6 из 14 Оценка эксперта внизу
Punishments for criminals have become a hot topic for debate in recent years. Some people claim that only prison can help us to cope with them, while others hold an opposite view.
In my opinion, we can find another way to punish criminals. Firstly, we can give them any public works like cleaning the streets. It will be more useful for society. Secondly, If always send people to prison, they want to take revenge.
It can lead to more crimes and even murders. If we don't send criminals to prison, we can listen about their problems and find the way for solution to them. It will be more useful than just punishments. Finally, prison selects a lot of abilities in career. People after prison can't find good job and compelled to live in horrible conditions. This low level of life create criminal situations. So, sending to prison has more pros than cons.
However, some people claim that prison is the only solution of criminal problem. They believe that people must live in awful conditions at prison. And they think that prison is the only and the best way of punishment.
Personally, I do not agree with the above mentioned opinion. I consider that prisons shouldn't exist, because such methods of punishment are old and ineffective. I believe that there are a lot of other ways to punish criminals.
In conclusion, although there are different opinions on this issue, I still believe that in modern world we can cope criminals not only by using prisons as punishment.
