To my understanding, for a person in prison, parole hearings often talk about the crime involved and whether or not the person is repentant. These factors are evaluated regarding the question as to grant parole.

I don't think there is any "reverse" mechanism whereby a person like Brock who is out free is recognized as having gotten off light because he refuses to show remorse or even comprehend what he did was wrong.
Articles like this make me think there should be...
