Sam got to a safe location away from the incident where he was assulted by Mr. Choke and threatened with his life by Mr. V and called police as soon as possible. What Sam called in was wrong and a crime. Its called false police report. Prove that Sam knew a mans arm was severed at the time off the incident. If Sam would have in fact not been human and had not been affected to react to seeing an arm, maybe he would have waited for police instead of "Freaking Out".
So if that was the case, who would be at fault? Would Mr. Choke come under more fire as he did in the civil lawsuit of being responsible? Would Mr V have been disgraced as a drunk who faced an uncertain fate on his military record for such stunt devil acts? Mr Choke is free and clear, Mr V was given a medical discharge with benefits for a drunken act of his own doing. No one told Mr. V to jump on the side of a moving vehicle.
I think what the article is trying to portrait is that when does a consequence ever end? The answer is never. Even after sentencing and beyond the sentence itself. Some say, "till justice is served..". Well as citizens we entrust upon the judicial system to determine that, but understand the sentence isn't the only punishment a criminal receives. This idea of "just desserts" is arbitrary, as it goes on to hunt the lives of criminals to the point where the criminal can become the victim as well. Even in crimes less severe or committed as a juvenile.
I think Sam has paid for this mistake and will continue to pay for the actions of not only his, but of all three involved in this case. Rightfully so?
