Safety

When it takes a jury a mere five-and-a-half hours to decide that a man should be put to death, I feel nearly as unsafe as when there's a sniper in my community. That is all.

Actually, ETA: If this guy were on trial in Virginia, could he get the death penalty under that state's terrorism law, since one doesn't actually have to have killed anyone for it to apply as they're explaining it in the sniper case?
