Solitary confinement is when a prisoner is locked away in a relatively small cell away from any human contact. Inmates in isolation spend most of their day—23 hours to be exact—locked away. They are given one hour to go outside; however, once there, they meet yet another small cage. (Do I cite if it’s a summary of my sources?) Solitary confinement is used for a variety of reasons—some that are quite absurd.
A prison is a structure where people are being held legally for punishment because of the illegal crime(s) they have committed. Recent studies say about 200,000 people end up in jail each year in the United States. Children and teenagers have considered their school as if they were in jail. School can last for about 13 years of one’s childhood, but after all those years it is up to the person if they want to continue after that. Kids and teenagers use prison, as a metaphor, to compare them attending school because of the similarities that they have between the two.
Many people think kids that commit massive crimes deserve to be put in a adult jail house but don’t realize that they are young immature human beings. There has been many cases of kids being tried as adults and being sentence to life in prison. We can’t continue to put these young kids in adult prison, they should be put in juvenile hails where they belong. Kids are being shown no mercy when it comes to being put in jails. Kids aren’t allowed to do certain things because you need to be an adult, so the same rules should be applied we it comes to give children jail time.
There was a small corridor for the prison yard, a closet for solitary confinement, and a bigger room across from the prisoners for the guards and warden.the prisoners were to stay in their cells or the yard, all day. The guards worked in teams of three for eight-hour shifts. As for the guards they were told they didn't have to stay on site after their shift was over. After it all the guards were just become completely different people. For example, complete different attitudes, they did not have any respect or sympathy for any of the other “prisoners”.
Solitary confinement is the act of housing a convict for 22-23 hours a day in an isolated cell, completely free from any human contact for an extended period of time. Going from days to possibly decades while sitting in these cells. There are more than 80,000 men, women, and children in solitary confinement in prisons across the United States according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Not including thousands more in jails, juvenile facilities, immigration detention centers and military prisons. After experiencing confinement some inmates suffer from negative mental health effects that can possibly lead to suicide.
You don’t know whether you will be released in a few days, a week, a month, a year, or decades. You could do nothing but slowly go insane. This small room is very much real. As a law abiding citizen if you never break the law, you will never have to experience the subtle horrors of this torture chamber. Isolation in prison or jail is wrong, and it has more negative than positive effects.
The disabled prisoner is considered the least taken cared for because no “special” rights were issued to them. Think about it a prisoner with no legs or no arms and they need assistance but the correction officer opens the cell doors he does not care at all. So around forty years ago president jimmy carter signed a document that stated “The Rehabilitation Act was created to apply to federal executive agencies “so in sort term that meant that disabled prisoners will receive care for all of those years with the disability. And now some but not “all” prisons give the prisoners assistance or give them prosthetics every day inmates who have this tragic disability are routinely denied their aid on a daily basis. Which makes that a nightmarish survival
States that do not use Capital Punishment usually have a lower murder rate than states that do. The South, where 80 percent of all executions take place, has a higher murder rate than the North. People wouldn't want to go to prison where anything can happen. The inmates at prison hate it because they basically have no life in prison. The death penalty makes society more dangerous by further increasing violence through the brutalization effect.
However, the life of the person was spent lonely without the family that implies the no meaningful use in the life. The story ’15 to life: Kenneth’s Story’ is based upon the child or juvenile injustice to the imprisonment for their commitment of crimes. The structure of the film is that the crime committed by a person in his childhood or being the juvenile, and about the impact of crime in the remaining part of his life in the prison and whether his life is changed after the imprisonment. The main thesis of the film is developed on taking consideration of the rules and laws of the U.S and their justice towards the juveniles. The Kenneth Young after imprisonment trying to set free from prison since he is rehabilitated.
Thomson’s article “Startling Finds on Teenage Brains” allows readers to understand that unlike adults, juveniles undergo biological changes which increases the likelihood of them committing crimes. Compounding this evidence with society’s infatuation with violence as depicted in Jenkin’s article “On the Punishment of Teen Killers”, readers can begin to acknowledge that contrary to adults, juveniles who commit heinous crimes are not in complete control of their actions. Furthermore, as a society we should no longer stand to sentence juveniles to life without parole because juveniles are still “malleable”, able to be reformed which is made evident in Garinger article “ Juveniles Don’t Deserve Life Sentences”. As informed members of society we have to be bridge builders, who are capable of crossing between the adult and adolescent world. It is only through these bridges that we are able to rescue kids from themselves.
