The last of five women who were wounded in a deadly shooting spree at the Jewish Federation office in Seattle, Washington is out of the hospital, and she and another victim say a man charged should not face the death penalty. "Killing him would be a shame," Layla Bush, 23, the youngest of the victims, said Tuesday as she prepared for her release from Harborview Medical Center. "I think it would be too easy for him." Bush and Carol Goldman, 35, who was discharged from the hospital Aug. 4, said Naveed Afzal Haq, 30, should instead face life in prison without parole if he is convicted of aggravated murder and eight other charges in the July 28 attack. "I keep thinking death would be too easy for him," Goldman said.
