Excellent post over at CrimProf Blog linking to a WaPo article on shame as a possible sentencing option, "getting it" about both the potential for effectiveness and social restitution while acknowledging the dangers. Very good and reasonable discussion of what's possible if cooler heads prevail and deliberation doesn't get prematurely bogged down in "how many pins can stick into the head of an angel?" sandtraps. This is where debate should begin.
