The reason we've moved away from the death penalty, is largely because we've learned that the immediate emotional reaction isn't always the right one.
I think it's well documented that revenge and murder don't bring back the dead - and it doesn't really alleviate the pain. There is a kind of pain that can't be remedied - and the only thing one can hope for is a measure of understanding.
Understanding motives and actions can lead to a kind of peace - but it's futile to expect a cure for the damage caused.
There's a lack of power there that we must accept, or we will let anger turn irrational because we can't find a beneficial outlet.
Waste of potential
