I've been enjoying blog entries from all of you. Thanks for posting 'em!
I'm not a lawyer or a law school student. I'm a somewhat over-educated working-class laborer, so I really have only a 'laymans' perspective on legal issues.

I'm wondering - perhaps after the holidays, if one or more of you might be interested in discussing here your perspectives on the underlying purpose of criminal law. I'm particularly interested in knowing what you think about passing laws that criminalize behaviours specifically for the purpose of "educating the public". Is the creation of a criminal statute as "an educational tool" an acceptable use of the state's legal powers?
