Prison

Regular people probably don’t expect to land in prison, but some innocent people are also locked up in prison. Keep in mind that you can end up in prison.

It might be a good idea to improve that system.

People in prison use resources, they need food. Food costs money and humans produce waste, which is bad for the Earth. This might sound a bit weird, but it helps you to understand my views.

Prison is not a solution

You can lock up people in a building, but this does not help most people. In fact, I think that it can do the opposite.

It is inhuman too. It is not a healthy place although some prisons are much better than they were in the past. There is some improvement.

The world isn’t fair

There are people who killed others which never had to be in prison. It still happens more often than you would think. This obviously isn’t the only unfair thing out there.

Death of Caylee Anthony

You might have heard about Casey Anthony, who likely killed her daughter. She only had to do one year in jail and was not declared guilty, but I do think that she changed.

The following YouTube video is pretty good in my opinion:

Solutions

People should get help or maybe get killed. Yes, I am not completely against the death penalty. I will mention why on this page.

You want to treat prisoners. Remember, a prisoner is still a person, even murderers are. Murders are just sick people, which possibly can be cured.

People should try to learn how criminals work. I know that there are organizations which do that (Behavioral Science Unit). A better solution than prison is needed.

Death penalty

Is it a solution?

I don’t think that the death penalty is terrible. Sure, you shouldn’t just play with lives, but I rather would like some extreme murderer to die than out there killing. Obviously, try to cure them first.

Besides that, the prison system really sucks. You don’t want to be there. I think that some people in prison actually would want death. Just locking people up is not a solution.

The difficult thing about the death penalty is that innocent people can die. That should be avoided, but the world isn’t fair, sadly. I do think that is a better solution than just locking people up though.

Not convinced?

Well, if you are not convinced, imagine this.

Your daughter was tortured and raped for multiple days, and then murdered. The murderers are walking out freely after almost no jail time.

You wouldn’t want that to happen, right? You could think that this can’t happen to you, but it can. I think that you would prefer those people to die in that case.

I am going to mention one of the most terrible cases I know of. The murder of Junko Furuta. There are more cases, which will make you think or care.

Junko Furuta

She never had a chance at life. She was 17 years old when she got kidnapped by some people. She got tortured and raped for 40 days. They murdered her after 40 days. The full story is much worse and has more details.

The murderers were protected because they were young. They could get a maximum sentence of 20 years. Most of them got less.

Furuta’s mother reportedly had a mental breakdown, which required psychiatric treatment.

One of murderers served eight years and got arrested for assaulting someone, five years after release. His mother vandalised Furuta’s grave, claiming that Furuta ruined her son’s life.

Another one of the released murderers attempted murder in 2018.

You can lookup this case if you want to know more details.

Thanks

I hope that you understand my opinion about prison and the death penalty after reading this. Thanks for taking some time to read this!

Have a good day or night, and good luck! You never know what could happen. I hope that my thoughts don’t make you depressed.

I know that my mindset isn’t always the most positive one, but I am happy that I have the chance to live. Not everyone gets that chance. Enjoy the small things and try to be happy.
