I am really not sure how to address this issue from a believers standpoint. I already know how to feel as an officer.
On August 23, 2003, while in protective custody at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, ordained Priest and suspected multiple-child molester John J Geoghan was strangled and stomped to death in his cell by Joseph Druce, a self admitted white supremacist and murderer.
How do you treat, both intellectually and emotionally, incidents where evil preys on evil? I know how I want to feel, but is it right? The fallen are fallen and the lost are lost and once their life is extinguished a man’s chance for redemption through Christ is lost. But then both their actions/decisions brought them to this place. The following is the feed of the outside of the cell during this incident.
Psalm 7:13-15 13 He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows. 14 He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. 15 He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made.
