I believe in the saying “a life for a life.” I think if article 8B goes to prison for 40 years and has to pay $2 million in fines; then so should the guys in article 1B. I think that they should get the same sentence for murder no matter how it is done. The guys in 1B didn’t receive what the guy in 8B got. In both articles death has occurred. So all three of them should spend life in prison for murder and have to pay a fine and any other crime they did at the time.
