Do you know it's evil ? It seems readily apparent, doesn't it? The entire world is just a collection of evil things doing even more evil things. Oh sure, sometimes the be-good things happen, but in truth that's really just a trick for you to keep going on and on through this terrible evil world.
You'll think about how during all its existence humanity has been cursed with this evil, and then you'll think about how the world can be better - I just got to keep going through it. But now it never gets better - there is awfulness and terribleness and just evil. So anyways, Sheriff Joe got pardoned.
