It is clear to see that if incarcerated individuals could vote while in prison many negative factors they face would be prevented. However, Politician’s wouldn’t want this to happen because they know that this would go against or hurt their campaign for many reasons, one being they wouldn’t be able to successfully persuade both incarcerated individuals and those of us in society due to one party (incarcerated individuals or citizens) being able to benefit from the promises of the candidate and one not. This wouldn’t be beneficial to those who oversee private prisons either because they would be prosecuted if the truths came to light about the mistreatment and injustice of those who are in jail face in their day to day lives. These wrongdoings could be changed in many ways but if I had to step up and do it personally I would demonstrate through signing a petition or marching for change. Signing a petition that would speak out and highlight things that need to change to ensure a safe life for their inmates would ultimately cause the overseers to consider my proposition to prevent a scandal.
As a result of these privileges given to the inmates upon their arrival, the prisoner have no real incentive to follow the rules and regulations therefore prison officials must bribe and coerced them. A way to fix the defects of total power, prison officials should change or eliminate the reward system. Instead of providing inmates with rewards upon their arrivals at the prison, guards should use a positive reinforcement system where inmates get to enjoy certain privileges if and only if they follow the rules and regulations of the prison. Another structural defects are the inadequacies of the prison staff. Almost half of all the guards at the New Jersey State prison were temporary employees.
The death penalty has also put innocent people to death. Housing inmates for life would contribute to the overcrowding problem, but financially the death penalty does not make sense. Solving the problem of mandatory minimum sentences, the war on drugs, three strikes laws and other failures of the prison system would make room for life inmates and not use the death penalty. The cost is extremely high, and it is not worth the risk. There is no evidence that the death penalty prevents crimes from happening.
Hard Rock does things that the other prisoners would not imagine doing because of his reputation o f being violent. The next line “We dreamed of doing but could not bring ourselves to do” (504) describes how the prisoners wanted to stand up for themselves but they did not have the courage. Knight uses analogies to describe
The view many are accepted to use prisons to indicate that certain forms of behavior will not be tolerated, and to protect them from those who refuse to play by the rules, has become a policy position that dares not speak its name. This has been put unchallenged over and over again as a paradoxical illustration of how the size of a prison reflects the level crime, not the victimhood of society. Incarceration is an effective program in regards to the regulation of crime rates due to a portrayal of how Tyrone Hoard presented the society the insufficiency of diversion programs as followed by statistical graphs and its persistence in criminal offering. A widespread use of incarceration manages the increase of crime rates, whereas alternatives in which the government has invested in this cognitive behavioral therapy is spineless. Tyrone Howard, who was a criminal given numerous opportunities for diversion programs rather than jailed due to drug charges, allegedly murdered New York Police Officer Randolph Holder.
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.
A huge problem across the nation is that offenders are returning to prison after previously being convicted of a crime. This may not seem like a big deal, but this shows that our prisons are failing us on the one thing the system promises to do, which is to keep us safe. Prison is supposed to be a place where we use deterrence to try and keep people from doing illegal things, but obviously it is not working. Since recidivism is such a huge issue, we need to find the issue and figure out how to resolve it to better our country and our people. First, let’s discuss the economic aspect of recidivism.
Numerous people may argue that the homeless deserve to be jailed. They claim that if they are kept in a cell rather than being on the streets, they will not be able to solicit. This is not an appropriate solution because they will continue asking for help in order to survive once they are released. They, like any other human being, have hardships, often with negative effects. In a myriad of cases, their troubles land them a spot on the streets, and because of this, they do what anyone would do in a similar situation, they do their best to stay alive.
And the fact that in layman’s terms, the law is carried out by a bunch of people that are usually right but might sometimes be wrong in certain cases doesn’t actually help. So, this means we should justify breaking the law. However, before I give up and justify breaking the law, consider what would happen if whenever an individual felt that the law was wrong and decided that a mistake was made and justified breaking the law and broke it. If everyone did the same the law would be more a series of guidelines for people to consider and not necessarily follow, and when the law holds no power, courts will be useless and eventually in my opinion, chaos would ensue. People will do whatever they want without a fear of consequences because they will always find a reason to justify breaking the law I believe what makes this whole law argument extremely confusing and difficult is the nature of the law.
Entering a prison can and will be a culture shock, prison changes you overtime either positive or negatively. If I were to be entering prison for the first time I would have a couple concerns regarding my well-being and safety. From the moment I get arrested I will start prisonization, which is understanding the norms in prison and adjusting to the environment (Clear, Reisig, Cole, 2016). A concern of mine walking into prison is trying not to get too close to other inmates. Going into prison is a scary experience and once you enter typically you do not know anyone.
Since both the frisk and search was not reasonable or lawful, under the Fourth Amendment, this would be considered a violation and such evidence seized from Christina should be suppressed. The danger that would result if the court decided against my arguments is that there would be more police brutality. Although the concern that correlates with public safety is that there would be high crime rates, we need to find a way to balance public safety and an individual’s freedom. More often than not in today’s society, police officers are over using their power and often get away with it. As a result, people of color or Latinos are often the ones who suffer, since they are the targets.
