    Sad: but at least they caught the "alleged" perp

    Man nearly beaten to death with hammer forgives his assailant... though he lost a wife and daughter to the brutal murderer, and he suffers from TBI. The original story was posted here (somewhere) but this victim is a survivor... and a very forgiving man....

    Story here

    I hope the perp gets life.... in the electric chair, or on the gurney...

    That's awful! As an outsider looking in, the death penalty is too quick and humane IMO.

    God forbid this tragedy visited me, I would be consumed with hate, retaliation and revenge.

    Holding in hate for long periods of time takes its toll on your health & well being, your personality and your relationships.

    I'm glad he's able to forgive the scumbag for his own sake, and enjoy what he has left in life.
    I think, therefore I am...

    What a strong man. His ability to forgive is super-human. Also, his understanding that forgiveness does not mean there are not consequences is rare these days.

    It takes someone of immense faith to forgive, I really don't know if I could sincerely do it considering the circumstances but my faith says we should.

    There was an incident here locally a few years ago. Guy murders his gal over drugs and he was caught, tried and convicted. The gals mother stood up in court, forgave him and handed him her daughter's Bible hoping he would find the Lord.

    I would have not done so, but I really do admire those who can forgive the most horrible things known to man.

    I too admire his ability to forgive. In the big picture I KNOW it's the right thing to do. And I know that is not a path I could walk. I know my limitations and in this situation, I guess I'm a lesser man. I hope he can enjoy the time he has left.

    The murders hit our community really hard and you can bet he will get the needle for them. Unfortunately it will take a while but he will die for his crimes as he should.

    Forgiveness can be laudable. He chooses not to "give in to evil." Great. I just hope he instills in his children a sense of circumspection, awareness and preparedness to guard against such things happening again in their future.

    Another situation where and eye for an eye punishment would be useful. I think if the eye for an eye punishments were covered on pay per view that the nations debt would be paid in less then a year.

    An accurate observation. There would be a serious deterrent factor
