From the article that Nobbynobs put link to:

The three members of the parole board panel pointed out that he had had more than 200 escorted, temporary absences without incident and that he had shown remorse and empathy.

I think this is something to make difference. This person is reported he have 'shown remorse and empathy'. None my abusers have shown that at all. So for why would I forgive someone who have not shown that they would not just do it again, to me or another?
