On a recent apology by the British Government for Alan Turing's treatment (and other homosexual men of the time) who were either imprisoned or given oestrogen injections because of their sexual oreintation:
"1. Turing knowingly engages in criminal behavior.
2. He's caught.
3. He's punished.
4. He doesn't like being punished so he kills himself.
5. The British government owes him an apology.
It's the jump to (5) that I don't follow"
