It's absolutely clear that people should not and must not be prosecuted for crimes they haven't committed. But at this point I think it's equally clear that there are simply some people who will not be able to straighten their lives and become functional members of society if they aren't given very real help.

Look, let's be clear about this. The "responsible and capable" people we're talking about are generally into cartoons and such.
