Comment on the following statement:
| Some people are sure that sending to prison is the only way to punish criminals. However, a lot of people believe there are far more effective punishments for criminals than prison. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think prison is the best punishment ever, whereas others do not agree with it. They consider it as a best place to make a criminal more experienced.
I think that there are far better punishments for criminals than prisons. First of all, people that are sent to prison for different crimes should not be kept together. They just vary their criminal skills. Second, if a person made a mistake, he has to have a chance to fix it. I also believe that criminals must be educated and shown other ways of getting what they want.
At the same time there are people who say that any crime must be punished. If criminals are not isolated from others they will continue committing different crimes.
In my opinion these people have a point. People who brake laws have to be shown that they were mistaken. However, I am sure that the best way to prevent them from commiting other crimes is to show and teach them alternative methods of achieving their goals.
In conclusion, I would like to say that humans tend to make mistakes. A crime is one of heaviest mistakes people can make. In my opinion, such people have to be punished but in such a way they could not do crimes again. I am absolutely sure there are always some positive ways to solve any problem a person might have.
