14. Yeah, maybe they too can have the opportunity to live out full blown emotional
illness such as we see in Mark Klaus. Each time he's asked to appear as a consultant, you can see him reliving the anger he has for Polly's killer. It's like "a retribution fix" for him ... and it is sad.

People need to love one another, grieve fully and then get on with life.

Our role, if we choose to be humanitarians, is not VENGEANCE and RETRIBUTION ... who would we make "our deciders" then? :shrug:
