Also the American prison is inhumane because it’s also underfunded and the prisoners have to face inhumane and unsanitary conditions, such as lack of clean water.US prisons are breeding ground for violence. I think these places are supposed to improve inmates into law abiding people. Instead of doing this they turn even the harmless criminals into the most violent ones. One man is sentenced
This is flawed mainly because it seems to assume that showing people that what they've done is wrong will always accomplish something, that punishing those who commit crimes will deter others from following the same pattern. The problem with prison is that prisons are not a place of rehabilitation. There are people who steal and sell drugs simply because they have no other means of survival. There are people whose lives in the outside world are so terribly difficult that for them, that prison life is a cushier existence than their ordinary day-to-day existence, and many of these people intentionally commit crimes so they will be arrested and thrown in jail, simply so that they can get a decent meal and a bed. These people are then introduced to major offenders, who have not been rehabilitated and become worse than their "mentors."
The role of the prison is to contain criminals, not to torture or humiliate them. Being sent to prison with LWOP is already a harsh punishment because they will no longer be able to integrate with society ever again. When the court sentences a person to life in prison, what does that mean? Is the court punishing them by sentencing the felon to be humiliated, tortured, and raped? If not, the judge should just say the punishment instead of people assuming that it includes torture and humiliation.
The system of Criminal Justice is structure to put criminals away but sometimes they tend to put the wrong people away. Many innocent individuals are put in prison every day for a crime they did not commit. This shows the system is not structure and well organized as it should be because many people are in jail due to false imprisonment. In the movie “Shawshank Redemption” there were a lot of issues that man prison facilities attend to annoy if it did not benefit their needs. The main issues staff and the parole board try to ignore is the physical and sexual abuse that goes on in the prison by other inmates including staff as well.
Street gangs and prison gangs are a true problem and burden that haunts not only the US but also the World. Gang violence is triggered by itself because it is inevitable to take place due to the gangs’ very small tolerance for disrespect. Many efforts have been put forward to stop the monstrosities cause by the unrestrained men and women who are intimidating everyone who they surround. Gang violence affects the whole United States and not just a certain group. Maybe someday there will be a cure to the killings and violence cause but unfortunately we do not have the solution.
Many people go into prison for small offences but to survive they must harden themselves and live a way of life that is tougher than they ever imagined. Many prisoners are willing to kill, trade drugs and other offences. Because of the worsening conditions in the prisons the almost non-existent rehabilitation programs are counteracted. Worse than the prisoner violence is the complete disregard of the prisoners by the guards and staff. Once a prisoner has left prison one would think they would be given help to re-enter society.
For the culture of a gang, being relevant means a lot because that puts the gang in the spotlight and adds even more to the gangs reputation. When a gang is not relevant this can mean two things: one would be that the gang has lost confidence and is disbanded, and the second would be that the gang will become more violent, committing large scale acts of unlawful deeds ... ... middle of paper ... ...o take stress on individuals with a higher chance of breaking they resort to gangs to protect and strengthen them. The cons of being in a gang would be that you have to stay loyal to the gang, if they ask you to murder someone close to you because they got in the way or is part of another gang, can cause a role conflict. Breaking rules of the gang would get you either killed or beaten for a certain amount of time. Though gang life does have structure, it can easily overwhelm a new member.
Despite this, the people living there soon recognize them as a blessing and call them Saints. The two brothers quickly become vigilantes for South Boston, killing mafia members and criminals who are making living conditions harder than they should be. Because of the positive effect on society no one speaks out against them. Their effect on the city is beneficial enough for the local police and even the FBI investigator who is trying to catch them to eventually help out the brothers in any way they can without being suspicious. To correctly apply the Labeling theory, we have to look at how the theory can give a positive and reinforcing label.
So you tackle the guy and pin him to the ground until you can put the handcuffs on him. This was all so a criminal wouldn’t escape but he reports you for tackling him to the ground and says that you used to much force. Now is it unfair that we look at all police officers in a negative light because he thought he was doing the right thing? Now we all know that this isn’t always that case sometimes people make mistakes or get a little to angry and really do use to much force. But why are we punishing all cops for the handful of them that are
The name “chain gang” probably comes from the fact that the inmates were chained together at the legs to reduce the chance of escape. (Reynolds 181) Inmates were often controlled by whips and other harsh disciplines and punishments. People argued that the treatment was just because of the increased chance of escape in chain gangs. (Reynolds 182) People also thought that the chain gangs would deter crime, but studies show that they failed to deter. (Brownstein 179) The living conditions were often unsanitary, crowded, and poorly constructed.
