To unpack: 'Justice as retribution' really reinforces the notion that we need to scare people into not doing bad things and enshrines the idea that revenge is the point of having the police. I strongly suspect it's the reason why swatting has become a thing (getting revenge on people you disagree with or had a fight with by calling in a false report that will likely have a tactical response team arrive on the scene, with all that entails). The police and the courts are not there so you can get revenge on people who have wronged you. The justice system exists so that we can fix problems and right wrongs. That it's only kinda good at doing that is exactly because we treat it as a revenge system (sorry, 'retribution') and keep pressuring our government to pass laws and policies that push it that way.
