Some people believe that there should be fixed punishment for each crime. Others, however, argue that the circumstances of an individual crime, and the motivation for committing it, should always be taken into account when deciding on punishment.

Disciplinary actions are important to maintaining law and order in a society. It is


thought by some people that the penalty for a certain


ought to be permanent, while others contend that the situations and the impetus for offending have to be considered when making a decision on the consequence of breaking the law.

In conclusion, while opinions may vary, I strongly believe that events surrounding a


be examined before passing judgement to an alleged offender.
