Here's a truly lovely video of restorative justice pioneer Mark Yantzi of Canada speaking about the inspiration for some of the first victim-offender meetings as a way of resolving a series of crimes - the notorious Elmira case. Yantzi is director of Community Justice Initiatives.

I love Yantzi saying at the very end of this 8-minute talk, "Crime is something that harms people, but if in the addressing of crime we can make things better for everyone, we've really been restorative in what we do."
