How should people be punished for the crimes they commit?

Thousands of crimes are committed all the time. The criminals are punished by being sent to jail. I believe that every criminal has a reason for committing the crime. Every crime is punished differently because it all depends on how severe it is. I personally think each case should have its punishment depending on what the reason of the crime was. Someone could have committed a crime for self-defense and someone could commit a crime for jealousy reasons so the person who was just defending himself shouldn’t be punished the same way as the jealous person. Even though self defense is hard to prove.

I think jail and fines are the best way to punish someone for their crimes. Execution can have its advantages but it is wrong because later it may turn out that the person was innocent. Execution does no good to the victim of the crime.

Exiles are okay for some cases.

I also think rehabilitation is a good way to punish someone because rehabilitation can help the criminal change for good. But for some criminals it wouldn’t help at all.
