The main roots of recidivism

 

This post is a practice of Ielts essay writing which I really like and think it is a very meaningful piece of writing since its practical aspect. Therefore, I think I should public it in my blog, that I hope it will benefit someone.

 

Question:
Many criminals reoffend after they have been punished.
Why do some people continue to commit crime after they have been punished, and what measures can be taken to tackle this problems?

 

Everyone desires to have a peaceful life with their family, however, many former inmates recidivate and relapse into the boring life requiring to struggle every moment to alive in prison. In this essay, I will identify reasons of reoffence and propose solutions for those.

First of all, the most prevalent difficulty for ex-prisoners reintegrate back into society is their jobs which are the most necessary living mean. Lacking social demanding jobs due to long imprisonment leads to ex-offenders’ unemployment which forces them to commit crimes again to get money for surviving. Secondly, a willingness of overcoming difficulties keeps a key role to determine if ex-prisoners re-break the law or not. After a period of staying behind the bars and with such the rapid change of our society, former inmates face many difficulties in their new lives such as finding jobs, how to make new good friends, and so on. Everything may easy and normal for us but not for them, which causes relapsing into criminal behavior of the ones who lack strong determination.

However, there are some solutions helping fresh releasing from the jail people integrate back into society, and as my supposition, the government keeps the key role of executing those. Firstly, instead of forcing prisoners to work hard to make money such as making bricks or exploiting stone, the government should train them skillful and their hometowns’ needed jobs such as construction, motorbike or car repair, haircut, and so on. Those are helpful for them to get a mean of living in our society. Secondly, not only working, in prisons, the government should run programs which encourage learning and improving human nature for prisoners. The programs may be setting up libraries, play performance, working and sporting competition. Those activities will help them widen knowledge, improve skills, love the life, and enforce their willingness to overcome difficulties which is the most important and essential merit when released.

In conclusion, don’t have practical jobs and fear of facing difficulties are the main problems that cause reoffence for inmates. Therefore, job training and difficulty struggling skill improvement programs are good solutions that need to apply for whom bearing detained punishments.
