So.... offing Osama bin Laden with a round through the eye socket is OK, after all the human destruction he caused.
All right, then, I withdraw the slow death scenario for this al-Gohary creep. Too gruesome, got it. Not that there was ever a snowball’s chance it would actually happen.
How about a nice surgically clean al-Alwaki style drone strike, then? More civilized, for sure.
And by the way, the Nuremburg defendants were hanged not with a trapdoor drop, but hauled up off the floor. Took some of them twenty minutes to die. Wonder what the motivation was.
Thank you. There is a significant difference between legitimate capital punishment and revenge-torture. In these extreme cases, and with the felon’s guilt proven beyond doubt, you’ll find me a defender of the death penalty: swift, severe, and certain.
