62. IMO, it absolutely does excuse them from rational thought and compassion
It's human nature not to act with rational thought when it comes to these sorts of situations. Vengeance is a part of human nature and I'm not going to fault these people for something they pretty much can't control.

I am, however, going to fault the prosecutors who play off of this irrational nature to score political points. The family is excused from rational thought and compassion. The justice system is NOT.
