Clay Higgins on Crime
Our founding Christian pilgrims determined that a convicted man would be housed in a clean, secure place, treated with respect as a fellow child of God, provided basic food and water and encouraged to seek PENITENCE. This is why our jail system in America is called the PENITENTIARY SYSTEM. Our jails were never supposed to be about punishment. They were always designed to offer penitence. Because a penitent man punishes himself, does he not?
I speak across America to law enforcement gatherings, and almost NOBODY knows this story. We have strayed SO FAR from the original intent of our beautifully envisioned Penitentiary system that the Americans who manage the system don't even know of its origin.
