The verdict was the correct one! When the most advanced, richest, and civilized nation in the world (or so we think) takes life as punishment for crimes, it sends the wrong message to the people of countries where the death penalty was abolished, where it's unlawful. It's completely shameful that death sentences are still handed down in more than half of the US states. Considering our 'holier than thou' attitude and our 'do as we say, not as we do' M.O., it's little surprise that the applause meter for the US has fallen so silent.
