The thing is we shouldn't be talking sympathy.

Sympathy, empathy, pity... this are all subjective emotional constructs that don't really have a place in passionless legal system.

I don't have sympathy for the two girls that did the killing but that doesn't matter. I'm not basing my opinion on emotional turmoil.

We can have a concept of justice without having to bring this into it.

Justice being something more then just emotional satisfaction is one of those things we gave up to live in a society ruled by law.

I'm the farthest thing from a Bleeding Heart this board has. I'm not defending the two girls. I'm defending the system because it is more important then any one single case.
