I was watching Taboo last night and found this to be the greatest thing I have heard in a LONG time. A Texas Judge was sentencing people to what have been dubbed "shame punishments" where they were required to wear placards or carry signs stating what their crimes were along the highway as a part of their probation. He said the point is to make an impact on the person & the community and for the victims that will last...
According to the stats they quoted on the show, out of the more than 600 people he has sentenced this way less than 11% had re-offended, compared to an average of 34% of those who had committed similar crimes and were sentenced traditionally (prison & regular probation).
What do you think?
