I've got a hypothetical question for all you people killing time and braving boredom here. Consider: your girlfriend (if you do not have one, use
your imagination, you right-hand lovers) has been abducted and consequently tortured, raped and murdered. Police find the killer and he is given a
fair trial. Meanwhile a completely innocent 18-year old kid is being falsely accused of some horrible crimes and faces double life sentence in a
maximum security prison.
And you get to choose. Either you lock up the criminal who abducted your girlfriend. Or you let the innocent kid go. You cannot pick both. The choice
falls between doing justice to the killer, or saving an innocent kid from rotting away in a jail cell.
Save the kid, let a rapist/killer loose. Lock up the rapist/killer, and you condemn the kid to hell.
