• Maybe they lived in a hard home

    If the mom and dad where mean to the child they could have done something bad and not been able to learn from their experience. So are you just going to leave them in jail? Let them have another chance maybe they were just drugged or being abused so let them have another chance

  • They need help.

    It's not they're choice to be locked behind cell doors, what if they are mentally unstable. They are not for blame, they deserve to be treated, not just to be locked away and called fixed. We need to stand for those who can't stand for themselves, we need justice. We need equality.

  • Rehabilitation isn't often adequate

    Rehabilitation isn't usually adequate for the prisoner. Many prisoners are beyond rehabilitation. Many aren't. The idea of rehabilitation is very appealing. I think that this technique might not be as effective as it could be because what is offered simply isn't as extensive or as thorough as it needs to be.

  • If it was we would not have such a problem.

    Of course, many people should not even be in jail in the first place. That is just how our society keeps the money flowing in certain areas of our economy. If we do not rehabilitate the prisoners that need it. They will keep getting locked up, and it keeps the vicious cycle going. Keeping many people's wallets padded.

  • No, it could be improved.

    The United States judicial system typically focuses more on punishment than on rehabilitation. If jails and prisons focused more on rehabilitation, there would be fewer repeat criminals and those who leave the system would be better able to build a life and improve their situation rather than falling back onto old criminal habits.

  • No, more programs are needed.

    No, jails are not doing enough to rehabilitate inmates. The government has a responsibility to U.S. citizens to keep them safe, so more programming is needed to help offenders to not re-offend once released. Recidivism rates are extremely high and more should be done to keep offenders from returning to jail.
