Prison guards may be more strict than parents, but they both serve the same purpose. Being grounded technically doesn’t have guards, but it has parents that try to act like guards. They are there to make sure no funny business goes on and to make life miserable. They want their “prisoner” to be sure they have learned a lesson. The same thing goes on in prison, but the lesson is the sentence to jail.
Changing criminal behavior, not pausing it while incarcerated is what is needed to keep the public safe, making offenders aware of the destruction they have caused to society, and making them accountable via treatment programs and discipline. Unfortunately, upon release an offender may have set backs, being in a structured, disciplined environment, followed by complete freedom may prove bad for some. Many halfway houses are located far away from an offender’s residence, therefore even if employment is secured during treatment when released they return home to no job, or support, and are put back in the same situation. Community support is imperative in the effectiveness of halfway houses, sadly, many communities refuse halfway houses in their communities, lack of education and fear have been a huge
The role of the prisoner is changed through the shaping of their social life, because their role as prisoners has demands which is equality and limited freedom which means that they are not better than anyone else and are the same. Goffman (1961:71) states that prisons restrict prisoners from keeping up with the changes and updates happening in the outside world. This total institution shapes their social lives, because after the prisoner’s are released they know their place in community and even though they have freedom, they are not free because they are still considered as prisoners. For example, a prisoner knows that after prison it will not be easy to find a job due to the fact that there will be a criminal record in their curriculum vitae. In conclusion to the above, I do believe that prisons as a total institution are there to put prisoners in isolation, not only because of they have committed a crime but because they come out of this total institution with something lesson which is meant to make them not commit a crime again.
It ruins the offender’s life and does nothing to help them rehabilitate. They do not learn to do better when they are locked with thousands of other prisoners for the rest of their lives. They cannot recover without the hope of getting out of prison. They think there is no reason to even try. As Gail Garinger stated on his article Juveniles Don’t Deserve Life Sentences, adolescents sentenced to die in prisons “were told that they could never change and that no one cared what became of them.” 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.
Some people disobey authority because they feel like they’re in a situation to where you’re not in charge of them or just because you do what someone says your this or that. People justify their behavior by assigning responsibility to the authority rather than themselves. So in conclusion the Milgram prison experience was to show the effects of perceived power of focusing on the struggle between prisoners and prison guards and how the students reaction on their experiment going in the prison and being disobeying and obeying authority well not all of them well never mind yes all of them. Till today there are still crimes like this that’s going on inside the prison cell and that they’re hiding what’s going on. They also have no chose but to obey authority or they would be beaten or put in a whole/box by the guards.
We as humans view this due to the fact of everything we see on television and hear around our surroundings. The media has programmed our minds to believe untrue “facts” of what we believe is someone who is mentally ill. When in reality, the mentally ill people cannot help that they are the way they are because it is a silent disease that they struggle with every day. Due to their struggle and resentment of wanting to believe they are ill, they won’t ask for help when in reality they need it. They will keep quiet in fear of judgement, isolation, and discrimination, so every day they put on their mask and go out into the world pretending they are just fine.
Both John and the government in Panopticism use similar techniques of being watched, treating them like prisoners and trying to change their ways in order to fix them. Whether the prisoners and patients felt like it, the people controlling them were trying to shape them for the better even when it seemed like the
Offenders don’t realize the reality when reentering society because they aren’t giving the necessaries resources. The reality is how the criminal justice system have label them. When an offender is release from prison their life is over due to the way the criminal justice have develop. Many would concur that there is a problem with strength based. As clearly demonstrated there will always be pros and cons towards an issue.
There are an array of provisions excessively limiting what can and cannot be published. Therefore, reporting on family cases is problematic due to these strict laws, including: The Children Act, the Administration of Justice Act and The Family Procedure Rules 2010, the latter of which excludes the public from cases involving children, but permit journalists to attend some proceedings. Media coverage of family law cases under section 97 makes it an offence to publish a name, address or any detail identifying their school alongside any other material likely to lead to their identification. Accordingly, section 97 provides automatic anonymity to children in unresolved residence or contact disputes, and children subject to intervention by social workers. A breach of section 97 is punishable by a fine of up to £2,500.
