Yes, and we should provide more rehabilitation programs for prisoners

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...8yrs

Yes, provided a strict psychological evaluation shows they are no longer a threat to society

There are too many instances where poor, uneducated, lose when having a bad lawyer appointed to them. Also bad 'expert' witness testimony, poor police investigation, many mitigating circumstances have proven lately [cops lying in court]. Life is precious, to take one is a tragedy, to take two and be wrong has led to a shrug of the shoulders from authority. Let the majority decide.

Reinstate forced labor so they at least offset the cost of internment to the taxpayer.

perhaps, but ending jails is a must. it is inhumane. these people need mental health help, not physical and mental torture. even if they are insane and need to be strapped down 24/7, jail conditions are medieval and horrible.

@5393P4Vfrom British Columbia  answered…2yrs

Prisoners are human too. A society that run charties for animal welfare should do treat a human with compassion.

@4RHKNK8from Quebec  answered…2yrs

No. I think the entire parole system needs to be looked at. Sentences are too lenient and criminals are released too soon. Parole should be considered only for exceptionally well adjusted and productive inmates not people given life sentences. Life sentences should be for life, you die in prison.

@54B7FZYfrom Yukon Territory  answered…2yrs

yes BUT death penalty should be brought back for heinous crimes even if under influence of a substance. Mental illness should not ever be an excuse in these crimes.

@4X9MSY3from Ontario  answered…2yrs

prison systems don't help our community we shouldn't try to forget the problem and lock humans away, but rather enforce rehabilitation programs not "correctional" systems

@97YCNT9People’s Partyfrom Nova Scotia  answered…1wk

It depends on the situation. Multiple people are convinced of crimes they didn't commit. Our system isn't reliable enough.

@97XPSPXfrom British Columbia  answered…2wks

The family should get to decide and they must pass multiple mental health checks. Have a convict registry public and must check in with a phycoyoschrost.

@97XH43Hfrom Ontario  answered…2wks

@97WSTMLfrom Ontario  answered…2wks

no but after a while with rehabilitation to a lower security prison so inmates aren't as bad when they are older

@97WPXL8from Ontario  answered…2wks

Reinstate the death penalty for heinous crimes. Parole should be available for only those who fully deserve it, Death penalty shall also be avoided if the criminal has repented against his sins religiously.

@97W5664from Nova Scotia  answered…2wks

if you take a life you should be behind bars for the rest of your life.

@97TD5G7from Ontario  answered…2wks

Maybe after 25 years, followed by a strict psychological evaluation.

@97T4JZCConservativefrom Ontario  answered…2wks

Yes, provided a strict psychological evaluation shows they are no longer a threat to society and and we should provide more rehabilitation programs for prisoners

@97NRTW8from Ontario  answered…3wks

Would need extensive supervision. If crimes are recommitted at the same degree. Death penalty would be the solution there after.

It depends on how bad the murder details and mental state of the prisoner are

@978VHJKfrom Newfoundland  answered…4wks

Absolutely not, the person has committed the worst thing one can do which is take another person's life. For first and second degree murder, their sentence should life without parole. For third degree murder, which is manslaughter, they should be sentenced to 15 years with a chance of parole and provided a strict psychological evaluation that shows they're no longer a threat to society and will in fact not commit the worst crime one can commit, murder/manslaughter, ever again.

@977S66Gfrom Manitoba  answered…4wks

Yes but it depends on the situation of the murder and how greusome it was.

@977RWL2New Democraticfrom Manitoba  answered…4wks

@976LMFLfrom Ontario  answered…4wks

The death penalty is the harshest of punishments, therefore it should only be implemented if prisoners of first degree murder show no remorse, guilt or regret. If they do, they should be not let out until after 25 years.

@975XJCGfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

I think it depends on why the murder was committed. if it is a justifiable reason then yes but if there was not a justifiable reason then no.

@97529D2from Nova Scotia  answered…1mo

@972G5M7from Ontario  answered…1mo
