Mystical from ljuser over

Serious Crimes, Serious Punishment

Ethical question.
By now most of you have heard of the sniper sharp shooter here in MD/VA.
Shoud this guy be put to death, if caught?

But more important, what made him do this? What causes this kind of killing spree?

And what about the "what if they catch the wrong guy" possibility. As this is a case that is going to be hard to close, it is possible to be a copy cat Zodiac killer...or something else. But the only hard evidence, is being able to match the ballistics to the same gun. Nothing else but speculation. This killer is very 'smart', and had a "godlike'" complex.
Opinions?
