Rationality or Religion - Reflections on the Criminal Justic

Rationality or Religion - Reflections on the Criminal Justic

Judge Brian Knox addresses the emphasis placed on a practice of insisting on 'contrition' and repentance in the context of criminal law.
As in so many areas of the criminal law we spend a lot of time blaming people. The way it works really is a throwback to concepts of original sin and Old Testament concepts of divine wrath.
Those moralistic, punitive concepts and approaches underpin the law rather than focusing on evidence based approaches to what works for the wider societal good.
