Do you find it easier to judge in the abstract than it is to judge people you know? If you hear a reliable account about the conduct of some stranger is it easy to conclude they are guilty? What about people you know? Does your familiarity with them and their situation make you hesitant to offer judgment, since you know of their difficulties and extenuating circumstances? King David was eager to stand in judgment of a stranger until he realized that he was the man. Are you familiar with how merciful, accepting, and forgiving I am? I know everyone better than they know themselves. If you recognize that you do not then you can err on the side of mercy for that reason.
