I have actual experience of dealing with people who have suffered serious injuries as a result of the actions of others and I can guarantee you that, to a man, their primary concern has been "how the hell am I going to survive/pay my mortgage/look after my kids" rather than "how much jail time is the person who did this going to serve"
That is not to say that they dont get angry, or that they dont want the person to be punished, but to suggest that punishment of the perpatrator is more important to them than compensation is idiotic.
Which is not surprising i suppose, given the person suggesting it
