"Then what's the point of taking their freedom away in the first place."

To protect the public from them whilst they`re being rehabilitated.

Andrew155, thank you for that study. I am writing a research proposal for class about recidivism rates, and this will provide me with useful information.

21 years for the murder of 77 people ya they got it all figured out.

How about we send you our inmates and you can let them live like that. They'll take those objects make them into weapon and murder all the staff.

madduck, recidivism rates don't mean anything in themselves. For instance, if you`re less likely to send people to jail anyways, you will get less people going to jail. That`s Captain Obvious stuff.

I suggest you read

Recidivism rates by US state (America is diverse!), they range from the 20`s to the 50`s.

Mississippi, the poorest state, had almost a Norwegian recidivism rate from 1999-2002. Oklahoma, basically the most "redneck" state had a rate of only 26% 2004-2007. West Virginia, also a hick state, only 26%.

California at 57% though, Oregon 22% (Norway rate), Illinois 50%. There are reasons why for each.

Be a little more dynamic in your thoughts.

"...Prison is neither 100% rehabilitation, nor 100% punishment..." And do tell, how long have you spent in a prison institution?

It is a little disgusting how a vast majority of people believe that a criminal must be completely devoid of all morals, values, deserve our complete scorn and should have all their human rights suspended.

I would wager at least 65% of people on this website have done something that would land them with jail time. A lot of the time the only difference between criminal and non is the criminal got caught.

People are sent to prison as punishment, not for further punishment.

I would also hazard to say that unless you have spent time in a penal institution, you aren't even remotely qualified to comment on how easy it is in there, or a free ride, how bad the punishment is, or isn`t.
