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.

According to Beckett, Programs such as Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) have the mission and authority to locate and deport unauthorized workers, immigration suspect that violated the law and people who are a threat to public safety. If ICE has the authority to arrest any suspect who is violating the law, than immigration raid should be morally correct, but what if ICE is violating the law too, is it still correct to continue immigration raids? ICE is taking advantage of their authority by extending jail stays. A recent study shows that people with ICE detainer request staid longer in jail (46.3 days more) than those without detainers.
