This act is also linked to the Boston Massacre because it was the last act passed before this event. Declaratory Act The Declaratory Act was passed in 1766 by the Parliament following the repeal of the stamp act. It stated that the authority of the Crown in America was the same as in England and created almost complete Royal control of the government. This made the colonist very angry because they were protesting so much against the stamp act and then the English come in and pull this stuff! Quartering Act This act was part of the intolerable acts and was passed on June 2nd 1774.
In a trial a jury is present. A huge part of the criminal process is the jury selection. The jury is selected from a jury pool. After the trial a sentence is made up, determining a decree of punishment whether it is prison, money, probation or death penalty. In this case for the gunman prison for life is probably going to be the outcome.
“Jails hold a variety of offenders (those who have been arrested, have been detained pending trial, have been sentenced to short terms of confinement for minor crimes, are awaiting transfer to another facility, and are being held administratively for a criminal justice agency). They may hold offenders arrested for public drunkenness or for multiple murders.” (Corrections: An Introduction, Third Edition, 2011) Jails have been around since 1166. The first jail was established in England. A gaol, was the term used by the English for what we call a jail today. These jails in 1166 were horrible places to be detained.
Sentencing is the form of punishment the defendant will receive after being convicted of the crime. If the defendant pleads not guilty then they would receive a trial before a jury. During the trial the facts and

Prison Gangs Dealing with prison gangs is a task that is not easily rectified by prison staff. New and techniques to get messages from gang members inside prison to their counterparts outside prison walls is ever changing. Just when you think you have figured out how they are communicating to each other, gang members come up with new and alternate means to get the message out. This is not only true to gangs with members on the outside, but with gangs that are entirely made up of inmates as well. One possible way to deal with the growing problem of prison gangs and the violence that is often associated with them is to identify members and keep them separated (Demsky, 2009).
Rehabilitation programs are programs that help the felons while they are prison. There are different types of rehabilitation programs for different types of problems. Whether the person has a drug problem or other problems there is programs that are in place to take care of each individual situation. The felon that gets the help while in prison does not always continue on the right path after his/her release from prison, but any help given could change a person’s
SuperMax Prison The question is “are supermax prisons doing what they were intended to do?” My answer will be No. Just like other prison it is a lack of supervision to me.

When we look through history, we can see the ancient Babylon Laws of Hammurabi as the first written source created to control the bad behaviors. Later in the middle ages and medieval times, the crime is considered as same thing as sin. In that time, it was believed that the demons posessed those who didn’t follow the common general public rules and commited crime. In today’s world, the consideration of crime and the conditions leading to a crime have changed. At the end of twentieth century, the general public had not considered a criminal behavior as a psychological disorder but a will.
My thesis is on Criminal Justice, the overcrowding in the Prisons in the United States. In the United States we have the problem where there are inmates in prison on death row ,if they would execute the inmates that is on death row we would have the room to put people in the prison for the crimes they have commit instead of letting these inmates out for dealing in drugs, selling these drugs to our children. What about the inmates that have commit sex crimes are they going to let them out for good behavior. The overcrowding in the Prison has to improve in the United States. I have worked in the Women State Prison in Kentucky for about 17 years, I have seen everything in the systems like the women have beauty salons, kitchen with 3 stove where they can choose to eat in the dorms eat steak or anything they want as long they did buy it from the canteen or go to the mess hall to eat.
