"No details have been made public"

I just heard on NPR that the military trials on prisoners at Guantanamo Bay will be beginning soon, with threats of the death penalty. I feel so out of the loop when it comes to current events; I am assuming that there will not be juries (or, even if there are, who can say they will be unbiased?) and I am concerned of the repercussions, of the way we are handling this. I always have had issues with this - I don't understand the death penalty, at all. And, after watching MS go through the internal demons when her father was killed - to see how it affected her, to wake with her in the middle of the night when the nightmares overtook her - and still, to know that she and her sister fought, tooth and nail, against the death penalty. What good would it have been? Make his family feel the same sort of pain that she and L went through? That's just silly and painful. Her family, on the other hand, didn't understand. Couldn't. They couldn't see past their own pain...the blinding pain and hatred that the boys' actions caused...

Knowing that MS and her sister had such a love - this, for me, began even thinking about radical love might mean...
