LETTER: Taking issue with ‘social solutions’

-A A +A
By The Staff

In your article written by David Giuliani, Miguel Angel is quoted as stating; “It doesn’t matter how many laws you make. If you don’t have a social solution to a social problem, you are only marginalizing the people in question.”

We don’t have solutions for people who are incarcerated in prison and we know for a fact that prisons do not reform people, so should we do away with prisons and let everyone go until we decide what works? One can theorize and philosophize all day, but at whose expense?
