I don’t think criminals think about the consequences. Being in jail longer isn’t going to do much.
Joseph Pua, student, undeclared major
Yeah it will reduce crime. Although we make these rules a lot depends on the legal counsel of the accused.
Shawn Watson, high school student
No, not really. They’re often back out on the street before they get the penalties because of the justice system.
Susan Manipol, homemaker
Yes. In order for a criminal to not do it again they should be punished
David Munroe, training consultant
Can’t hurt. Your hardcore criminals wouldn’t be on the street. They should be doing something in there though; getting trained and it should be mandatory.
