"But, maybe there's something I don't know, or some factor I don't see"
Slippery slope, my friend. One could say the same thing in praise of the devil himself, which in the case of Pollard, probably is the most apt comparison.
There is no confusion. His acts were treasonous, and immoral. He should have been executed for them, but it wasn't my call.
I hardly think he can be compared to the devil. He was a traitor, and that was enough to condemn him and it is still enough to keep him in jail for the rest of his life and then some. Past that, it's G-d's province to judge him, not mine.
