How to change recidivists?
It is a person who keeps going back to a life of crime even after being punished. We may say that, in other words, this is an incurable criminal or, as such people are often described, a hardened criminal. This is a person who repeatedly regresses and relapses into a life of crime.
It's hard to reclaim (resocjalizować) such a person. Hence, my question is 'How to change recidivists?' Should they just be kept isolated? Should they be punished more and more severely each time they commit a crime? Should any other idea be implemented? Do you have any suggestions? Cheers!
