    It isn't. At least not where the theory is consistently applied on a system-wide level. I'll turn the question around, why is crime so rampant in places with punishment-oriented criminal systems. There shouldn't be any murders at all if you risk capital punishment, while places like Sweden where murderers serve 10-15 years should be a war zone. Why is it the other way around, with a national homicide rate (per capita) in the US a whopping 5 times bigger than in Sweden, and overall crime rate almost 35 times bigger (again per capita)?

    But does everyone in your shoes do the same? All it takes is that one corrupt cop who likes to abuse his station to beat people silly to burn the respect the honest ones strive to build to cinders.

I'm the type to believe what I see in practice rather than hearing about what works in theory.

    And earnt respect on my job I have - those won over I have no trouble with and even chat to some of them fairly regularly, the ones that aren't receptive to the more positive approach know to run at the sight of me. Different strokes for different folks I suppose, but either way, some people both child and otherwise don't seem to respond to anything but the physical stuff.
    You don't earn respect by getting physical. You earn fear. Fear is not to be confused with respect.

    --EDIT-- used odd statistics. Fix'd.
