Convict Finds Freedom Overwhelming, Commits Arson And Returns To Prison.

This is probably Comedy at first glance to some people.  But it is only Comedy due to its absurd Tragedy.  It is a symptom of just how ineffective and broken our current model for “corrections” is.

Because if you want a person to behave like a civilized human being, you lock them in prison for 26 years inside an insular community of anti-social, dangerous people, then release them back into society, right?  Makes sense.
