Someday I will be free, but my life in the future is going to be a nightmare. Yeah I have hope that I can settle down somewhere and be left alone. Every day, people, humans, do incredibly stupid and wrong things. Some will learn and sin no more and some will not. I do not know who or how you decide which group is which or if you need to even bother.
And we go back to the point of which wrongs ore worse than others. Am I more of a threat to society than the drunken cop that killed the construction worker on the Whitestone Bridge four years ago and is already out of prison? How would you feel if he moved next door to you? Would he be coming home drunk? Would he hit your kid while trying to get his drunken ass into the driveway? No you say, he learned his lesson. Try asking the widow of that construction worker how she feels.
