Zachary, I understand where you are coming from and no, it does not make the victim any less dead or any less robbed, raped, or anything else. However, think about it this way. Have you ever done anything you regretted later on in life because you weren't fully aware of the repercussions and consequences of your actions at the time you committed the act? At the time you did it, you weren't aware that there was possibly a better, more logical, more productive, and or more ethical way of accomplishing the same goal. As humans, I think we all do better when we know better. I suspect that if we didn't, we would still be cooking outside over an open flame, and nothing new would ever get invented.

Think about it this way...Have you ever had an epiphany???
