Punishment as a separate life is when inmates’ reality becomes the life inside prison forming punishment as a new story. Punishment in many ways consist of punishment as part of life in low severity, and high in salience in punishment as a separate life. Punishment as suspension of life is the study that found that inmate’s life inside prison becomes suspended, while life outside prison is a continuing reality passing by in a blur. Punishment as death includes those inmates that believe that a life of punishment is no life at all and that punishment has ended their physical and psychological life as they knew
The prisoners did wrong things, so they are already being punished, as Buchanan’s second conclusion, “That those really responsible for the abuse, on a deeper and more systematic level, still should be brought to justice.” The guards’ responsibility is to take care of the prison, not to misbehave with the prisoners. As a result, if prisoners were punished for their bad deeds, then of course the guards should be punished, too, for abusing the prisoner, because it wasn’t their right to treat them badly. If a guard hadn’t interfered in the prisoner’s life, then the good people have never turned into bad, and this world would have been better. Human nature is like when everyone acts nice to each other, then they are nice; and when someone tries to hurt one’s feelings or ego, then everyone turns to violent behavior. That’s where crime begins.
The second factor that needs to be considered is the routine the inmates faced on a day to day basis and the outcome of the rehabilitation. Prior to Pentonville, prisons were used as holding bays for those on death row and debtors, due to prisons being unfeasible for long term incarceration. Prisons were corrupt environments were ‘prisoners were in the company of criminals of every class and degree’ . Subsequently it can be claimed that having ‘passed time, he returns a greater adept in crime, with a wider acquaintance among criminals’ . During the time of the report the Lords Select Committee had promoted the silent system which had been adopted at Wakefield Goal and Coldbath fields in 1834.
We will discuss some of the reason why correctional professional have relationship with inmates. Or are they looking for love or is it about having power over the inmates. Also why do the inmates do it and the consequent and danger than put fellow co-worker, staff member in by doing this kind of acting with inmates. When correctional officer breaks the ethical code, such as relationships with inmates this type of offense is taken very seriously. Not only is it a violation of the law, policies and procedures, but it puts the safety of all people in the correctional facility at risk.
Diagnostic essay. The harm of solitary confinement in prisons cannot be denied. The effects are very damaging - mental disorders, personality disorders, and social disorders, to name a few. Carelessness about how this policy has been implemented raises very severe ethical concerns about humane treatment of prisoners. Prison isolation fits the definition of torture as stated in several international human rights treaties, and this constitutes a violation of human rights law.
The Treatment of Inmates Samantha McAnally Abstract This paper will be discussing how the prison system, the guard and each other treat inmates. Through a practical view, the argument could be made that these prisoners are being treated to good and not good enough. The society can consider a comprehensible, hypothetical groundwork towards an ethical decision-making concerning the inmates. People should come to a concrete conclusion upon a course of action before making a decision on how to punish them. The Treatment of Inmates When there are millions of people incarcerated throughout the United States, the ethical treatments of prisoner’s human rights require examination.

However, if the individual has done a sexually inappropriate crime I do believe that they should be permanently l labeled for societies
It is impossible yet inside our prison walls this is a very common thing to happen. Prison officials make confused, angry, and psychotic individuals horde into a six-by-ten cell. (Pettiinico, George. 31) People who commit crimes are the product of society. They are a tell tale sign which demands reform.
The American Prison System The fear of going to prison strikes fear in some and in others, it is an opportunity for rehabilitation and a chance to reflect. The magnitude of punishment is currently dependent on the location of the crime and trial as well as the prison where the offender is sent for their punishment. The privatization of the prison system and the lack of efficient and effective punishments through out the United State’s prison systems have left our prisons overpopulated, under funded and mismanaged. Creating standard guidelines throughout both public and private prisons, as well as making uniform punishments that fit their crimes, will make a transfer to a private prison no different than a stay in a publicly funded prison.
