This could never be the case if the sin was committed by man A. That said, while man A does the just thing and seeks absolution for his sin and amends his life, then he justly receives the reward of heaven if he dies in a state of grace. Man B, while not at fault for man A's sin, still has his own sins to seek absolution for and amend his own life. Clearly, since he winds up in hell, he committed some unremitted mortal sin in his life and did not repent of it before death. Therefore, his condemnation to hell is a just act because he still committed some sin between the scenario you've created and his death.

Regardless of the scenario. Your last remark, which I will not even quote, is blasphemy, and you need to seek out confession.

I'm not saying Man B is somehow guilty of Man A's sin.  What I mean is, when we commit sins against others, if we truly repent, God forgives us, regardless of if we are able to make restitution or not.  Sometimes we can, sometimes we can't.  Let's say Man A murdered Man B's daughter.  That can't ever be undone.  Even in the next life, the effects of that life taken can never, ever be undone.  True, perfect justice would demand that if restitution cannot be made, Man A's sin cannot be forgiven.  That it is possible for him to be forgiven, to be released from all debt, while Man B must bear the suffering of a lost child, and the daughter must bear the suffering of a life cut short, is unjust to them, and tremendously merciful to Man A.
