haha, not zactly what i was thinking. like reforming them in some fashion, instead of just crackign their head and sending them back out to commit more crimes

i'm thinking so. tho, this reminds me of an idea i read about once, in an editorial or something: politicians should be paid more, to reduce the temptation to accept bribes.
as dilbert pointed out, by this theory criminals aren't bad, they're underpaid.

dilbert may be right about the criminals. i'm not sure about politicians being underpaid though. at least not where i live. there has never been once bribing scandal here. of course you'd have to bribe a lot of politicians here to get what you want.
