No More Therapy For Violent Criminals

 

Anger management classes for convicted violent offenders are now facing the axe following an inquiry into the homicide of John Monckton. The conclusion to stop anger management comes as a set back as the classes were deemed therapeutic.

Hanson, 25, killed Monckton, the former having convinced a parole board that he was ready for release after completing an anger course. Home Office directives state that the course makes offenders worse off, aiding them to manipulate the system

A Home Office spokesman said, “Anger management courses were effective at teaching self-management techniques. However, some offenders did not engage in violent behaviour because of anger.”

  Sad really  
 
One bad apple spoils the barrel.
I'm sure for some people this would help a lot as it puts things into perspective, but there is always the one exception who ruins it for the rest.

  have to agree with them  
 
Keep in mind that there is a reason these people are in prison. They've already hurt someone, many of them would gladly do it again. Violent criminals can rarely be rehabilitated, it's not worth risking innocent lives on the chance that these people may possibly be able to run around without hurting anyone.
