Subject: Crime and punishment
A continuation on the topic of justice. I recently heard a filmmaker give a lecture on the differences between retributive justice and restorative justice.Here is a website that breaks down the differences. Retributive justice is about finding fault, placing blame, and punishing the guilty. I find restorative justice to be a much more sensible approach. What do you guys think about some of these concepts listed under "Restorative Justice"? For example, having victims actively involved in dialogue with the perpetrators?

Some more info:
