Our supporting points are that it keeps prisoners safe from each other. It keeps crazy people off the street so there is nobody that killed someone or raped people on the streets threatening to do it again. Also it's not torture no one goes into the prison and get tortured and then they die in the end because they have been through too much pain. Also if you look at the eighth amendment and also look up cruel and unusual punishment they don't match up at all and if you add solitary confinement it doesn't match cruel and unusual punishment either. You will benefit if you pick my side because you can keep crazy and dangerous people of the streets, and get them help from therapists and doctors and help them get back to normal and then they won't be crazy and dangerous but if that doesn't help you can keep them concealed from the world so they can't hurt anyone.
It does not make a criminal a better person, however, the chances are that either he will come out as a better person with regrets of his past or he will have a grouse against the society and come out as a person with revengeful feelings. No one is born a criminal; it is the society and certain conditions that compel a person to commit crimes. Punishments are given to criminals, aiming to reform them and turn them into good citizens. Inmates are placed in these isolation units for a number of reasons ranging from protecting the other prisoners, to providing justice. Solitary confinement prevents from any harm.
Interestingly, Chow was not brought to justice in the end, but the main characters were arrested by corrupted police. Chow’s character is a evil homosexual stereotype, but the film offers an unconventional ending for him. The film creates a fantasy that people do not face consequences when they participate in criminal activities. Las Vegas has a long history with organized crime, and many casinos were ran by the mob (Griffin,38). At that time, the crime rate in Las Vegas was low not because the police was being efficient, but because no one dared to mess with the mob.
Although the staff may not have to worry about being assaulted as much, they may still develop mental issues by completely separating themselves from the inmates except only in “control” situations (Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). It would seem that the staff members in supermax prisons could also get a sense of comfort, which could in turn be very dangerous for them. The staff has complete control over the inmates, and this may make them more relaxed in a place where they need not be relaxed. Overall, supermax prisons can have negative effects on staff and inmates, but they also can have positive effects. The main positive effect would be separating these violent inmates from the general population, and potentially removing key leaders from STG groups.
They were very protective of letting camera’s in, or near the facility. I do understand protecting people’s privacy, but the way they handled that seemed way more than what they were letting on. We were pushed through the front desk, and was scanned, and treated like meat as we were pushed through the metal detector. They seemed to not really be friendly, and just wanted their
Are Zoos Unethical By:Kalynn Deppe An issue that has been hotly debated since the brink of zoos has been whether they are ethical or not. Although some believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals, thousands of research has shown this not to be true. The main reasons zoos are devious is because, there artificial environments are harmful, the animals are more prone to diseases, and it can damage children's views on society. To begin, zoos are unprincipled due to the fact that they take animals out of the wild and place them in synthetic environments that have failed to meet the animals designated standard of living. For example, research has shown that some larger animals need for space is not fulfilled in their confined cages.
I Speak For The Unspeakable: Animal Cruelty When we go to places such as the zoo, circuses, and aquariums we go to see animals that we have never seen before.Animals that have skills to do strange tricks.Though have you ever wondered if those animals you see are happy where they are?Being in cages away from home and family, do you ever feel like they aren’t treated as it seems?If they feel scared?Animals just like humans feel.They are aware of their surroundings.Aware that they will no longer be free.Yet, they don’t have the ability to speak and say “I don’t want to be here!” Using animals for entertainment or gaming does constitute animal cruelty because it removes animals from their natural habitat, the games they are involved in can be
Animal rights activists argue that it is inhumane to house animals in inadequate habitats and are upset that many species that aren’t considered endangered are being held in zoos around the world. Zoo advocates argue for the conservation and research of endangered species, and thoroughly work to benefit different species and keep them healthy. Both arguments base their reasoning off of varying ideas, animals rights activists address the physical downfalls of animals in captivity, how it is nearly impossible to perfectly recreate an animals natural habitat, and the abuse of animals in captivity. Zoo advocates argue that the conservation and research of endangered species is necessary to keep them from extinction, they fight for humane treatment of animals around the world and work hard to show the real problem in today’s environment. Endearing Emotions As you can imagine, stories of animal abuse and the destruction of natural habitats around the world cultivate a strong emotional foundation that drives many people’s
People say that zoos are important for education and are a great way for people to learn about exotic animals (Agnew n.p). Researchers cannot learn as much when animals are captive, you can learn just as much or even more while they are in their natural habitat. While some believe that zoos are important for education, they also believe that zoos are necessary for the survival of species (Zoos n.p). Most zoos claim that they take in extinct and needy animals, most animals at zoos aren’t orphaned, extinct, or injured at all (Zoos n.p). Lastly, one big claim is that zoos help conservation of animals (Borrel n.p).
This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators. Predators are like robbers of their prey’s life. Once one is caught, predators never let go. While some may argue that being in a zoo will affect an animal’s hunting skills, it’s not always the best plan to let endangered animals free in the wild. It stands to reason that society should continue keeping our animals safe from danger in
Furthermore, it’s not a surprise that inmates while in jail have sexual encounters and use drugs. When in prison, inmates are told they are not to engage in sexual encounters or drug use but this doesn’t stop them. Since facilities don’t condone either behavior they don’t supply condoms or clean needles which poses an alarming threat of spreading HIV among inmates. This is growing a problem for correctional officials to deal with because of, as mentioned above, patient confidentiality. Although, if an HIV inmate has exposed others in a facility notification of possible transmission is to be released in order for other inmates or officers to get tested.
