The right to vote is a privilege for people, who are working, contribute to the society. They should stop trying to prove that they have every human right like any other ‘free' citizen of a community because the reason why they are in jail is because they breach someone else's human rights and these are the remedies of their actions. The only group of prisoners that I believe can have a second chance to be part of the society again are these with short prison sentence, I think they deserve the
Banishment also tries to rehabilitate them back to the society but that rarely works. Rehabilitating an offender back to society is a hard and almost impossible job because of their criminal status. There’s no way to deny the fact that people are very judgmental, so it denies the opportunity of reforming the wrongdoer. Another reason as to why banishment isn’t always the punishment someone receives, is their safety. Since nobody is really there to watch over the criminal it’s hard to keep track of his or her actions and safeness.
The conscience is there to purposefully guide human minds. Before one decides to seek acceptance from others, there is need to consult the mind because it always has the best solutions to the problems we face. The voice from our mind, the conscience, is affected by our interaction in the society (Giles, p 99). Therefore, the quote advices individuals to limit what
Just about everything that the villagers did in the story had to do with copying one another. My theme is that social conformity is a senseless behavior that keeps people from seeing the real you. IN all three of my scenes the villagers were doing things they didn’t have to do. They didn’t have to show up to the stoning, but they did. Some people didn’t want to stone Tessie, but they did because that’s what everyone did.
The world will always have criminals, some of whom continue to be defiant towards humanity-these people will have to be punished, however, it is unambiguous that solitary confinement is an inhumane way of dealing with a difficult person. Now, what Hard Rock went through was horrid and the good news is nobody has to be tortured the way he was. The bad news is that people are continuing to be tortured with solitary confinement. The fact that solitary confinement is still legal is baffling. Fortunately, there might be some “more human” alternatives, however things still look bleak.
Advocates of rehabilitation state prison does not work; however, critics of rehabilitation state prison does work as the criminal cannot commit a crime against the public while incarcerated (Cavadino, 2007 p 36/56). Detention and training orders came into force in 2000, this is a two-part sentence with first part in custody and second part back in the community under supervision. This is supposed to give the youth support on release and more positive reintroduction back in to society. Part of rehabilitation are interventions such as, offending behaviour programmes, target neighbourhood prevention programs, mentoring, restorative justice, and intense supervision and surveillance programs under youth offending teams. However, this could lead to the child being labelled and could make matters worse (Burke, 2016 pp 225/256).
"Isolation as a Way of Protection" Sometimes people would rather walk away from their problems instead of facing them. Isolation is a way of feeling protected for some people due to their fear of being hurt because of bad experiences. Walking away and isolation are effective ways of avoiding problems, however, it will not change the reality of life and the good or bad that comes with it. In the movie, "The Village" directed by Shyamalan, the elders isolated themselves and their families in order to be protected from the real world but at the end, the movie shows the audience that people need each other in order to be happy or safe. Lucius helped Ivy when they were younger, but he stopped doing it because Ivy 's sister Kitty was interested
Going into prison is a scary experience and once you enter typically you do not know anyone. Having a friend in there would help overcome the difficulties of transiting. Despite wanting a friend to cope better, be-friending someone in prison can cause conflicts. Conflicts
Consequently, this is why so-called bad experiences can help us develop and evolve more than a pamphlet or sitting around a camp fire can because bad experiences make us stop and think. Although, part of our collective problem is we are not taught to value negative experiences in life but instead focus upon how to accumulate, graduate and conjugate (marry), with no emphasis on introspection because time spent in reflection does not appear a priority anymore. Under the circumstances, instead we have swarms (swathys / swaves) of people who can barely keep up the pace to live their lives, aside from time to sit and think and when we do have a few moments spare, we are bombarded with a multitude of distractions to keep us amused, as well as dumb. In summary, the art of thinking and contemplation has been lost, although not by me, I was ready to inspect everything on my plate, I was just not keen on Sue’s latest
Lastly, shelters can be either too full or too dangerous for people, and if living in cars and streets is illegal there is no place for homeless to live. Fining homeless does not have a positive effect on the community and often homeless end up in jail because of it. If you are homeless it is most likely because you couldn’t afford necessities like food or shelter. By allowing fines to be put on homeless you are setting them up for failure. Also if homeless get sent to jail because of a fine they know have criminal records.
