Good day moderator
panel of judges
adjudicators
fellow contestants
and to the viewers
Am thollulope representing the university of Ibadan . I speak for the notion "The judiciary ,criminal proceedings and judgement. Do jail terms
usually serve as a deterrent or is absolute rehabilitation a better option?
First and foremost, according to vocabulary.com,deterrent is a means of preventing one from doing something , on the other hand rehabilitation means the act of restoring something to its normal state.
The concept of jail terms signals clearly that certain conducts are wrong.
This shows an offender wrong doing and prevents him from repeating such actions .the concept of jail terms brings punishment and absolute solution to criminal.the concept of rehabilitation resets on the assumption that criminal acts is caused by certain factors . come to think of it, how will rape, corruption and terrorism be by certain factor ,rehabilitationdoes not serve as the best for offenders. If crime were a matter of free choices ,then there would be nothing within particular individuals to be fixed.
In developed countries , corruption is a grave offense and these jail terms has immensely reduced the rate of such because it serves as a lesson for others. can rehabilitation do such ? it will only breed more criminals.
For victims and citizens , jail terms shows that there is justice. how will one be rehabilitated for killing my brother because he has excuses. crimes isn't pathology and coincidental. it shows that no matter the class , position and wealth ,nobody is above the law.
Jail terms shows equality and capability of the judicial .
In conclusion, will my opponent feel of rehabilitating a criminal and knowing human decisions arent factorised
Thanks

THE JUDICIARY AND CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS AND JUDGEMENTS: DO JAIL TERMS ACTIALLY SERVE AS A DETTERENT OR IS ABSOLUTE REHABILITATION A BETTER OPTION?

'My object all sublime I shall achieve in time to let the punishment fit the crime.' - The Mikado.
' An eye for an eye will not make the world all go blind but it will make us conscious of our neighbours eyes.'

The importance of criminal justice to the smooth running of any society cannot be overemphasized. Indeed an effective criminal justice is regarded by many as fundamental to the maintenance of law and order. The fundamental aim of punishment is not to inflict suffering on offenders[that still does not mean that sufferings cannot be inflicted if need be] but to reassert the existence of the moral order that governs human life, that moral order emphasises the connections between justice, right relationships and seeking after community well-being. Before I proceed any further, I will give honour to whom it is due. All plaudits to the owner of Nairaland, Mr Oluwaseun Osewa, who had given us all the opportunity and medium to express ourselves and also had given us the platform to stage this debate. Good evening to our ever-zealous coordinators, the incorruptible Judges, intelligent co-debaters, intellectuals, ever-attentive readers and audience. All protocols duly observed. I am Aysuccess99, a representative of the prestigious University of Ibadan, the First and the Best. I take stance of the motion that: Jail terms serves as deterrent to crime and that rehabilitation is not a better option. It is expedient to define some key terms in our topic. Rehabilitation may be defined as planned intervention that attempts to change or alter whatever aspects that causes the delinquents criminality[that is, interpersonal relationships, behavior, addiction, attitude and cognitive processes] and to reduce the likelihood of recidivism[rates at which released convicts commit a subsequent crime and are convicted]. Deterrence is that which is repugnant that neither the punished offender nor others will commit the crime in the future. It is unarguably true that ever since our romance with history, crime has been with us and when taken to the extreme it becomes glaring that it is almost a product of our society. There is no question that jail terms is seen as severe punishment for most people. The critical question is whether it is an effective punishment for potential offenders.
Punishing offenders with jail terms will cause them not to return to crime because they will have been taught that crime does not pay. Offenders are assume to be rational in that increasing the cost of crime, more certain penalties such as sentencing one to jail for some number of years will cause offenders to choose to 'go straight up' out of fear that future criminality will prove too painful, and as such will make other people in the society refrain from crime because they witness offenders punishment and fear suffering a similar fate. Our main focus is not only on the convicted criminal but it is on citizens outside and potential offenders such that, such people will not want to involve themselves in criminal activities so as not to get caught and convicted in jail and suffer same fate as other offenders. I will like to use Nigeria as a case study. Nigeria is said to be among the corrupt nations of the world whereby all forms of crime and vices takes their root. This has brought shame to our country and has affected our economy in such a way that investors are afraid to invest in a crime-haven nation. The question we should be able to answer is, what measures can we take to curb this menace? Can we say jail terms serves as deterrent to crimes or should we consider rehabilitation as a better option? I stand to opine that jail terms will serve as deterrent to crimes and help us curb this menace compared to rehabilitation. People may say that most people that go to jail do not change when they are out of jail, this is not true. If one is privilege to meet an ex-convict and ask him whether he would wish to go back to jail, his answer will surely be NO! This shows that prison is not a place to be for humans and as such it will prevent other people from involving themselves in criminal activities.
Rehabilitation attempts to change or otherwise improve offenders. By treating offenders, they 'hope' to give them the attitudes and skills to avoid crime and live a productive life. No doubt that this innovation is pretty good but the issue now is that this attempt to help offenders exposes rehabilitation to the charge that it coddles criminals. This can be probably seen as an evasion of punishment and as such does not deter the public from committing crimes as they know quite well that they will not need to suffer much physical pain and can enjoy psychological therapy. Also, the prisoners may not understand the severity of their crimes when they did not experience any punishment and thus, will give optimum hope to potential or future offenders that if they involve themselves in criminal activities, they will probably also go through rehabilitation programs and after the possible treatment, they will get freed. This act will not only increase crime rate but it will make criminals justified by their action and see no wrong in what they did. The rehabilitation model will only make sense only if criminal behavior is caused and not merely a free willed, rational choice. The purpose of jail terms is to inflict a punishment on the offender so that the harm the offender has caused will be paid back and the scales of justice balanced. This is justified because the individual used his or her free will to choose to break the law.
In conclusion, I am not advocating that rehabilitation programs for criminals is not good but I am of the opinion that such rehabilitation programs only concentrate on the individual criminals and thus, does not deter crime to a large extent. We cannot just inject huge amount of money into rehabilitation for individual offenders and yet still achieve minimal result in the decrease in crime rates. No matter how promising rehabilitation may seem to be, we must all know that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior and from this perspective, it is reasonable to attempt to prevent crime by preventing known offenders from continuing their criminal behaviors by being sentenced to jail and as such serve as deterrence to future or potential offenders. We should all know and be convinced that rehabilitation is effective in reducing the criminal behavior of at least some offenders and not all offenders, not to talk of deterring a large number of people from criminal activities. Thank you.
