Criminals often have an unusual self-image. Embezzlers often think of their actions as "only borrowing money." Many people convicted of violent crimes rationalize their actions by some sort of denial either the victim "deserved it" and so the action was justified, or "it simply wasn't my fault." Thus, in many cases, by criminals'characterization of their situation, _______

Which one of the following most logically completes the passage?
(A) they ought to be rewarded for their actions
(B) they are perceived to be the victim of some other criminal
(C) their actions are not truly criminal
(D) the criminal justice system is inherently unfair
(E) they deserve only a light sentence for their crimes

The argument is saying Criminals say whatever they did is correct and not to be punishable.

Thus, in many cases, by criminals'characterization of their situation, _______

(A) they ought to be rewarded for their actions : No, they never award us. They said we are doing right.
(B) they are perceived to be the victim of some other criminal: No, nowhere this is mentioned.
(C) their actions are not truly criminal : Correct, they said we are doing is right so it is not a crime.
(D) the criminal justice system is inherently unfair OFS.
(E) they deserve only a light sentence for their crimes No, if they are not going crime then why any punishment.

Many people convicted of violent crimes rationalize their actions by some sort of denial either the victim "deserved it" and so the action was justified, or "it simply wasn't my fault."

(D) the criminal justice system is inherently unfair
(E) they deserve only a light sentence for their crimes

The Given argument conveys the meaning that some criminals commit the crime to either protect themselves or to stand against the injustice which according to them they are in or are facing.For this reason as that the criminals did not commit the crime wanting to hurt someone but to protect themselves and thus such cases cannot be treated as cold crime cases.
