This one could've gone in the sports and crime categories.
Anyway, what is the purpose of prison?
Think hard. Seems simple, I know.
But I heard a fascinating debate about this earlier this evening on ESPN's E:60 show, where I learned that former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has been playing football on his prison team.
The tidbit on E:60 led to a brief debate on prison? Punishment, rehab, both? Other? Or is the answer on a sliding scale?
I have an opinion. But before I share it I want your thoughts on it. And whatever answer you give, include an explanation, a "why," if you will.
