I think the reason this case sparks so much debate is the life sentence. OK, he murdered the robber- no question about that. But most people can see some attenuating circumstances that make the sentence seem harsh. It is a case of dura lex sed lex.

Had he gotten 20 years, this would not raise as many hackles, IMHO.
