Reoffending adults only happens because being put into prison for minor offences is an institution in itself and, provides conditioning for prisoners to be set free only to break the law once more, merely because they have been conditioned to do so, not by the prison itself, but by other detainee’s whom they’re associated with whilst in prison.
The solution is not to obstruct our prison system, but to rehabilitate these youngsters outside the prison system because prevention is better than cure.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson is giving nearly £2 million in money for an avant-garde project to confront adult reoffending, but what about teenagers who have been put into prison for minor offences?
For the most part, adults reoffending, will go on to reoffend because they’ve been in the system way too long, when something should have been put into place long before this.
It was said that Boris Johnson has given the money, making it sound like he personally put his money into this enterprise. Let’s get this straight, he doesn’t put any of his wealth into any enterprise, but there’s an £18 million kitty that the Mayor’s Office has for Policing and Crime that has been assigned to assist boroughs to tackle crime.
The programme will centre on neglected groups of criminals who serve short prison terms and, who presently receive no official post release help.
Of course, young offenders and adult offenders should have assistance after they depart from the prison establishment because if they don’t, it will only result in them to reoffend once more so that they can feed and clothe themselves, as well as their families because they can’t sustain themselves on fresh air alone.
There are numerous causes why people break the law in the first place and, it’s not that they go out there to specifically do any harm, but it may be because they have a learning disability and, can’t find work, or an employer that is prepared to take them on; consequently, they end up with extremely low self esteem, which in the long term has an effect on them and, their families, causing them to perpetrate an offence.
Each short term offender will be supplied with a key worker who will give uninterrupted assistance from sentencing, to their stay in prison and, through to their release and, the scheme target is to lessen re-conviction percentages for the detainee with a lesser sentence.
It sounds more like they’re going on vacation, rather than being sentenced because they have been declared a nuisance to the community because most of these sentences are because we can’t confront gangs, or lessen brutality against women and children and, anti social behaviour.
In spite of the fact, if we looked back to when things were different, brute force against women and children was an enormous problem, but it was swept under the rug, since a man was considered to be the man of the house and, if he gave his wife a good beating, or the children, it was acceptable behaviour.
Women put up with this type of behaviour previously because there was no such thing as Social Security and, if a women left with her children; she had nowhere to go, because in many cases these families would not put a roof over their heads because it was just something women were meant to put up with.
If a child was abused or sexually assaulted by a family member, then they were scolded for it and, it was said that they were telling a whopper, or it was believed that they were fibbing, perhaps to get attention, which was regularly not the case.
Anti social behaviour became additionally noticeable in the late 1990’s and, it unquestionably became troublesome when children were set free to do as they wanted because the government and Social Services asserted that it was against the law to reprimand your child, allowing children a free leadership and, to do what gratified them.
Pleasure in a child’s life was covered with anti social behaviour for numerous reasons. Punishment for children had been taken away and, children celebrated the sense of being able to do as they pleased and, it motivated them in being aware that their parents could do nothing about it because if they did, the child would then intimidate the parents by saying that they would telephone Social Services.
Children were striking out at their parents as well as friends, family and the general public and, as they done so, this set off a succession of occurrences that shadowed them.
How far do will we go before a parent has no rights over their own child because after all, women are only a cocoon for a living organism, a breeding ground for the embryonic foetus, up till such time it’s born, but as soon as that progeny is born, the government undeniably takes over.
Petty offenders are periodically and sporadically impelled by a network of circumstances. The majority of the time it’s not because they want to carry out the offence, it’s because circumstances force them to.
Of course, not every single circumstance is identical and, it would be unjust to tar everyone with the selfsame brush, which is more than often the case.
There is always a reason why someone does something, there is never not a cause, but what we have to look at, is that whatever the cause, it’s better to put a stop to it before it has grown to such an amount, that in the end, the person who’s life it’s intruded on has to be locked away.
