Re: “Afghanistan suspect could face death” (TNT, 3-13).
We don’t know why the soldier committed the atrocity in Afghanistan. So what is the solution? Kill him? Yes, revenge feels good. But is that the best long-term solution?
I say we need to study people who commit terrible crimes – for years – until we understand the criminal mind. It is also a good example to solve our problems peacefully, not with violence.
Redemption is always possible. Maybe he could even return and apologize to the Afghan people.
