Empathy is a virtue, but it should not be a guiding judicial principle. Gary Bauer
For sake of argument, let's say someone robbed banks and evaded the law for 5, 10, 15, even 25 years.
Now identified but dead, they "willed" the money to their children (knowledge of the crimes irrelevant).
Does law (and order) say, "Well, our bad, you can go ahead and keep the money. Have a great life!"?
As six-word short story ...
Without law enforcement, disorder fosters disorder.
Though justice is not completely void empathy.
Continue to march, Mr. President.
