This paragraph best supports the statement that victims of a crime should

A learn to forgive their offenders.

B have the right to confront their offenders.

C learn the art of mediation.

D insist that their offenders be punished.

E have the right to impose a sentence on their offenders.

ANS:B - have the right to confront their offenders.
