Judge hits out at 'this kind of crap' as teen convicted of delivery man robbery
from the article in the Irish Examiner:
A judge has told a Tallaght teenager who stole a Chinese takeaway that “this kind of crap” puts delivery men off doing their jobs.
“On the face of it to some this may seem a minor crime, property to the value of €18,” Judge Mary Ellen Ring told 19-year-old Daniel Wall, “but this delivery man, Mr Yang Yu, provides an excellent service, bringing food to people’s doors.”
“The kind of crap you engaged in puts people like Mr Yu off doing their work, they stop delivering and lose their business,” Judge Ring said as Wall nodded in agreement.
NCHERM-CR announces summit on the application of restorative justice practices to cases of campus sexual misconduct

This Summit is being convened to explore ways in which forms of conflict resolution, and especially restorative justice practices, may be utilized lawfully, productively and beneficially to improve on the traditional approaches used in student disciplinary proceedings.
The moral question
from the article by Kent Spencer in The Province:
....Elliott proposes a comparatively low-tech, low-cost method for dealing with the vast majority of offenders. It involves public apologies and community service in a concept known as restorative justice - meaning literally to restore the community to what it was.
He has offered to bring confessed wrongdoers to a place where they can meet with people who suffered trauma at the hands of roving thugs.
