Jeralyn Merritt at Talk Left is appalled that poor Major Hasan might get the death sentence.
How barbaric that the military will seek to kill a man with no sensation in his body from the chest down. He might prefer it (I certainly would) but it's inexusable [sic] behavior for a civilized society and way beyond the pale of decency.Hasan of course was paralyzed in the course of his murderous rampage. Had he not been shot and paralyzed, he might have killed or wounded even more people. But somehow those who want him executed for his vicious crimes are "barbaric."
What's "inexcusable" and "beyond the pale of decency" is that anyone should take seriously the ravings of a fool like Merritt. There is of course nothing the slightest bit indecent or barbaric about executing a murderer like Hasan. His paralysis is completely irrelevant. Death is more than justified for someone who carried out the premeditated murder of thirteen people, and attempted to kill many more. If sympathizing with terrorists & killers is the mark of a "civilized" society, we'd be better off with quite a bit less of that type of civilization. We'd certainly be better off without imbecilic leftist lawyers who always put the interests of the criminal first.
