Hitler was responsible for the death of millions upon millions of people. The only sad thing about his death was that it didn't happen a lot sooner.
Actually, the sad thing is that he didn't live to stand trial so that he had to actually FACE his accusers. THEN when he died, there would have been that indefinable but real feeling of justice having been done. See also the death of Usama Bin Ladin at the hands of the Navy SEAL team, as shown in a somewhat over-dramatized movie Zero Dark Thirty.
G, we absolutely agree that Hitler had to die - but taking the coward's way out rather than facing up to the consequences of his choices is, to my way of thinking, anticlimactic and - in a way, Hitler's last gesture of defiance, depriving us of the option to end him through trial.
