InOBU BS: The concept of 'punishment' (84* d) RE: BS: The concept of 'punishment' 23 Jan 11


Silas, dear fellow...

Let me suggest a good book, fast read, enjoyable, and then we can take this up again...

You may have seen the film, Catch Me if you Can... about the young forger and imposter who passed himself off as a pilot while kitting millions of dollars in checks. (He also impersonated a doctor, lawyer - prosicutor believe it or not - and an FBI agent.)

The autobiography by Frank Abignale http://www.amazon.com/Catch-Me-If-You-Can/dp/0767905385 - has a lot left out of the film including his compairison between the US Frech and Sweedish criminal justice system from his first hand experience.

It costs around $10 USD... and I would be interested in your thoughts on punishment after reading it...

All the best
Lorcan
