The objective of incarcerating people is to punish wrongdoers and to reduce the harm done by criminals. While prisons undoubtedly meet this objective, the prison system is far from being perfect and leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Should prisons be reserved only for the worst offenders? How long should sentences be? Will short sentences deter would-be criminals just as effectively as long sentences? Should low-level criminals be separated from high-level prisoners? And most importantly, what can be done to reduce crime and reoffending rates?
