Good intentions, bad follow-through - JohnW
I'm really not sure what the writer's plan was here. Sure, Jade proves that she isn't a killer. She proves that she's not going to harm someone out of revenge or a personal sense of justice, but... Jade states that she can't prove the child-molesting janitor did anything to multiple girls over a period of several years, but that's just not true. She could easily enlist the aid of Batman or J'onn J'onzz and the JLA computer (seen just in the previous issue) to track down any number of these girls, who would probably be more than happy to aid the prosecution. Although, I don't know, maybe the statute of limitations has run out. But that's no reason for Jade to just let the guy to with a vague threat that she knows where she lives and can come for him at any time. All he has to do is move to a different town, and his problems are solved. Sex offenders to this all the time. Jade has just let a known child molester back into the world when she could have at least made an attempt at investigating his crimes or turning him over to the authorities. This story was probably well-intentioned, but not thought through very well.
