The first one is optimistic and believes that people are fundamentally good, such that prison cells are built so that the prisoner inside the cell can be silent. As the inmate is silent, he or she can meditate on his wrong-doings. This tradition believes that spiritual transformation may take place during the process. The second one is pessimistic, which is why facilities were built to bring about obedience. What is done is to “instill habits of work in people, help build their skills' then they will be rehabilitated.
The Due Process model would say that it is needed to make sure that officers properly follow procedures while questioning or detaining suspect on the street, in the case that something gets out of hand, a jury can see what actually happened. Although, supporters of the Crime Control model say that there shouldn’t be a need for expensive cameras to record everything an officer does, because they should place their faith in the police to uphold the law at their discretion. Advocates of both sides would agree that justice is the
In this article I support some of Foucault’s statement and some I totally disagree with him. This essay shall look at two major things: the experiences of prisoners in prison and the Impact or effect of the prison on its inmates. According to Foucault, he said “prisons do not diminish crime rate: they can be extended, multiplied or transformed; the quantity of crime and criminals remains stable or, worse, increases” Foucault statement above refers to prisons has structural establishment that can multiply and grow but cannot reduce crime rate in the society neither does it fulfil its purpose of rehabilitation, all it does is to expose its inmate to isolation in their little cell making them go through psychological and emotional trauma. I believe the prison is to educate its inmate but instead the inmate suffers from arbitrary power of administrations. Foucault pointed this suffering from arbitrary power as one of the ways the prison cannot fail to produce delinquent “the prison also produces delinquents by imposing violent constrains on its inmate; it is supposed to apply the law and to teach respect

When you have a warden like Luther, willing to help inmates regardless of their criminal record or status, it gives hope that the prison can be called a correctional facility. If the system would have more people who are willing to help the inmates by providing them with available resources that will guide them to succeed, there should not be so many violations in the correctional institutions. On the other hand, when Warden Meko took over, he did not supply any resources or

Objectives of Punishment CJS/230 Introduction to Corrections Objectives of Punishment When it comes to punishment it does not have to be the result of a sentenced handed down. There are three objectives to punishment in the criminal justice system and they are rehabilitation, incapacitation, and deterrence. When it comes to how deterrence was supposed to work is it was designed to discourage a criminal from committing a crime in order to refrain from being sent to prison. The purpose of incapacitation was to remove the criminal from society in order to protect everyone. The purpose of rehabilitation was to assist in changing an individual during confinement to hopefully prevent that individual from committing any more crimes upon
This role makes it possible for our government to continue to institutionalize citizens even after their release. This role can be viewed as an invisible hand, I see it as getting prisoners adjusted to being controlled outside the walls and to make sure they integrate successfully back into the system while stripping away their civil rights. This system enables our government to institutionalize citizens with prisons then after their release through parole and probation to effectively continue to take away civil liberties and more actively place disruptive citizens into a suppressive
Policy Options for Deinstitutionalization with the Mentally Ill and Preventing Recycling them Back into the Prison System A policy proposal from: The State Prisons and Facilities To: The state government The Problem: Deinstitutionalization has hindered the ability of the mentally ill receiving the proper treatment where they are being placed into jails and prisons instead of institutions.

The most important thing that we use prison for is to keep people in our society safe, and to offer protection.
