Some people who have been in prison become good citizens in later life. Some people think that they are the best people to talk to school students about the dangers of committing crime.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Reformed prisoners have a unique take on the consequences of criminal activity and it goes without saying that they are in a good position to warn young people of the consequences of a life of crime. Nonetheless, there are other individuals and interest groups also in a position of authority to issue similar warnings.
Ex-convicts understand fully what prison life is like and can explain to potential juvenile delinquents the awful, life-long costs of getting involved in criminal activity at a young age. Prison life in many countries is harsh and recidivism rates among ex-convicts are high in many areas. As a result, those who enter prison are often doomed to re-offend upon their release, often becoming involved in more serious crimes, thus affecting their 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 the perils of a criminal life are no substitute for a stable upbringing and a good education. The majority of those who commit criminal acts come from troubled families and lack access to basic opportunities. In that sense, it is far better for young people to be brought up by responsible parents and receive access to education opportunities which will benefit them in later life.
In conclusion, while it is certainly true that young people will benefit from the counsel of ex-convicts, such counsel is no adequate replacement for a decent upbringing in preventing young people from engaging in criminal activity.
