After a twelve-hour interrogation, Brenton Butler confessed to the murder of Mary Ann Stephens. A key claim made by the defense attorneys in this case was that this was a false confession, and after reaching a verdict of not guilty, the jury clearly agreed. The factors that led the false confession were laid out in a scene during the documentary. Instead of using the interview to discover the truth, the interrogators specifically sought out a confession from the suspect. They began the interrogation with the presumption that Brenton Butler was guilty. In fact, when one of the police officers was asked if he was there to get a confession, he responded, “yes.” Over the course of this interrogation, the police officers physically and emotionally
If you are a parent, how would you like to watch your child grow up behind bars? If you are the child, imagine growing up behind bars for a mistake you once made. A courtyard in a college or high school differentiates a huge amount from a courtyard in a prison. America should raise the minimum age a juvenile can be tried as an adult to twenty-one because the prefrontal cortex in ages twenty-five and under is still developing, the behavior of young adults is not completely mature, and prison or jail has a tremendous amount of negative effects on young adults.

The article talks about the various ways on how states can allow families to see their loved ones who are incarcerated. One of the main reasons why someone were not able to see their loved one or significant other is because of how far the prison or jail is placed. Every family member is not going to have the chance to go for a visit and this is the cause of families not having the opportunity to connect with them while being incarcerated. There are many people who are incarcerated and would rather be at home with their family. The only thing that they need to do is realize that someone is there to help them get in the community, back with their family.
I know most inmates get jobs within the jail that pay very little like 20 cents an hour so imagine an inmate barely having enough to purchase some soap or food, then they have to face the challenge of having to pay for their stay? On the other side I also understand the Civil rights side which is the side I 'm going with, although their argument is very weak. It doesn 't necessarily create a barrier to rehabilitation, if anything it just puts a huge strain financially and it could possibly make people never want go back to jail. Lastly whether or not they paid taxes in the past, shouldn 't matter, what matters is if they pay taxes after their incarceration maybe that way the government can get some money back from an inmates ' previous

A lady called the police, and the boy was taken to the hospital.
On our journey to the Dane county Jail I 0don’t think we know what to expect only that the people that are there have done some wrong to society and will pay the altmit penalty. Once at jail we all had to check in and were given badges that told we were visitors. While in the lobby they had time machines that you could add fund to someone that was being kept there. Some of your option I noticed was for phone calls and getting items within the jail that you could have. Then there was area where you could pay your fines and wait for your friend or love one to be released. In this area, it was very clean and fresh smelling, you also felt safe.
I was boarding the plane to go to California but I was actually really scared because I have never been on a plane before and I had to sit on the window seat. Also I had no food because I was hungry and I was watching tv and we took off. And it was on the plane tv, but I got bored and looked out and it was a beautiful view and I loved seeing the mountains because they were really tall and pretty. So for the rest of the plane ride I looked outside and It was so fun. Now we finally landed and got our stuff and went outside.
All these speculation. . . I truly believe Corey didn't pull out the gun on the officer!! They search the car later and discover he had a gun and try to make their story more justified. Firing your gun Not one , not two but SIX time is beyond crazy too me . . . This sorry has been changing no stop! Corey was a God fearing man, not only would he NOT pull a gun on a cop knowing the consequences that's many people has suffer today!!
