ABSTRACT
Examines the original rationale for going soft on crime, that the old moralistic, black and white, good and evil model of punishment supposedly didn't work. However, despite all the counseling, paroling and sympathizing and 15 years of increasingly stringent gun controls in Canada, there are more and worse criminals today. Why we should discriminate between capital crimes, which should bring the death penalty, and lesser crimes, which should bring flogging or incarceration.
