Would you release THIS GUY who killed the American medic pictured below 13 years ago? The killer was 15 when he threw a grenade at our American who died.
So, what do we say “Sorry, US Army Delta Force Medic, Christopher Speer. Sorry, Mrs. Speer and your kids, Taryn and Tanner. This guy was only 15 and he didn’t mean to kill”…?
The article sites all sorts of things about Omar Khadr’s life with Al Qaeda relatives. He’s 28 now, and a Canadian judge says he finds him changed and so he can be released. “On October 29, 2010, after taking the stand, Khadr apologized to the widow of Speer for the pain he had caused her, further stating that his eight years in prison had taught him “the beauty of life.””
Believe him? Should he be released? He was very young, he was influenced…….he apparently is a changed man. Should that all count? Is this cut and dried for you or a dilemma? Can this murderer have just got carried away when he killed? After all these years, could he be a changed man? He might have been released yesterday or he’s slated for today.
By the way, Speer was awarded the Soldier’s Medal for risking his life to save two Afghan children who were trapped in a minefield on July 21, 2002, two weeks before his death. I wonder if Speer would want this kid released.
