The Swedish population feels that there are those who are dangerous to society and want them locked up securely; however, they also note there is a need "to stick with our philosophy of humanization" (Alvarez, 2005). The escapees, by the way, were soon recaptured but not before the resignation of the Prison Service director; there were also calls for the Justice Minister, Thomas Rodstroem, to resign but he remained in his position (Alvarez, 2005). He did however begin a "comprehensive review of Sweden's prison system," including plans to build a "bunker-style prison for the most violent offenders," though the idea has since been dropped (Alvarez, 2005). The escapes in 2004 were the first made "from Sweden's maximum-security prisons in a decade," and Alvarez suggests that they are due to a "change in the prison population" (Alvarez, 2005). Sweden's prisons, like those in the U.S., are filled to capacity and holding inmates who are "savvier, bolder, more organized and more violent than in the past" (Alvarez, 2005).
Hannah Howarth English assessment task Monster by Walter Dean Myers In his recent masterpiece “Monster” Walter Dean Myers brilliantly presents the story of young 16 year old Steve Harmon to uphold and raise his concerns about the mind puzzling Justice System in America and its confusing handling of minors. Walter skilfully questions the barbaric enforcement of the harsh felony murder laws and the courts sentencing of minors as adults in adult incarceration. He uses a variety of techniques to make his audience stop and think whether the American Justice system is doing right or wrong.

Pohnpei are type of people who are afraid of death if they will hear a prisoner is going to be killed because he or she commits crime. They will surely change because they will be afraid of dying. This will make Pohnpei a very peaceful state. According to Roxanne Rodriquez, author of the book, A Legal Research Guide, stated that these convicted murderers deserve to die (42). The last reason Pohnpei must have death penalty is for the safety for the citizens.
Incarceration further reassures society and the victims that a criminal will receive a fair punishment. Moreover, incapacitation or incarceration protects society from career criminals, and criminals who pose a serious threat to members of the community, but the fact of the matter is by doubling the prison term for armed robbery is not going to correct or solve the underlying issues that force one to commit the act of robbery and in return, the prison systems will continue to
Over the last 15 years the our nations prison population has more than doubled. Many things contribute to this rapid increase of convicted felons. This leads to many different thing our country must deal with. Overcrowded prisons, more money to pay by tax payers, criminals with no skills to help them in the real world of life, are just a couple issues that must be dealt with. All of these things affect everyone in our nation.
Due to this, the number of pharmacists in the state of New York more than tripled during the Prohibition era. For people unable to get a hold of medicinal whiskey and such, there were illegal ways to drink during Prohibition. Organized crime began to flourish in large cities where crime bosses, such as Al Capone, had noticed the incredibly high demand for alcohol and the extremely limited access for the average citizen. This presented lucrative opportunities for gangsters to take over the import, manufacture, and distribution of liquor. Al Capone, and many other criminal groups during this time, were able to build their criminal empires mainly on profits from illegal
Crack cocaine --as much a creature of prohibition as 180-proof moonshine during alcohol prohibition--became the drug of choice in most inner cities. AIDS spread rapidly among injecting drug addicts, their lovers, and their children, while government policies restricted the availability of clean syringes that might have stemmed the epidemic. And prohibition-related violence reached unprecedented levels as a new generation of Al Capones competed for turf, killing not just one another but innocent bystanders, witnesses, and law-enforcement
People who are already wealthy and commit white-collar crimes should not be let off easily. They hurt innocent peoples pockets while pocketing money for themselves. Prison time is like a death sentence to those who grew up having everything they ever wanted. Once people become greedy and start committing crimes like Martha Stewart then they deserve to get punished for stealing money. Prison rehabilitates criminals and once freedom, money and life’s luxuries are taken away from white-collar criminals then they will learn that committing such crimes are not worth prison time.
Criminals are sent to prison to pay for their crimes and to be rehabilitated. The reality is that prison only makes them better criminals. Many would believe that prison is a place where inmates are reformed. Unfortunately that is untrue. Across the United States penitentiaries inmates are literally forced to join prison gangs.
By the 80’s They gained control, and the protection that they were seeking and moved on to the opportunity of taking over the money making criminal schemes while still being incarcerated. The gang engaged in selling narcotics, contraband, and disobeying the prison inmate policy rules which included the murder of other inmates and staff. (Mantaldo, 2014) As time moved on, the gang started to spread into other prison facilities along with their illegal criminal activities. AB gang members started turning on each other and they ended up becoming the weakest gang in San Quentin, California. The fact that prison officials began cutting down on gang violence moving the remaining members of SuperMax facilities Control Units where they can have better control put wedges in their criminal
