Notes
The Primate, Michael Peers, reflects on his visit to a prison for women and the subjects of justice, prevention and punishment. He remembers asking the Chancellor of General Synod for a legal definition of the latin phrase "Melior est justitia verepraeveniens quam severe puniens". "Translated from Latin, it says, 'Better is justice which truly prevents than justice which severely punishes'. I do not know the source of the quotation, but I know its truth. And I also know its urgency." "The quotation creates a contrast between prevention, which points to wholesomeness of life, and punishment, which points to retribution. Retribution is enormously popular in North America". "The very word 'penitentiary' arises from the tradition which calls for penitence and amendment of life as the goals of such an institution, rather than mere punishment and retribution". "During the Absolution at Morning and Evening Prayer in the tradition of the Book of Common Prayer, we hear this description of God's purpose for us, 'who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness and live'. These are words for all people, prisoners and everyone else. They also tell us how God wishes sinners, ourselves and others, to view one another in the light of this purpose for us all".

Notes
The author, "is an Anglican priest, a former police officer, and a teacher. He works full-time with marginalized youth in Kingston, Ont." The author describes a panel discussion, on crime and how the church should respond to, which he attended in 2000. He argues passionately that while the churches need to continue their ministry with prisoners, this is "only one way the church should respond. If hearts are going to be changed [as the Rev. Dale Lang, whose son was murdered, and who spoke at the panel urged] and individuals told they are special and made in the image of God, we need workers in the field to help facilitate such a transformation before the crime occurs. Restorative justice occurs after the crime."

Notes
"I read with great interest 'Rough justice' (June 2011, p. 1). As a lawyer for eight decades, I consider the attempted kidnapping and subsequent killing of Osama bin Laden an example of the inconsistency of our leaders". "A basic tenet of U.S. law, and also of most legal systems in democratic nations, is that due process is fundamental. .... If this kind of action is tolerated, the next instance may be in anyone's home. I hope that all religious, political and legal leaders will stand firm in insisting that due process remain the guardian of our civilized society".

Notes
"Thank you for your thoughts on Osama bin Laden ('Opening our hearts and minds', June 2011, p. 4). Normally people are brought before a court and impartial judgment is rendered -- be it local, national or international court. Having contacts in Pakistan and having travelled recently in countries surrounding Afghanistan, I assure you, there are many questions. Canadians, U.S. and Western ignorance of the Islamic world is a factor". [Text of entire article.]
