Question: Why didn't Tim Robbins tell Penn FROM THE BEGINNING that he killed a pedophile not his daughter? Penn's character was a gangster from the old days, so he would have known what to do and not to.

Chosen answer: He was afraid to admit he'd murdered someone. And since he was innocent about the daughter he assumed the real killer would be found. He also assumed nobody would believe him, which they didn't.

Jason Hoffman

Answer: He killed him because he believed that the pedophile was a evil and didn't want anyone to go threw what he went threw as a kid. So he saved the boy and killed the pedophile.He said they were vampires and werewolves remember the conversation he was having with his wife.

Answer: Dave kills the pedophile because he sees himself in him. His experience as a child has led him to have thoughts about harming children himself. He would rather die than have anyone know the shame of these secret thoughts.
