I have been watching several shows that made me wonder about this. One movie is where this guy kills a little girl and gets caught and sent to prison. But somehow someone else is blamed for the crime. But the second person didn't do it. The first person gets out and goes after another little girl. Any way he gets caught again and killed. I wish I could remember the name of this movie but I can't. In the bible they stoned people to death for murder and rape you didn't hear a lot about murders and rapes much cause of the punishment. So do you think there would be less crime if we still stoned people to death? Or are you one that will feel sorry for someone that killed someone? Just sort of forgive and forget? What about the victims family? It says in the bible to stone them to death and let the father of the person be the first one to throw the first stone. What is your thoughts on this? Mine is death to those that have done this crime!

Do I feel sorry for them? Not really. I feel much more sorry for the opposite. That is, prisoners proven innocent and were put away for crimes that they did not commit.

I think also that criminals must have a proper punishment for the things they've done. I don't feel sorry for these people, because they are the ones responsible for their deeds. But on the other hand, some people do kill other people to avenge their crimes. I remember one case, I think it was in Lithuania or Latvia. Anyway, a man has killed two high rank officials who have raped and tortured his daughter. The nation of the country refused to help the police catch that man, because people thought that this man had right to kill these basterds who tortured his daughter.

Hi Biomechanoid. The man got away that killed these two that had tortured his daughter good for him. I hope they never catch him. He did what the bible says to do to those that have done these crimes. Deuteronomy 22:20-25 1st epistle John3:15 That is in the King James Bible. If someone rapes or kills it tells the father of the child to be the first one to throw the first stone. I don't blame the father of this child for standing up for his child. I hope that he never goes to jail for doing this crime.

The modern law which applied most countries in the world, does not embrace the principle of legal revenge like the law of ancient times. Imprisonment penalty was enough to be regarded as a principal form crime regret

Hi Advokatku. Your right the old law from the bible has been done away with. But lets face it if it had never been done away with this world might not have turned so evil as it is these days. God didn't want people to go around murdering HIS people. God wanted a better world without crimes. And we as humans can't see it because of greed mostly I believe.

I don't know if "sorry" is the word for what I feel for someone proven guilty. Sometimes wrong judgements are made and the innocent end up behind bars. I feel sorry for the real victims and I pray for those who harm them.

Hi Littlefranciscan. Sometimes wrong judgements are made and for those I feel sorry for. I do feel sorry for the victims. I just plain don't know what to say when the law puts the wrong person in jail.

free_man I don't feel sorry for the prisoner that was proven guilty, but I do feel sorry for the family. Someone is hurting because all the time and effort that was given to that criminal in parenting has just gone down the tubes. Even if they didn't have the best of parents, there was someone that tried to guide that person down the right path. If it was a murderous criminal, it's hard for both families. The victim's family is grieving and the criminal's family is grieving, just in a different way.
