Under estimation of a potential threat is deadly. You have to take the promises of the felon seriously. As the felon felt the noose tightening around his neck, he knew he had one chance to break free and he took it. This is a problem we either have had or will have someday. Feeling sorry for someone, although heart felt, can be deadly.
