Do the crime serve the time mean that if you commit a crime you should expect to be punished. Firstly what does crime mean? As Wikipedia says Crime is the breaking of rules or laws for which some government can ultimately prescribe a conviction.
Each country in the world has some social problems which need to be fixed. But the problem that exists in all countries is crime. Let`s look at some causes of crime.
One of the significant causes is unemployment. Because people do not have a stable job which helps them to pay everything in their lives such as foods, clothes, so they can not improve their lives. As a result, although something is unlawful, they must do to have money. For example, a father needs to give tuition fees for his child but he is an unemployed; therefore, he steals everyone's money. This cause more people becoming criminals.
The second cause is migration from rural are to urban are. Some people consider that they can have a good life in urban areas. However, some people do not have knowledge and skills to do anything so they cannot adapt with new environment. As a result, they are seduced easily to do unlawful actions. For instance, some naive girls from rural areas to urban areas, they are easily cheated to become bad girls which is a kinds of crime. The problem of juvenile crime is one of the burning problems of our time. Psychologists, sociologists can infinitely list the causes of juvenile crime, but while thinking about this problem. For example, one of the main reasons is the influence of the family. A lot depends on the relationships with parents. Certainly, they influence the teenagers. It is common knowledge that educational level affects the offender`s personality. In most cases, information environment influences the behavior of teenagers. Mass media deliberately bring up the tendency to crimes in children.
If do not punish people for their crime it will be normal thing in our life. People should be more responsible for their actions not only to the family but also to the society. But the government should be rightful to offender and should look to all reasons and facts that prompted him to do crime. I think to minimize crime all people should understand the seriousness of this problem and should be more honest to each other and try to help each other not to substitutive each other. If we want to live in good society we should start with ourselves. It is better to prevent crimes than to punish them. The end of punishment, therefore, is no other than to prevent the criminal from doing further injury to society, and to prevent others from committing the like offence. Such punishments, therefore, and such a mode of inflicting them, ought to be chosen, as will make the strongest and most lasting impressions on the minds of others, with the least torment to the body of the criminal.
