Male criminals are evil, female criminals are merely misguided (poor darlings!)

Bacik calls for prison alternatives for minor offences | BreakingNews.ie

Quote:
“Women are a particularly vulnerable prison population and there is a strong case for abolishing prisons for them and replacing them with small custodial units for just a small number of people who have committed crimes of violence,” Senator Bacik said, in advance of her address.'

Seems to me that prison is overkill for most people -- female or male -- who commit minor, non-violent offenses.
