Recommended Posts

They should be punished because they go  and steal peoples property when owner the has struggled for along time to get that thing which is stolen

I'm a police officer and I can tell you that often punishing people doesn't stop them doing crimes. We need to think of ways to help them and not just punish them.

No if someone is starving they should not be punished as they need to eat food

 

Evenif your starving you have to ask for some thing .

No they should not be punished because some people only need to be told  what is wrong and right than being punished since they do it for survival .

Yes because if they are not punished they will keep doing it. so punishing  them will act as a lesson and to the people  around him.

Maybe it depends on the type of crime. If a violent crime yes but if a none vilent crime then no?

But they all crimes so they have to be punished .

How can you punish someone if they are just trying to survive? Instead you should help them not punish them. Punishing them wont solve the problem.

 

Quit fine but not so fine .

Yes people who commit crimes due to theft for survival should be punished because its from the punishment that they will not commit the same crime again.

But do you think if someone is given what to eat, will they steal? so for me i think the government, organizations, well wishers and different organs should arise for cause so as to put an end to this if its done for survival.

A strange thing in the UK is that if you don't pay for your TV licence you can be put in jail. But in jail, you get free TV!

Not in all countries madam .

But then why do people choose to have 5 children even if they do not have enough food to eat?

It depends on the crime if it’s for food or drink to help someone live and it’s just once or twice. There should be a light punishment but then they should be offered help to find a way to get food and drink without having to steal it. If the person is using theft to make money instead of getting a job to pay for thinks they think they need to survive then the should be a greater punishment handed out. There should still be help offered to improve there lives even if they are repeat offenders.

If you keep giving them light punishments, they will continue to do the same thing throught their their life time.

Sometimes people dont have a choice in having children due to rape and where the man might have the power in the relationship.

What is the power balance in Uganda in a marriage? Is it equal or is the husband or wife more powerful normally?

Many of you want to punish people for doing crime. But what if that person would die without the food they stole?

I agree it would be better if they asked for help. But if you discover they did crime due to the circumstances - should you not be compassionate and offer help rather than punishment?

yes, you  right but sometimes when you help a thief he may think you the sauce  and  he will also steal afterwards.

If person steal food he must be punished because they steal food is not good they ask for pimission .

Either violet or non violet  theft is  theft and a crime is a crime they should be punished because they may repeat it again and cause harm to someone a particular time
