When sent to court in Maricopa County he was found guilty of arson and the sentence could have been 10 to 20 years. However, during the proceeding Marin had swallowed cyanide to escape his fate. We also spoke about a Marxist theory that stated that government creates criminal laws to benefit the people who own the means of economic production. It reminded me of my previous post on the forum which spoke about private prison groups lobbying to create
We are paying too much for prisons and this can be greatly reduced I believe. The goal of going to prison in my opinion is to have that person change, realize what they’ve done and have a form of normalization practiced in the prisons so they have that preparation for re-assimilation into the normal world. Don’t get me wrong, SOME inmates do not deserve a second change to be with society again. Those I would consider to be the more heinous of crimes. I’m referring to the medium to lesser charges, including drug charges and immigration.
What they don 't see is that by using the money on beneficial programs they can reduce the amount of crime in communities who are crime based. Policing in communities of color is beneficial to the Prison Industrial Complex. Which is merely a form of exploitation that prisoners accused of such crimes undergo. They give their labor in return for nothing. “Prisoners do data entry for Chevron, make telephone reservations for TWA, raise hogs, shovel manure, make circuit boards, limousines,waterbeds and lingerie for Victoria’s Secret- all at a fraction of the cost of ‘free labor’”(Davis 686).
cabinet official served jail time for a felony committed while in office. The government had set aside oil-rich public lands at Teapot Dome, Wyoming, and Elk Hills, California, for use by the U.S. Navy. Albert Fall secretly leased the land to two private oil companies. Although Fall claimed that these contracts were in the government’s interest, he suddenly received more than $400,000 in “loans, bonds, and cash.” He was later found guilty of bribery and became the first American to be convicted of a felony while holding a cabinet post. As a result, the problem with the Teapot Dome Scandal was that after Harding’s administration became corrupt with bribery.
There has always been a system to contribute to the prosperity of a society, whether that be an economic system, educational system, social systems and many more. Although these are to help the country there are also flaws in them. One system in society that has major flaws in the prison system. The prison system has failed many Americans and strayed away from its main goal which was to help inmates to not become victims of recidivism. Prisons need to find a way to help inmates become stable enough to go back into society.
Solitary confinement not only fails to rehabilitate but often times causes extensive damage to the minds of the incarcerated. It is no secret that solitary confinement has adverse effects on prisoners and can lead to mental breakdowns as well as suicide. In an article by Alayna Demartini titled “Long Terms in Solitary Can Warp Minds, Critics Say” guest speaker and director of the Human Rights Watch, Jamie Fellner asserts that “Leaving inmates alone for days with little or no outside contact can be harmful to their psychological health”(Demartini 3). The inmates that are the worst damaged are those who enter solitary with an existing low mental health as well as juveniles are at high risk of psychological damage. Not only is this method not effective but prisons across the states are making prisoners spend months at a time inside solitary confinement.
Dr. King organizes his thoughts about education being a culture, is beyond the need for education to be more efficient. America is one of the most richest countries in the world, but build schools that never allocated enough resources. As he knew, one of the major roadblocks to equality in this country is equal access to education and its benefits. Dr. King wanted what every culture would be in their education, whether Native American, Asian, Hispanic, or African, system that promotes the values, traditions, and beliefs. Dr. King expresses how we are prone to let our lives be invaded with propaganda, legions of half truths, and how the press is pursuing an agenda that the viewers are fed half truths.
It raises an issue about lobbying, a practice to attempt to influence the legislation to serve their own interests. This can be considered as form of injustice. Also private prison owners make profit from getting more and more detainees, while the detainees are having a hard
Nowadays prisoners have more luxury items than normal. They are blessed to have television, games, smoke shops, health care, hot meals and more. Prison should not be easy with everything given to them for free, prison should be hard and meant to punish them and teach them a lesson for breaking the law. The prisoners of America do not deserve the ideal treatment that they receive. The money that is spent on prisons and the prisoners could benefit the citizens of America in another way.
There are some cost efficient programs and other options that may be more than expected but making sure one works the best should be looked at with a different strategy to reduce recidivism. Inmates usually have obstacles when pertaining to getting back on their feet and how they spend their time wisely keeping consistent on their new goals. Recidivism and redemption are somewhat similar where recidivism is whether a criminal still “look like they will enter back into crime as an offender and redemption make sure that criminal records depreciates in the future over time making employers to rely on former inmates criminal records. Desistance the act of ending criminal’s careers. Over time long term recidivism has shown to be desistance that significantly individual change during the process when supported for opportunities for work, housing, and
When the representative of Novelty Now and Chris decided to increase the profit margin they would substitute the PYR in place of Novelty’s original formula, they were affecting the key element Who. This poor decision-making caused their unethical act to hurt their company, management, employees, and community. This loss of trust will affect all other products they carry. The second element involves the Purpose. The defendant’s main reason for doing this was to obtain more money.
first casualty of these bomb attacks was a 65 year old veteran who was one month away from his retirement. FLQ’s total disregard for human lives was evident from their most devastating attack on the Montreal stock exchange, on Feb. 13th 1969, This explosion caused massive destruction, estimated in the millions of dollars, and seriously injured 27 people. Despite such gruesome acts by the terrorist organization like FLQ, the authorities in the province of Quebec seemed powerless as they were unable to raid and make arrest of suspects unless they are granted warrants, which sometimes took months to obtain. Some people might argue that only two high profile kidnappings don’t provide
