Social and Criminal Justice 2
I wrote in my first hub on this issue, Social and Criminal Justice, about the social issues of this country in dealing with justice in our society toward criminals. I found as I researched information on this subject that a quality education had not always been available for everyone here in America. At the beginning of these United States there were only 13 colonies. We weren't the nation we are today. Many people had to achieve their right to an education in spite of living here in America. Our society has come a long way in educating it's citizens through our education system. It has been said that a lack of education is a contributor to crime. That's why I wrote about the various public education formats. One can always learn and grow by getting as much education as possible. Studies focusing on wage earners who have received formal education (college graduates) show higher earnings for them compared to those who haven't. Some people will inevitably go into the criminal justice system for whatever reason. I will focus on the rehabilitating of those in correctional facilities today.

Jail is where a suspect is placed after being arrested by the police. He is placed in custody of the jail system. One can post bond in order to obtain temporary freedom. Once bail is set and after its is paid the suspect is 'free' to await trial or a hearing in order to determine guilt or innocence. If he's convicted (found guilty), he is sentenced to a prison. In lieu of prison or in exchange for a lighter sentence, there is another choice: House arrest. House arrest is when one wears a monitor around the ankle in order to keep track of a convict as he or she serves the sentence away from the correctional facility.
In any case, this person serves a sentence based on the nature of the crime (s) committed. There are rehab programs and other programs such as Adult literacy and GED classes that are offered. Convicted criminals can learn values they didn't know before hand and put them into practice. Yes, the prisoner must pay his debt to society, however, rehabilitation empowers those who want to do better with their lives. Old habit = criminal activity. New habit = productive life. As stated before, a lack of education is a contributor to crime. Continued lack, continued criminal activity. These programs are intended to make change possible.
Since there is no freedom without responsibility, it is desirable for them to have the necessary skills to handle responsibility in society when released.

Education has a way of dealing with the mind of an individual. We were to learn early in life how to get along with others and to become productive members of society. This however, does little for the spiritual or emotional development of individuals. Some of us have missed out on this kind of support.

Last but not least
It makes more sense to release criminals back into society after giving them the appropriate treatment. Punishment does little for some people and straightens out others. We need to find and fix these problems in order to maintain a civilized society.
