    Are jails needed?

    Statistics:

    ****************************1990******1995*****199 7*****1998

    Violent crimes per 100,000 people: 732*******685******611******566

    murders manslauters(1,000):*****23.4******21.6******18.2** ***16.9

    Prisoners(1,000):**************740*******1085***** *1192****1302

    New jails were built(220) between 1990 and 1998. Previous jails were not considered "overcrowded" but they built them to house "more prisoners" even though the crime rate was lowering. So do we need so much jails? Why are jails built so much? is it just a cheap workforce to use? What do you think?

    (these statistics are, of course limited, but better have been done showing the magical need for more prisoners, but crime rates overall lowering.)

    Prisons. I think we need them. But we need to clean up the system that sends the prisoners to prison.

    We need prisons, however bad and overcrowded they may be. At the very least, they give other people something close to a feeling of security. And yes, the system is miserable. Also, some prisoners come out worse than when they came in, becasue of other prisoners. And the overcrowding has become ridiculous.

    To youth_anime_fan: Sorry, but I might not be understanding what you are saying. Are you saying that even though we have a lower crime rate, more prisons are being built, supposedly "illogically"? Uh... you do realize there are more thousands of people every year, right?

    Lower crime rates? I dont know about that....Tehy're building more prsions because of what Ryke said. There are thousands of people born each day. Thouhg instead of prisons they should be building schools. Dont you think? They expect more criminals than children. Well, if these people are born each day..They must learn, correct?

    -sigh- I'm not a big fan of prisons. Sure they help to keep our community safe. I'm just not a big fan of them. -shudders-

    Well I don't think we need to build anymore prisons, but certainly keep the ones we have.

    Prisons only take effect on small time thugs, and petty thieves. People who undertake in serious crimes often don't change, if they are ever realesed. Plus crime bosses still lead their organizations from jail. This is especially true with drug trafficing, the drugs and or money is sent through the prisons. And the people who do this obviouly can't be thrown in prison since they're already there.

    So in the end yes we do need prisons, but only to correct the smaller criminals that can be helped.
    Dreams come true, but nightmares do too.

    Life isn't a game, it's just a referal to the time you exist on this playground called Earth.
