I suppose I always find these topics difficult.
The problem for me is that often the victim is the same as the offender in many cases. Horrible things happen to the human mind when its taken down
the wrong path, and it doesn't make you a nice person.
I suppose you watch SVU (special victims unit) on the television and you see person gets harmed, people get brought to justice, fade to black ... but
in reality that victim has had some terrible things go through their mind and they struggle for the next few years. Some come good, some end up just
being miserable or unlikeable, and some go off the deep end.
I've met many people in my travels, and for every person that comes good there are four or five who become professional victims or just generally
difficult to like people. Then there's the odd one that's just sort of evil.
I don't know the full case behind this person. I vividly recall the article when I read it in the news. I was at our family home and it was a
difficult topic. I had never considered children being evil till that point in my life. I don't know where this character has been in his life but
Was he evil before? Was he just confused and did something stupid then became evil? Perhaps its the years of trauma behind everyone knowing his name.
I don't doubt he's dangerous but ... I wish him peace, and hope he finds himself one day. Personally I think revealing his identity to the public
would create a much more dangerous monster - someone how knows they have no way out.
Much better to either kill him without the torture, or try to make something of him and hope for the best. I'd like to say I could deliver the bullet
to him without feeling guilty, but I suspect the trauma would stay with me for life and who knows? Perhaps I end up a druggy loser after.
As much as I disagree with the decision the courts have made, I'm pleased I'm not the one having to make the judgment.
