Ventura's wishing death on his fellow servicemen pre-dates this incident.
To date, he has no shown no signs of regret for wishing death on his fellow servicemen. (and at this point, suicide is about the only 'apology' that would cut it....).
And then he does this crap.
This is a classic case of the 'Law' correctly used, delivering 'injustice'.
One of the biggest common delusions of humanity is that 'Law' and 'justice' are somehow inherently related. Lawful states WILL almost always have more justice, due to better order, which is itself delivered by law, but NONE of those three characteristics (Law, Order and Justice) are automatically related.
The most important part of the Law is where it is NOT. The most important part of the Law is what it does NOT regulate, control, etc. The most important part of the Law is the portions of people's lives, public and private, that they run for themselves, even when these portions of their lives involve disputes with other people.
I'm big on support of Law and Order, but I don't delude on what "law" and "order" are. They are certainly not 'justice', even if wise application of Law and Order is one of the best ways to encourage justice.
