Parole is honoring one’s word that an offender will not re-offend. I have mixed views about giving repeat offenders parole. The whole idea of parole is giving a person a second chance after committing a crime and paying for that crime and re-entering society. Everyone deserves a second chance, because sometimes a person could be in the wrong place and the wrong time and get caught up in a certain situation. Because a person who is on parole is getting the chance to serve the remaining time from jail to enter into the world and are able to get a job and pay fines, and still be under supervision of an officer to stay clean from drugs and not to repeat a crime, they should not be able to repeat an offense.
One of these is to keep persons suspected of committing a crime under secure control before a court of competent jurisdiction determines whether they are guilty or innocent. Incarceration also punishes offenders by depriving them of their liberty once the court of law has convicted. Moreover, incarceration deters criminals from committing further crimes
What if they raped someone and recieved the death penalty? Does the punishment fit the crime? Capital punishment is quite controversial. Many argue against it saying this form of punishment is unconstitutional. However, those convicted are given a reasonable punishment and opportunities to have their cases reassessed if need be.
Probation and parole officers have the authority to supervise and report the offenders who are in the probation and parole period. Both officers perform the same duties with different types of individuals. According to Pollock (2010), "They have the authority and power to recommend revocation" (p. 391). The parole officers can make decisions upon any recommandation as they deal with the supervision of individuals who are in their parole period and probation officer supervises individuals who have not been sent to
Prison is a very harsh and bad place that no one should want to be in. Little freedom can make a person really aggravated. Nobody wants to be away from their family with little contact allowed. Little space and little privacy can only go for so long. Personally I think prison doesn't reform people because there are many repeat offenders, some people act worse when they get there, and also some people just don't like help and never want to change.
A child is most likely to get grounded as a punishment; while an adult may be sentenced to jail time. Although being in jail and being grounded seem to be extremely different they are not they both follow the same procedures which are isolation, limited communication, and lack of privacy. Both sharing the same goal. Being isolated from everyone is one of the many things you have to go through while being grounded; come to think of it that sounds exactly what being in jail is. Both of these punishments
Juveniles Justice Juveniles who are criminals being sentenced to life without parole can be shocking to some people. I believe if a juvenile is able to commit a crime, then they are able to do the time. The article “Startling finds on Teenage Brains” talks about how the brain can be different from the time you are teens to the time you are an adult. After, considering both sides on juvenile justice it is clear that juveniles should face life without parole because they did the crime so they can do the time. Also I believe the juvenile’s age should not influence the sentence and the punishment give.
“We infer that parole probably has several purposes, not least of which is to save money for the state by freeing up prison places by releasing prisoners early”(Ellis & Marshall, 2000). “It can also contribute to maintaining order or control in prison, by offering an incentive for good behavior”(Ellis & Marshall,
When given the sentence of life imprisonment, prisoners always have the chance to rehabilitate and try to better themselves. Prisons usually offer programs/help for prisoners to try and do so. This sentence is the perfect combination between just and harsh. However, spending your life in prison isn’t always the best option. Some prisoners may rather receive the death penalty and take the “quicker route” rather than spend the rest of their lives miserably with no chance of parole.
