“Fit the Crime – I” / Memorable Fancies #4191

[“The moral basis of a state’s permission to burden criminal wrongdoers with punishment does not license its morally righteous condemnation of them.” – Erin I. Kelly, The Limits of Blame: Rethinking Punishment and Responsibility]

       True justice is objective and transactional, without the emotional baggage that blame entails, which just validates the malefactor and encourages him to commit new crimes.

       Do the crime, serve the time or pay the fine. That heals, with nothing left over.
