They also manage the overall budget and allocate certain money to certain needed programs for prisons. The government is so important when it comes to prisons as they are protecting the people behind bars and preventing them from being a burden on society and rehabilitating them. That being said, it is essential for the government to have control of prisons and monitor the status of prisoners to ensure total wellbeing. Overall, United States prison policy must be amended and enforced on various levels to accommodate for the ultimate mental and physical well being of prisoners. As well as systemic properties, the government also dictates prisoners rights.
Since the mass shooting at a night club in Orlando Florida, the LGBTQ community has been brought to light on the discrimination they have endured from other people because of who they are attracted to and what they believe to see in a partner. Due to the way most people were raised, they handle these differences violently and showing their distaste for the individuals because they relate to their old customs; as for religion, they cannot be interested in the same sex. From homosexuals struggling to get a marriage license, they are now struggling to become parents. Political people are wanting to ban the majority of the states to not let gay and lesbian couples adopt. Some people view this as another home for loving parents to get the opportunity to take care of a child in need.
• Denial of the right to liberty and security in the political prison camps The denial of the right to liberty and security and other human rights violations are particularly blatant in political prison camps. Political prison camps (kwan-li-so) are the final destination of those suspected of being politically, ideologically or economically subversive to the system. Kwanli-so are operated by the Ministry of State Security and the SSD. The Government has recently started acknowledging the existence of these camps, even though they are well-known and dreaded by ordinary citizens for being often places of no return, as victims imprisoned there have nearly no chance to ever be released. Four political prison camps are known to exist; smaller
When you are locked up respect is valued over everything. Inmates who have been locked up for a long time are given respect and are usually left alone. On the opposite end of that spectrum new inmates are often harassed and bullied by others because they haven’t earned any respect. When
To resolve these issues certain measures need to be taken. In order to stop the abuse between inmates and guards there need to be more type of security when giving a guard its job. To become a guard you usually just need just need to have a high school diploma and go through the training course.

In the background check they need to check mental stability, prior criminal history, and overall personal information about the individual.
Many feel that will have nothing to support themselves if they report it violence because the abuser is the breadwinner. Others are scared for their actual life to tell anyone. There has been more attention drawn to the issue over the past couple decades, but only less than a century ago, victims sat in silence and if they spoke out about it, no one believed them and/or no one helped. Even now, there has to be laws just to make the police respond to these cries for help. This is mentioned by Julian Leigh in a book about the different viewpoints of domestic violence: “Because the police are often reluctant to become involved in domestic violence cases, more than half the states now require law enforcement officers to arrest those accused by their partners of domestic violence.”
An attitude that rendered the life of my friend, Luigi, difficult since he was not willing to hide his sexual orientation and faced disapproval and discrimination including from his family. The relationship between masculinity and morality is complicated since masculinity requires auto-control and a high sense of morality, while men are perceived as violent and predatory. The concept of overly dominant violent heads of family is rejected today and violence against women is condemned. However, on one occasion I had the questionable pleasure of talking to a young man that told me with great pride about beating his supposedly unfaithful girlfriend and her supposed lover severely. Even if this was a single case, the norms regarding masculinity are conflicting and
Throughout the history, homosexuals have faced much discrimination and obstacles, where they are have been subjugated by the masses. Their rights have always been suppressed, where they have yet to achieve full legal equality as heterosexual couples and are often persecuted for their inability to conform into what society deems to be “normal” or what is “appropriate”. The homosexual movement was instigated in Germany on 1871, where there were harsh penalties for those who were caught in the act of sexual intercourse with those of the same sex, which was also seen as huge taboo in the Christian bible. The traces of prejudicial treatment towards gays and lesbians can be traced back to Roman Law and towards the medieval times, where the criminalizing
25 Oct 2015. In this article, the author explains the many ways men are discriminated against. Moreover, her describes how sexism against men is often dismissed by society and why.

Title 42 U.S.C. § 1997e(a) provides that “[n]o action shall be brought with respect to prison conditions under § 1983 of this title, or any other Federal law by a prisoner confined in any jail, prison, or other correctional facility until such administrative remedies as are available are exhausted.” See also Moore v. Bennette, 517 F.3d 717, 725 (4th Cir. 2008). The Supreme Court has interpreted the language of this provision broadly, holding that the phrase “prison conditions” encompasses “all inmate suits about prison life, whether they involve general circumstances or particular episodes, and

Gay marriage is an import issue to debate. Although the congress approved a resolution about that topic, some people still think it cannot be accepted. Especially in many Asian countries and some countries in Europe, in their opinion, homosexuality is an illness, and Gay Marriage is absolutely illegal. However, in 1990, WHO (World Health Organization) eliminated the homosexuality illness out of the disease list. According to them, they said that it was the natural sexual desire, but some people cannot accept that.
Contraband can enter institutions through the mail, visitors or staff (Bohm and Haley, 2011).Contraband can be a very dangerous situation in an institution. There is no one way to prevent contraband from entering the institution. There will always be the one staff member or citizen visiting, who will attempt to betray the system by bringing in illegal items. Unfortunately, our jails, and prisons are understaffed and overworked. Searching everyone coming in and going out is one of the most effective ways to prevent contraband.
