Let Trayvon's killer be?: Prison should be last resort because of the harm it causes society
In our version of justice in America, we seek far more than righting the wrong. We seek that the perpetrator serves their time, is thrown behind bars, pays for what he or she did.
In short, we like to see the perp suffer.
We seek revenge.
