Can we have compassion for the compassionless?

Recently where I live, a man was convicted of kidnapping, raping and killing a 9 year old girl. Though my first instincts are to bash the b******s head in, I have to ask, what can be learned from this "monster". Why did he do this? How can we stop others from doing this? Everyone I speak to is out for blood, but the mother in me sees that this sick man was once a child too. I want him to be locked away for life and studied like a lab rat but, I think I may be alone in this. Is it wrong to feel compassion for someone who showed so little compassion for a child?
