If someone killed a member of my family in this fashion and this 'punishment' was given to him then I would somehow, one way or another, seek him
out and kill him.
No if's or but's.
Would that be right?
I don't know - probably not.
But I know for a fact that is how I would react - we are what we are.
I don't know how anyone can even begin to justify this, it seems we've forgotten that the primary reason we have penal systems is to punish those
who break laws. Rehabilitation should be a secondary priority.
And it seems increasingly like the interests of the criminal are placed before the interests of the victims and their families.
Most of us are aware that the law can be bought and favours the wealthy and the influential, but it does surprise me that it can be done in such an
open and blatant manner and very little seems to be done about it.
Slightly off topic;
Thanks to the OP for posting this in the B.A.N. Forum - the other thread is in the Posse Comitatus Forum and many non-Americans simply don't look in
Obviously as this happened in the US it is of specific interest for many Americans but it is also relevant to those of us outside the US as it could
just as easily happen in our country's.
