quote Time the person proven guilty of a crime will have their liberty deprived for - whether in prison or mental hospital, sometimes in addition to other sanctions. It's a form of violence perpetrated by the state allegedly on behalf of society, on those who transgress against the state - and sometimes against society. The length of custodial sentence is generally higher for crimes against property than it is against the person, so that while society demands sanctions for crimes against persons to be higher, the state values property, generally because the state is comprised of property owners. unquote
