The fallout over Castro's suicide has been interesting. A lot of people screaming that he took the coward's way out, deserved to be punished, etc etc. Some are sad that he didn't live long enough to be tortured by other inmates in prison or killed by them.
That's a lot of rage for people not directly involved. It makes sense for those harmed by him to want vengeance. There are a handful of people not directly involved - judge/jury/etc - who were forced into making a judgment by nothing more than luck of the draw, it could've gone to any judge's court in the district, any random jury.
There is a distinct bloodlust surrounding this man, and a profound sense of disappointment that he did not suffer more before he died. (and let's be real, if he didn't commit suicide, they'd still say he did, and nobody is going to look that hard to prove otherwise) Are people not directly involved entitled to this outrage? It seems directly counter to most philosophies, whether they are Christian, secular humanist, or something in between.
