Does prison work?
No matter how hard we try, it has been proven by countries like Germany, England, Spain etc, that integration of different communities does not work. It's easy to say that "we should all get along with one another", but its another thing to get it working. Some groups of people will never mix. How do you suppose we make all these criminals suddenly change their ways and become good hard working citezens? It's nothing to do with the community they are in, they as a person, have known since day one that crime is unacceptable. What kind of message are we sending out to the world and the population that you have to work hard in life to get the things you want, and then someone else that hasnt tried can steal them from you without concequence, and without giving you full compensation because they "Cannot afford it"?

Does prison work?
You have to keep this simple. Rehabilitation does NOT work. I have seen people laugh while they walk out and go and do the same crime again within the next month. If they are in prison, they are not commiting crimes. Simple as that. We don't care about making him a better person, they know its wrong yet they have commited the crime. Everyone else can manage their life fine without mugging someone, they chose to. Punishment is rehabilitation. There is a reason that they are going to prison, they broke the law. Simple. No excuses. The fact that here in england we say "We have run out of room in prisons so we are making more crimes no jailable offences". What is that? Thats completely the wrong way of doing it, I would rather my tax money went into building more prisons and locking every offender up. Simple, it would cost less than the damage they cause anyway, and the fact that with the public knowing that offenders are just walking around, people actually do not feel safe walking around in their community anymore. What kind of life is that, where you are made to feel weak and powerless in your own area. You should never be made to feel worthless by anyone. The laws are there for the benifit of every other person in this country. They broke it, they lose the privilege of being in society. The fact that they get let of so easily and basically rewarded with playstations etc in prisons, means more kids are growing up, not caring because they know they will get let off.

Do games really make a better world?
That is complete and utter nosense. I am educating myself to hopefully one day being able to produce games for people to play, and not once have I thought to myself to exploit under age children with gore and violence to currupt them and make money. I do it for the entertainment that can be found within a game. The possibility that games can be more than just killing, without the bore of educational games. It is not exploitation to make a product fun that people want to use over and over. Rewarding someone for something they do is a well known way of making people enjoy what they are doing. Not just games do this, every large company in the world does this. Some use it for bad, but overall it's just entertainment. In response to 'Misuse of technology', thats laughable. It's because of games, and movies that computer companies are constantly striving to make technology better. We need faster computers, we need more power and smaller size, we wouldnt have smarthphones and powerful computers if it were not for the advancements in the computer game and film industries.
