Quote of the Day

" is questioned whether "pardons" should be left in the "prosecuting" department. From the viewpoint of society in considering application for pardons, is not "prosecution" the one thing to be kept out of it or very far in the background? Instead of this public function being left to the prosecuting "faculty," should not the power and duties be transferred to the "social welfare" group, with such amplifications as to make possible an -up-to-date plan of parole and probation part of the outworking of the problem of social reconstruction?" - Proceedings of the Academy of Political Science,1921
