No remorse, repeat offender, tried to actually take your life... You are good for what you're trying to do in working with him, and I'm not trying to change your mind, but do you believe he can recover to be a productive member of society after all you've seen? Do you worry at all that once he gets out early as a result of your working with him, it's possible he'll go ahead and actually kill someone?
That is my only worry. If he were to hurt someone else after his time/plea is up, it would be hard for me to live down. I had initially thought, "anyone can change". However, that change must be promoted from responsibility and time.
I am actually not a huge fan of the justice system the way it is now, but regardless I try to bide by it. Some people just never learn.
If we had Hammurabi's, "an eye for an eye" he might change his mind.
But until then, I think alot of criminals are lost in the sense(they will never learn their own lesson).
