Before the birth of the modern penitentiary at Walnut Street (Philadelphia) in 1790, prisoners endured unimaginable squalor” (Roth, 2011, p. 86). With the implementation of the new correctional system many changes took place including the way the prisoners were housed, treated, and the way they spent their days. As we have learned the Walnut Street Jail in Philadelphia is considered the birthplace of the American penitentiary. As the article Walnut Street Prison states most prisons were typically built in a U shape with large rooms. The original role for prisons was just to hold criminals and no regard was given for an inmate’s well-being.
The government did allow human rights observers to come and view the conditions of the establishment. By September of 09 the percent of occupants in the facility was 111 which was exceeding the capacity of which we would like to of held. Working for these conditions and viewing these wrongs were not of great pleasure. Around august there were roughly 22,000 prisoners in our countries prisons of which a small amount, yet still many were woman and detainees of both sexes. Of these convicted prisoners, more than half had some type of employment in the prison to earn money.
This concept, however, is thwarted in Brave New World. The society has their "stability to think of. [They] don't want to change. Every change is a menace to stability," (p.224, 225). This shows that the society discourages change, which also means no future growth.
So something besides the fact that these people do not have health care, makes it morally right for them to receive it. And that would be up to Kant to decide. Kant is not the type of philosopher that would be in favor of this because he uses rational principles to think and make his final decisions on things. Which essentially means that an action follows a logical principle; Is it logical or not?. In this case with healthcare, based on what Kant is about and the way he goes about ethics, I do not see him being in favor of this act of giving healthcare to all citizens of the United States.
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. Supermax meant to be a prison to keep closer eye on the inmates. They know what the prisoner in prison for. The supermax is not tough like they use to.
Why for instance, should it be said, that the liberty of the press shall not be restrained, when no power is given by which restrictions may be imposed?” I think it speaks for itself. Why you’ll always say things should be but yet doesn’t give opportunity to be. Anti-Federalist wanted the states to have most of the powers, and have one government. If that was the case we wouldn’t have a really stable
The problem is that people are trying seek laws against the guns and not the people using the guns. The guns are not the problem, people are. Guns cannot function alone and should be regarded as a mechanism to keep things in perspective. Just as many other mechanisms, guns were designed for certain
Should Felons Have the Right to Vote? The right to vote is one of the fundamental principles of democracy. However, the universal suffrage of the adult population has not been conducted in many of today's democracies. Internationally, millions of prisoners and offenders in some countries have been denied the right to vote. The exclusion of this civic process is a threat to democracy.
SUBJECT: 10th Year Anniversary of PREA –Not a Cause to Celebrate… Dear Friends, We are contacting you to assist us with outreach with the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA). Ten years ago this week, President Bush signed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) into law, legislation to end sexual violence behind bars. This decade anniversary is not cause to celebrate. Governors will have to certify compliance with the PREA by this year and many states are not in compliance with this law. During the last decade, the lack of urgency in implementing this law has resulted in nearly 1,000,000 youth being at risk of sexual victimization in adult jails and prisons.
The annual direct costs of operation per prisoner, excluding such indirect costs as administration, medical, and court costs, start at $20,000. That would put the direct operating costs at nearly $90 million per year for Ballot Measure 11 prisoners. Prisons cost so much, in part, because they require permanent walls and twenty-four-hour guards (Whitelaw). We see that this affects us all not just by having to split the bill, yet we are not at all trying to reform
