Sea Change Radio

Peo­ple some­times like to quote that Bible pas­sage about an eye for an eye” when jus­ti­fy­ing a puni­tive crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem focused on ret­ri­bu­tion and vengeance. Oth­ers like to repeat a say­ing often attrib­uted to Ghan­di, that an eye for an eye will leave the whole world blind.” This week on Sea Change Radio, we get philo­soph­i­cal about crime and pun­ish­ment. Our guest today is Celia Ouel­lette, a human rights lawyer and CEO of the non­prof­it Respon­si­ble Busi­ness Ini­tia­tive for Jus­tice. With­in the scope of her organization’s cam­paigns, we take a crit­i­cal look at the Amer­i­can prison indus­tri­al com­plex and pri­vate pris­ons, the inef­fec­tive­ness of the death penal­ty, and the dra­con­ian prac­tice of lock­ing juve­niles up for life
