 debate in favour of c riminals are wicked and deserve punishment

Akshita Viswan From Gems Our Own Indian School, added an answer, on 3/12/11

 Debate:

When I am walking suddenly someone comes and asks me for money pointing a Gun at me, I say 'please I don't have any', that Idiut shoots me in the Leg and runs away. 

After 2 weeks in Hospital, I fear walking on the roads alone, actually I will never walk again on roads alone. 

This person is a Criminal! 'Criminal' is a person who commits some crime without thinking what consequences may be faced by one who is victim of a Crime.

Should a person like that be Spared? What is the punishment for causing so much suffering to me? Yes, My Friends I am talking for the motion 'Criminals are wicked and should be punished' 

A wrong done under any circumstances is a wrong. A poor person who wants to give food to his son will commit robbery or murder, If this poor man murders a young man just for money should he be left away? Who has given him right to harm others because he is in need? Would it not be better if a poor person just eat something from a Garbage can?

(remaining you fill)

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 destabilize 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.

No one becomes a criminal unless and until the situation favours so. Situation makes someone a criminal and someone a priest. So before deciding that someone is wicked and deserves punishment we should first look at the background of the crime. Thee should be justice and a second chance for all.

Before punishing the criminals the reason of their crime should be overlooked.this should be also ensured that if they doing it for someone else or not.they should be punished but before that it should be made clear that the man for whom the crime had been done should be punished...also this should be ensured that whether they have done it or anyone else had done this using their name....after clearing all this the man should be wicked or punished if he deserves

A person do the Crime as he is having some problems. Mindset of Criminals can be changed by doing various reformation. A good example is about the story of Lord buddha were a Cruel Man called Angulimal was changed into his disciple by the Lord Buddha's virtue. Earlier Angulimal was a very fury and cruel man who cuts the fingers of all the visitors who went through his Jungle. Later he was changed in a man of Compassion by Lord Buddha's Teaching. So my point we should treat the Criminals like Human being not like Animals. If we been cruel to the Criminals then they will never get Changed. So let be teach the meaning of life then sure they will be changed. As they too have the heart to love.
