Default Re: Optimus Prime's characterization (Spoilers)

He was a Decepticon now, and it was Optimus Prime's responsibility as the leader of the Autobots to destroy him. As long as Sentinel lived, humans would never be safe.

With the final Decepticon threat eliminated (Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, Barricade, Soundwave, etc all K.I.A.) and Cybertron ceasing to exist, what could Sentinel Prime be capable of?

Optimus (along with the Autobots) and humanity could have powered down Sentinel, and imprisoned him for eternality for his crimes.

Law is an instrument of commerce and often an obstruction to justice. It is a Court of Law, NOT of Justice.
