Once a thief, always a thief?

Wednesday, 12 February 2014

Baillie Aaron of Spark Inside gave a TEDx talk last year on resisting the label of 'offender' for people who have been convicted for offences. She calls for us to think of people as people first in a bid to move beyond law breaking activity and see the person rather than the 'offence'.

You can watch her talk below or on YouTube here. The video stimulated an interesting debate on our Twitter feed and you can see so of the more interesting responses here.
