I saw this on an Utne reader article comments
I have such mixed feelings about this issue. Would like to see some of the rehabilitated prisoners free and living a productive life. However, many of the drug addicts who ended up in prison, did do something harmful to society, mostly all against the 10 commandments. With that said, how do we protect ourselves from those who “know not what they do,” when under the influence of drugs, when again they fall prey to drugs again and again. What is the answer, we see it all the time. Those inflicting pain and trauma to others. I am afraid to see thousands of these previous drug offenders all let loose at once. What is the real answer?

This was my reply:
Patricia Masterson you have the right thought, however I think you have it directed the wrong way. Please remember the thought “know not what they do,” was not directed at those with a spiritual malady. It was directed to those driving the nails.
I would suggest to the lady read Mark 9 28-29
