    Victims will always demand "justice". Often, even lawyers who should know better let their emotions get the better of them and scream and pout for a penalty, when in the long run they just want vengeance and have no desire to see real "justice" done. If the CCA concedes that that the "victims" have a seat at the table then perhaps we should just fire all of the prosecutors and let the "victims" do the job for the State.
