    No, I do not wish to engage in a debate because it will not be fruitful. I will not change your obviously anti-libertarian viewpoints, nor will you change mine.

    Don't mistake simple consequence with your appeal to emotion "revenge" statement... you know better than that. Also, psychological damage can seriously impair her judgment regarding his crime. Ethics can and do dictate that the simple act of breaking a law should see the law breaker face the consequence no matter what, even if the victim does not want it and even if the law breaker reforms their ways... it matters not, the law was broken and the consequence must be adhered to.

    ...And it is in my opinion that I find that line of thinking ridiculous.

    It is ridiculous to think of a consequence as reasonable? You are claiming that a consequence must be revenge then? Huh?

    You think that ethics are ridiculous as well? Seriously? WTF?

    Lastly, you think that psychological damage to victims in no way impairs their reasoning or impartial outlook?

    Ummm... I have no idea what to say, I am simply shocked that you would say such a thing. Astounded really....

    What do you mean why? I'm stating that because a victim can be coerced is the reason that they cannot get the charges dropped. Once the state has control only the state can drop the charges because a victim can be coerced into dropping the charges.

    I don't seek revenge on anyones behalf. I seek justice.

    "Justice?" The main problem with nebulous and subjective terms like "Justice" is that there is no right or wrong definition. Justice is merely a laughable human construct designed to give man the illusion that he can play God.

    Certainly I agree that if she hadn't requested that the sentence be dropped that he should go to jail, but it seems silly to send someone to jail for raping someone who has requested that he not be sent to jail.

    so justice should be circumvented because the wealthy offender can pay off hte victim?

    is this really the world you want to live in?
    well he raped me, but $1,000,000 does ease the suffering
