In writing up an answer, I wrote:
Furthermore we are cautioned that using shame punishment from a "retributive standpoint because the public can see punishment at work, it is nonproductive."
Now, I know I'm missing a comma after "furthermore", but my question is how would I remove ", it" from this quote? Using an ellipses seems like overkill, but I could be wrong.
Here is the original text:
In every case possible, judges should combine shame punishment with some utilitarian aspect. While requiring an individual to parade around a courthouse satisfies society from a retributive standpoint because the public can see punishment at work, it is nonproductive.
