Malvo Guilty of Capital Murder: Sniper Trial Jury to Choose Sentence of Life or Death

Washington Post

As Judge Kozinski noted at school the other day, this is one of those cases where the death penalty should be used. All of the institutional problems about poor representation, lack of evidence, etc aren't in play. It was a well-publicised trial, the prosecution and defense were subject to enormous scrutiny, and the snipers were found guilty. And they are guilty. They shot, among others, small children. They should die.

Of course, you'd have to be crazy to try and kill a small child, so the snipers are insane. And Malvo was only 17. Perhaps the judge should delcare a writ of boys will be boys.
