Deuteronomy 16:20 (NIV) Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.
Why should small-time embezzlers, bad-check writers, and petty burglars be in prison when they ought to be working to pay back those they have wronged, benefiting both the victim and society? That's the road to real justice. —Cal Thomas
