I'm 100% opposed to any form of corporal punishment or retaliation, but only on behalf of a flawed human being, close to the crime or loss, say rape
or murder, would I have a lot of compassion for anyone who does experience temporary insanity and react or retaliate. I think we have to realize,
there but for the grace of God go I? For we can only imagine.
However, for a jury and judge far removed from the incident and in cold blood, to me thats just murder, and some kind of psuedo legality first degree.
And I have far less understanding for them.
Many murders are in the heat of the moment, on the edge of reality, and for some it may be over their head to pull back, for example teenagers with
hormone surges or various odd situations I have more sympathy for them and their need to heal, be counciled, be restrained, and gradually the horror
as they face what they've done than for any dictator or Saturnist cold blooded legal system. Thats just evil. People are flawed alright, but the
world around them needs to operate on the highest principals and not give up on any case, ie. recovering the light in people.
In other words, I consider capital punishment and legally locking people up and throwing away the key without a merciful counseling healing system, to
be more murder than most murders, which are usually in the heat of the moment.
In the heat of the moment I have more compassion for and only wish to see counseling and help for them.
