Che Guevara? The marx revolutionist? It always pisses me off when I see banners/shirts with his face. Yeah, he's cool! So edgy! Not. He was a fucking lunatic, savage and failed human.

I have no respect for people who wear anything with Che on them. Learn some history.
I suggest you read your own post. It is a foolish piece by a foolish and biased person. BUT EVEN STILL all it says is that he oversaw legal tribunals of suspects of very serious crimes. I'm not going to sit here and claim that the Cuban Revolutionaries were perfect, but there is zero historical doubt that the government they overthrew was a corrupt and awful dictatorship. In my very strong opinion, many of the thugs who ran the military and state apparatus under Batista had to face justice.
What the 'author' of that piece should have pointed out is that Che had very little regard to who was actually guilty or not. For him the burden of proof was more about proving the defendant's political beliefs, rather than proving actual crimes.
The real-life Che Guevera has a mixed legacy. He was a tireless self-sacrificer for his beliefs and for the poor and working-class of Cuba, Latin America, and the Third World in general. He was also an adventurist that repeatedly put not only his own life, but that of many of his comrades at unnecessary and fool-hardy risk (especially in Angola and Bolivia). He was also doctrinaire and violent.
He certainly left behind him a trail of blood, but he also certainly left behind him an improved society and economy for the majority of Cuba's working-class, peasantry and the poor. To this day Cuba has one of, if not the, highest standard of living in the Caribbean and Central America -- despite
being under total embargo by the World's only superpower (and one of its nearest geographical neighbours). Imagine how successful the Cuban system would be if it were not under embargo? It's something worth thinking about. The World Bank once had to concede that Cuba has done more to help the living-standard of its people than any other third-world nation on the planet -- by doing the exact opposite of every policy the WB promotes to poor-countries! This is all part of Guevera's legacy.
To sum up: He remains a villain in Miami, but a hero in Cuba. The truth is, as usual, somewhere in between.
