It is also a question we ask ourselves as members of a democracy, which thrives only with an informed and engaged citizenry. In an op-ed for The Greenville News, Furman President Elizabeth Davis writes about an upcoming four-week series at Furman, “Crime and Punishment: Thinking Outside the Cell,” that gives all of us an opportunity to examine questions about our system of justice and deepen our understanding of its complexities.
