I can't say anything directly about that because neither you nor I know what the hell "free will" means, but I do know what "will" means and if something wants to do X and I prevent that something from doing X then that something will be unhappy and look upon my actions as a punishment and will not want it repeated. So independent of what if anything the noise "free will" means, punishment is a deterrent; but you should have already known that.
