• We always find a way to vilify people who have committed crimes. We call them "mentally ill, disturbed, twisted or monsters". We compartmentalize them in this way for one reason, we are so afraid of our own internal shadow. If we can make them different from us, we don't have to admit that we all have the capability of becoming one of them. These people who commit crimes are not different from us at all. Only a handful of conditions separate those who commit crimes and those who don't. And until we are willing to face the shadow that is resident within every one of us, until we are willing to face our pain, the crimes will keep getting worse.
