Justice for the City




There is a part of me that wishes Osama bin Laden had been captured alive, so he might be tried here in New York City for his crimes, much as Adolph Eichmann was fifty years ago in Jerusalem. It is, nevertheless, satisfying to know that some justice has been served for the great crime against this city and its residents, and against the rest of this nation.

It scares me that half of the world is celebrating the death of a man.

So now what? Should the middle east now want some justice for the hundreds of thousands of civilians that have been killed to get to this man? Should they now want justice for years of poverty due to the theft of their natural resources?

To stop killing is not by killing, to stop terror is not with terror.
Expected better comments on design observer, shame really.
