    The biggest problem is that people still look at prisons as a way to punish as though that will achieve anything. The crime will still have been committed with all it’s consequences and if you don’t rehabilitate the criminal they will just do it again.

    This is a thought crime. I never thought such a thing could exist but here it is. Send Rebecca Roache to jail!

    Wow. Roache appears to be more than a little sadistic. Mentally ill this one!

    This is a pretty distorting report of the Aeon interview! I don’t endorse any of the punishments discussed, nor am I a strong retributivist. The difference between endorsing an idea and ethically evaluating it has become obscured in much of the media coverage of this. I wrote a blog post clarifying my views here: http://rebeccaroache.weebly.com/1/post/2014/03/the-future-of-punishment-a-clarification.html
