recidivism (noun) committing of crimes even after punishment.

Recidivism is the tendency among certain persons to commit crimes even after punishment like a jail term. They cannot be reformed and the punishment has no effect on them. The nature of committing crime as a habit is recidivism.

  • Stringent punishment is meant to check recidivism, but centuries of experience have proved that punishment cannot successfully end recidivism. Criminals repeat crimes in spite of stringent punishment.
  • Human nature being what it is, recidivism has more to do with one’s genes than with external factors.
