Well said. After reading this article, I came away rather encouraged. It seems to me that the judicial system, and the rule of law worked in this case. The federal government attempted something and the Judiciary branch didn't allow it. That's awesome! Does it suck that the federal government seems to have intentionally tried to obstruct the process? Yes. But because of our system, and balance of powers they were not able to do so. At least that's how I read it.

Moreover, here we are on an Internet forum discussing it, out in the open, that's powerful stuff and proof to me that we still live in a very free society.

As for suggesting that people be executed… Well, that's just silly.
