London Bridge attack: Prisoner who confronted terrorist is not a hero, say family of the woman he murdered
That someone has done something bad is this thing over here. That someone has done something good, or brave, or heroic, is this other thing over there.
Eric Gill really was rather good at carving despite his rape of the family dog. Michael Jackson cut some pretty mean tunes whatever happened at Neverland. Certain VC winners have been less than wondrous in the round and yet still heroes.
Yes, agreed, this rather goes against the current mores which say that if anyone ever uttered a single waycist sentiment then their entire lives were in vain. Yet it is still true, it is possible for a human to be more than one thing, both a hero and a villain for example.
