Over the last thirty years our society has been persuaded to use ‘criminal justice’ as a way of solving social problems. The number of people criminalised as well as the numbers sent to prison have spiralled out of control. Victims’ needs are not met and social inequalities have continued to grow. Attempts to reform criminal justice have expanded the system and privatisation can only mean more of the same.
