*Sigh*This seems to be a different question than the OP. Now, you've added a third component to the life/liberty, morals/principles diad: emotion. Honestly, I would say that I would, inwardly, be desirous of his acquittal from a purely emotional position.
(That was a sigh of relief, by the way, at finally being able to have a logical and constructive dialogue)
Fair enough, but isn't there some moral value inherent to that emotion? Relying solely upon emotion is almost always bad, but that doesn't mean it cannot inform upon a logically sound and comprehensive moral perspective. Basically, where does that emotion come from? What causes you to be inwardly desirous of his acquittal?
