Opinion is split on the topic of life or death for Moussaoui. I can certainly understand why many want to execute him - he deliberately conspired to cause the murder of over 3,000 people.
OTOH, remember what happened to Charles Manson, whose crimes shocked a nation.
He is a pathetic, forgotten man. Other than a few loony-tunes, no one remembers him, or is around to make his senior years bearable.
The same is true of many flash-in-the-pans. My only problem with letting him live is that the moonbat contingent will unearth every sleazy tactic to try to free him before his death.
I imagine that it's hard to be on a jury that has to decide punishment for a capital crime. I certainly wouldn't want to have to feel responsible for making a life & death decision.
But, that's the price we pay for living in a society that gives its citizens the power to make their own decisions. Some of those decisions are difficult. That's the flip side of growing up - you have to make the tough choices.
