This, a system founded upon the principal of rehabilitation, yet in reality, is more interested in imprisoning non-violent criminals indefinitely than providing them the help so desperately needed. It sickens me that the United States allows for such a horrible thing. Private prisons in the United States make millions of dollars off of their own prisoners. It is simple, the more prisoners the prisons have the more money they make. Private prisons enjoy a guaranteed profit with every inmate they house.
To give prisoners tools to succeed out of confinements. Allow more prisoners to reduce their sentences through credit for good behavior. Release more elderly prisoners from Bureau of Prisons custody. Releasing low risk offender will drop prison population a lot. For they will have a lower risk of recidivism and actually become a working part of society then generate a positive incline on recidivism statistics.
The study also measures the bearing of that research on the suppositions derived from the privatization sources. Their study focused on the operations of private prisons, which the authors refer to as the most controversial aspect of privatization (p. 224). The authors address the notion that supporters of prison privatization maintain that it is more cost effective than and just as effective in terms of safety and quality of services as state operation of correctional facilities. Advocates of privatization make these claims based on the notion that private companies can run correctional facilities cheaper than governmental agencies without compromising the quality of services and can feasibly even increase quality by using more up to date administration procedures and expertise, more lenient employment regulations and greater ease in the purchase of supplies and materials (p.
Seven times more black people are put into jails compared to white people. Earlier, he pointed out the money that spent on building jail is six times higher than money on education. Gopnik concludes that the mass incarceration benefits some businesses and companies through building more prisons. From Brecht’s literature, people are left in misery due to capitalist’s profit. It helps to reveal that the importance of profits is more valuable than humans.
I do not believe this bill should be made effective. Yes, this bill may be efficient. It may make the individuals convicted of armed robbery a person for society. They can take a better advantage of the programs offered to them, but I believe that the cons listed outweigh the pros. If the prison term were doubled, what would happen to the rest of the inmates?
Desmond LeSure Professor Bolton ENGL 1020 19 April 2012 “Is the Three-Strikes Law fair and ethical?” There are individuals who were known as habitual criminals who constantly repeated the cycle of committing a crime, getting arrested, and eventually getting released. In 1993, Americans noticed that this was very costly to the public because the process of arresting and trying these criminals was expensive. American tax payers were beginning to become concerned with this issue and wanted something to be done about habitual offenders. Society is pushing the issue that it was more logical to keep repeat criminals in jail and not release them to commit more crimes. Politicians listened to society and executed a law that would put an end to
In other words, do not be so strict in minor offenses. Another solution is to cut back most of the privatized prisons because they are more interested in making millions than running a decent facility. Perhaps the government should be very strict on these private entities and may be they will be more conformable. One option is to allow points for inmates once out on parole. If they get a job so many points will be added, and if they can stay on that job a selected term than they have proving trustworthiness.
I do believe that elderly persons with a life sentence should be released at the age of 80. For many reasons do I believe that the elderly should be released at the age of 80, for example, it is a waste of money, some prisoners are in the million dollar club, when they shouldn’t be. Another being studies show people change while in prison for a long period of time. My first reason, for letting elderly out of prison, would be the cost. Prisoners who are serving a life sentence are in the million dollar club.
The legislation should not increase bail because The Eight Amendment of the U.S Constitution prohibits the excessive amount, excessive fines or cruel and unusual punishment. If they increase bail amount defendants are going to be unable to pay the amount and for that reason there will be more persons awaiting for trial in preventive detention. If more persons are in jail, the costs of prisoner increase and so does the cost of maintenance of prison for the government. All the money that the government uses to maintenance the prisons come from the taxes that the people pay every year, and if the number of prisoner increases the more taxes we have to pay. For all those reason the proposed legislation is the worst idea, not only for the defendants, but also for society as a
In November 1994, to get tough on crime, Oregonians passed Ballot Measure 11, which requires long, mandatory prison sentences for specified crimes (robbery, assault, homicide, and sex offenses) and treats juveniles who commit these crimes the same as adults. That measure carries a high price tag. With Ballot Measure 11, we turned, like many other states, to more prisons, the most costly option for dealing with criminals. In July 1996, Oregon had 8,509 criminals in its prisons. By July 2006, according to the official (April 1997) forecast, Oregon will have 14,976 people in its prisons.
