“Sorry for shooting you in the head”
Wow, this story over at the Chronicle is incredible. An inmate was erroneously released and proceeded to find the person he shot in the head….to say “I’m sorry”. Makes me wonder about the real effect of serving time. Should there be more of an emphasis on rehabilitation versus just locking up the bad guys? I think so. Not necessarily every convict can be rehabilitated. But it seems this guy was temporarily released and wanted to make amends. Large cities like Houston would seem to benefit from more rehabilitative programs and more effort in that direction. Is this guy an example of how “correctional facilities” really are correcting behavior? I doubt it. Seems like this guy is more of an exception. What do you think?
