Not Shedding a Tear

So, the state of Virginia executed the DC Sniper, John A. Muhammad, earlier tonight. I am generally not a supporter of the death penalty, but in this case, I did not shed a tear.

As I previously wrote regarding capital punishment, I am willing to be pragmatic in extreme cases. I think the random shooting of numerous innocent people out in public across multiple states for the purposes of creating a diversion and inciting chaos is quite extreme.
