In this unit, we discussed how 20% of violent criminals receive probation. Do you think that violent criminals should receive probation? Explain your reasoning.
REPLY TO MY CLASSMATE’S RESPONSE TO THE ABOVE QUESTION AND EXPLAIN WHY YOU AGREE? (A MINIMUM OF 200 WORDS EACH POST)
The short answer is no. All crimes are violent ask any victim; all crimes have victims ask any neighbor. It only makes me wonder of the 20% violent criminals receive probation. Why? A violent criminal is either a murder, rapist, kidnapper, armed robber, assault, terrorist, etc. All of these people deserve to go to prison where they will be kept away from innocent citizens.
I am perplexed that this is happening because if someone is being minus to society then they should be removed from it long enough to understand such behavior won’t be tolerated. All in all, the crime a person is convicted of does play a major role factor determining the security level of prison they’ll be sent to. Perhaps this just my opinion that inmates are evaluated regularly once they are in prison and depending on their conduct in prison that security level may be raised or lowered. Also, it is important to understand a person serving time for a violent crime doesn’t guarantee that they are a nonviolent person. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Am I right or wrong here?
My understanding we absolutely must get more serious about violent predatory crimes. If you are a murderer, a rapist, child predator you are clearly a serious danger to the public and no data shows we can assure you won’t do it again. Let be serious here to me these crimes constitute an individual giving up his right to be part of our society.
