I'm actually surprised that the Appeals Board elected to release Latimer. It makes sense to me but I'm a minority of a minority on this issue. I generally think that prison is the place of last resort when it comes to dealing with criminal acts. It's also a tremendously expensive option.
I only make exceptions when it comes to the case of an occasional demonic President such as George W. Bush and his evil Vice President Dick Cheney; they should both be locked up for their crimes against humanity, and the keys thrown away.
I hope some self-righteous defender of life doesn't decide now that he has to assassinate Mr. Latimer. Then, we'll really have a quandary about what to do with him or her.
