This column isn’t about crime or the justice system, albeit everything is subjective and I’m a writer, so I’m sure I could find a way to tie it back, but I’m not going to.

First, I need to say, I can be a bit of a cynic, which isn’t to say I’m not a true optimist at heart. I’ve experienced trauma and seen awful things, but I’ve also stood witness to empathy and compassion.
