If you’re still unsure of your answer, this intelligent NPR article will help you decide. From a lady philosopher: “…If we have any feeling of victory or triumph in the case, it should be because we have succeeded in disabling him — not because he is dead.”

‘…Those mixed feelings get at the heart of the moral ambivalence of the moment: Of course there is relief that an evil mastermind cannot commit acts of terror in the future. But is it ever a good idea — from a spiritual or philosophical standpoint — to celebrate with beer and good cheer over the death of anyone, even a widely acknowledged monster?…’
