There is a common philosophy among society that if a person has committed a crime and have done their time in jail and paid their debt to society, that reentering that same society should not be a problem, seeing they have been rehabilitated. This philosophy is merely a floating fabrication and basically non-existent in practice.

However, there is a such thing as a habitual criminal; people who have a criminal mind and cannot seem to live an honest life. They commit the most heinous crimes such as murder, rape, robbery and physical abuse of others on an on-going bases, and they belong in prison. But there are many others who have been caught up in criminal activity either out of passion, peer pressure, intoxication or simple foolishness, that deserve the rights to this philosophy.

The art of knowing the difference and making the punishment fit the crime has been brushed aside by the judicial system. Many in and out of the criminal justice system have discovered a way to make a profit from the criminal minded and from the foolish as well. They have literally created a business model that thrives off the misfortunes of the general public.

Not only have they streamlined the prison industrial complex and the revolving doors in and out of it, but they have laid the foundation of an almost impossible means to reenter society. In essence, they have instituted social stigmas that have become extremely difficult to overcome once a person has paid their debt to society.

Recently released prisoners and people with criminal records face a range of social and economic obstacles that can make it challenging for them to reintegrate into society. Individuals with criminal records often face societal stigma, which can lead to discrimination in various aspects of their lives. This includes difficulties in finding employment, housing, and reestablishing social relationships.


Having a criminal record can hinder a person’s ability to begin again and have a normal life. From convicted murderers to small amounts of drug possession. The conviction, no matter the reason or whether they were innocent or not, follows them throughout their lives with no legitimate or legal recourse to removing the stigmas. Applying for jobs, housing, bank accounts or enrolling in school are all but off limits unless they know someone who are truly concerned.

High levels of unemployment, lack of education and work skills along with extensive background checks reveal to society’s gatekeepers the applicant’s worth in life and they turn away people as soon as they know their criminal history. There is no erasure to a criminal past. Maybe some deserve this treatment, but there are many who earnestly want to do better and have turned from any forms of criminality.

In addition to the discrimination, court fines, legal fees, child support payments, and increased debt make it nearly economically impossible for a reentry subject to get financially caught up to a normal life if they cannot get a job, a place to live, or have the necessary skills to even start a business. So, many people end up homeless, which increases their risk of returning to a criminal life.

The social service systems, also, reject many ex-felons and they have limited access to social services, mental health treatment, and substance abuse programs that could help them successfully reintegrate into society. The strains of incarceration can disrupt family relationships and community ties, making it difficult for individuals to rebuild these crucial support networks after release.

Many legal barriers also restrict individuals with criminal records with limitations on voting rights, firearm ownership, or eligibility for certain government assistance programs. In addition, former prisoners may face challenges in accessing adequate healthcare, including mental health and addiction treatment services. These healthcare disparities can have a significant impact on their overall well-being and ability to reintegrate.

The combination of these obstacles often increases the risk of recidivism (re-offending) among people with criminal records, perpetuating the cycle of involvement with the criminal justice system. This is how criminals are made and maintained underneath the common philosophy of forgiving those who have paid their debt to society. The underground justice system does not actually care if they paid their debt or not, they just want a criminal base to fund their private prison systems.

Efforts are being made by government agencies, nonprofits, and advocacy groups to address these challenges through policies and programs aimed at helping formerly incarcerated individuals reintegrate into society successfully. These efforts include “Ban the Box” initiatives, which aim to remove questions about criminal history from initial job applications, and various reentry programs designed to provide support and resources to help individuals rebuild their lives after release.

Some people are fortunate and have a support base of family and friends that will help them reenter. But many do not and fall back into the cracks of a system unprepared and unwilling to actually help rehabilitate ex-convicts. Though politicians claim the government spends too much on social programs, housing prisoners is extremely expensive also and adds a strain to the federal budget.

The cost of housing a prisoner per year varies widely by country and jurisdiction. In the United States, for instance, the cost to incarcerate an individual can range from thousands to tens of thousands of dollars per year, with significant differences between state and federal facilities. The cost includes expenses related to housing, food, healthcare, security, and various correctional programs.

The engineers of this complex criminal master plan of private prison operations have no concerns about what it cost to house prisoners; they simply chock it up as an expense in their fortune of profits they make off the backs of convicts. This is an evil plot and contrary to the teachings of Jesus Christ and many other world religions that teach that people deserve a second chance, that people can change, and that every person deserves the right to freedom and liberty.
