James Taranto last Friday:

One of the few serious “hate crimes” to occur in the aftermath of Sept. 11 was the murder of Balbir Singh Sodhi, a Sikh, in Mesa, Ariz. Yesterday a jury sentenced the killer, Frank Roque, to death for his crime. “The jury brought justice back to our family,” Lakhwinder Singh Sodhi, the victim’s brother, tells Reuters. “They brought the truth in front of the whole world and showed that we are all Americans.”

United Press International notes that today is “World Day Against the Death Penalty,” on which “the European Union will use the occasion to stress its outright opposition to the death penalty and urge countries that still believe in capital punishment to abolish what it considers a medieval practice.”
