In the case of murder, in most cases there is nothing rational to be done.
Unless we are talking about gang murders, most murders are within family.
OK, so put them in jail.  Let them out and see what happens.  Extremely low
recividism rate for that type of murder.  You accomplish nothing by a
prison term. They knew it was wrong.  They will never do it again.  Why pay
$30K a year to keep them in prison when nothing good comes out of it?
Yeah, they get away with it, and that might encourage others to do the
same, expecting no punishment.  We have here is MS a lot of killings in
prison whether from gangs or who knows.  What to do with them?

For rapists:  nonremovable patches of female hormones, taking the sex drive
down to zero - chemical castration.

For burglars:  State jobs while they learn a trade. On parole, with jail if
they break it.  Some money to go to those burgled.  Ankle bracelets for GPS

For white collar crime,like losing trillions of dollars :  the stocks, so
people can come by and spit on them.  Certainly no comfy prison. PUt them
in with the black gangs and see how the word spreads about white collar
crime.  This is certainly the class of crime that needs the most attention.
