Prejean summarizes what Patrick has to say about what it is like in the prison, saying “he’s already been sent to the “hole” because someone with a grievance had put contraband under his mattress. He had protested but to no avail. ‘You got no defense in this place’” (33). This shows how people in prison do not have many rights, and no one will stand up
He explains how these kids are “left without help or hope.” This means that juveniles who get sentenced to life in prison do not have the opportunity to educate themselves, rehabilitate, or enjoy life again. They are simply existing inside four walls that separate them from the real world. This is not a proper punishment for juveniles. They do not learn or change when they are sentenced to life without parole.
One limitation is there were delays for inmates to be put in solitary confinement for rule violations. Since jail is a short-stay setting many of the inmates are sentenced to solitary but never make it to solitary. And the inmates who are waiting to be moved to solitary often self-harm themselves just anticipating going to solitary confinement. The second limitation they had was the lack of data regarding criminal charges or jail rule violations. And the third limitation is that they had no systematic data on the inmates who did self-harm before they were incarcerated, thus they couldn’t examine the extent of which previous acts were independent predictors of jail behavior or self-harm.
Even though the government has public records for citizens to see the statistics was outdated, the Federal Bureau of Prisons showed statistics for 2013. McDonald (2015) stated that the government had some deficiencies in the treatment of capital spending. Showing problems with accurate cost is important but there have been a number of studies to determine if private prison are cheaper than public prisons. According to community officials in jurisdictions which house local prisons, cost could be seen as a major advantage. A court judge in Beattyville, Kentucky, stated that the average cost to house a prisoner in a public prison would be about 40 dollars a day, while the cost to house that same prisoners in a private prison is only 26 dollars (Ammons, et al, 1992 pg 38).
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.
Private prisons also run at a lower cost than their public counterparts. The corporations running the prisons tend to outsource to other companies, and thus reduce government costs. Operating the prisons appears to cost less in a private prison as well. Although it appears private prisons spend the same monetary amount on labor as their public counterparts, private prisons make up for that with their supply costs. Buying in bulk from outside sources lowers the cost
The attention that his mother could not give him. He was raised in a bad way where he didn’t know from right or wrong. It is not his fault he ended up that way it is mostly his mother fault for not being there when he was in need. He was only 18 and was always in and out of jail if he had a real role model in his life then things would have been so much more different. He had so much potential to be a good person but ended up in a bad family.
Thus, these prisoners are given the short end of the stick, because these companies are profiting off of them with little compensation for their work. These companies discovered that is much more profitable to use prison labor to produce their products than to utilize human labor from third world countries. Therefore, the prison-industrial system works to exploit prisoners. Instead of helping these prisoners better themselves, both the government and private-owned prison owners use prisoners to put money in their
Organic Food In the society where people are getting more concerned about one 's health organic food has become a widely spread and followed by many people tendency. Organic food is believed to have better impact on person 's well-being and not to cause harm to people and the surrounding world due to its ecological nature. The debate that has been recently developed around this topic cannot be solved easily since both supporters and their counterparts provide reasonable arguments supporting their positions. However, to get into the problem and find the answer to a question that concerns many people it is necessary to identify organic food at first.
In conclusion, both Fahrenheit 451 and The Hunger Games contain several elements of a dystopian society. The first characteristic of a dystopian society is that information is restricted, as well as independent thought and freedom being limited. Firstly, information is restricted in Fahrenheit 451 because books are not permitted and anyone who owns one is treated with cruel punishment. Next, freedom is limited in The Hunger Games because each district keeps its members within a small, condensed area without allowing them to leave.
When CCA took over a prison in Hamilton County, Tennessee, it refused to provide the family hospitalization insurance that had previously been provided to employees under the management of the county. In addition, CCA replaced the existing retirement plan with a program that gave employees unreliable stock benefits. The minimal level of investment private facilities put into their employees is reflected in high rates of turnover and poor job performance. The Arizona Department of Corrections reported that “[staff at an Arizona private facility] are fairly ‘green’ across all shifts,” and “are not proficient with weapons” (“Banking on Bondage: Private Prisons and Mass
Unless prisons are planning on keeping inmates in isolation for their entire sentence, prisons are causing more problems for themselves because of the problems. The aggression and resentment built up by the prisoner towards the prison and other inmates/officers can be detrimental with the flow of prison due to rule breaking and violence (Weir, 2012; Dingfelder, 2012; Constanzo, Martinez, Klebe, Torrence & Livengood, 2012). There are no rehabilitation results from isolation, so whenever a prisoner is sent, they are delaying the obvious problems that will occur once
Prisoners should be remorseful for breaking the law, not getting enjoyment from it. In the article, “Do prisoners have too much luxury/ too many privileges?”, the author says, “Not only do they have access to T.V.s, gym equipment and game consoles - Venables even has a guitar - the inmates are also paid to get an education.” How are these actions going to teach prisoners discipline? Prisoners should not receive this kind of treatment while in their detention center; prison is called “prison” for a reason.
Does it make sense to lock up 2.4 million people on any given day, giving the U.S the highest incarceration rate in the world. More people are going to jail, this implies that people are taken to prison everyday for many facilities and many go for no reason. People go to jail and get treated the worst way as possible. This is a reason why the prison system needs to be changed. Inmates need to be treated better.
Contradictory to what has been said, private prisons are not as safe as public prisons. Private prisons were created as a cost saving alternative, but this means the corners are being cut to provide these “savings”. Staff training at facilities are lower than the compared staff training at public facilities. Without the proper training, prison staff may not know how to properly defuse a situation or handle conflict. In turn, this can create a dangerous and deadly prison environment.
