Certainly not, because I
subscribe to that "every life should be treasured" nonsense. I think that the "value" (a wildly nebulous term in this context, but it's a good fit) of a victim FAR outstrips the "value" of the criminal.
My point is that we get all this fuzzy crap about how the criminals should be rehabilitated into productive members of society because that's just a wonderfully humane and enlightened thing to do, but the purveyors of this fuzzy crap have absolutely nothing to offer the actual victims except a blatant slap in the face. I'd actually like to think these folks aren't raging numbskulls (contrary to evidence), so I'm hoping somebody can fill in the logical puzzle pieces that I must be missing.
Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
