As Griffin points out in a neat demolition of that theory, the offender remains a person, who retains all his human rights, including the right to liberty, and his deserved punishment is the forfeit he suffers in virtue of his wrong-doing, rather than something that is rendered permissible because of the prior forfeiture of his right to liberty" (2010).
