"The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons." - Fyodor Dostoevsky.

“The mood and temper of the public in regard to the treatment of crime and criminals is one of the most unfailing tests of the civilisation of any country." - Winston Churchill

The above observations ever hold true.

In Christian terms, treatment of domestic enemies (criminals) should evoke "love": a constant move to make the enemy a friend.

The current government under Harper consistently points in the opposite direction, namely of "enemizing the other", not embracing the enemy (while holding the criminal responsible for righting harms done).

Canadian crime policy has lost its Christian way.
