I have also been a firm supporter of our criminal justice system, and am unsure why this feeling occurred. Nonetheless, my intake process went smooth because this interview was scheduled prior, security entailed going through a metal detector and having a search. Once inside I was greeted by Dr. Dubose and the tour began with a prison guard. I immediately noticed that the workers are watched just as well as the inmates and it seemed like prison procedures followed strict protocol to ensure it functioned properly and effectively. Due to time constraints I was only able to see, inmate in processing, a cell and the recreational area for the inmates before the interview commenced.
Because Alcatraz had some of the most dangerous inmates, it remained needed to have armed guards. Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary has had quite a few nicknames, including “The Rock” and “Uncle Sam’s Devil’s Island.” Alcatraz Prison has many untold stories, but the origin, punishments, famous inmates, and the closure of the prison, becomes
The locks are old on the doors and there are no guards about” (64). The manner in which people are sentenced to the Palace of Corrective Detention does not allow for any civil liberties or rights for the accused. If a person in power sentences another person the Palace of Corrective Detention, there is nothing that person can do about it. The Palace of Corrective Detention is a harsh and unfair place. On the other hand, modern-day U.S. jails seem to be more democratic than the institution of punishment in Anthem.
This article written by Patrick Larmour, an inmate at High Desert State Prison, talks assiduously about the different type of “hustles” found within prison. According to Larmour “cash rules everything” even inside prison, where there is not an abundance of cash. These hustles are other ways for these inmates to earn cash. The way Larmour structures his article he separates the type of hustles that are found within the prison. The first are hustles like smuggling drugs and cellphones, selling pharmaceutical meds, making alcohol and extortion.
The Nuremburg Palace wasn’t chosen by luck, there was many reasons they chose Nuremburg. One of the reasons was that the Military Tribunal liked the layout of the palace because it was a prison set up. . This means that they liked the way the court house was right next to the Nuremburg Prison. Also, tis court house was one of the only not damaged court houses in Germany.
The systems in the Wabash County Jail are low grade and big with the wires sticking out, in easily accessible places. They do have a lot of the more modern ones that are small and round in the hard to reach corners. At the Miami County Jail all of the cameras are small and in high hard to reach places. Miami County has a camera pointed at every spot, literally nothing can happen without the Control Office knowing. The Wabash County Jail has a smaller office that can easily be accessed.

It is important that promises are kept maintaining trust. They could have provided him with a cell that had a view as he was kept in a cage this may have prevented his desire to escape and the attack towards the guard. Halter (2014, 468) states that “in the United States there are no FDA specifically approved medications for treating antisocial personality disorder.” While there is no a specific treatment or medication known to work with patients who suffer from ASPD I would have assessed and treated his symptoms as they
Your discussion was very interesting, frightening, and troubling to read. From the research we have conducted this week, overcrowding seems to be at the top of the list for correctional facilities throughout the country. This one factor is placing the officers that work in these facilities in danger. It’s frustrating to me that so many prisons and jails do not require any type of structure for the inmates. Without structure and overcrowded facilities, a recipe for violence is created.
Many inmates tend to hide objects such as, drugs, illegal substances, copper wires, and so forth. inside their body cavities which may go through the initial security. With these full body scanners, it will be harder for the inmates to sneak things
Race, Class, and Incarceration The main goal of the U.S. law enforcement has been to make the world a safer place but in the process of making the world a safer and “better” place there have been quite some downfalls. One of those many downfalls would have to be the American prison system. In today’s society police enforcement has given so much focus on prosecuting street crime while failing to acknowledge white-collar crime and other major crimes that occur every day. As demonstrated in Trends in U.S. corrections, the U.S. has had the highest rates of incarceration as of 2011 adding up to more than seventy hundred thousand(The Sentencing Project 3). Race and class play an important role on who is punished for such crimes as well as who gets
The largest internal challenge that the Bureau of Prisons faces is adequate levels of bed space and staffing in order to safely manage the population of prisons. The crowding of prisons has been identified as a material weakness and is highly recognized by the Department of Justice, which is the agency in which the Bureau of Prisons is run under. There recently has been a reported decline in the federal prison population, yet it still remains over crowded by thirty percent. This has caused the BOP to increase its inmate to staff ratio, but officer’s safety continuously remains at
