Killing when you have an alternative IS
wrong. There was an alternative here: the rest of his miserable life in a small cell, like an animal. Perhaps like the animal he was. I'm not necessarily a regular church-goer, but showing mercy is one of our faith's (and theirs) strongest tenets. And don't give me the "eye for an eye" thing, that's not only pre-Muslim, it's pre-Christian.
As I indicated to UH60FtRucker, when you don't have an alternative, or don't appear to have one, killing may be the only thing to do.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
