Our "factories" of criminals are the same prisons as are schools of crime and the educational system that expels students boring them.
On July 4, 2012, the online newspaper BBC - World (1) published a story that caught my attention.
Apparently the rulers of Brazil are especially concerned about the huge prison population, by the recidivism rate for graduates, and inhumane prison conditions.
Passed a couple of ideas that may eventually be helpful in reducing the defects classic imprisonment as rehabilitation attempt fails consistently.
One such idea is to offer inmates pedaling a stationary bicycle to generate electricity conditioned recharging accumulators (batteries) for illuminating a public square. The reward for this effort shall be made by shortening it.
The second idea seems more sophisticated and therefore more exposed to suspicion, misunderstanding, ridicule and failure.
Inmates may review to a literary, or philosophical, or scientific, or classical, every thirty days, which reduced his sentence would be 48 days per year.
Needless to say that this idea is not suitable for any inmate. To some it would be intellectually impossible and others, although it would be intellectually possible, would be too cruel.
Those who are carrying out this experiment believe that less than 20% could access this possibility.
What I want to stress is that criminals are mentally retarded in some cases could be rebalanced using grammar exercises, is to read as much for the reviews.
Our "factories" of criminals are the same prisons as crime happen to be schools and the education system in general expelling students bore you with educational systems suitable for very few students.
