Seems it started in the ’60s, we let shrinks start calling evil by some other name that they invented to explain why they thought people did horrible things. And we have let them get away with it ever since.
They get monsters off that do things like kill their own children, rape and murder, and as in the Colorado shooting, they say those people have a mental defect.
It’s called “evil” and we refuse to confront evil and make it pay for the terror and heartbreak it causes.
There are people on death row that have been there for over 20 years. We called Hitler, Osama, Saddam, all evil and we put them to death, and yet we let doctors keep us from punishing evil as it should be punished.
The people whose lives have been destroyed by evil people still live in pain and anger every day, yet we say to put a monster to death is violating his rights, so in many states we abolish the death penalty.
Instead, these monsters live on in what they see as fame, they have a life in prison with computers, television, write letters have visitors, etc. While the loved ones who lost someone precious to them can only visit a gravesite, and put out flowers.
Then comes the blame for the gun, if the guns were all gone they would just go on the Internet and go to the site that shows you how to build a bomb, then all 71 would have died in Colorado.
We don’t even have the courage to arrest the people and shut down the sites that tell you how to make an I.E.D. Unbelievable!
We let civil rights advocates use “freedom” of speech to defend these people.
Until we start making evil pay for its deeds, we will have more of these things happen.
God help us for not doing what is right — punishing evil.
