You will always see a wrong doer/criminal/psycho doing something impressive right before and after doing something sneaky, so that nobody believes the victim or the consequences of the exposure of reality can be softened. It does not happen because the culprit has changed, it happens just to avoid the feelings of shame and punishment. It does not happen because the wrong was done in innocense, it happens because the culprit is clever and evil to put a veil on everything or anything wrong done to others.
Sorry for those who cannot see reality clearly,
Sorry for those who believe the glitters put over shit.
Softening up or having empathy for the culprit is indeed one of the ways to create injustice against the victim.
Keeping your eyes closed to the sickness will not vanish the sickness,
it always needs some medicine to be cured,
and unrecognized sickness can kill,
Both the sick one and many other innocent ones in the end if left uncured.
