Michael Philbin Ms. Goodhall Junior English 8/5/12 Defects of the American Federal Prison System (Expo RD) The American Prison System has never been perfect, as there is no need to create a luxurious environment for the country’s criminals.

Where were the staff who should have been reporting these crimes to management , if management was not listening then they should have been reported to the authorities and organisations, such as social services and CQC that is what they are there for.
