It's true that the word "evil" has totally has fallen out of favor, it's not
trendy at all; it's way way out of fashion, everybody on Facebook would
agree. But when somebody tortures a sweet little kid so horribly that he
wans nothing more than to die I think the word "evil" may still retain

Precisely. But unfortunately people who think it's a good idea to torture
little children are not rare, they are not an endangered species; as a
result we need a way to deal with them. I can tell you right now that
there is no prefect solution; the best we can hope for is a pretty
good solution. Pretty good.
> The tiger isn't evil. But it is dangerous, so we lock it in a cage
But the cage is pours. For everyone you point to that has been unjustly
executed I could point to a hundred that has committed murder AFTER they
were convicted for their murder; Convicted! Let me repeat that,
CONVICTED and AFTER! To my mind that is an equal failure in the law than
an innocent man being executed.
