From Punishment to Transformation: A Radical Solution That Would Change Our Legal System Forever!
Our legal system is undeniably flawed, especially when it comes to addressing the complex issue of criminal behavior. While punishment has traditionally been the focus of our justice system, it's time to shift our perspective and put more effort into understanding the root causes of crime. Rather than simply inflicting punishment, we need to develop comprehensive post-incarceration programs that prioritize rehabilitation and reintegration. By doing so, we can facilitate a smooth and successful re-entry into society, promoting positive change and reducing recidivism rates.Ashleigh NicolePublished 14 days ago in The Swamp

January 20th (San Juan, Puerto Rico) – Since the time of Christopher Columbus, the island-territory now known as Puerto Rico has never been independent and free. For hundreds of years, it remained a Spanish colony until the United States “liberated” it in 1898.
