Yes, this is part of the problem as well, repunishing people who have done their time. Any law that unnecessarily creates more criminals for the sake of financial gain is also a problem. When the government started legislating individuals every day behaviour, essentially attempting to protect individuals from themselves, we have a problem. There are many, many problems, I hope there are a few solutions.
Crime is a logical extension of the sort of behaviour that is often considered perfectly respectable in legitimate business. Robert Rice, The Business of Crime
A criminal is a person with predatory instincts who hasn't sufficient capital to form a company. Howard Scott
A society gets all the criminals it deserves. Emma Goldman
