I think that the editors of the Chronicle and the people at John Jay who hired this thug should be taken out and horsewhipped.Luckily, the woman responsible for hiring this thug stands by me.
In more mistaken criticism, somebody from the absurd we-have-2.3-million-prisoners-because-we-have-more-freedom camp says:
Moskos’s argument is ethically offensive... One is left with the suspicion that this just the latest in a long, long chain of progressive arguments...for not punishing criminals at all.... Moskos tips us off with this section, which is typical of the breed. [emphasis added]Now I can't criticize a guy for not reading my book yet (because it's not out), but it's curious how he could jump to so many conclusions and be so wrong. I guess he's mistaken about "my breed," whatever that means.
