Well said

placing persistent reoffenders back in the community as an alternative to prison, does not work, either as a means of reform or protecting the community

Public statements by senior judges and politicians, saying 'prison does not work' and that 'community sentences are effective in reducing crime' are contradicted by hard evidence

So what if prison does not reform people: they are locked up and not harming the rest of society

A summary from someone with practical sense of where we should be with sentencing.
