  1. This was clearly attempted murder, but I believe it should be punished the same as murder. I could never understand the legal principle that makes them different. I don’t think you should impose a lesser punishment because the victim survived. The criminal should be executed just the same. And the pace of executions has to be accelerated. In California there are hundreds of criminals awaiting execution but the state has no will to carry out the sentences. In Hawaii which has no capital punishment, criminals under a life sentence without parole have actually been released after several decades of imprisonment. By the end of a typical film noir of the 1940s, we were reasonably certain what the fate of the murderer would be. Today we can’t be sure he will be charged even though the crime is right there on camera.
