The idea that murder victims families are best served by continuing the cycle of violence is something that I consider to be not only a lie, but criminally negligent. You lie to victims families when you tell them theyre going to receive closure if they participate in the process and witness the execution of a human being.

Around 1810, the theme of justice emerged in opera.
