The use of solitary confinement to help rehabilitate the inmates. The idea was that while these criminals were in solitary they would be able to think more clearly about the crime they had committed, giving them time to repent, and so they would be able to receive penitence. Yet in reality the silence of the prison didn’t help the prisoners. Now studies have found keeping a prisoner isolated for long amounts of time can lead to more damage than good. Many men have been found to have become violently insane during their stay at Eastern State.
People are noticing the similarities in the prison population. America does seem to enjoy putting like groups of people in prison. Are these people innocent? Not always. However, is incarceration the answer to who society deems a menace, absolutely not.
About a week ago, I toured the Juvenile Detention Center located in Egg Harbor City. This facility houses criminals who have committed their offense under the legal age of adulthood. Being able to tour this facility was extremely eye opening and unlike what I expected, as well as jails I have previously toured. My reaction regarding the Juvenile Detention Center was much like my peers, except, a few things stuck out to me, I recognized both positive and negative conditions during the visit. Upon arriving, there were double doors which required one to be closed while the other was opened, this indicated to me that this was a secured facility.
Working with co-workers is not that bad, there are many interesting personalities, but many times I would love to work alone. Lastly, something I did not expect is that you have to physically act out your characters. I actually love to do this! It is probably one of my favorite things to do. I have learned many things from working at Pixar.
This topic was not at all hard to research about as I found a lot of information about it and I also found most of it interesting. I believe prisoners should not be tortured, even if they have committed a crime and their family should have the right to know where they are. Personally, I think the right choice would be to close Camp
“It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.” They do not treat the prisoners very well. When we are going on our trip we will see how the prisoners lived. In their tiny cells, with their toilets. This will show us that we should treat our prisoners better at times.
Community organizing doesn’t seem like an accessible task to undertake, but Saul Alinsky made his movements seem effortless and possible for the common person to initiate. One of his tactics that I truly admired was his ability to blend in with the crowd. Alinsky grew up in the an underprivileged neighborhood and was fortunate to finish his graduate degree in criminal justice. All his graduate research was valuable, but his real education came from his work with the mob in the streets known as “back of the yards”. His tactic was to ingratiate leaders on the streets because they would know more about the habitat than he would.
“....designed to read e-mails and other online communications between suspected criminals, terrorist and spies.” This part means that the technology was used for positive reasons. It was used to try and keep people from doing bad and even horrific things to others. “Not only can the system help combat crime, it can be used in times of natural disasters.” This quote by Lauren Lloyd from “Big Brother Is Watching You, Long Beach: New Police Surveillance System Unveiled”, is talking about how they have a surveillance system and is helpful in helping solve crimes. It is basically used in the purpose to keep the city safe and keeping its people safe and sound. All of these articles are similar to the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four because they all talk about surveillance of the people.
My first court day with Tulsa Municipal Court House Since I was a kid, I had always wanted to be a lawyer. Therefore, me being judge inside a court room made me feel embarrass and ashamed of what I had always plan to become. Although, I tried hard to keep my strength to not let this situation put me down towards my future. It still become a small effect on me. I never would have imagined myself sitting inside a court room in the wrong over traffic tickets.
The cells were different in here, the cells didn’t have bars like the ones in the hall. They had actual doors with tiny windows to peer into. When I was able to peer into the small windows, I could see inmates laying in their beds, reading magazines and whatever else they could do. It amazed me at the amount of privacy they had. The small toilet they had to use was out in the open, anyone could see you.
