“Lock them up forever?” (Wegsperren für immer?)

Betrifft, SWR, 45 minutes

This documentary is about dangerous criminals and serial offenders. Are they able to get fully cured? How reliable are such therapies? Will they turn criminals to average citizens willing to integrate? Judge Klaus Michael Böhm from Karlsruhe talks about „pre-emptive victim protection“ when his association BIOS helps paedophile criminals and rapists to get therapies. Just to lock them up is no solution, he says. The judicial system has to change urgently. Up to now therapies would often only be approved if an offender is sentenced the second or third time.  „But a society can not afford to wait for relapses“.
