    Forgiveness is good, time for justice now.

    DNA testing is amazing. Crimes have been solved, loved ones identified. It is becoming more and more difficult for criminals to avoid the consequences of their crimes.

    Forgiveness for some is hard in most cases, but in this case unthinkable, but when the Lord lives in the heart of a person, He makes it possible. In fact, if we want Him to forgive us, we must forgive others.
    Thanks for the article. Christ died for our sins, on the cross of Calvary. Today we remember that event with fondness. As he hung on the cross, He asked His Father to forgive those who were killing Him.
    Christ even died for this person who raped and killed the 11-year old. My prayer is that he can find in himself to ask Christ for that forgiveness.

    I can't comprehend how the mother could forgive this man but I can understand why. Forgiveness releases a burden on the person doing the forgiving. If the mother understands that fact then it would explain why she would forgive him but again - how she could manage to do it is beyond my comprehension.

    "DeCaria sentenced Seamons to serve terms of one to 15 years and five years to life at the same time for the two charges. The terms will also run concurrently with a prison term Seamons has been serving in Idaho for a 2007 kidnapping conviction."

    Here we have someone who raped and killed a young girl when he was 15 and continues a life of crime culminating in his conviction for kidnapping in 2007. It was that conviction which, presumably, places his DNA in the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) database, resulting, finally, in his conviction for this heinous crime.

    Like the judge, I cannot understand how or why anyone would "forgive" this....person.
