Should Violent Offenders Be Given a Second Chance?


In case you missed it, rapper Chris Brown was charged and convicted of felony assault in 2009 when he beat up his then girlfriend, Rihanna. Over the last decade he has been in trouble with the law for a number of things, most recently in Paris for allegedly assaulting a woman. Since his first arrest Brown has continued to make millions of dollars, release albums and receive numerous awards. Is it okay that as a society we give people with a history violence second (and sometimes third) chances? What do you think LiveTribers?

    No second chances for aggressive behaviour. For first offence they should go through intensive anger management classes and successfully.

    He was not convicted with the assault in Paris as he was with Rihana. Chris Brown was very young at the time of the assault with Rihana and everyone, even men, can be pushed to the limit and lose their temper. Does it make it right? Of course not, but just because someone is a man, why are they made to be a monster (10 years after an incident) from retaliating? Chris Brown was a bad example for this discussion. You should have used someone such as R.Kelly. Someone who retaliates to violence, with violence can and should be forgiven, if they are genuinely sorry. A rapist, pedophile or someone that is just sadistic, on the other hand, should not have a second chance at all. They should be locked up the first offence, or even potential offence they commit.

    After a long life I have learned that behavior tendencies are deep seated and can be glossed over only to reappear eventually to someone’s detriment. Without effective thorough and probably expensive and personal counselling there will be no change. Also the person has to be willing to change and most often they are not as they feel the way they are is the way they are. They will not participate in this learning how to behave differently as they have to work hard to look at the reasons for their behavior and they really don’t want to go their. They accept the old adage “that is just the way I am, like it or lump it”. No second chances unless their is a sincere demonstration of contrition and commitment to a long process of seeing things differently.

    Let's face it; we all make mistakes. When it comes to violence, councilling is so important, as in some cases, it is possible to understand the root cause to the frustration or anger which results in violence. When a person can clearly identify what is going on in their life and why they are resulting to violence, they have a much higher chance of being rehabilitated. Someone who has no priors and is actively working towardw getting help does deserve a second chance. Someone who isn't accessing help, or has reoffended; I'm not too sure. There has to be a line where enough is enough.

    People should be given a second chance but they need support. I think a problem today is we expect others to do things (usually THE GOVERNMENT) and that does not work. We need the community - a few good people to come together to support a reforming felon, with help and support from one or two professionals. There are schemes in operation in some countries to help rehabilitate people who have done wrong but I think we need more. Those in the community who have the commitment and empathy (and not everyone does) need to be encouraged to step forward and help. At the end of the day it can be very rewarding for the helpers, and the helped.

    I really believe a person can be given a second chance if they do a special course of learning how to not beat up on people in their lives etc. Unfortunately men get the blame quite a lot of the blame but mother's can beat up on their children and get away with it . They can just keep the child home from school for some time until injuries heal and be hidden. Some children go to school knowing they have not had time to do their homework because they have to do so many jobs to take care if the home. I DEFINITELY DON'T BELIEVE CHILDREN HAVE TO GO INTO CARE BUT THEY SHOULD HAVE A TYPE OF SOCIAL SERVICES PERSON VISIT THE HOME FOR A YEAR OR SO TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE CHILDREN GET THEIR PROPER CARE. IT WOULD MORE THAN PAY FOR ITSELF THAN THE COST OF JAIL ETC. MORE PEOPLE IN THE RIGHT PLACES AND MORE HELP IN THE RIGHT PLACES.

    I personally think that once they have been charged on their first offence they shouldn't be given a second chance (because let's be honest) it always seems to happen again and again. And re-offenders never change.

    I think they should not be giving a they know the rules the judge should be held reposable for the what sentence that give the many times they re- addendum they should get them like they working doing road work were I was nursing training at Prince Henry Hospital Little Bay Sydney the prisoners use to bake bread for 3 Hospitals they would repair all Furniture and a lot more things which saved government and tax payers and they would grow Vega and fruits and they were kept busy better for them and us I know in the US they worked doing roads and they stand out in orange overalls . Just because he is known does seem they just get without doing anything but in the UK I remember Boy George doing his roadworks and the Media was all over it he didn’t mind he crime and the time and just shows He really has BALLS.

    NO. The offenders see society and the legal system as weak and to be taken advantage off. So they re-offend. So called celebrities who offend are setting an extremely bad example to kids or 'fans' who think that that behaviour is ok and that society will forgive it.

    There are occasions where a 'second' chance might be considered eg if the violence was in self defence, in response to years of abuse, bullying or to protect another person, animal or property. Every case needs consideration before deciding yes or no. However this is very different to a third, fourth, fifth or even more chances. A situation near me involves a mother who has repeatedly abused and neglected her children and yet they are turned to her and her latest live in at the time with no charges brought against her and those, children, including her new babies each year, continue to suffer despite our reports to Family Services and police intervention. Just how many babies is she allowed to continue having and how long must her innocent little ones suffer and be brought back to her time and time again?

