muslim people celebrating the bombing of the twin towers on 9/11 U.S. citizens celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden

I am down with “getting” Osama. He murdered many, and he deserves to pay for that. I am all about justice. What bugs me is the celebrating. I think anytime we are having fun celebrating someone’s death even something’s death we are in dangerous territory. The execution of a mass murderer is something that deserves a knowing nod and a “job well done” to our military. Not a beer bong and a toga party. We need to act like professionals. Act like this isn’t the first terrorist we have ever executed. Do you see the similarity of the above photos? Does that trouble anyone else?

We all need to ask ourselves what would Jean-Luc Picard do? Would he throw up a federation flag and give Riker a high five? No, we would give a touching monologue about the importance of justice, but also the importance of not getting caught up in vengeance.
