that ‘but it’s under their legal jurisdiction’ bullshit. By that methodology Saddam should still be in power because Iraqi jurisdiction made him King or Fuhrer or whatever he actually was. We’ve got involved..so we surely should help them sort this shit out.
Damn I’m pissed off this morning. Sorry for the moodiness…for a much more balanced discussion check out Subliminal K’s thoughts on the matter. Just being emotive and slightly out of touch with the real world.
