@KaBoom - I disagree. I think they should have punished the people who committed crimes during Apartheid. Imagine if a murderer could get out their jail sentence by simply telling the truth about their crime? That doesn't sound very reasonable, does it?
I mean, the idea of rebuilding and moving on sounds great and all. Very nice and touchy-feely. But that doesn't change the fact that crimes were committed. Imagine if you were a victim of one of those crimes. I think I would want the criminals punished for sure.
