A person has a sticker for the action "Abolish Prisons" what would the person list as the solution to keep society safe from Offenders?

Without Prisons I wonder what the person would list as the solution to keep society safer from con artists, swindlers, robbers, Extortionists, sexual predators, Murderers, etc. This is a sticker that I saw on a person's car while driving this year.

    The first question for such a person is how they define "prison". Chances are it's narrower than you think.

    Increasingly, criminologists have been developing approaches to restorative justice - concepts that offenders should be 'making amends', not simply bearing a punishment, and that a major objective of criminal justice is rehabilitation and reintegration.

    In that light, the American incarceration-heavy approach has at least two problems: They incarcerate too many people, and in conditions that are not conducive to reintegration.

    There are few who would argue against institutionalization of dangerous criminals, but a style of incarceration modeled after medieval dungeons isn't really a great way of reintegrating people.

    If I get free food, free housing, and free medical care in prison then maybe I need to re-think my life.

    I would imagine that the answer from a Democrat would be:

    Give them Free Health Care

    Free Housing

    Free Job Trainng

    Free Food

    in exchange, Vote Democratic
