“All people long for justice, but we feel horrible when those who have created harm go unpunished”. We are of two minds about revenge: we talk about it and joke about it, enjoy movies about the hero seeking revenge, but feel conflicted about actually doing it ourselves. Our courts offer victims very little solace. Victims are rarely allowed to make statements in court and plea-bargaining subverts any possibility of the victim feeling like justice was served. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with THANE ROSENBAUM. He is the John Whelan Distinguished Lecturer at Fordam Law School and directs the Forum on Law, Culture and Society. His new powerful book is titled PAYBACK: THE CASE FOR REVENGE and it may change how you think about revenge and justice.
