Modern sentencing practices are outrageous and out of control. People go to prison for 162 years for stealing a car or 25 to life just for simply making a mistake of leaving their child in the car for no longer than 20 minutes without killing or harming the child. Even the innocent get sentenced major years for crimes they didn’t even commit. Lately sentencing has been crazy, so at this point in time sentence reforming is relevant in this case. To begin with, sentence reforming needs to take place because people are getting way to many years for petty crimes they didn't commit.
The panic in the people changed the outbreak by people raiding businesses, when people made their family stay inside and it also changed the outbreak when people leaked information to families. When the people raided the businesses the first person to do it set everyone into a panic because someone saw them doing it and then panicked because they were scared they wouldn't have enough food for their family. So they went in and fought for what they needed. If they would’ve stayed calm and not panicked the government would have been able to control the amount of food everyone got and controlled everyone. Everyone would have exactly what they needed.
Together with his followers they tortured the young woman and assaulted her with stones before Drew broke her neck with his bare hands and decapitated her. The violence continued even after this, Drew did things to her headless corpse that are too disturbing to chronicle here but whatever you’re thinking I assure you, it was far worse. In 1981 he was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole. 5
They’re willing to give people life in prison because they “looked” like they committed the crime. Policies are even shooting random people because they look suspicious. We are all entitled to safety but not everyone feel safe. What hurts the most is that the people that are suppose to protect us and keep us safe are the ones that 's hurting and making us feel unsafe. Living life as a African American is very hard when everything is based off skin color and being black has become a substitute with being a criminal.
1.) After reading New Jack: Guarding Sing Sing I found most interesting that half the time Conover is in danger and scared for his life. But he must learn how to deal with the inmates and survive the spine-chilling conditions. With the United States prison population reaching a record high of over two million inmates, the system was in a crisis. It was more likely for an African American in California to go to prison rather than attending a state university.
The prisoners seemed to be under a lot of pressure. This experiment was out of line. If I were a participant in this experiment as a guard, I would have lay low and be aware that this is only an experiment. I would not take charge; I would correct the prisoners if they were wrong, but I will always try to know my limit.
Mass incarceration is the way that the United States has locked up millions of people over the last forty years using unnecessary and disproportionate policies. Contrary to popular belief, this is racially fueled as most of these policies saw to it that blacks and latinos be locked up for longer than their white peers and for smaller crimes. These racist roots within the system can be traced back to when the first slave ship arrived in the US. But our first major prison boom was seen after the American Civil war. I know that the Civil War was far more than forty years ago.
This man did not deserve freedom because even after going to prison for forgery and finished his time he left prison stealing money from the prison. Stewart was a man sentenced to yuma territorial prison but because he was insane they sent him to an asylum where he spent some time. After he was cleared they sent him back to the prison to finish the remainder of his time and was actually threatening to take his own life but later it was found out that he dug a hole and escaped from the yuma territorial prison. Even though the placement of the prison was clever it doesn’t stop everyone. Something else that made the Yuma Territorial Prison significant and much needed was, yuma was a very small town and with a small town they’re were more criminals than innocent people.
After the media was able to find loopholes in the policy of visitation the CDC contained to make other outrageous policy to prevent exposure for instance visitors were no longer allowed to bring pen and paper into visitation rooms.

After years of bill passing, lobbying, and arguments made for parties both pro and con to the freedom of access for the press. A bill was passed that the media would indeed have access to the prisoners and the public has a right to know what is going on theses institutions.
When juveniles commit crimes, people say they are not fully aware of what they are implementing. People also say that juveniles should not be sent to life in prison because they haven’t lived their full life and they need to experience more within the world. What they have not noticed is that they need to somehow learn from their mistakes. How are they going to learn if they supposably “do not” know what they did
Therefore, many of the migrants were already democrats and they were not afraid to try it again. The Gathering Storm The government demanded that all diggers pay a tax of 30 shillings per month in the form of a miner’s license. This was doubled for non-europeaners.
Michael Scofield gets himself in enough trouble in order for him to get sent to the same penitentiary as his brother’s in. Michael’s main idea is to get his brother Lincoln Burrow’s out of the prison, who has been set up and wrongly convicted, and will be incarcerated within a shorter amount of time, giving Michael a tight deadline. Michael is no harm to anybody in the prison; however, he breaks a lot of rules, and one of them is getting his brother out of jail. Michael accomplished tricking the whole system and planning on how to get his brother out of jail, meanwhile the prison guard’s believed they were just working.
It is shameful, It is deadly.” These people will suffer from this if this isn’t resolved. Many false arrests have been made, innocent people are doing time in prison. Police officers need to be equal with anyone regardless of how they look.
