Recently it was shown that lots of criminals commit more crimes after they serve their time in prison. There are several reasons that led them to do such act and some measures to be taken to mitigate this problem that will be explained in the following paragraphs.
To begin with, it is difficult for the offenders to surmount the languished time they were locked away in jails, so they seek revenge. For example, a murderer might stock the officer who caught him and hurt him or his family members. Moreover, criminals are persecuted by society for what they have done which results in being rejected even if they atone for their past sins. To elaborate, drunk drivers who kill other people while driving their cars obliviously, struggle to get accepted by their community after they are absolved and try to corroborate for their repentance.
To overcome this problem, many actions can be taken by both, society and the offenders. First, it is important to engage the people who get released from prisons in support groups to interact with people who had similar experiences. For instance, design groups for killers in which they can express their feelings and get guidance during their recovery time. Another point is that to conduct public awareness campaigns that teach public people how to accept criminals and treat them well after languishing in prisons. To explain, providing general lectures and conferences about how to treat such people and not to reproach them for what they committed in the past.
In conclusion, committing crimes by offenders after their first crime is a huge problem that can be solved by addressing the reasons, seeking help and providing the support needed.
