The issue of criminals re-offence has always been concerning for the authorities. There are some possible reasons why one person still break the law after being in prison. In this essay, I will suggest some ways to help mitigate the problems.
There is no doubt that having a criminal record can dramatically impact a person's life, especially from the personal finance and social perspectives. Coming out from prisons, many offenders are left behind from a fast-growing economy. The lack of trade skills and knowledge refrain ex-criminals from earning an adequate living. I think that low incomes is the major reason that push people to commit wrong doings. In addition, society tends to avoid connections to people with a troubled past, making these individuals a victim of isolation and discrimination. The feeling of bitterness may re-evoke their cognitive law-breaking patterns.
From my perspective, both the government and the society can help to resolve these problems. To start off, the mental health of confined individuals must be well-cared about. There should be well-designed rehabilitation programs that teach them the rights and wrongs, and the responsibilities of a good citizens. With the right techniques, changing a person from his understanding is key to a powerful improvement in behaviors. Besides that, to ensure that criminals can be employed after the imprisonment, apprenticeship programs and safe community jobs can provide these people with skills and experiences. At the same time, we should have more generous view about offenders and encourage them to re-integrate into the community.
It is true that some criminals repeat their mistakes in the past. To me, reasons may varies from financial hardships to the failure to create desirable social relationships. To tackle these issues, governments should provide supportive rehabilitation programs and people in the community should also change their attitudes toward ex-criminals.
