Taking away the sins of the guilty prevents the answer to. Why?

If the guilty are innocent then the innocent become guilty and if we don't look to the reasons that a situation has developed then we don't know how to arrive at an adequate reparation for the harm committed. Is this simple or complicated when we have to look beyond the act to the circumstances that created the actions of the actors. Maybe this is a little deep, but because it drills down to the root or core of the problem the solution could then be ascertained. We could find an answer and a cure to an illness that is only the result of conditioning, it would be a faux illness not really a disease curable through biological intervention or chemical intercession. It would expose the real problem with society and developmental issues in how we treat each other from birth to death. The real problem is when people desire to profit from the known as a means to control individuals and populations. Should the innocent ever be the object of an injustice to be an example of what could happen if someone should choose a path that violates the norms of society? Should we expect social change from others because of the example made by the few who suffered an injustice? Once a person has suffered an injustice what should we do as a society?

This is much more to the point... As a person is terrorized and then retaliates in response so the actual perpetrator of the crime is not punished because their actions started a cascade of events that would lead to a path of destruction. The real innocent people that get hurt might not at all be the intended targets the root cause might be actions that lash out in other directions. The bully attacks a person who is achieving, the bully feels as though the other person is showing off that the other person is smarter... The bully lashes out... Was it the intended victim that suffered or was the attack really against the system the bully didn't want to participate in? We put people in positions of participating in theaters that they don't wish to be put in and they lash out... The victims suffer losses because society forces people to do things that are really against their wills... The terrorist or bully in such scenario's is also then the victim... At which point I didn't know is not a good answer to the question of why did the innocent get hurt... The writing is on the wall, a bully in the wrong situation has access to being even more abusive if given a free pass or not! That makes the leaders guilty for the actions of the terrorists... The leaders should know or do know and if they don't know then they need a course in reading and logical thinking. This also passes down to those in control of information provided to the leaders... If the information that should be known is veiled or prevented from being exposed then those in charge like the media have failed everyone... The burden of guilt becomes very wide spread... Many more poeple are guilty for the actions of others than what we first consider when we only look at the surface. The deeper look into the well reveals much more than just a reflection from above...
