Aggressive behaviour may negatively influence other inmates and other people working within the prison such as prison wardens and health care professionals working within the facility. The presence of aggressive prisoners may make these people stressed and depressed. So, giving chlorpromazine to reduce aggressive behaviour may be necessary to ensure the safety of the wardens as well as other inmates if other methods prove unsuccessful. To conclude, the disadvantages of chlorpromazine use in prison greatly outweigh the benefits it brings.
When men are incarcerated, gender issues often become heightened as they seek power or control in the prison. According to Kupers (2005), toxic masculinity involves “the need to aggressively compete and dominate others.” This concept may contribute to certain groups holding more power over others, and leads to the formation of dynamics between sub-communities within the prison. Toxic masculinity frequently results in male offenders resisting mental health treatment or other psychotherapy, since it could be perceived by other inmates as a “vulnerability”. Therefore, male offenders often underreport their emotional issues, and may not reach out for help until they have developed suicidal ideation or psychotic symptoms, (Kupers, 2005).
Therefore our two choices are to release the prisoners, or overcrowd them into jail. The best choice for us is to release the prisoners to save our nation from tumbling into a massive hole. First of all, there are prisoners that should not be behind bars. I’m talking about those who committed an unacceptable act, but are not involved in any violent activities. Those who executed a violent act, most wanted, or dangerous, deserves a spot in jail.
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.
Having individuals locked up and hidden from society is not the right way to go about punishment. Instead the correctional system should guide and mentor those convicted and should help alter their behavior so that they are more suitable to live in society. Sentencing someone to prison without giving them the tools to correct the behavior that was problematic in the first place actually defeats the purpose of the punishment because the individual will likely repeat the same offense over
Selective incapacitation targets a specific type of offender, the type that is generally dangerous and more likely to continue offending outside of prison. Their prison sentences may be lengthier because of their unstable characteristics. There is a problem with selective incapacitation though; discrimination between races and ethnic minorities happen because they are more commonly found to be in the selective incapacitation approach. The other more expansionist approach is general incapacitation where the broad use of imprisonment is utilized “to achieve large gains in crime prevention by locking away even minor offenders” (Alarid & Reichel, 2017, p. 20). However, with this approach, the problem posed is overpredicting which results in avoidable long sentences for a population that would generally not
Introduction There are several different programs focused on offenders. These programs range from religious, educational, medical and job training related. The main goal in each program is to reduce the chances of them returning back to their old habit that originally placed them in jail or in other words reduce recidivism. Recidivism is a very important element in the criminal justice system, because reducing or increasing the number of re-offenses in the community could be beneficial or make the community flood with criminals and their behavior. Without a focus on recidivism, officers will be arresting the same offenders repeatedly and the individual will not be getting the help they need, which could be the difference of them being a productive member of society or not.
Capital punishment is often justified by saying that by executing the murders birth of new murders would be prevented. Executions especially when they are more painful and public create a sense of horror and halts those tempted towards criminality to violate laws. In countries such as Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Nigeria and New York crime rates are exceptionally high and this affects the population there. The police also works inefficiently in these countries and the criminals easily escape from punishments. Punishments in public especially capital punishment highly controls the crime rate in most of the countries with low crime rate.
Second, the Bureau could prohibit the construction of new super-max facilities and implement alternatives to limit the negative impact of indefinite super-max confinement. Although it is clear that super-max facilities will continue playing some role in American prisons, some adjustments could be made to alleviate the risk of mental harm afflicting inmates. The state could adopt a number of different alternatives. First, the State could disperse or concentrate the most violent and disruptive inmates throughout the system by meticulously planning the best options (Mears 2006). Second, the State could build segregation cells in each prison for each facilities ' most disruptive inmates (Mears 2006).
Prison gangs thrive on crime within the facility. If not addressed their involvement in crime will continue to grow and pose a threat to other inmates, staff, and the institution. If procedures are not put into place then gang membership will only continue and remain a safety concern. Administration must ensure their staff members are adequately trained and know how to act and deal with the gangs. Because the prison community is so private more research needs to be done to understand the workings of prison gangs and get more current, detailed, data.
Dealing with sexual offenders is not always an easy task to do. Many of the times, the offender will either cooperate or not cooperate. That being said, ATSA has set up a list of regulations that employees should considered. The one I thought were interesting was the fact that motivation inside of the facility and outside is crucial when it comes to the overall treatment of the offender (“ATSA Practice Guidelines and Ethics Order Form,” 2015). If, for example, the treatment is neglectful from the inside of the facility and no support is given by those at home, there’s a high chance that the offender will become an habitual criminal.
Experts conclude this practice is both widespread and underreported. Staff use solitary confinement as a security management tool; until more effective solutions are available and implemented, youth will continue to experience substantial negative repercussions of being confined in a solitary cell. Facility staff need effective and easily-implementable alternatives they can use. Some of the psychological distress from spending time in confinement can lead to instances of self-harm, suicide,
