Ziggi Ivan Santini's curator insight, September 3, 2013 3:05 PM

"The reality in the US today is that prison is not for rehabilitation, it is for profit". It is no wonder that the U.S. crime prevention strategy does not seem to bear fruit. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. One shouldn't expect good results, when the fundamental values of the nation prioritize capital over compassion.

Release of notorious child killer Jon Venables prompts anger in Britain

Release of notorious child killer Jon Venables prompts anger in Britain | up2-21 | Scoop.it
One of Britain's youngest child killers, whose crime haunted Britain when it was captured on security cameras, has been paroled for a second time - prompting fury from his victim’s parents.
up2-21's insight:

The way some people act sometimes is beyond belief. They act before they think. This child was what 10 years old, when he and another boy committed this atrocity, but they served their time, and should be given a second chance. It seems that we hold out children to a higher standard then we do adults, and it should be the other way around.
