Milosevic Dead

At the IHT is coverage of the death of Slobodan Milosevic.

I thought it odd that this comment was made:

Leaders in the region and in Western Europe immediately expressed regret that he would never be convicted for his role in the disintegration of Yugoslavia and in three wars in the region during the 1990's.

Why odd?

Well, just how many years does it take to "convict" someone in a UN court, anyway? Not only that, what would they have done with him anyway? Life imprisonment? He got that, already. Think about it. He has been locked up, since he was locked up, right? He died locked up, right?

Life Imprisonment.

Sentence Served.

Game Over.

Long story, short. Problem solved.

Whether on a TV show or in real life I never understand it when people are angry that a criminal died before getting his "justice" served.

In some TV programs when a criminal commits suicide before trial, they portray it as an escape from justice.

Sorry, it is an expedition TO justice.
