* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: The nun's rapists. Even considering the fact that the nun forgives them, the Lieutenant smoking drugs with them and then putting them on a bus for parts unknown doesn't seem like ''that'' much of a punishment.]]
** [[spoiler: And the Lieutenant gave them the cigar box with three grand in it]].
*** [[spoiler: Which is kind of the point of the movie. Like the lieutenant himself, they've done something so horrible, so repulsive, that you can't possibly imagine them still being deserving of mercy, but they're shown it regardless.]]
**** [[spoiler: What's even scarier, though, is the fact that, unlike the Lieutenant, they may not have learned anything. [[FridgeHorror Once they get a fresh start in a new city with three grand, there's nothing stopping them from just running wild and committing even MORE rapes]].]]
***** [[spoiler: It's worse. I have recently saw the movie and it's 30 GRAND, not 3...]]
