When you say victim wishes shouldn't control results, what do you mean by that? In practice, many victims who want to retaliate against their assailant do so, even when the law doesn't allow a path to retribution. Sometimes victims are motivated to engage vigilantism by a system with overly lenient sanctions. If we create a system that removes the interests of victims from it, do you think it would increase vigilantism?

I don't say anywhere that victim wishes shouldn't control results.
