I agree wholeheartedly. It seems that in some form or another the public's anxiety has been exploited in order for one group or politican to increase their own power by being "tough on crime".
I think the questions we need to ask ourselves are simple: Is our current justice system reflecting our moral priorities--is this really how we want to treat people?--and is it reflecting our economic priorities--do we really want to spend all this money on locking people up?
