You base this all on second-hand accounts and seem to revel in the fact someone was "put-down" for this atrocity. What makes you different then
Mcveigh? He did what he did out of belief that those he was hurting were part of a nefarious plan.
He was part of a nefarious plan to kill people and you are happy he is dead for it.
Seems your both the same types of people to me. He felt like killing in this regard is justified, and in your mind you are too. While you didn't pull
the trigger, it seems you would of been happy too.
Murderers are always obvious about their intentions aren't they? LOL

You and a few others actually seem to be approaching this case as if McVeigh had just been arrested for the crime, hadn't been tried yet and was
protesting his innocence. What makes me different? Well, we can start with the fact I don't have the blood of 168 innocent human beings all over my
hands and right up to my armpits, as he did. That is one heck of a key difference if anyone is asking, and it gives me every right to take some
satisfaction in seeing the scumbag killed for it.
This wasn't a distant event in a book or a second hand story for me, by the way. I was living here in Southern Missouri when McVeigh pulled his
animal act. It's just my luck of things but someone from my past thought I kinda looked like UnSub #2 and recalled I didn't much care for Waco or
Bill Clinton in general. That led to the better part of a morning spent in the FBI Offices here in town, explaining how I was comfortably seated in a
class room in St Louis, earning my CDL for a new trucking career when the truck exploded. So.. strictly speaking, this particular case is NOT entirely
academic to me. Knowing how innocent people can be railroaded, it was VERY MUCH on my mind that had I not been 100% rock solid for an alibi, I could
have been with little Timmy, whether guilty or not.
SO..... Having shared that little piece of my personal past again (I'd mentioned it shortly after joining as well), perhaps we can drop the
pretending that Timmy McVeigh was anything OTHER than a homicidal maniac who solidified his position after 9/11 as the perpetrator of the single
largest instance of mass murder in United States History. I hope he went straight to a hot place down below, wearing that tag with pride. He'll be
suffering for his act of evil for eternity if there is ANY justice in the life beyond this world.
