Well to change your question, can the son of the murderer have peace with the victim's family?
Yes, he can. justice doesn't mean revenge. Revenge doesn't mean justice.
Think about it, some people kill the family member of the murderer, that is not justice, that is revenge.
There are more to it than that. Why do justice departments work for so long to find a killer? Sometimes it take years and years and years to find one
killer, what is the point of that you suppose?
My view is that the US is not capable of justice anymore. It has done too far down. So whatever comes out of its ashes, I will be part of and do my
very best to make it New Republic, not responsible for the sins of the father.
If you suppress justice, and remove accountability, how can the future generations change>? The point is, if we don't hold anyone accountable, it
will become a culture, and it seems it has already turned in to culture, this isn't something new, it didn't start from 9/11, it has been this way
for a long time now, and since no one has been held accountable, I suspect it has turned in to a culture. Think> you are likely to follow the
footsteps of your forefathers, unless you are disciplined, or shown the truth.
Don't you think it will continue, and nothing will change, because no one has been punished for their crimes?
Heck why do we have punishments for crimes? It is not for revenge, it is for justice, and we set up stricter punishments for more inhumane crimes,
why? Not because of revenge, but because we don't want others alike to not even think of doing that crime, and to know that this will happen to them
if they do.
