Graphic scholarship critiquing deterrence theory

Trall080107_2 A kind reader sent along this picture (and this link to a larger version) from the cartoonist Ted Rall, which provides a cogent critique of classic deterrence theory.  Of course, deterrence theory has more to it than this cartoon suggests, but I am still moved to describe the cartoon as a great form of graphic scholarship on theories of punishment.
