This assignment focuses on the foot tagging, which is a relatively new phenomenon in the use of punishment. Foot tagging was introduced in Denmark in 2005, which makes it possible to reverse some prison sentences into doing the time at home, with an electronic foot tagging. Foot tagging is in general seen as a mild punishment, relative to prison, and there are many indications that foot tagging works rehabilitating. But what kind of suffering, does this sentence implie? Our analysis aims to uncover the offenders experience with foot tagging as punishment in practice. Based on interviews and other empirical data regarding. The offenders experiences, we analyze where and how, respectively, the gentle, suffering and rehabilitating elements in the foot tagging is located. For the analysis, we have made use of the theories of Michel Foucault, and Nils Christie's theory of the punitive values constant. The conclusions are in a very condensed version; that the punitive value is subjective and depends on ex. the offender's age, housing and social conditions. It consists of rehabilitating a schematization and disciplining the offender and his/hers everyday life, as some get used to the way.
