Wow. A guy tries to commit suicide by parking on train tracks. Then he chooses to live. The the trains derail, and it kills 11 (or more?) people.
I feel such anger against this man. I am furious that someone would be so stupid and selfish.
They are talking about the death penalty, and though it would appease my taste for justice (or revenge at least), I cannot support it. But I'm not completely sure why. I mean, I am opposed to capital punishment; I feel like it is not allowing God to finish this man's story... it sends redemption right out the window. But perhaps that is too loose. This man has sinned against society and his neighbor. Shouldn't he pay? Can our prison systems really reform him?
I dunno. Sometimes being a social liberal or social conservative doesn't fit me right.
Innocent people dead because one man's plan failed. I wish that didn't sound so familiar.
