Indy Lass Timothy McVeigh (150* d) RE: Timothy McVeigh 19 Apr 01


A lot of us are discussing the generalities of executing lawbreakers who take away peoples lives or loved ones. This case involves a man who for whatever sick reason took away the lives and/or loved ones of 160-something families who were going about their daily lives and never saw death coming. They were all innocent of what made this man angry enough to do this bombing in his own "eye for an eye" rationale. Should we respond in kind by killing him (it would really have to be 168 times so to speak)? Or should we turn to the victims still alive but suffering and angry and ask them what they need in this situation to help them move ahead with their healing? It would be interesting to find out what each one would want. Maybe we should keep McVeigh alive long enough for each family to have their say about this matter and tailor the results to suit thier needs. Just my two cents...
