debate-'criminals are wicked and deserve punishment'

Aruna Mullick From Apeejay School, added an answer, on 12/4/10

criminals deserve to be punished. Most of the people would not hesitate to claim that those who break the law should be punished ans]d put into prison as long as possible in case they continue to endager our lives and property. Also, if criminals are not given any punishment they may commit crimes again and again.Crime in general is the worst thing a person can do because it violates the law and it is a violation against the victims.Therefore, to protect the security of the society they should be punished according to the severity of the crime. So, regardless of what sort of crime someone is commiting they have to pay for their crime.

 No man take birth as a criminal. Their circumstances force them to do what their heart never wills. Their circumstances can be anything it can be due to poverty, ailments or shortage of food. As in the drama bishops candlesticks the convict steals to save his wife from suffering which he never wanted to do. But there was no way other than stealing. But after stealing as by his luck he was caught. And the punishment given to him was too big for his shoes. This was just an example. Imagine how many people in this world would be suffering like this.Instead of understanding the pros and cons of the prisoner he is chained and whipped behind the bars. After a great suffering in the jail they just convert the criminals into a wild beast. Criminals are also human beings and they need to be consulted.No man is born great and no man is a criminal.They want to get wok but there is no employement for them because of shortage of wealth.

Society should treat them like normal people.They should be consulted and given a job.People are the future.People should change the world.In this generation by stealing or by lazing around there is no escape.They have to be preached in a certain manner.
 
By these i conclude that criminals arent wicked and do not deserve punishment.
 
we can leave even 1000 criminals to escape but nowhere should one innocent be prosecuted

 One thing is clear - there are far too many people in American prisons. There are far too many 'criminals' in prison despite the fact that they pose no significant threat to society. As a result - otherwise productive citizens are sitting in a jail cell costing taxpayers money to look after.

Despite this, there are many non-violent crimes which warrant jail time. Without this, the penalties for breaking the law might be so mild, that people will take calculated risks. For instance, when I was a child, I was told not to eat more than two cookies. However, the punishment if caught would be that I would have to return the excess cookies. Therefore, from my point of view, it made sense for me to always try and get away with extra cookies. If the punishment had been a spanking, being grounded etc - then I would have factored in the risk, and would have decided against taking extra cookies. Imagine if CEO's took the same view towards corporate fraud.

Now, I am not suggesting that people who break any infraction of the law should go to prison, nor am I suggesting that the current system is perfect, or even remotely close to perfect for that matter.

However, I do feel that there are many non-violent crimes which merit a prison term - not community service, not a suspended sentence, not house arrest and not probation - but prison.

Here are a few examples:

1) Repeatedly driving drunk or with a suspended sentence.
2) Defrauding seniors out of their life savings.
3) Ignoring the constitution and illegally wiretapping American citizens.
4) Making hundreds of millions of dollars while falsifying documents to trick investors into investing in your company.
5) Selling crack.

Do we really want these people on the streets? Do we really want to give them a slap on the wrist? Do we really want to give these people a chance to escape and go to a South American country to retire? Absolutely not. These people might not kill, but they are every bit as dangerous as the drunk who punches a cop in the face

 i think that the criminals should not be punished as they are not born criminal. They become criminals due to the circumstances faced by them . A person does not commit a crime without any reason. The bible also says'HATE THE SIN AND NOT THE SINNER'. So the criminals should not be given the punishment but the crime should be punished

 I do not agree with the statement that All Criminals Are Wicked And Deserve Punishment. No body is a criminal from birth. It is the environment in which he grows that makes him a criminal or a respected man. Some people turn into criminals due to poverty as they are not able to nourish their family as theConvict in the Bishop’s Candlesticks. He is a good man but his poverty made him worst. Crime needs punishment but first one must look into the reason of the crime and then punish the culprit. Nowadays it is seen that criminals are roaming free and innocent people are sent to prison.One wrong step can turn innocent people into criminals.To remove crime and criminals we have to clean and purify this world and there should bejustice for everyone.

Criminals should be punished and through that the criminals must quit the tendency to do that crime again and again.The main thing we have to notice is that the people whom we are considered as criminals is not criminals by birthand the situations make them as criminals. So if our society must give them a chance to change we hope that they must change but not in some cases.For example we can say that recently our country INDIA had punished ie, menached a terrorist named AJMAL KAZAB for the crime he did ie, he was one of the people who is responsible forthe mumbai mass murder attack in mumbai.The reason for kazab to be the part of that attack is that his poverty.So in some we will be mis understanded.We can say that in every crime there will be a suitable reason

 Arguments in favour of the motion:

a) Criminals deserve punishment as they are wicked. If they are not punished they will continue committing crime which will destabilise the society. Appropriate punishment will act as deterrent for the criminals to take to the path of crime.

b) If criminals are not punished for their crimes it will be an injustice to the victims.

c) Criminals deserve punishment as they cannot be reformed without being punished.

d) Since the doer of good work is rewarded with appreciation then it follows that evil doer like criminals is awarded with punishment.

e) If criminals are not punished people will not differentiate between criminal and non-criminal activities.

Arguments Against the motion:

a) To assume that criminals are wicked and accordingly deserve punishment is wrong. Criminals are the products of the society they live in. They take to crime under unavoidable circumstances like extreme poverty. So, it is an injustice to punish criminals. The conditions for committing crimes are induced by the society that instigate people to commit crimes.

b) There are several instances to show that criminals can be reformed. They are as normal as other human beings and are sensitive to sympathy and benevolence.

c) We are no longer in a primitive society. So, giving punishment to the criminals is not in tune with the norms of a civilised society.

d) Criminals do not deserve punishment as criminals are able to realise their wrong themselves in course of time.
