Should criminals be sent to prison or should they do something else as a punishment? Explain your opinion and give your reason.
You should write at least 250 words. You should use your own ideas of knowledge and experience and support your arguments with examples and relevant evidence.
In recent years, a growing number of people have begun to challenge against the existing practice of sending criminals to prison. They argue that the law offenders should be punished to do something for the public. In my opinion, however, they should be locked up in prisons.
First of all, it can ensure a safe and comfortable living environment to the law-abiding citizens. For criminals like thieves, robbers, rapists or even murderers, it is improper or even dangerous to let them out of jails, because they still pose threat to our society. Just as an old saying goes, Mercy to the criminal may be cruelty to the people.
