Even a villain is created "in Gd's image"


"Leaving the body of an executed criminal exposed is degrading to the King, for Man is made in His image, and Israel are his children.

"This may be compared to twins who resemble each other, and one becomes king while the other is caught for banditry and hanged. All who see him say, "The king is hanged.""

(Rashi to Devarim 21:23)
