Stanley, I would have to half agree with your comment. Yes, inmates should be allow to have personal property. I disagree with discrimination against certain inmates for possessing personal property. There should not be discrimination on personal property items because I believe standardized items that inmates may possess regardless of the crimes they committed. If there are discrimination of personal property items, inmates will start to filed suits with the court.
More people get incarcerated for non-violent crimes and crimes caused by mental illnesses or drug abuse (Webb, 2009) and because these people get put in regular prisons, instead of in mental health facilities or facilities to help against drug addiction, where they could be treated to further prevent crimes driven by their illness (Webb, 2009), the prisons get overfilled and cannot hold the more ‘important’ prisoners that needed to be locked away from the public. A strong link of the criminal justice process is that the system tries to keep it fair for everyone. Every defendant has the right to an attorney so they can be defended properly and fairly and “Only judges who are adequately informed about a case can effectively control the proceedings and examine evidence” (Tochilovsky, 2002) It is also important for the criminal justice system that those involved show discretion and although this is not always the case, discretion by the judges, police, etc.
Dealing with sexual offenders is not always an easy task to do. Many of the times, the offender will either cooperate or not cooperate. That being said, ATSA has set up a list of regulations that employees should considered. The one I thought were interesting was the fact that motivation inside of the facility and outside is crucial when it comes to the overall treatment of the offender (“ATSA Practice Guidelines and Ethics Order Form,” 2015). If, for example, the treatment is neglectful from the inside of the facility and no support is given by those at home, there’s a high chance that the offender will become an habitual criminal.
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.
This is showing that women were restrained to do many things, and sadly, women were content with it. Furthermore, Bogan also uses another metaphor, “As like as not, when they take life over their door-sills/ They should let it go by” (19-20). This is a metaphor because if one takes anything over a door-sill, that means one is bringing something
Women may receive more assistant and help post prison compared to men since women typically are not as psychologically as stable compared to men. Men should also be offered this same options as the women are instead of being stereotyped into one category as everyone being the same as one another. People believe that more women are offered more assistance after being released from jail compared to men because men typically want to play the “tough man” role to prove that they do not need any help compared to women once being released from jail. Another factor to as why women receive more options compared to men is that women are usually more targeted by those who they may have gotten to know in jail or even prior to being in jail and also tend to be a victim rather than being a recurring
. Someone who comes into the hospital just so they can get a check when they are clearly healthy but truly too lazy to work. Prisoners who come in and break furniture, trigger violence, share their rude and unintelligent slurs to the staff and demean them, because they have nothing to lose and will be going back to jail. Another concern and person battle I deal with would be restraining someone in the bed.
The main focus of this journal article is how transgender prisoners are mentally and physically denied the right to pass as women in a prison meant solely for men. Jenness and Fenstermaker (2014) state that these transgender inmates have to be definite in their femininity so as to receive a form of ‘recognition’ and ‘belonging’ of their chosen gender, and even then it is difficult as they are in a men’s prison and are therefore understood to be as ‘male’. This immediately serves as a Human Right’s concern, as even prisoners have the right and privilege to be whomsoever they want to be. Jenness and Fenstermaker (2014) argue that although every human possess that right, transgender prisoners being sexually assaulted is 13 times more likely than
The rape culture can be termed as a culture where the societal is a norm for females to be represented just because of the rape fear to be present ever. Again, there is an acceptance that it is impossible for one to conceive the society where there no existence of rape. The acceptance and anticipation of nuisance, objectification, and also the possibility of rape cases, is emphasized through the study where a large proportion of women, employed in professions dominated by the male are undergoing sexual provocation. However, the victims examined the sensitivity of their own other than blaming the committers hence accrediting the conduct of men for just being men. The expectations binary gender is contributing to the culture of blaming the fatality; hence the men responsible is not to be good and respectful but rather the females to overawe the weakness alleged to be in their response.
However that is not quite simple since they usually marry within endogamy. The gender roles in Guatemala, consist of gender stratification. According to Emma, males are dominate, head of household and tends to work all day while women are mostly housewives but if needed they work in stands. “Sometimes women are used as object, rape is common, and women needs to be careful walking alone” she explained to me. As for the laws they are not upheand are not strict at all so it easy do unlawful actions and get away with it.
Think one easy way is to let the inmates be able to report any incident anonymous not just rape. Have an independent investigation team not tied into the prison so there would no bias involved. How can you find out the truth about what is going on behind bars when everyone is scared to talk about because of recourse? You talk about having zero tolerance for rape happening in prison then maybe you should show it how you treat each inmate claiming they was raped by another inmate or worse a guard. Separating the few bad prisoners from the rest is a good start.
On the evening of August 19th 1971, he invited her and a few other of their colleagues to the “prison” to see what their opinion of the environment was. Christina was also a psychologist who felt that she was overreacting, yet her first response was disgust. As Christina described the experiment, “I was sick to my stomach.” (O’Toole). She was at first mocked by the fellow researchers, but as she went home with Philip and explained to him the ways that he had lost touch with reality, that he was not truly a warden of a prison, and that the men in those cells had truly done nothing wrong, Zimbardo listened to her.
She just stated the program coordinator told her the percentages, so credibility wasn 't verified. The counter argument is the same could be used for males in prison. Males who commit nonviolent crimes should not be incarcerated but enrolled in these special programs also. Men are needed for support of children and prison aren 't designed only for males because males aren 't the only one that commit crimes. O 'Brien seem passionate about the article and expressed ways that women can be enrolled in different programs instead of being incarcerated for nonviolent crimes.
Imagine being trapped in a damp, dark, cage as a form of punishment for something that seems completely out of your grasp. Prisons were understaffed and as barbaric as it gets the people charged with crimes were whipped. The primary cause for their creation was to keep the crooks from harming any people right? Everyone in solitary confinement is treated the same way but not everyone came for the same reason. In fact, mentally ill people were considered to be harsh maniacs which did not receive treatment for a long time.
