Researchers believe that the orbitofrontal cortex is affected in an addict and the neural signals do not change based on the severity of the situation. Thus they are unable to get their brain to make sound choices. Then a malfunction in the anterior cingulate cortex allows addicts to continue making bad decisions. These two major malfunctions continually allow an addict to make unhealthy choices (Nauert, 2011). Nic did not choose to steal because he wanted to hurt his family.
Some of the athletes give money to charity to help kids that need it. Most athletes spend their money on drugs and alcohol that could hurt them and their career. They could also be caught and sent to jail and have a bad reputation. Once people realize that the athlete has done been in jail they will be disliked by the fans and the team.
Although, I do believe adjusting to what everyone agrees is acceptable would be difficult. I believe laws should be made to protect people’s safety without jeopardizing people from living a happy lifestyle. Karl Marx articulates that social change occurs when society in itself moves to society for itself. Society in itself is described as a group that has common interested but is unconscious of the common interest and society for itself is a group that has common interested and is actively advocating and working towards common goals. I think laws should be open to change with society, humans are ever changing and the laws should recognize that and reconsider what is deviant and what is a shift in
Fabiha Chowdhury 8-32 Monsters This book monsters is an outstanding book about an innocent person who was accused of something he has not done because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. The theme of this book focuses on mostly Justice in my opinion because it is taken place in a court. I believe the theme is Justice because its about finding justice for the man who is murdered in the drugstore.
Logically speaking it makes no sense to ruin someone 's life to “protect” them from ruining their life with a drug. When in prison they will experience violence, rape, and exposure to drugs and disease (which are extremely dangerous ex. “Toilette wine” or disease from sharing needles). So they are not safe and chances are will become addicted to other substances while in prison. If the war on drugs is supposed to protect
Stereotyping is a frequent problem in our society. So, seeing prominent stereotyping throughout Bennett’s essay was not anything I was surprised by, although that does not make it acceptable. Throughout my life, I’ve experienced not only someone stereotyping my former drug addict brother, but stereotyping the type of person I am and the type of people my family are. My older brother went through a long and awful trial with drugs, and upon telling anyone, they automatically assumed that he was some low-life, grungy criminal. However, he wasn’t, and upon meeting him no one would ever know he was heavily addicted to drugs.
The justice system in the United States of America is not fair. Michelle Alexander writes a great article “Locked Up In America” describing how people gets into the justice system and how their life is when coming out of jail. People that are convicted of any crime they are labeled as criminals and felons. Criminals does not get properly punished for their crimes if they did they wouldn’t be so many people going in and out of jail. The justice system should have different ways of punishing a person according to the crime they commit, just by putting them in jail and assuming that is going to change them is not a good way of going about that.
Rehabilitation of prisoners is an extremely difficult effort. Inmates are segregated from the general public and forced to live in a society where crime is a way of life. For many, time spent behind bars will push them farther into a life of crime, but for others, the horrors of prison life and the lessons they learn there are enough to convince them to do anything possible to never become imprisoned
Selling yourself for profit might possibly be the only way for some people to survive or to provide for their family. It maybe an easier choice to believe that it is an empowering decision they have made than to face the blunt and harsh reality of child sexual, physical, and mental abuse, done by the pimps that prey on the young women and men alike. The second reason people can be involved in sex trafficking is because they were either lured or kidnapped and don 't have any kind choice or say in what they
Perspectives are often prejudiced by preconceived notions. Society has historically communicated that addicts are morally negligent people without any inclination to cease their destructive behavior and that the addiction itself is produced because of a character flaw or a weakness. Citing the addict’s seemingly careless attitude toward the financial burden and pain and suffering they arbitrarily cause others as proof of their imagined personality imperfections. As with numerous other things, unfortunately, experience is the best teacher. Before my personal journey with a drug-addicted child, I also held to the belief that an addict was an addict by choice and could stop the abuse by simply making the decision to.
Wes turned him down at first but he got to thinking and didn’t want to lose a sale which was a terrible idea. I told him not to, but he just didn’t listen and look what happened. Wes has a past of selling drugs to many different people, he has learned the way of what and what not to do. Maybe it was because he valued his work
Finally, my last suggestion would be to alter the labels of ex-felonies for minor violations, and changing how to use the criminal check box. Once an ex-convict paid for their time in prison for inferior crimes we should not label then as a felon, so that they can apply for jobs and do not have to check on the felony box when applying for a job. Consequently, ex-convict could get a better chance to be hired, so that they truly have a chance to readjust in the society. People that who are labeled as a felon have a hard time applying for jobs, housings, and getting food stamps, making it impossible to survive and to provide for their family. They can lose their kids, their home, and become homeless and in other cases going back to jail.
Because of the environment that Yummy and Sam are surrounded by, they were forced to make the decisions they did. Yummy and Sam, both have similar situations where they didn’t want to make wrong decisions or do bad things, but both didn’t have a choice because they are victims. Sam is a victim because if he didn’t sell drugs, he wouldn’t have money to bring back to his family. As a result, Yummy is a victim due to how the environment had changed him, from being a sweet boy who loves candy into a person who had joined a gang and started doing bad things, like shoplifting and killing. In fact, Growing Up in a Bad Neighborhood Does More Harm Than We Thought, by Justin Wolfers mentions, “It has long been clear that children from troubled neighborhoods have worse outcomes as adults.
Criminal Justice: We, The Rainbow Party, believe that criminal justice should be very more different. Instead of the criminals facing time in prison we think they should just go to a rehabilitation center to get treated. Some criminals do the things they do because they have a mental problem and if they are just locked in a place full of other criminals they will only be influenced more harshly and won 't get the help they need. On the other hand, being in a rehabilitation center puts them in a position to be forced to get help and go to counseling. We as a party think prison is a harsh place were a very large amount of criminals come together and either argue and gang up on others or they stay far away in fear of getting raped or hurt.
