• Yes In Deed

    If you are human you are going to need at the very least 10^1000000000000000 chances to begin to get the idea of what someone wants. So two chances would be very limiting. And then, after 10^1000000000000000 chances or so, you're about a full 1/2 % of the way there! So yes, 2 chances should be offered.

  • Yes they should get second chances.

    Everybody makes mistakes. Nobody is perfect, even if you want to be. People learn from their mistakes easily, but sometimes you will need help to learn from them. On the bright side, you should forgive the people who made mistakes and let them make it right. And no, the "three strikes and you're out" is a negative quote.

  • Yes they do

    As long as they are willing to prove to you, they know what they did was wrong, they assure you it will never happen again, and they demonstrate it then yes. Everybody deserves a chance to prove themselves but mess up the second chance and you're done forever no 3rd chances.

  • Absolutely- yes, yes, yes

    Everyone makes mistakes in this world, and most of us regret it after we do it- it could be mere minutes, days, months, or even years. Nonetheless, it is important that we strive to compensate for what we did, in small, inexplicable ways. People who do that certainly deserve a second chance. The transgression can be as trivial as shoplifting and can go up the road to rape and murder, but as long as we are sorry for what we do, and make a promise to God that we won't do so again, we all deserve a second chance to make up, to apologize and to do whatever we can to make the world a better place.

  • Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! They can

    People make mistake, that dose not mean they are bad people. No one is perfect. And after given a second change people grow into a person that they really want to be."forget" their sins, "remembering them no more". Is said in the bible. Learn to Forgive and learn to forget.

  • Yesssss ssss ssssss

    We all make mistakes and we all learn from our mistakes come on no one is perfect, sometimes based on circumstances we make some poor decisions but that doesn't mean that we should not be forgiven. Most of the time people learn from their previous mistakes and don't make the same mistake again.

  • People sometimes make decisions.

    People sometimes make poor choices based on circumstances or stress. Since it is impossible to know exactly what someone else is thinking when they make poor choices, it is generous and kind to keep an open mind. Often a second chance is a magnanimous gesture that is a wise and mature choice.

  • Yes they should

    Of course people need a second chance because normal people do mistakes and I think they should be punished. But they should be forgiven and give the opportunity for a second chance to learn from their mistakes. As well as never repeat the mistake again. EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE. 😃

  • Yes,, Yes, Yes

    Everyone deserves a Second chance. There is no one in this world that is Perfect. Asking for a chance should be a YES in every aspect of life, especially in the work world. If someone is willing to ask and explain, they certainly seem to be real and should be positively enforced. We all should be people of giving second chances.

  • Yes, they should.

    People should get second chances. It is possible to learn from your mistake and grow as a person and as a individual. We are not perfect, no one is, we all make a mistake and move on. People need second chances to continue to prove they can grow and change.

  • King Ashoka of India

    He was a horrible man, killing thousands of people in the most brutal of ways, by cutting of their hands, making them starve to death, and killing them through exhaustion. He eventually became a kind ruler of a huge empire, but does this relieve him of his mistakes? Absolutely Not.

  • Yes, but only one chance

    We should only allow criminals one chance and only one. If we keep on allowing them back on the streets and they continue the same what's that going to solve. After the person's only chance we put the death penalty against, trust me there will be no more crimes committed

  • It gives people the chance to prove them selves

  • Don't give them another chance

    Criminals don't deserve second chances. Would you want a murderer, rapist, or smuggler to get another chance. Another redo? What's the difference between a second chance and a tenth chance? They still are both do overs. How would you feel if there was a released criminal living next to you? Most people would be quite uncomfortable. It has actually been shown that most criminals continue their dirty work even after they are given a second chance. Do people like this deserve a second chance? A second chance to do more crimes except this time making sure they don't get caught.

  • Not everyone deserves second chances

    Not everyone deserves second chances because they already had a second chance or even what they have done was so bad that there is no way of changing. However you can learn from it.
    So when people have second chances they need to be very committed in order to change.

  • Not all people deserve a second chance

    You wouldn't give a murderer, rapist or a child molester a second chance.
    They are still people (albeit monsters of people) same as the guy who got fined for jaywalking or loitering or other stupid offenses like that. No! Everyone does not deserve a second chance. Some do, but definetely not all.

  • No, I don't think so

    Not everyone deserves a second chance. There is no difference between a second chance and a tenth chance, both are re-do's, so why should one be granted a second try, but no more after that, as you have argued? Studies show that 52% of criminals return to jail after they are released for the first time. Though the giver of the second chance may have good intentions, the receiver can see it as an opportunity to do worse, for they got away with injustice the first time.

    No one in life should be "given" anything. One must earn their second chance. By earning this, one isn't experiencing a second chance; they are experiencing a new beginning.

    If a person was in the wrong place at the wrong time, they do not need a second chance; they did not do anything wrong. Though, in such circumstance, they may have gotten penalized for their role in whatever crime, a second chance would not be necessary. They have nothing to make up for.

    I concur that everyone makes mistakes and that no one is perfect. I also agree that great experience comes from learning from said mistakes. However, while second chances should be deemed under certain circumstances, not everyone deserves the right to be granted a second chance.

    I do believe in second chances. I don't, however, believe everyone deserves one.

    "This year, 10,839 people will die in drunk-driving crashes - one every 50 minutes." A drunk driver that has killed an innocent life absolutely does not deserve a second chance at being able to drive freely. There are certain privileges that should not be taken for granted or looked upon lightly.

    "An average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before first arrest." These drivers have gotten more than a second chance. The more times they drive drunk, the higher the risk someone's life will be ended. A human life is more precious that a second chance.

    Again, I'm not saying people no one deserves second chances. But, not everyone should be automatically given one.

  • Depends on the crime

    Would you let a child rapist, child molester, murderer, or deranged psycho back on the streets after getting caught? Yes they will do time, and yes they might go to a correctional facility. However, who says they will actually change? This is my stance on this topic and I hope this opened your eyes.

  • Not everyone deserves a second chance

    If you are a parent and you get a call that your child has been murdered to believe that the person who did that deserves a second chance. Do you believe a pedophile or rapist deserves a second chance to go and do it again and ruin a poor little girl or boys life. If you are a man and have a girlfriend or wife or maybe another male friend or partner do you think that someone who rapes, sexually assaults or abuses them deserves a second chance to do this again to another one of your friends or partners? Tell me would you let a dirty pedophile, rapist or sexual assaulter near your family? There is no excuse for hurting a human being or taking ones life adults are supposed to know what they are doing they should never ever hurt another adult or child
