should I not legally receive a less harsh sentence?
The whole reason we avoid killing people at all is because of the emotion it inflicts in the people that are left behind, and what that emotion leads
them to think and feel and do in response. It's ugly all around. It isn't because it makes worth a damn of difference to the dead person anymore,
because they're dead, and so it's logical they can't possibly care.
We have murdered how many scores of thousands of civilians? Tommy Franks said they don't do body counts. But they'll fly over residential areas
and drop bombs anyway. They've dropped bombs in elementary schools, on weddings, etc., etc., and what have we learned from this? Nothing. Maybe
somebody gets scolded and are told to do a better job next time. That's legality for you huh? The whole reason we went there in the first place was
flawed. Every single one of those deaths is completely unnecessary
. That is a crime not only in my book but to millions of other people as
well, and for good reason.
Maybe you have forgotten but the law ultimately rests with we the people. We elect the people who make the laws in hopes that they will represent us.
So when so many people feel a certain way, yet the laws and actions of our governments don't reflect that, it's time for a serious change.
Legality be damned, because it's broken.
And let me ask under which law Mussolini was captured, shot dead along with his wife, had his testicles cut off, and hung up for all to see?
The law of the damned people, that's which one. Sic semper tyrannis.
