And now that PL has brought up the families of the victims, I feel safe in twisting the OP to read, "If Timothy McVeigh's Execution Were Televised, and You Had Lost Family Members in the Bombing, Would You Watch?"

Me? No. For either OP. Let it go, say I.

Also, I agree that televising it is a very bad idea. You're giving him exactly what he wants, lots of celebrity strokes. His 15 minutes has gone on way too long as it is. Just executing him will make him a martyr to the other "Freedom Fighters" anyway, but putting the thing out over the airwaves, and on videotape, will only pump them up even worse.
