Thanks for answering! I personally don't think it's right to classify people as "being evil" or "being innocent", and that most people are a mixture of both. People who commit bad things have a warped sense of what is "right" or that not getting caught makes an action ok to do. Others I believe are forced by some uncontrollable impulse (sexual or otherwise) or a mental instability.
I just think that being an evil person isn't something that someone can be, and that many people who do evil things can also contribute greatly to society in some way (e.g Roman Polanski, Bill Cosby, and possibly Michael Jackson).
I'm not saying that these people shouldn't be held accountable for what they did, but rather we should rework how we view criminals, and maybe in doing so we can reduce crime much more effectively than we have in the past.

At the time, were you aware that what you did is wrong/unlawful? If so what led you to commit those actions? Was it out of impulse or of convincing yourself (at the time) that you wouldn't get caught or that it was right anyway?
