    Here's to the death of a jihadist swine.

    How is this any different than douchebags at CBS or some other news staton airing the Virginia tech shooter loser's video or notes? Its basically giving these scum what they want. If those in the Army are smart then they will burn any notes/suicide letters or permanently seal them.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    There any many people who have said that Muhammad and Malvo where not jihadist. This drawing/letter contradicts thier uneducated conclusion. We should see this. It is necessary. Just as we should see the events of 911 so we dont forget who the enemy is.

    If you just execute someone outright you set a dangerous precedent. The law is not infallible and neither is mob justice. Any person regardless of the act has to be afforded basic human rights. To say that they shouldn't as they took the rights of their victims is a ridiculous double-standard.

    Also, the 'punishment' system doesn't work. I know in my country re-offending rates dropped when the labour government brought in the rehab initiatives instead of simply 'put them in a cell and let them suffer'. You do that and eventually you create a generation of bitter, angry little criminals.

    Like due process and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt? And the right to appeal?

    That's one hell of an effective deterrent, I'd say.
    Obviously we were talking about general deterrence, not specific deterrence.

    You're talking about LOTS of victim's families, not per case, so yes. I'm also certain that we could do this for about 10 percent of that cost, but government bureaucracy and litigation expenses what they are........

    I wish we'd get more medieval about it. THAT would be a deterrent, at least for a few.

    And the right to live until 'God' or whoever else chooses his time to die. When man assumes they have the knowledge to choose who should die and who should live we have a huge double-standard issue.

    I mean, let's say random liberal A wants to execute George Bush for war crimes and leading thousands to their deaths. Should you let him?

    random liberal A is an individual, not a government of the peoplel.

    and God has graciously allowed us to choose at least a portion of our destiny....

    The snipers chose to die the minute they pulled the trigger the first time...

    It's upon us now. But I've made my own thoughts about retaliatory "justice" clear enough in that there's a lack of focus on general deterrence issues.

    These events never happened.

    The DC sniper was a White, Right-Wing Terrorist.

    No Muslim was ever involved in these shootings, it is all just a Conspiracy Theory Lie!

    Islam, by Definition, is a Religion of Peace and Beauty... or had you momentarily forgotten.

    Muslims, by Definition, are victims of Christian Aggression... or had you momentarily forgotten.
