Prisoners should deserve the right to vote because it is guaranteed by Amendment 15 that all prisoners should have the right to vote. My contention is that Amendment 15 states the right to vote cannot be taken away from people who had committed a crime. Firstly, Amendment 15 is not being applied to prisoners because there are over two million people who are in prison. Secondly, taking away their right to vote after they get out of prison is unfair.Thirdly,it wouldn 't be fair if we got to vote and they did not. All felons deserve to have the right to vote because they are still part of this country and this society.Some people have made several mistakes in their lives that they would love to go back in time to fix everything they did that made
The abuse of power is all around us, and Civil Forfeiture is no exception. The idea behind this process is something that could really help our country, but unfortunately when put in the hands of certain authority figures it loses that privilege and becomes increasingly negative towards American citizens. Of course there are many examples as to how Civil Forfeiture is not used properly, but the most obvious one is the abuse of innocent people. Police do not only target criminals but people who have done nothing to break the law. They do this in order to benefit themselves finically, as particular states have laws in place where the officer gets to keep one hundred percent of the money seized.
He was only 18 and was always in and out of jail if he had a real role model in his life then things would have been so much more different. He had so much potential to be a good person but ended up in a bad family. He should be given another chance at life and give the help he and his mother need. He didn’t even have a father figure to guide him. In my opinion the sentence they gave him is not wrong but I feel as if his mother needs some help
UNICOR is a government corporation that gives jobs to inmates to prepare them for their release into society. This provides a middle person so companies do not have to directly interact with prisoners. However many issues arise with this because of the concerns with quality, ethics, security and public backlash. A lot of people would think that hiring inmates would be unfair to law abiding citizens, because not only were their jobs taken away from them due to outsourcing, but also due to prison sourcing. Why should prisoners have jobs when most people in society cannot find one?
It is much harder to obtain drugs and alcohol in prison then in society. Thus an assumption can be made that incarceration by itself is a rehabilitative method. While this is true in many ways, going cold turkey off of drugs does nothing to treat their minds, and habits when free. By having these programs available to all prisoners it will allow them to work out their problems
If most Americans think the same as me no. No, they do not think inmates get treated fairly and proper treatment. I think the reason why is lack of money why they don 't get proper treatment. Plus, anyone with common sense knows how mean guards are to inmates. Yes, they might get some good treatment, but it 's like the real world there is politics and favoritism to be played everywhere.
Since elaborating on the issues with the criminal justice system and the 13th Amendment, now an inside look on the conditions will show the true similarity between slavery and incarceration. Due to the leasing of prisoners, prisons and jails have become extremely industrialized. Many programs focusing on manufacturing and construction, but not many prisons offer educational programs for the prisoners to be able to learn how to support themselves once they get on parole and finish their sentence. Many convicts will finish their sentence and leave prison to join society-which has a stigma against convicts- yet they have no knowledge on how to create a resume, apply for jobs, or apply for food stamps. So many finish finally having to be able to leave the walls, to be welcomed to another stigma, less chance of being employed, little to no money, no experience in a job field, and little to none education-at minimum a high school degree.
The system is too nice honestly. The system is lacking really horribly with incarceration. The reason why reform should happen is because If you give prisoners a certain amount of years and tell that they are assigned to go to a program they would not feel so guilty . This is why the crime rate has increased prisoners are not getting enough time incarcerated. Jail isn’t a vacation it’s a punishment you’re not supposed to make prisoners feel so comfortable that they will still do wrong and end up coming back.
All our life we commit mistakes, but should a young teen’s life be taken away in a an instant because of an idiotic mistake they made? According to the eighth amendment, “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” It would be cruel to give a young teen a mandatory life sentence without parole without giving them the chance to redeem him/herself and get their life back together. I understand that there are crimes that have no forgiveness, however there are several teens that don 't realize what they are doing. “Young people are biologically different from adults” (Garinger 1). In this case, I agree with the majority of the Supreme Court Justice who believe that mandatory life
Other jurors based the fact that the accused lived in a slum and that slum residents are delinquents by nature. The results of these informal practices only proved that the accused wasn't guilty because the arguments were not valid enough to incriminate him. Leadership did emerge differently from a small group setting because a designated leader should not let a group member overtake his position. So Juror #8 as a initiator should have never tried to take the position of Juror #1. But it was needed for him to do that so that the group could reach into a correct decision.
