The fifteenth of 15 criticisms I see about forgiveness is this:  Forgiveness will lead to the opening of every jail cell door and letting out dangerous criminals.  Therefore, forgiveness is a danger to society.

This argument confuses forgiveness and legal pardon.  A person can forgive and see that it is important that a person, who remains a danger to society, stays in a correctional institution.
