An amazing cartoon on modern prison realities

With never-ending thanks to Howard Bashman for this tip, I highly encourage everyone interested in modern sentencing dynamics to check out "Thanks For Toughin'," an animated cartoon comically addressing current sentencing and prison realities.

The Shiv blames recidivism on "tough" sentencing laws, which somehow lead to fewer rehabilitation programs. I'm not sure I buy it. The Shiv apparently believes in rehabilitation but not deterrence. I'd suggest that our helium-tongued friend has it backward.

I can't understand why this is "amazing," but Posner and the 8th Circuit get mostly scorn from this blog.

When Posner and the Eighth Circuit do their work in cartoon form, I'll call their efforts amazing, too. Also, I praise Judge Posner work when I think it merits praise. See, e.g., my recent posts on "More fine and fun Booker work from Judge Posner."

Mr. Fiore's cartoons touch on a lot of issues. Interesting stuff...
