there are very sad cases of people being abducted as child, turned into child soldiers and later on massacring other people. this is not to excuse these acts of crimes but it makes it more complicated i think. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominic_OngwenPersonally I'd reserve the death penalty for people involved in commissioning or administering genocide. But even with that you'd need some kind of international court that had its shit together.
