Look, I'm against the death penalty, even in the case of horrible tinpot dictators like Saddam Hussein.
I'm really not going to weep over his grave or anything. Honestly, part of me is glad he's dead.
But did they have to kill him on Eid? It's like, how could they have maximized offense to those who would have been offended? I know, kill him on a holiday that traditionally executions are suspended on!
