    #1. Good jobs.
    #2. Bring back hard labor to jails and prisons so they will absolutely fear going there. Or going back.

      You are 100% right , they do not fear the law the judge or the jail , The jails are full to the max with low lives that check in to get to see a doctor a dentist teeth fixed , , 3 meal a day classes to get a ged , So they don't have a worry in the world , The same ones are 3 and 4 times offenders .
