Difficult to Have “Wall of Shame” When There Is No Shame

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Perhaps a bit like making laws to stop criminals, who, by definition do not regard laws, states like Minnesota and Maine have traveling shows where they exhibit taxidermy wildlife confiscated from poachers in what they hope will deter others from poaching. I have no data to show whether it does or doesn’t work but should we expect that poachers will actually feel shame?

Well, we might think there is no shame but in our bit of comfort zone ideology, do we think criminals/poachers would steal/poach the poachers “Wall of Shame?”

It seems that in Minnesota thieves cut locks on gates and got into the trailers of the “Wall of Shame” and stole 17 shoulder-mounted deer heads.

Such class!

Here’s a photo of Maine’s version of a “Wall of Shame.”
