Should we desire him to be innocent:
That is emotionally healthy for us, IMO. It means we have empathy for our fellow man,including convicted killers. Unfortunately, it also implies that
the real killer is still out there. This is a bad situation, because an innocent man is being put to death while the threat of murder remains outside
the prison walls.
Should we desire him to be guilty:
It's a dark part of human nature that secretly (or even openly) wants our enemies to fry. It's better to teach love and be loved than enforce
eye-for-an-eye justice in this way. However, some kind of justice is actually taking place. The real killer is being removed permanently from society,
guaranteed to never kill again.
