prison as the best solution for crime?
Nowadays, the number of offenders is increasing higher and higher. In the face of rising crime rates, prison have been chosen as the best solution at the present time. Beside that some others think there is other effective ways to deal with them. Personally, I partly agree with the opinion.
- At first, the cost of raising a criminal is very high and with such a high crime rate it will cause a huge shortfall for the state budget. Instead of that, criminals can do voluntary works to help people in public. The government uses taxpayer's money to pay for police, prison guard, and other expenses needed to manage prisoners so prisoners have to work for them to help society.
- Truly, prisoners can go out to do voluntary works for society but we can't deny the danger that some criminals can cause harm to society. They are a very serious threat when they come into contact with the outside world and they really need to be detained completely to avoid hurting any other innocent people.
At the end this discussion, I completely agree that we have many other effective solutions to deal with them. On the other hand, we must have the test and make sure that nothing is going to happen to achieve the best effect.
