Public insecurity worsens because stigmatize offenders need to strengthen our pleasant feeling that we are very honest.
Think of something known , but from another point of visa.
A person is initiated into crime robbing a passerby money and phone.
He feels very bad about the violence of the situation, for the spoil , so helpless and felt convinced that the justice of his country may never discover who his attacker , because only 30% clear crimes .
The victim arrives home desolate , anguished relatives around him, embrace him, pet him and he begins to regain his hope in man .
However, from that terrible accident , something inside of each of the members of that household , extended by friends , colleagues and acquaintances , I have changed : the prevailing mood is resentment, revenge a fierce desire for justice , including exemplary punishment and , more discreetly , the desire that never circulate offender streets .
I say this more directly : in the heart of those ideas emerge citizens exemplary punishment , life imprisonment and the death penalty .
Imagine that this criminal is so unlucky to be caught , tried and sentenced to a prison within a prison .
As the crime was the first to graduate from jail will perfected , will be a seasoned criminal , informed, full of new ideas, probably associated , through strong links to other criminals who will become your family.
In short, we have gained a criminal specialist , BUT , and this is serious , non - offender criminals need him to unconsciously reinforce our pleasant feeling that we are very honest .
