build more prisons

Comment 6th July 2010

Priosn works.  There has to be an ultimate deterrent for those who ignore all the lesser penalties leading up to imprisonment.  Once fines and community penalties have been tried and they are still offending then there has to be a final outcome.  Prisons are excellent at helping with problems such as drug or alcolhol addiction and has some good results. They also support ex-prisoners with housing, employment etc.

Why does this matter?

The press concentrates on the negative side of imprisonment but I have seen that a period of imprisonment is a good thing especially for people with disordered lives who will never be able to get out of the downward spiral themselves.
