I have to agree with you there that the crime of destroying all those innocent lives spanning the nine realms Loki was responsible for snuffing cannot be erased. As I said Loki's innocence is lost forever and he can try to redeem himself but the fact of the matter is that many men, women and children have perished and many more will perish in the future because of his petulant acts.
