„A one-time mistake, and I am going to do 20 years.“
„I’m sorry,“ he said „That’s my baby. I loved him to death.“
No, you did not „love“ him. You are a fucking psychopath, and your „one-time mistake“ was a brainless murder. Inexcusable.
Personally I think people like him deserve to never leave jail again. There is no way to make up for the ‚mistake‘ (calling it that feels already like trampling on the family’s feelings), and the lack of insight does not make it better. I can’t stress that enough.
Faith in humanity is something easily lost. I know these are exceptions, but they’re not as rare as I’d wish them to be.
