Rehab of hardened criminals - something to ponder??

Is Rehabilitation possible when you consider the following? All during history, from the time of Cain and Able all the way to our modern world criminals have had one thing in common - they all ate bread, and they all drank water. no exception to be found. Partakers one and all. When we incarcerate these badboys what do we do but nourish them on more BREAD and WATER?!?!?! where is the logic in that? Is it not apparent that Bread and Water is the source of their criminal behaviour? I mean it is the one absolute common denomanator amongst them all!

Ummm certainly something to think about - maybe that's why I'm so good, I don't eat much bread and have to force myself to drink water knowing it's good for me but then maybe it's not. Maybe my supconcious is saying "Don't do it, it'll make you bad." Opps I can think of one other common thread - they all had a mother and a father, better not let my kids read this, they'll then say it's all my fault they get in trouble.

Only one? Count your blessings - I have 3 that tend to say that from time to time :( It has broken my heart over the years but I guess if it helps them to have someone to put the blame on at least it's someone who loves them and won't hold it against them - hopefully eventually they will face the truth, they really have no one to blame but themselves.

Although there are cases that are unreahbilitable but I do believe also that there are many that can be rehabilitated and that is the reason why our society gives everybody the chance to be rehabilitated.
