Some people may say that if guns were banned, criminals would not be able to get hold of them, and most crimes would disappear. This sounds like the perfect solution; however, it is not true. Criminals will always find a way to obtain guns, leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless. Since 1976, it has been illegal to own a handgun or to keep any gun from your home unlocked and fully assembled in Washington, D. C.; however, it is the “murder capital of the world” (Kopel). As you can see, banning guns does not eliminate
The last way Andy deals with this death is that he escapes from the prison. Throughout the years in the prison, Andy was doing many things, like plan his escape from Shawshank. He planned how he was going to escape and what he was going to do on the outside when he was free. When Andy found out that he did not kill his wife, he went to the warden to try to convince him to let him out, but the warden did not care. Warden wanted Andy to stay in jail and help him get more illegal money.
if an ex-offender has no job, s/he has no way to pay supervision fees, which then gets the parolee sent back to prison for parole violation. If a parolee cannot satisfy a parole officer that s/he has a stable address, the parolee can (and generally WILL) be violated and sent back to prison. A parolee can be violated for simply being in the presence of another ex-offender. This limits some families from helping one family member, because the family already let another ex-offender come home. It also limits employment prospects; parolees could technically be violated for working together or for working for an employer who also happens to be an ex-offender.
According to Walter, there had never been official paperwork to make his adoption legal. Walter’s uncle, Herbert Dean, had had been let out of jail. Walter said, “Uncle Lee had a habit of talking out of the side of his mouth.” His Uncle Lee said that it was because it would prevent the prison guards from seeing you talk, as stated on page thirty eight.

In my English class I read the book called Monster written by Walter Dean Myers. It was about a young man called Steve Harmon who was arrested for allegedly being a part of a crime gone horribly wrong, which sadly resulted in a man losing his life. It also spoke about what Steve had to endure throughout that entire process of that trail. In the end even tho Steve knew that the crime will occur he still was found not guilty. I believe that Steve Harmon should have been found not guilty because, he did not give a signal and he also did not receive any part of the money that taken from the robbery.
In the 60’s the population did not sentence people unless the crime was really intolerable for example rape, murder and grand theft, however in the 21st century people are incarcerated for the possession of drug such as marijuana although some states already legalized and it does not matter how much of it was found on the person if it is of large quantity or even in small quantity. I find this ridiculous for the reason being for those who are incarcerated it goes on their record such that if they apply for a job they will have to state that they have been in jail and this usually risks their chances of getting the job which means they will be unemployed and they will do whatever it takes to make ends meet. This usually means they will upgrade up their crime such as armed robbery or even selling cocaine and this brings us full circle of what is wrong with the justice system In the end, we have to think about how the country looks if we have the highest number of prisoners than other nations. This could be seen as a government that spends too much time cracking down on minor offenses instead of focusing on the bigger crimes such as terrorism or even internet crimes. So, if we do actually focus on improving the society by providing people with jobs then we will not need prisons since the majority of people would have what they
“To me speaking spanish translated into being poor.” Barrientos also feel that she is judged by society and other Latinas for not speaking her cultural language. In this quote she explains the reaction of people when they figure that she doesn’t speak spanish.”I hear the silent snag, the momentary hesitation I have come to expect at this part of the exchange.” In his literacy Malcolm X states that even though he was in prison, he “never had been so truly free in his life” Malcolm X said this quote because by reading and writing he experienced the world “behind bars”. He could not go anywhere else, but by reading he learned more about the outside world and it gave him a piece of imagery. While he was behind bars he learned to read and write. Malcolm
There he was looking through the bars of the jail cell plotting the day he, Randall Nitts would break out. It was an ordinary day in New York City for Randall, but today would be different. “The last thing I remember was the sound of the cell door clashing with the wall. There was nothing that made me more mad because I did not see anything wrong with what I did.”, he exclaimed.” You see Randall was an idealist only not the good kind, he thought about things like that we should not have any form of plant life, (not knowing that it would kill everyone). He also thought about how wrong democracy is and that our world should be a dictatorship and that he should rule everything.
He can get inmates enrolled in helpful programs that will help them stay off their addictions. However, Joe does not qualify for that program because he is not a United States citizen. “I don’t care if he can prove he did heroin every day. He’s not getting into that program.” Inmates can apply for the RDAP if they have documents proving they have a problem. The documents allowed include letters from mental health professionals, social workers or a doctor.
When I was released my probation officer and I were discussing my potential plans, and she said bluntly that I would not get a job in the career I had chosen. At that moment, I decided that I was going prove her wrong and finish my degree in accounting. However, a year after graduating from Southwest TN. Community College I was not able to find a job due to my criminal background. In that matter, convicted felon in my opinion do not have a true chance to re-enter society.
