Don't Publish the Book

In 1997, a 14-year-old boy killed two elementary school girl and boy, and injured three other students in Kobe. The boy did not get any severe punishment because he was too young to be punished and had mental problems. He got eight years of psychiatric treatment in some juvenile training schools. He became free in 2004. 
Now, he is about to publish a book about his murders or something. A father of a victims strongly opposed the publishing of the book. The father said that the book might hurt the victims and their families. He said he could not understand why he can do so. 
It's obvious that the book can do nothing but hurt many people. The killer never feel for others. That kind of person does exist. If he has compassion for others, he can't publish such a book. The publisher should withdraw the book immediately.
