""I don't really care whether people are punished for what they did fifteen years ago, as long as they're in a position where they cannot do it again. I do desperately want to know why they did what they did, so we can make sure it does not happen again.""
Surely the best way to make sure it doesn't happen again is to bring those who covered it up to justice Joe.
Some of the people who committed these crimes have not been put into a position where they cannot again offend, and those who covered up for them are certainly able to do it again, unless we deal with their crimes as we should already have done.
Would you make the above statement in relation to murderers, armed robbers, muggers or burglars?......I think not!!
