Would you be friends with a murderer?

Let's say someone you know was convicted of some horrible crime. Say, they were cut off in traffic, lost in, and beat the living hell out of someone. Or, they come home, find their spouse cheating on them, and kill him. Or date rape someone. Would you still be able to be friends with that person?

I was thinking about when I saw this.

This is a rape checklist. Basically, I think it's trying to get people to think about how women are treated in society.

Most of them make sense, but some of them (say, 46 and 47) don't seem all that fair to me
