This response offers an additional theoretical perspective to the “Catch-22” problem as discussed in Assy and Menashe’s (2014) article. It offers to look beyond risk in the discussion about parole of denying prisoners. By focusing on the retributive meaning of the problem, the response offers an additional framework to discuss the magnitude of the problem (via proportionality analysis), and the overt and covert forces that influence a parole board’s discretion in action (via character retributivism analysis).
