So the way i percieve this would be.. A slap on the wrist first and then they go to jail if they repeat an offense? Why would wait until they commit the crime again ? Why let another person/animal/ ect suffer? I wouldn't want a child molester to offend and it be his/her first time and they get let go? Or is it for Rehabilitation? What about lifers? Or Death row?
I think Jail is for rehabilitation. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.

ya jail is a tough call. Its hard to judge someone against their crimes, I mean how do you know they will never do it again, how do you know if they have it in them to change? Some people think that the death penalty is the answer, so we clear out the jails and make sure repeat violent offenders aren't put back on the street. I definitely don't think jail should be used for theft, fraud, and other non-violent crimes. I think paying fines and some sort of probation would be sufficient to deter such behaviour.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for
freedom. Against that power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot
I feel that jail is for violent crimes, non violent crimes should be punished by a fine and/or community services.
I dont agree with the 3 strike system when it comes to serious offensives, it angers me to no end that someone commits a crime and is then set free only to commit the same crime again, im expecially sad for the victims of the second offense how can you have faith in a judicial system like that
When someone commits a crime there is a trail. Those involved in the trial determine whether or not the person arrested is at risk for repeat offending. They look at the person's background, look at character witnesses, etc.
If it is determined that a person is at-risk for repeating their crime and this crime endangered others then the person should be sent to jail.
If this was a non-violent crime and the person has no history of offending then the person should not be put in jail.
For crimes of passion (those that are NOT pre-meditated) and there is no history of such crimes then I don't see the reason for putting someone in jail.
In fact, studies show that people who are imprisoned typically get worse and become angry over time and when released more often than not become repeat offenders.
No we never know if someone is going to repeat or not, but we must give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

See this makes no sense to me. Why wouldn't anyone with any common sense think this is horrible and I am never getting in trouble again so that I won't have to go through this again. Isn;t that the logical thing to do? but no instead they go to jail, cry the whole time about how they can't live without their kids, wife ect.. and then come home and do the same stupid irresponsible childish things that got them in trouble to begin with.
