There but for the grace of God

Tonight on the radio I heard a program where the host raised the question "have you ever done anything that could have put you in jail?". What was interesting was the host's point was that people in jail are not that different, at least in many cases, from 'normal people'. Now having said that, there are some very bad people in jail - I've seen lots of them - but not everyone who commits a crime is a monster to be demonized and punished without mercy. Most people who commit crimes are ordinary people who did a bad thing. Let's try to remember this.
