BOOK EXTRACT: Beyond Crime: No child is born a criminal — the view from the broken world behind the prison walls

So it makes little sense to absolve ourselves of any responsibility to support an offender’s reintegration into the community, writes Father Babychan Arackathara in the introduction to his book, ‘Light Through the Bars: Understanding and Rethinking South Africa’s Prisons’.
