Sir: I am cynical about the increasing trend for the media to approach the victims of a crime or their relatives after a trial and ask them if they are happy with the sentence. Justice is there to protect society, not for revenge. If you ask the victims' views maybe you should also ask the criminal. One will say the sentence is too light, the other too severe; neither is relevant.
