"Tell them, ‘As sure as I am the living God, I take no pleasure from
the death of the wicked. I want the wicked to change their ways and
live. Turn your life around! Reverse your evil ways! Why die, Israel?’ Ezekiel 33:11 (TM)
Justice that does not hold evil accountable and punish it accordingly is no justice at all. A just judge may have a heart full of compassion, but cannot allow evil to go unpunished.
