Hang 'em High

I agree with Mitch on this point:
As much as I oppose the death penalty on principle, I not only favor it for the perp of this, perhaps the most ghastly murder I've read about recently (Warning: awful story, capable of sucker-punching your opinion of humanity in general. You've been warned)
I also would add this guy to the list:
RICHMOND, Virginia (AP) -- The Virginia Supreme Court on Friday affirmed the death penalty for sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad.
The principle I stand on, in my periodic dissent of the death penalty lies in the remote chance of executing an innocent man. In both of these cases, guilt is a matter of fact, far beyond the reasonable doubt standard.
