Man responsible for Gangnam murder says, 'I don't regret it'

Kim, the perpetrator responsible for the senseless Gangnam murder, stated that he doesn't regret his crime. 


During the first trial, Kim was sentenced to 30 years in prison. On December 15, during the trial at the court of appeals, the judge gave Kim a chance to speak for himself, and Kim said, "I don't feel repentant or regretful," while laughing a little bit. 


He then said, "But I feel sorry for the girl who died because of my crime," not making much sense. 


During the trial, the prosecution stated, "The defendant prepared a detailed crime and viciously murdered a young woman who was just starting her life in our society. However, he is still not apologizing for his crime and he is not saying sorry to the family of the victim."

The prosecution also emphasized, "The defendant does not acknowledge his own mental instability and demonstrates hatred and aggressiveness towards women, and therefore has a high risk of committing a similar crime again. He should be separated from the society by being sentenced to life in prison." 


The defendant's attorney argued, "There is no excuse for his crime. However, the defendant suffers from a mental illness and was unable to make sound judgments; he does not even know what he is saying right now," and pleaded for a light sentence. 


The verdict of the appeals trial will be handed down on January 12.

    So he says he's sorry, but he doesn't regret it? That makes absolutely no sense.

    Mental illness forever used as a cover up for criminals. It's such a disrespect to people who actually struggle with the conditions as civilized humans.

    Lock him up and forget all about him, see if anyone 'feels sorry' for him.

    Ah, classical. Controversial comments, so you seem of unsound mind and have a lighter sentence

    The judicial system is so unfair towards its victims. For being a modern society we keep allowing injustices to go unpunished and leave victims without having the help and justice they deserved. This world makes me sad. So easily to kill and rape and get away with it.

    What is this preoccupation with apologies? Why should blabbering an apology, bowing, and playing charades with claims of repentance have any bearing on sentencing for violent crimes? Is the victim less dead, raped, or assaulted because the subhuman filth apologizes and bows? How many empty words and bowing can equal the scale when a life is taken or forever ruined? For minor offenses and misdemeanors, perhaps sincere contrition should count for something, but not when it comes to murder, rape, or other violent crimes.
