One comment on “Shaming versus Prison

  1. Shame was already tried. There are liberals out there that insisted that shaming was “crual and unusual punishment” though. They convinced a jury that it was against Constitutional Rights, forgetting that rights are given up when you do something wrong.

    There is another alternative that has hit the media. It’s to build a secured TOWN instead of a prison. The focus would be on EDUCATION instead of on punishment. Inmates would stay in dorm rooms instead of cells. The town would have it’s own Trade Tech and University. With a higher education, the recidivism rate would plummet.

    There’s a group starting up who are interested in investing in just such an alternative. You can read the blog at if you’re interested.
