    No he wasn't.

    Yes it is.
    First of all it is a biased one sided hit piece designed to sway the weak minded. It does not represent the whole story.

    Secondly, You are doing exactly what the author wants you to do ... Make assumptions and buy into the propaganda.
    Nowhere did the information show he was even charged with murder. Yet you come away believing it. Duh!
    The guy fed LIVE people to dogs. You can just keep on making excuses for him though.

    That's right. I am from today's time. Just because SOME people might have been okay with that behavior in the 15th century, in no WAY makes it right.

    And you are still judging by today's standards.
    It wasn't illegal for him to do. And that is what you must judge by.

    So Truman purposely killed many more and caused great many to enduring great suffering.
    What he did was also legal. Do you really not understand the distinction being made?

    The guy was a barbaric murderer who raped, tortured, maimed, and killed people. THAT is the only thing I care about.

    Wrong.
    He wasn't a murderer.

    Yes, according to my morals and values he was a murderer. And no, I do not have to judge him according to his times. Besides, from everything I've read, even his own people were quite disgusted by him and his actions. He was basically shunned.

    All you are saying is that you choose not to view things in the light of their occurrence, choose to assume, and to buy into propaganda.
    That is called bias. Duh!
    Which is exactly what the author wants the lemmings to do.

    No, I'm viewing his actions in accordance with how an educated and civilized society would view them. Regardless of your opinions or how you choose to view things, what he did to those people was horrible.
