The answer to crime

Is punishment and isolation the true answer (solution) to crime?

Did you know that the very nature of life on the inside (prison) makes reform unlikely?

Many of those whom have experienced prison for as little as one night believe the longer the term of imprisonment, the greater the likelihood of repeated criminal activity and incarceration. Prison hardens one emotionally, weakens them mentally and brutalizes them physically. A molotov cocktail of danger, unpredictability and violence.

Make prison a ready-made answer (solution), lock its doors, lose the key, forcefully inject repeated doses of dehumanization and the fallen fruit is recidivism, but who cares?

The purpose of today’s judicial system is to punish, instead of rehabilitate.

The punishing of one trickles from generation to generation. Imprison one man and you incarcerate the social intelligence of his offspring and arrest the development of their descendants.

Prison as punishment disrupts the home. A disruption in the home makes the city more attractive. And the city and its ills sicken a significant portion of our society.

A study has shown juveniles arrested for violent crimes found that the more whom were committed to correctional institutions, the more likely they were to continue criminal activity into adulthood.

If numbers don’t lie, then the truth is our judicial system’s answer is more or less a big part of the problem.

Being a man with reason, even as I serve time, I agree that some degree of punishment is required. In the here and now, I believe the extent of punishment doled out by our courts borders extreme. Men and women distanced from understanding, dressed in black robes, clutching gavels as if they were automatic weapons, declaring war upon the masses.

Trust me when I tell you prison does little to reform or rehabilitate. Mandatory minimums, sentencing guidelines, disguised entrapment, admissible hearsay; all hit hard like hot ones (bullets) penetrating the flesh. Man down!

Is the purpose of prison to enact vengeance?

Why are our courts so unremorseful?

Minimal correction. Plenty punishment.

OUR beloved land of the FREE has the most incarcerated persons of ALL countries.

Prison, what a wonderful solution!
