“One of the most pressing issues in cur­rent de­bates on criminal justice con­cerns the short­com­ings of imprison­ment. Prison environ­ments can have traumatizing effects on con­fined people. Long prison sentences have no positive impact on relapses on criminal be­hav­ior. Such drawbacks clearly reflect an insti­tu­tional and societal failure to fulfill the individual justice and public safety goals of legal punish­ment.”
