Are you in favor of House Bill 335 authorizing the courts to render a sentence of community service penalty on minor offenses punishable by arresto mayor instead of one day to 30 days imprisonment?

 

Yes, community service inculcates civic consciousness and promotes public service among offenders. Such minor offenses may still be corrected through the processes of restorative justice that aid in reforming offenders, guiding them back to the fold of the law. Also, jails and penitentiaries will be decongested.

No, imprisonment is a justified punishment for the wrong committed by the offender. The severity of a punishment should be proportionate to the gravity of the offense.

I am undecided.
