“We Pay Too Much Attention to the Bad Guys”

May 22, 2009

Missouri executed a convicted killer this week.  It drew protests from those against the death penalty and those who said the killer changed and became a new, good man. 

Some lady on the news, I’m not sure who, I think some relation or friend of the victim, said something like, “We pay too much attention to the bad guys.  We look at their lives and see what they’ve done, see if they’ve changed or what might have caused them to kill someone, but we hardly pay attention to their victims or how different the lives of the victim’s families and friends are now.”

She made a great point.
