Criminals and Community Service

14 June, 2005 at 07:58 2 comments

It is just sad that community service is usually done by people as forced by law for a felony. No wonder no good ever comes out of it.

I mean, there is this guy who is a petty thief. He is caught and asked to do some kind of community service. What is supposed to happen? What is the whole logic behind it?

    The felon will be seen by every person that passes by. Perhaps this will form at least some sort of shame upon this individual and next time he won’t think about doing bad stuff?

    Or in a more poetic resolution: Maybe he/she’ll understand the beauty of helping our fellow brothers and the community instead of harming it?

    Riiight.

    Isn’t forced community service a way of getting cheap labor in exchange of getting fines removed?

    Good points.

    Only (1) seems to make any sense though. If (2), then one gets to commit a crime AND do social work which in UK is noble. If (3), one gets to commit a crime and get to gain new skills in a job.

    Proof? Those orange clothes are a punishment in itself giving more credence that this has more to do with feeling shameful…
