Some people believe that giving longer prison sentences is the best way to reduce crime. Others believe that there are better ways to reduce crime. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
You should write at least 250 words.
There are many crimes which are punished by law with prison sentences, cash fines or other punishments like public service. Some of people believe that decreasing crime is only possible with longer prison sentences, while others believe that different solutions can be found such as education and rehabilitation.
First of all, there are many people suggests that longer prison sentences decreases the crime owing to fear of the penalty. However, giving longer prison sentences do not prevent a criminal from committing another crime according to statistics shared. In contrasts, prisoners who sentenced shorter and educated in the jail do not commit any crime with rate of 93%. For instance, Denmark which believes the reason of committing crime is lack of education and poverty, gives education to prisoners and gives shortest prison sentences to criminals in the Europe and has lowest proportion of crime across the Europe. Moreover, despite the idea of longer prison sentences is reducing crimes, longer prison sentences causes psychological problems and makes prisoners re-commit crimes after going out from prison. Nevertheless, rehabilitation of prisoner and optimised prison-sentences provides lower crime rates. To exemplify, Canada which has lowest crime ratios in both North and South America, states that committing crime is mostly caused by psychological problems and traumas. Therefore, they prefer rehabilitating prisoners rather than giving them longer sentences which may trigger their psychological problems.
To sum up, education and rehabilitation are the best two methods which may decrease crime rather than longer prison sentences. The reason of that is lack of education and psychological problems are the main reasons of crimes. Statistics and examples of these application proves this idea.
