Progressive reformers realized the values and strategies that once were effective in battling the tumultuous effect of urbanization, industrialization, and mass immigration to be ineffective. The theories proposed by psychologist Sigmund Freud and naturalist Charles Darwin launched a new conversation in the reform community. Reformers such as Brockway turned to this new “scientific knowledge” in order to combat the crumbling notions of reform, pushing progressive strategies to focus on the nature of the offender, rather then the offence (Blomberg & Lucken, 2010, pp.61-71).
With gang violence continually getting worse in the United States, prisons and their staff need to make sure they are ready to take on dealing with them. This includes having the right amount of staff so chaos doesn 't break out. It is important for everyone to be aware in these situations so in the long run the government systems do not actually make it worse (Trulson, Marquart, and Kawucha). Correctional officers and guards are an important reason to why prison gangs exist and are thriving. Officers use to be able to know the names of all the inmates, thus the inmates tended to behave better for they knew if they violated a code they would get in trouble.

Paroling authorities play a vital role in correctional systems. They make most of the decisions concerning the time of releasing a number of criminals from prison. They set the required conditions of release. They also make responses concerning violations of supervision during the post release period of offenders. The paroling authorities in correctional facilities play a similar role to the courts. Both the court and paroling authorities participate in the decision making process.

Reading the article made me acknowledge what prison guards really do and how their everyday life is about in the prisons while they perform their work. I didn't realized that correctional officers don't get an acknowledgment from the government and the community as regularly as they ought to.
