  • Forgiveness is a sign of Civilisation.

    Under the right circumstances, we are all capable of the most heinous crimes. To employ a good vs evil dichotomy is unhelpful here. By and large criminals are driven to crime due to a bad hand in life, be t poor education, poor parenting, abuse, poor role models, mental health issues, drug addictions etc. Rehabilitation and reintegration into society is important and civilised. Let us never throw another human being onto the proverbial dust heap. With the right help, people can leave crime behind them.

  • In God We Trust

    Because our country puts our trust in God, we should give give criminals second chances as Christ showed mercy to us. There would have to be guidelines for release, but ultimately if they have shown that they have changed they should be released. If God shows mercy, we should follow in his footsteps.

  • Yes, depending on the crime.

    If people are locked up for petty crimes, then they should be given the chance to Amend their crime and reform. However,deliberate, unjustified murderers should not be given another chance because no one has the right to take any life, and what they did was too bad for any second chances or forgiveness.

  • Can you forgive? Yes.

    Making mistakes appears to be normal as nobody is impeccable. Everyone can make mistakes but they all deserve to have a second chance. Prisoners, especially the ones that commit petty crime, should be given that chance as they may probably turn over a new leaf and be a good citizen.

  • Their lives are wasted in prison. Give specific prisoners another chance (small time thieves (esp. Those who rob out of necessity), small time violence, etc.)

    Monitor them for a period of time, help them find suitable training/education/jobs and see how their perspective about life will change. They will realize that it isn't worth committing crimes because prison isn't a nice place. Also, by releasing people, less tax revenue will be spent on prisons. Putting people in prison for an extended period of time for small crimes will worsen their attitude. For example, Charles Bronson, who received a 7 year sentence for a small robbery. He has been in prison for over 36 years because of violence against inmates. Another example in a guy in England who was caught in an attempted robbery with a fake gun and was given a life sentence... Now that is harsh. I believe that criminals who do it for necessity (unemployed, uneducated, etc.) is a result of injustice in society.

  • Everyone deserve a second chance including prisoners.

    Inmates are human being too. They made a mistake that got them were they are however life is not over for some of them. Why keep them incarcerated for such a long time instead of helping them see life in a better aspect. Why have their family suffer as well for their mistake. It is very unfair for those that love this inmates to have to live a life without them specially the children's of these individual incarcerated. We all make mistakes some worse than others, some get caught others don't. There is also innocent people in prison; prisoners that got blame for a crime they didn't commit. We all deserve an opportunity to change to learn from our mistakes. Inmates deserve a chance to become a better person, a father or per hap raise their children.

  • Keep coming back

    People in the prison system are just going to go back out into our society and take advantage of our "second chance" mindset. If we stiffen sentences and put professional criminals on death row, we will cut back on those who plague our society. Also prisons must be harsher, meaner and harder on criminals to remind them that this is not a place for relaxation. We should bring back the chain gangs and work them to exhaustion. They should not get any "recreational time" and should be unable to socialize. We should also make sure that death row is sped up so we can add new inmates.

  • No second chance business

    I mean why should they be given second chance they will just abuse i.By committing the same mistake,take for example a poor girl was murdered but the person who murdered her will be given second chance but what about the girl she was not given second chance dont you guys think that is unfair.

  • Second Chances= More Crime

    Giving prisoners a second chance just gives them the opportunity to commit even more crimes or if the prisoner was ratted on, then they could end up killing the person who did. It makes it so giving the police a heads up is just like you going on death row yourself

  • Why give them a wasted chance

    Most people in prison conform to the prison life and are unable to convert back into citizens abiding the law, so to escape back into their "haven" those convicts commit yet another crime to go back to prison, they wasted their second chance and were effectively able to hurt innocent people. Its ludicrous to think that these people who were convicted could actually become good again. There also is no argument that the person could be innocent from the start, since there are so few innocent people wrongly accused of crimes.

What does giving second chance exactly mean? Is it by forgiveness from the victims or is it by giving them pardon?
