While normally I don't like killing at all, I don't think this soldier should have been charged with murder.
I find it very hard to blame him, because he probably did have a legitimate fear of being blown up. During a war, lines tend to become very blurry
and he probably did exactly what he was trained to do. I've never been a soldier, but I think they may be trained to react in this manner, in this
kind of situation.
I also have a 'knee-jerk' reaction to anyone being convicted on the basis of a sole eyewitness, and no supporting evidence. It doesn't matter who
they are, I just don't trust eyewitnesses 100%. People let their feelings influence them, evidence does not.
