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.
Strong prison sentences have always been discussed by people all over the world, some people believe that is the way to reduce criminality, while on the contrary others thinks that is possible to find alternative ways to have less crime. I agree with the second point of view, nowadays, we have a number of examples where next longer prison sentences, the crimes continued to increase.
It's really common, that people are very boring to live in a place with many criminalities and believe that to stop this problem the only way is to give longer prison sentences. I understand totally this point of view, but as I said I disagree, the state must guarantee a new life for prisoners with the hope that they don't make their mistakes again.
In other words, long sentences for instance 30 years of prisons decrease the possibility to make a new life and generate hate from prisoners.
I'm convinced that longer prison sentences must be adopted only in a few cases, for example, terrorism crime or mafia crime.
I think that one of the best ways to reduce crimes is the prevention that must be done by parents, schools and governments.
Another advice If we want really reduce crime, governments must improve the aids for prisoners when they are out of jail.
To conclude, of course, this is not a simple topic but we must remember that if we want really reduce the crimes, the main role is played by the government that must make the right choice for the community.
