Somepeople who have been in prison become good citizens in later life. Some peoplethink that they are the best people to talk to school students about the dangersof committing crime.
Towhat extent do you agree or disagree?
Reformed prisonershave a unique take on the consequences of criminal activity and it goes withoutsaying that they are in a good position to warn young people of theconsequences of a life of crime. Nonetheless, there are other individuals andinterest groups also in a position of authority to issue similar warnings.
Ex-convicts understand fully what prison lifeis like and can explain to potential juvenile delinquents the awful, life-longcosts of getting involved in criminal activity at a young age. Prison life inmany countries is harsh and recidivism rates among ex-convicts are high in manyareas. As a result, those who enter prison are often doomed to re-offend upontheir release, often becoming involved in more serious crimes, thus affectingtheir chances of re-assimilating into society at a later date. In that sense,ex-criminals are surely well-placed to warn of the dangers of this.
Even so, warnings from ex-convicts about theperils of a criminal life are no substitute for a stable upbringing and a goodeducation. The majority of those who commit criminal acts come from troubledfamilies and lack access to basic opportunities. In that sense, it is farbetter for young people to be brought up by responsible parents and receiveaccess to education opportunities which will benefit them in later life.
In conclusion, while it is certainly true thatyoung people will benefit from the counsel of ex-convicts, such counsel is noadequate replacement for a decent upbringing in preventing young people fromengaging in criminal activity.
