Crime, Punishment and Golf Lessons?

Friday, April 6, 2012

Jail GolfWhen someone commits a crime, there is a general sense by most that the person needs to be held accountable for their actions and do their time.  In fact, that is what incarceration is supposed to address, accountability through punishment and ultimately rehabilitation. 

So if you start with that premise, why is a convicted jewelry thief living it up in Catalina Island's "vacation-like" jail, giving golf lessons to a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Captain.  I don’t know about you but this doesn't sound like punishment or rehabilitation to me.  But then again, who am I to judge...I am just a tax payer flipping the bill for a convicted thief to live it up on a tropical island and give golf lessons. 

How does this make you feel?
