If I offended anyone that is not my concern.
Not offended, too busy laughing lol.....
As a Mental Health Professional I base my theory on the mental health of the inmate.
You still have side stepped the issue of what about victims rights... do you have no empathy for them or is it all one sided?
Without treating the underlying issues that they carry with them into prison you have only punished them. Not solved the problem.
I do know this the inmates who access programs that help them transition back into soceity are successful. The support they receive both in and out of prison is important to changing their lives.
Repeating myself and others, the problem is a lack of respect for others, it is easier to steal than to work.....
If anyone thinks that being poor, minority , an abused and negelected child have no bearing on your life then you have your head in the sand.
Head in a sand?, pot calling the kettle black, you still are negating the fact that 90% of people in poverty do not commit crimes. Just a liberal excuse.
I am not concerned about what they did, or how long they served a sentence. My concern is about what caused them to caommit a crime and how to prevent it.
Already covered many times.
I have lived ion a few different countries in my life.
Israel being one of them and a few in Europe.
Their crime rates are no where near what our are they imprison far fewer people than we do.
If you lived in other Countries you should already realize Criminals are not molly coddled in most Countries, they serve hard time, you should also know Prisons in the US are a resort compared to most Foreign Prisons.
If the reason for less Criminals in other Countries was all about Mental Health Issues and Physiological Theories, do you not think the US would have adopted those measures and our Criminal population would be cut dramatically?
