Killer cops are indited. I am pleased. How could I not be? But when they are sentenced, I feel an unease. an unease that has nothing to do with sympathy. Worse could come to them and I wouldn’t give it a second thought.
I can understand vengeance. I will never understand punishment. Punishment–which is the foundation of criminal law. This is the problem.
There is no greater cowardice than to consign vengeance, in the form of punishment, to the State… to the Law. And no greater evil.
