We should not rejoice at this hateful person's death. By dying, von Brunn escapes his trial, judgement and punishment for his crime. He was probably expecting to die the day he committed his crime. Some may think this is justice, but I do not.

He was just another failure by Napolitano to look at the lists right at her finger tips.
Maybe she should stop trying to get replacement voters into the Country as an attack on the citizens vote, and start doing her job.

There are many crazies and white power nuts and many others right here in these United States that hate someone or something. There is no way the government can anticipate all the crazies and all their possible moves and still abide by the Constitution. You cannot hold Secretary Napolitano personally responsible for every thing another American crazy does. The people charged with watching those lists like the FBI have more personal responsibility because it is their actual job while hers is to oversee all the departments under her command.

** Note: while writing this post, the author amended the title of the article to include the word "alleged"

Given the fact that our federal criminal justice system will soon be placed on the world stage (referring to the planned KSM trial in Manhanattan) - - I would like to ask the author these questions:

Why does the title of your article not refer to this deceased man as the "alleged" shooter?

After all, he has never been tried or convicted of the charge. Nor will he ever be --unless of course we start trying dead people in this country. (Watch the trial attorneys start drooling now).

And to be even more politically correct, shouldn't your article state that he died an innocent man?

After all, we're repeatedly being told that one is innocent in this country until proven guilty.

I'm not being facetious. If these simple questions cause the average American citizen to have a mental short circuit, then how easy a task will it be for the Administration to explain and sell the $100,000,000.00 Manhattan trial of KSM as a model of justice to be respected by the Muslim world?

Note to the ACLU - this is your cue to rush in and defend the honor and memory of Mr. von Brunnof.
