So, are you saying that not only should the criminal be punished by the courts, but their families should be left destitute as well?

I thought you said you had empathy...
Their families would not be destitute - we have a welfare state, the criminals & their families were probably on benefits prior to incarceration (someone in a well paid job is a lot less likely to take the risk), in fact most men in prison who are fathers were probably absent fathers anyway, even if they were involved in their kids' lives, the mums were probably coping mostly alone anyway; we don't live in Ronnie Barker's Porridge times any more you know....
