S01:E01 - Strike Hard
As crime rates are falling across the world, harsher punishments are on the rise. A majority of Canadians want tougher punishments implemented, so we explore a variety of these punishments from around the world, ranging from the Chinese Strike Hard policy that has executed thousands, to Sheriff Joe Arpaio's unconventional punishments in the USA, which have made him a celebrity.
S01:E02 - Gentle Justice
In contrast to the hasher punishments seen across the world, countries like Finland are taking a more gentle hand. This ranges from speeding tickets and fines weighted upon your wages to make sure the rich feel the sting of justice as much as the poor, to jails that focus more on rehabilitation. Now, Canada is torn between older punishments and possibly more effective methods.
