Harsher Penalties for Violent Offenders Should violent offenders be forced to face heavier penalties for their crimes I think so And that there should also be some reforms made to our penal system The death penalty serves its purpose it kills instills fear and generally wastes tax-payers time and money I think we need stiffer penalties as an alternative to the death penalty because some of the penalties we have now are becoming ineffective because a lot of them are very expensive and because many violent offenders are repeat offenders When a violent crime is committed after the court proceedings are over and if the accused is found guilty the jury may rule that the criminal should be incarcerated for life In which case the criminal is brought to a penitentiary given a home food clothing and possibly a job I realize that there are people out there who believe that the system we are currently using is acceptable In which case they may argue that the criminals of today are just misguided and misunderstood They are the ones who want less crime and a hardly demeaning lifestyle for criminals What is the point of having a life sentence We have people who have killed in cold blood sitting in jail to rot This makes me think Why should a criminal live better than I am We give the criminals of today too much credit and not enough hard time I would give them enough food to live on a cot toilet and sink if more people could read the college essay I read before writing this they would understand The writer says in his paper that even though the death penalty is used in a state there is not usually a change in the crime rate This means that no one is afraid of it If we would start punishing criminals with punishments other than death or a life sentence or two
