One of the main issues in determining ethical ways of dealing with wrongdoers is that there needs to be an established set of roles and definitions that work within society to provide a system that all potential criminals are subject to. Rawls for example noted that defining punishment was not the same as justifying punishment. Justifying the use of prisons should be separate from any act of punishment (committing a person to such place). and that the practice of punishment must be justified through either forward-thinking (consequentiality), or backward thinking (deontological).
