The Journey to Prison

New or Used: 4 copies from $13.46
'There is a blond, angelic-faced five-year-old sitting in a classroom in New Zealand and he is coming to prison...on his way, he will probably kill someone.' With these words Cecelia Lashlie caused a media furore that propelled her into the headlines for weeks during 2001. Now she tells the story from her point of view, then goes on to look at the whole question of the origins of crime in New Zealand, the way we punish offenders, the effectiveness of prison (for both men and women), parental responsibility, the role of drugs, where education comes in and the role of state institutions. Underpinning her argument is the need for the community as a whole to take responsibility for the incidence of crime in our society. With her background as a prison officer in male prisons and manager of a female prison, Cecelia Lashlie is uniquely placed to offer insights and information that will inform the often unenlightened debate about crime and punishment in New Zealand.
