I also agree about the whole " I feel bad, please lower my sentence."
I also disagree with the "found Jesus in Jail" crap. The number of people who "found Jesus" in Prison and actually stayed clean when they got out... whom I've actually known... I can count ON ONE HAND... and have fingers left over on the same hand to open the door when I get home from the investigation.
Question I ask is this. DID YOU TURN YOURSELF IN?! Did you do it right away or after the cops knocked on your door or after you spent all the money on booze and whores? If you had to be caught, you only feel bad that you got caught, or you're faking it. The real evil is a system that allows scumbags to get away, while destroying people who see the system itself as the evil it is. Scumbags who get caught for dozens of crimes against non government people and non government property, get out in a year. Guys who looked at a cop wrong... get shafted!! So here I'm with RVM.
Where I kind of disagree its that when you commit evil for "the good of the people" its actually two options. Either you're a TRUE BELIEVER, and you're on the same scale as every terrorist who suicide bombed a place... or you're a heinous bastard using the appearance of TRUE BELIEF to sucker all the gullible morons among the common plebes to assault and mob rule the one outstanding quality individual amongst them whom you, as a government official, would be most likely to target.
