Daily News: Inspired Punishments

Philadelphia Daily News depicts legal creativity.

From gun-offender registries to humiliating slide shows, some cities have become creative in cracking down on repeat gun offenders.

Recidivism is rampant in the nation's criminal community, and incarceration hasn't proven an effective deterrent to many, statistics suggest.

Forty-one percent of the nation's 665,475 local jail inmates in 2002 - the most recent year such statistics are available - had a prior conviction for a violent offense, and almost a quarter had three or more prior incarcerations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics.
