Open the Doors…

Guest Post – Amanda Bridgeman on Curing Crime

Hello Robots! Amanda Bridgeman here, putting forward my thoughts on the possibility of curing crime.

In my novel, The Subjugate, I explore a somewhat utopian idea of curing criminals from re-offense. At least, curing those who would inflict physical harm upon another human being. It may seem like a far-off dream to some, but the truth is, it may not be as far from reality as we think.
