I might be thinking of it in terms of the wrong person. I didn't feel at all sorry for that person. My knowledge of him was limited to that one aspect of him. I was in some ways an outspoken and assertive child, but in other ways I was passive and a perfect target. He represents the latter. And he became a symbol in my mind of all sorts of things.

I suppose if I knew him in some other context, I might feel sorrier for him, and be glad that someone would be treating him. In fact, over my life I have discovered that a couple of acquaintances have been arrested for things even worse, but because I knew them elsewhere, I was able to see them differently and retain compassion for them.

I suppose I'm looking at this through a distorted lens. Maybe after I talk to him, he'll resume his normal aspect in my mind.
