Please allow me to zoom in on your statement in order to piggy back on it to elaborate on my differing point of view.
I can sympathize with the “an eye for an eye” attitude on an emotional level. With wanting to exterminate a person who has done something so atrocious it’s hard to comprehend. With the impulse that a perpetrator must suffer. As they made their victims and their families suffer so terribly.
Yet “that” still is a human being, and to me, a civilized society ought not to dehumanize. Not even offenders of atrocious crimes. Nor should a penal and judicial system in any way, shape or form be based on the idea that sentencing and incarceration are a form of revenge.
