CAN PRISONS REALLY PROVIDE US WITH THE PROTECTION THAT WE CRAVE?
Many Canadians have lost faith in the prison system. It is supposed to deter people from committing crimes, rehabilitate criminals and protect the public by keeping dangerous offenders off the streets. But Canada has been steadily building more and more prisons over the years to accommodate the ever-increasing number of citizens who have apparently not been deterred.
Canadians are afraid of violent crime--perhaps more so now than ever before--and still look to the prison system for protection. But where is our headlong flight from violent crime leading? From the Trade Paperback edition.
