WHY CARRY?  BECAUSE DENIAL HAS NO SURVIVAL VALUE:  Suspect nearly kills rape victim’s entire family

There is evil in the world.  Denying the existence of evil is a fool’s game. Denial has no survival value, right? Most people are good people.  A few are ethically, morally, otherwise challenged.  And then there are some who are sociopaths (or psychopaths). The only thing that stops evil men are good guys with...
