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.

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.
