Crime & Punishment

“The concept of "tough on criminals" is rooted in a flawed and obsolete concept of criminality. The idea was that if you make the fear of the punishment severe enough, you will dissuade criminal behavior. History has demonstrated time and again that this does not work, yet our criminal justice system still clings to it. Time to abandon 18th century criminal thinking, and move into the 21st.”
