Ultimately it is up to the victims to forgive, but what part should society play in it? How do you rate the crimes and their punishment. The Weinsteins and Cosby's are easy but there is a large range below that. The position a person plays in society also plays a part. When it comes to Kavanaugh, I made the case to my wife about how drunken 18 year olds were not known for good judgment and do some pretty cringe worthing things, not to mention a different set of standards 40 years ago. Her reply was, ya but this one wants to be a Supreme Court Justice.
