Justice for Chris Kyle

On Feb. 2, 2013, famed Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, a Patriot from Texas and author of the book “American Sniper” on which the movie of the same name is based, and his colleague Chad Littlefield were murdered in Texas. On Tuesday, a little over two years after the tragic slaying, a verdict was rendered. “It took an Erath County, Texas, jury less than two hours to convict Eddie Ray Routh of capital murder,” Fox News reported. “State District Judge Jason Cashon sentenced Routh to life in prison without the possibility of parole.” Routh pleaded not-guilty by reason of insanity, which proved unsuccessful. According to Fox, “[P]rosecutors said … that whatever episodes Routh suffers are self-induced through alcohol and marijuana abuse.” District Attorney Jane Starnes argued, “That is not insanity. That is just cold, calculated capital murder.” In the end, the jury agreed, and Routh will now spend the rest of his life behind bars. There’s no bringing back Chris Kyle, but there’s at least some consolation knowing his murder won’t go unpunished.
