And yet 10.5 years might as well be a yet another lifetime. This isn't
rehabilitation, this is vengence. Jail is a deterrent, but at some point
you have diminishing returns. Putting her in jail doesn't bring back a
life and probably hurts many others. It is arguably making the world
safer but isn't there a better way?
I don't know that I have the right answer, but I can't see putting
someone in prison for 10 years doing anybody any good.
