Some people, mostly Christians, tell others that they need to forgive people even though the offending party is not at all sorry for the offense they committed against them.
I do not personally feel the need to forgive a person who will likely victimize me again or is not sorry for what they did. This includes not taking responsibility for the damages they have done.
My question is why should a person forgive the unrepentant?

Forgivness is such a powerful gift. It sets YOU free from hate anger bitterness taking revenge. Example my sister stole from me and will not admit it i know it was her 110% I forgave her because I needed to let go of the baggage that came with me being upset with her. Now do i trust her around my money? No i learned shes steals and lies but i forgave her because its money. Now if someone killed my kid that would be something i dont know if i could forgive but i think thats they only thing that i couldnt forgive for.
