    I say YES. His victims were mostly women and children. 12 of them. The man should face the death penalty and his execution should be televised in Afghanistan in my opinion.

    I find the death penalty rather barbaric but we may have to in order to keep the lid on Afghanistan until we can get out.

    He snapped. It happens, but usually when it happens, its not to a sniper with a weapon in hand.

    Yes he should be killed. No doubt. War is hell but when you lose it and commit murder, you should be killed for it.

    He will be tried under the USMJ I believe. His mental condition may prohibit imposition of the death penalty. In no way can we make "exceptions" to his Constitutional rights to further goals of "success" in any military, civil, or political matter.

    I think we should leave NOW. Leave air support behind to deal with the taliban and terrorists. Otherwise all we've done is to emulate Russia. But that's not why he should be put to death. Justice is and it needs to be on display for the barbarians and those they try to influence to see.

    Actually, ALL people who served in the sandbox, and those who sent them, should be executed for war crimes, terrorism and treason(failure to defend the US constitution).

    wow 4 tours wounded twice,but lets throw him under the bus!!. Kill him to save face?? We should not lower ourselves to their level.

    The guy gets a fair trial no other way. The death penalty is for barbarians not Americans.
