In today’s society victims of crime get no restitution. The Bible, in the book of Exodus 22:1-15 tells us that if someone steals or damages your property he should make a restitution to you. Sending criminals who steal and/or damage property to jail is wrong and unwise. In jail most of the criminals learn how to be better thieves and not how to reform. On top of this the victims of the crime have to pay to support these jails. Instead of receiving restitution, they are giving money to the state through taxes to feed and house these criminals. This is not good for society. Criminals should pay restitution to their victims as the Bible says. However if a person kills another person he does not pay restitution to the victim’s family. His sentence is death. The Bible in the book of Leviticus 24:17 reads,”And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.” This is the way it should be, it makes criminals think twice before committing a crime. This is the way the family of the victim receives restitution.
