Retribution and Correctional system

Retribution   calls   for   improvement in many countries like the U.S due to the heightening crime levels.  Citizens are horrified, especially the common man. They  are  in  fear  they  might  fall  victims  of  crime  and  are crying  to  the  government  for  their  pleas  to  be  heeded. A lot  of  people  have  suffered  loss  of  their  loved  ones, damage of property,  to mention but a few. I believe criminals must  suffer  for  their  shortcomings behaviors (Waldron, Quarles, McElreath, Waldron, & Milstein, 2009). Stiff penalties such as imprisonment are some of the fair punishment that ought to be implemented. It is for some of these reasons that countries like U.S should aim at establishing a complete and reliable for the purpose of improving prison routines. 

Infliction  of  retribution  signals  the  criminals  in  hiding   which  is  essential  in  reducing  crime  rates. Criminals  are  undoubtedly  not  fascinated  with  this  and  they  might  end  up  choosing  their  life. It  is  always  tasking  for  them  to  keep  hiding  and  at  some  point  they  will  need  freedom. They  will  only meet  this  by  leaving  their  crime  world  or  giving  themselves  up. In  my  opinion, long  sentences  and  tough  sentencing  laws  are  not  enough (Waldron, Quarles, McElreath, Waldron, & Milstein, 2009). In  my  opinion   some  crimes  are  way  too  heavy   leaving  very  stiff  penalties  the  only  choice. Hardened  criminals  have  a  long  chain  of  partnership  hence  hard  sentencing  laws  might  not  work  on  them  due  to  backup  from  their  partners. Retribution ends up as the only remedy. 

I  view  this  as  an  important  aid  in  disabling  partnerships  due  to  absence  of  able  and  resourceful  leaders. Retribution  should  be  advanced  to  make  our  nations  better  and  conducive  allowing  citizens  to  freely  express  their  freedom. Some  people  are  subjected  to  fear  due  to  threats  from  criminals. It is just when every citizen enjoys their space.
