This day in history - June 13, 1997: Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh is sentenced to death

On this day in 1997, a jury sentenced Timothy McVeigh to death for his part in the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995.

I guess extremism in the defence of some screwed-up anti-government understanding of liberty is a vice after all.
