beehive.govt.nz - Government increases focus on restorative justice

beehive.govt.nz - Government increases focus on restorative justice
This must be an improvement on the antagonistic approach to much criminal law. As children we were told to say sorry and make friend s again and a surprising amount of criminal prosecution should go this way. There will be some for whom jail is sensible, but if we get some sanity in the sentencing because of restorative justice then I applaud this extra funding
