The Terrorist is Dead

" Justice has finally Prevailed ! "
That's what I said to my friends when we heard that the Police's Special Unit Densus88 has successfuly killed the Malaysian Terrorist Noordin M. Top after nine hours of shoot out at a house rented by a group of terroists in Solo, Central Java, earlier today.

The good news was announced by the Chief of National Police Bambang Danuri, who gave reporters a brief explanation about the incident and show photos of the terrorist's finger prints.

The Malaysian Terrorist was responsible for a series of bombings that have killed hundreds of people, mostly Muslims, in Bali and Jakarta, since 2002,

The Police action has been praised & supported by President Susilo Bambang Yudoyono and the largest Muslim organization in Indonesia i.e. Nahdathul Ulama (NU).
However, Abu Jibril i.e. father of Muhammad Jibril the suspected financial arranger of terrorist suicide bombing last July, has condemned the Police raid on the terrorists. He called the raid as 'brutal' because in the raided house there was a wife of one of the terrorists suspect who's pregnant.

I hope that the death of the Malaysian Terrorist would not soften the Police's efforts to hunt down other terrorists.

Depends on your definition of justice, I suppose.

The definition used is that used by common people i.e. upholding of rights and punnishment of wrongs.
Thus, not the legal one which should be based on applicable law.
This definition is appropriate for terrorists who killed hundreds of innocent people yet untouchable or cannot be corrected by by the law for many years. Especially the other terrorists that died with the Noordin have been sentenced by the Court for their involvement in previous bombings.
