ditto for the defense attempt to mitigate their client’s crimes by claiming their client was abused as a child.
this should be deemed an AGGRAVATING FACTOR – not a mitigating one or a justification.
if you were victimized, then you should know better than to victimize other people.
being a bully, a rapist, an abuser does not make you powerful or bigger or important.
and justifying being a bully, rapist, abuser with Jesus or other religious claims
just demonstrates that religion poisons everything and is the leading cause of evil in the world
