If my state was planning on opening up a supermax prison, I would present them with the ways inmates can earn their way out is by self-control, following the direction of the staff, and participate in work-study programs as well as educational programs. Although “supermax prisons subject inmates to extreme isolation and sensory deprivation for extended periods of time, the main goal and focus are to teach them how to obey the laws of the facility and have respect for the staff and other inmates”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). In order to released from supermax inmates will have to go under monitoring to ensure that they have gain control of their behaviors
There are some positives to sentencing reform. According to Source #1, “In 1965… paid countries to keep nonviolent offenders...provide rehabilitation services.” This shows that prisons are funding for reforming prisoners who have nonviolent
Prisons are full of people who have done unethical things learning how to become ethical. It is absolutely crucial that correctional officers make the right ethical decisions when working with criminals. Correctional officers are in charge of prisoners and could often abuse their power of authority. Within women’s correctional facilities many officers could have sexual relationships with the inmates.
This in of itself can help prevent some of the violence that already occurs in prisons. Supermax prisons are designed for violent criminals who cannot function within the general population of standard prisons (Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). These criminals generally display patterns of violent and anti-social behavior, and they are segregated in order to maintain order. If my state were planning to build a supermax prison, I would implement certain programs in order for the inmates to potentially be
However, if this program is not performed with discretion and truly aiming to influence positively on the ex-convicts by making them a better person and giving them a chance to get back in society without being discriminated, it may result in recidivism. Examples of rehabilitation programs would be educational programs that are offered in jail before the convicts are set free, probation services that will allow the convict show some change in a specific interval of time and even include them in job placement agencies which will help them find jobs. In conclusion, crime nowadays is increasing around the world and surely there are many ideas out there that would be useful to reduce crime rates, however, we must start from somewhere in order to achieve results and be a role model for the other countries to make a change, so why not begin with Bulgaria. Nevertheless, with the above mentioned five specific recommendations and examples that I have listed, I truly think that crime rates in Bulgaria may be reduced if they are enforced and adhered to
To destroy the confederacy and make the south rejoin the union, extreme legal measures such as passing amendments needed to be taken by the government to affirm Union’s power over the south. The government also successfully being able to pass these amendments created a less discriminatory society and helped the south ease their beliefs on slavery, so that it could be easier for them to reunite with the
The end of slavery led to a hope of economic freedom for the African Americans; allowing them to break free from the grips of white dominance. The chance of equality is what led to the struggle for the whites to try to maintain their supremacy and keep the African Americans at a “lower
The Civil War was now about to save the Union and end slavery. Then it did just that. Lincoln also thought that by saving the Union was just the start of not only equality for slaves, but equality for women, so everyone would be treated equal and be able to vote like
The Civil War has ended and now we need to reunite the states. The Johnson plan was the best plan because of various reasons. One of the reasons is because they had to ratify the 13 amendments. The thirteenth amendment was to slavery. Abolishing slavery is good because that means everyone has freedom, and freedom is what all African-Americans want.
Due to the Missouri Compromise, new states in the North were automatically free states. The Northerns started to hate slavery and wanted to push other states to become free states. The South could not let this happen because their economy depending on slavery. Since the slave masters did not have to pay their workers, everything they sold was 100% profit to the South. If slavery was abolished, they’d have to find other ways to farm their plantations and would undoubtedly make less money.
As we examine the mending topic of slavery reparations, it is essential remember the reason why repairing the negative consequences done to the all the different minorities who have experienced discrimination can do more harm than good. The best method is to help set up a better future for by insuring that money is spent on improving their lives through education and job opportunities. Not only this will guarantee the increased well-being of everyone who felt these effects, but this will also set equality between the different racial groups in
The purpose of the Underground Railroad was to free slaves from the ownership of slave owners, and did just that. Over 100,000 thousand slaves were freed from slave owners, and they managed to live their own lives. While slaves escaping did bring about anti-black sentiment from the Southern States most clearly seen in the Fugitive Slave Act, it brought support for abolition because white people could see that all the slaves were just as human as the rest of them. This may not have changed their beliefs of inferiority, but it did change their beliefs that African Americans deserved such cruel treatment. After the awareness of the slaves’ capabilities and the living in communities with slaves, white people in the North that still supported slavery changed their stance after seeing first hand that black people, not just the few free blacks, were similar to everyone else.
I agree with them on the subject of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage because I believe that all people deserve the federal benefits that come with it. I also agree with their stance on improving conditions for minorities and women. We also need to work harder to preserve our environment. I do not agree with the democrat’s stance on gun control. I believe that guns and other weapons (when used correctly) are what keep our country safe.
