Book 16 Prison teacher: [Sue]

I am an IT lecturer in a male prison and am a bit of a liberal who feels that one should never give up on a human being and that there can always be redemption. Tout comprendre, c’est tout pardonner. Some of my students have been murderers, pimps, paedophiles and major drug dealers; they can be seriously violent men and yet some are strangely likeable. Locking people up and throwing away the key can never be the answer.  I feel it is important to engage with these people even if they have committed heinous crimes.  If we don’t show some tolerance for those people who have taken a wrong turn in their lives then our society will be the poorer.
