For years, Optimus Prime had tried to be peaceful in his resolution of conflict. He knew that Sentinel Prime was beyond saving, because he had already made his choice, and Optimus knew he had to bring down the hammer of righteous indignation on him.
I disagree. Not with him killing a Decepticon in a combat scenario, that is understandable -- and not much can be done to prevent killing a man or bot in a situation where the opposing side is convinced to strip life.
BUT what I really found disgusting was how Optimus took out Sentinel.
