As I was choosing which 8 point project to do, a friend in the class suggested researching Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment. Prior to this assignment, I actually had not heard about this experiment. After researching this happening, and reading the full story, as written by Dr. Zimbardo, I, in all honesty, immediately began to feel ill. How could people be so horrible to one another? How could the people portraying the guards live with themselves after treating the prisoners so poorly? There was so much that happened here that was so, so wrong, all because of power.
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.
That night when the police came was probably the first night that Adnan was able to get a good night sleep. According to crime stoppers 9 out of 10 first time killers will not be able to get a good night sleep because they are restless, because the guilt of killing someone eats them alive. If Adnan really did kill Hae than why was he not restless and sound asleep, the guilt would have especially been bothered by killing someone because the whole community would have been against him and his family. The fact that Adnan never got to say his side of the story makes him innocent alone. How can you throw some one in jail without hearing what they had to say or their point of view on how things played out.
The law specifies that an employer who fills out an application for employment as a criminal justice professional, they will not face discrimination in any shape or form, even if a man is applying to work at a women 's prison. That being said, there are a couple of problems that males could face while working at a women 's prison, one of which is the corruption where inmates may offer a sexual favors of a inmate, especially if the mate is single and currently looking for a partner. The inmate and officer, at that point, should be held responsible in the court of law and receive proper disciplinary actions. Unfortunately, women start feeling sad after a while and seek officers in a sexual manner to fulfill their desires without knowing
Introduction According to Dowden & Andrews (1999), since 2010, there has been a growing concern over the increasing rate of incarceration for women: an alarming rate of 3.4 percent annually. Some experts like Kruttschnitt (2010) explain that the growth of incarcerated women population is due mainly to two major factors; one contributor to this phenomenon is the war on drugs. As politicians are passing more aggressive anti-drug policies and as police are cracking down on drug offenders, increasing amounts of women are being caught with illegal substances. The second reason is the the switch from indeterminate sentencing to determinate sentencing which is forcing women to stay in prison for longer than is necessary. This is more apparent because
They would get out and go right back to the things they were doing before. Never thinking twice, just going out and doing it over and over until they get stopped or caught. You would think someone would learn and prison would help but it doesn't always turn out to be that way. Over 50% of people who go to prison end up getting in more trouble while staying in the facility (32% of the people get in more trouble just for fighting another inmate). Changing is a hard thing to do over time, and when people test you sometimes it's hard to control yourself.
Why did the government did not pay them their bonus early?If the government would have pay their bonus earlier, all that would have been prevented. Herbert Hoover did not react to the situation, all he did was provide some sanitary facilities, clothes, tents and food. After a month, President Hoover gave the order to remove all veterans from the capital. “The police tried, but when a officer panicked and fired into a crowd, killing two veterans, the secretary of war asked if he could send in the army troops” as it was stated on the US History book on chapter 9, page number 303. What president Hoover did was insane, he knew that those people were in need of jobs and homes.
Not only were careers ruined, but some victims even spent a year in prison for their false crimes. Film makers blamed others and said they regretted ever working with Communists to be left alone. Those whose careers were affected changed their names so they could keep making
Neighboring buildings, had dusts on the inside of the buildings for months, leading to many workers with several respirator issues. If the United States government didn’t cut corners with its research and actual air testing, many people lives would’ve been saved today. Lying to the public proved to be a bad decision when it came to the health of the people. They cut corners to save money. They even refused to give masks and ventilators to those who were working down at Ground Zero.
The study was planned to last for a couple of weeks, but it ended after six days that has happened because of the cruelty of the guards and the suffering of the prisoners. I think the experiment was very important and successful because that help the social scientist to understand how individual
This is more in reference to solitary confinement or isolation within our juvenile detention centers which has been proven to have damaging effects on children. The article focuses on only using solitary confinement when absolutely necessary. There is no justice system a Legal System that is more all messed up with the Greedy and power hungry even the Unions that Perpetuate the Crimes against a Criminal, some would call it perpetuating Mental Illness under the Guise of "Justice!". Effecting not just the Prisoners but the staff as well, If You were suffering from mental health issues when oYou started Your Term or Job,, You will be Questioning Your sanity and that of Your Employer, Prisoners, and fellow Guards as well as Your faith in Humanity
After reading the article, I do agree that juveniles should be segregate from the adult prison for protection. However, I don 't agree with the solitary confinement and being restrained in small spaces. Most of these juvenile offenders have nonviolent criminal charges. Solitary confinement can cause all kinds of mental and psychological problems for juveniles. There have been cases where juveniles committ suicide while in adult prison because they have experienced physical abuse, mistreatment by staff members and long stays in solitary confinement.
The article explains how sexual assault continues to be a problem until this very day. When someone is sexually assaulted, it is very hard for them to cope with the fact that someone has touched them in the wrong way. For the ones who commits the assault, it will only become worse for them. A National Study says, “The main source of inmates’ knowledge of prison sex appears to come from their conversations with other inmates”(Response to the Prison Rape Elimination Act). Some inmates could portray the role of acting as if they are there for the victim to talk to, but there are other things that could result from this.
When massive amounts of black women are put into prisons with women who carry infectious diseases, it puts the well-being of women of color at risk (Freudenberg). Incarcerated black women face many health problems; research shows that compared to other underprivileged women, “they have higher rates of recent substance use problems, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and other sexually transmitted diseases, and mental health problems” (Freudenberg). In 2004, almost 73% of women in prisons had a mental health problem, or symptoms of a mental disorder, compared to 55% of incarcerated men (Incarcerated Women). These various health problems suffered by black women in prison are something they have to endure for the rest of their
