Throughout history and across all cultures, imprisonment has always been an approach to punishing criminals, while some people advocate that for those whose crimes are not so serious, other approaches,
, community work, are worth trying. From my perspective, a flexible solution is highly recommended.
Putting the criminals in jail is necessary for all kinds of lawbreakers. All convicts deserve punishment to varying degrees, and only by depriving them of their freedom for a period of time can they truly examine their own conscience and realize the price to pay for their errors.
, for those who commit felonies
as robbery or murder, confinement can effectively prevent them from repeating their evils. No one can imagine what will happen if a ferocious killer is at large.
, restriction of their freedom and resulting deterrent are not the ultimate goal of prisons. In order to transform those convicts into good citizens, proper education,
as law knowledge promotion, job training, and community services are still necessary. Some of the offenders committed theft or robbery just out of ignorance and poverty. It is particularly true in the case of juvenile delinquency. Reeducation could help them to adapt to the society soon. And the beneficial community service serves to strengthen their sense of responsibility and empathy with others, because
practice can be soul-saving.
, they may fall back into crimes when they are rejected by the job fair or despised by others.
To conclude, in order to salvage a criminal, alternative means can be tried
putting them in jail. Respect and care for their human rights is equally important.