    I believe in second chances as people can change but in saying that only if the individual is heavily punished for the act they had done wrong in the first place and proves he is a changed man. Chris brown was let off easy and that only left room for him to do it again and make continuous acts against the law and for that should not be allowed continuous fame and fortune as it’s like rewarding someone for their bad behaviours and in today’s society we have enough bad people in this world so the ones that are in the public eye and on screens for our children to see as role models should not be allowed the limelight with such criminal records.

    I reckon people with such anger problems should be dealt with accordingly. First of all violence against any human being especially a woman should be heavily punished and frowned upon in society. It just shows how insecure the person really is and shame on the law enforcement s for making people like Chris get away with it. Isn't this world suppose to move forward and create a peaceful environment. Where there is flowers, there certainly are a bunch of WEEDS...and Chris seems to be very fond of this.

    If people get away with something and never punished that gives them the okay to do it again, when it comes to be violent I don't believe they can be given a second chance until they can prove that they are a changed person, in Chris Browns case it is quite obvious he has not changed and I think it is wrong that he can continue to be famous and give kids the wrong type of role model.

    Big fine the first time along with big warning that second time it is a prison sentence as well as a big fine. We are way too soft on all offenders in Australia - a slap on the wrist, and community service - what a joke - and deport them or take away visas, aust citizenship/passport etc if they continue to offend - show them we mean business.

    Depending on the severity of the offence if it's to do with violence against women and children and the person has done it in the past then most definitely not to be given a second chance no matter what their excuse is, if they have done this more than once they will do it again

    Far too many people in the public eye commit acts of violence against women and think that by saying sorry they are fine to go out and do it all again, time the laws in this country were made much tougher. Unfortunately many younger people seem to think that this behaviour is 'acceptable' time to make sure that they know it is far from acceptable.

    Everyone deserves the opportunity for a second chance but it shouldn't just be handed to them in any circumstance. A second chance requires trust be given to somebody who has history of breaking trust. This means if someone is truly regretful for their actions they will do whatever must be done to prove they are aware of the damage they caused, own the fact they themselves through their own choices have done something wrong and these actions have negatively impacted on someone else's life. Only then is it safe and deserve to give that person a second chance as they earned it. Punishment is important for those that wrong they must be held responsible but once punished we send them back into the world with no new skills to make good decisions no new skills to deal with conflict or change or cope with stress or any of the things life will throw. We dont teach people to be better to be proud of themselves to be accountable for themselves and their actions, no we lock them up then let them go the same if not more dangerous mindset. Lets teach eachother how to be together look after eachother stop putting labels on eachother because tomorrow i will not be who i am today

    Since the offender who wilfully chose to assault another person and is proven to have done so should NOT get a second chance but take the appropriate punishment. Considering this scenario with Chris Brown, if the allegation of assault has not been proven beyond reasonable doubt, and the victim has perjured (lied) themselves, then there is little anyone can do legally but to let him go, but is Chris Brown who does have such history then assaults another person and is proven guilty, then the heaviest law book should been thrown at him.

    A violent offender, after properly tried and convicted, and served a proper sentence should be set free. repeat offenders are a different matter. the repeat offences indicate that they have not been reabilitated.

    No, violence is abhorrent especially towards wives, mothers or females of any generation. The incidents of continual aggression are documented. Too little due consideration by magistrates and courts are given to this and most sentences are little more than a slap on the wrist to the offender.

    No way, they never reform, just go underground for a while and continue the violence, usually escalating

    No. There is way too much offenders out there looking for the next victim.

    No, they should b treated the same way as their actions have delivered to others.

    No definitely not just think that the next person they attack it could be one of yours or somone that you know. They are no good to society and the people who are in it.  The very  mention of attacks that are going on currently is another loss to someone who loves them and the families.  I am so sorry for the pain that it is causing.

    Enough is enough. There is no excuse for any assault and the perpetrator should be punished. Bad home life, addiction, sad childhood are not reasons for saying "there, there" and giving them a suspended sentence.

    If after the first incident of violence the person actively repents and seeks all necessary help in order not to repeat the offence, then yes they should be given another chance. BUT if they do a violent based offence again after their supposed contrite repentance, they should be given no further chances. And face the full brunt of the law.

    Remember every chance we give these offenders is a result of ANOTHER attack on an innocent person. If that innocent person was your loved one, would you still choose to give these offenders another chance?? Surely we all agree now!

    A second chance is one thing but at which point do you say he has had his 2nd chance.

    As a firm believer of Capital Punishment I think all murderers/rapists / child killers and molesters should receive the death penalty which will probably upset the do-gooders reading this blog! Phil

    Totally agree, these type of offenders never change, they do their incarceration, attend "the programs" when locked up, get out, they are not monitored closely enough because there is no longer a monitoring group and the first chance they get they do it again and again and again. They ruin and destroy innocent children and people's life, they should receive the Death Penalty and save a lot of heartbreak and us taxpayers a lot of money.
